About The Small Animal Hotel

My name is Danielle and I am the owner of The Small Animal Hotel. I purchased the hotel from Craig and Vicky at The Pets Country Manor in September 2016 due to their cattery expansion. I have always loved all types of animals, and have been lucky enough to have experience with many different animals due to growing up on a farm.

The Small Animal Hotel offers luxury rabbit boarding, guinea pig boarding and all other small animal boarding such as hamsters, bearded dragons, chickens, degus etc. Based in St. Helens, Merseyside.

We have some of the largest rooms in the UK for our guests, with deluxe penthouses offering over an incredible 120 sq ft. of floor space with castles, bridge, mezzanine level and ladders, all with safety banisters!

The Small Animal Hotel is set in a beautiful sandstone converted barn located in a peaceful and tranquil countryside surrounding within easy reach of the M62 - close to Liverpool and Manchester. Our barns are alarmed and have CCTV, we are fully insured and have smoke alarms fitted.

I have done a number of different jobs since completing my BSc Psychology and Internet Technology degree in 2007. However, it is only now that I feel I have my dream job - working with animals every day at The Small Animal Hotel.

I have very high standards and treat all of the animals here as one of my own, with love and affection. All of our accommodation and runs are on hard standing and we only use DEFRA approved cleaning products such as F10. We would never use grass as this cannot be cleaned and therefore increases the risk of spreading disease and virus.
