Following the successful launch of the atFrits clothing label in June this year, our top dog, Frits Smit (aka Dogald Trump), announced that Cape Town’s first-ever five-star dog hotel, atFrits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre, will be opening very soon. That’s right: As of 1 December 2015, our four-legged friends will be able to rest their weary paws in style while on the road with their humans.
Frits’s human and founder of atFrits, Yanic Klue, says, “ There is a great need for a good dog care facility in South Africa who really takes the responsibility of looking after your beloved pet very seriously. We have put strict security measures in place, which allow you to monitor your dog at all times. Therefore, you can see what they eat, where they play and when they return from their morning walk. Owners can relax and get on with their day, knowing that we are passionate about the well-being of their pets.”
atFrits is your canine companion’s gateway to doggie heaven. The hotel offers tailored packages to suit your best friend’s specific needs. Hotel facilities include round-the-clock care, a salon and spa, a retail store, gourmet meals from our a la carte menu, DSTV, webcams allowing owners to monitor their pets’ stay 24/7, themed movie nights, a snack bar and a vet to keep your pooch’s nose wet and his tail wagging until you return. Whether it’s a socialising session, going for their daily 45-minute walk in nearby local dog parks, taking a nap in one of the luxurious private suites or simply getting a “pawdicure” at our doggie spa – atFrits is a one-stop shop for your dog.
Architect and hotel design guru Greg Viljoen, of DesignLab, is responsible for the design and construction of the atFrits Hotel. As a dog lover and owner himself Greg completely understands our four-legged friends, and knows what they need to be happy. As the architect behind some of South Africa’s most beautiful hotels; Upper East Side Hotel, The Cape Grace and The Fan Court in Mossel Bay, to name a few, Greg knows what is required to make sure your pet is as comfortable as you are in one of these hotels. Greg explains, “ my dogs are like an extension of our family, and I am very particular about how they are taken care of, keeping this in mind I have designed the atFrits hotel to suit your dogs every personal need, making sure your dog is safe and well looked after”.
The hotel is conveniently situated at 121 Castle Street (Corner of Buitengracht and Strand Street), right in the heart of Cape Town, for a quick and hassle-free drop-off or pick-up. Yanic Klue has gone to great lengths to ensure that atFrits is both convenient for us humans and luxurious for our furry friends. atFrits Dog Hotel and Daycare is a franchise and will soon launch more dog hotels around South Africa.
