The news is out! Our state-of-the-art $9 million Pet Hotel has taken off at Adelaide Airport.
Today was the big day when we officially opened and we know you want to see inside. Check out our gallery of photos from the recent media shoot and you can also book a tour of Beau’s to see this amazing facility for yourself.
Tours run Monday to Friday 12 pm and 1 pm. Call us on 8115 6080 to book.
The Chief Executive of Guide Dogs SA/NT Aaron Chia said it was believed Beau’s would become an iconic destination for pets with owners being able to travel knowing their pet would be enjoying a holiday too with the trusted care offered by Guide Dogs SA expert staff.
Mr Chia said that through Beau’s people would be supporting their community with all profits from Beau’s going towards helping to fund Guide Dogs services for people living with disability.
Beau’s Pet Hotel is as big as Guide Dogs SA’s reputation – the size of four Olympic swimming pools.
The climate-controlled facility has 262 standard and luxury rooms with three choices of standard or luxury accommodation available for dogs: classic, deluxe or premier rooms, and two options for cats: loft or penthouse condo.
The classic dog suite will have plenty of room to move, soothing music, and tempered glass doors and viewing panels means dogs won’t feel hemmed in. Deluxe suites are the alternative for pooches that need a little more privacy, being housed in a private wing and featuring creature comforts of home like a large screen TV and luxury bed. The Premier suites have a spacious suite, private covered and enclosed courtyard and access to an outdoor play yard complete with water feature.
For cats, the loft condo has a private litter box, soothing music and secluded sleeping area, and the penthouse offers a two-storey condo with plenty of room to stretch out and explore their home away from home.
There’s also various add-ons available for fur-kids staying at Beau’s including the ability for owners to Skype their pets to check on how they are enjoying their stay.
Named after Beau, the first officially trained Guide Dog in Australia, it will open in Guide Dogs 60th Anniversary year; a milestone project for a milestone year.
“It’s touching that the little dog, Beau ,his loyal service and legacy of trusted care will live on at Beau’s Pet Hotel,” Mr Chia said.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said Beau’s Pet Hotel is an integral part of the Adelaide Airport’s 30-year vision.
“Adelaide Airport is continually looking at new ways to innovate and provide better services to customers, so we’re delighted to partner with such an iconic organisation in Guide Dogs SA/NT to help deliver this pet hotel in the inner-metro area,” Mr Young said.
“The great news is we’ll have two hotels on the airport – one for our customers alongside the terminal and one for their pets!”
Beau’s will be officially opened by Guide Dogs SA/NT Patron, His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le, Governor of South Australia on 14 September 2017.
