“Safe & friendly kennels”

Written on: 15/08/2018 by Liseyd (1 review written)

I have used 5 star over the years for our old lab who LOVED visiting and always came out happy and well looked after. Our current lab is very nervous and has separation anxiety, I was reluctant to use any kennel for him, however I have just collected him after a 2 week break from 5 Star and he has come out happy and bouncy and has obviously been well cared for.. he doesn't particularly like men but was not nervous around the owner when I collected which shows me he has spent time with him… Read Full Review

“Reassured”

Written on: 01/01/2016 by Jaqrl (1 review written)

You always wonder if your dog is happy in kennels. Well we no longer do, given that Barney our labradoodle actually dragged me in the last time ( his 4th visit)!!. He's always happy when we pick him up and in very good condition ( maybe a little plumper, but don't we all put on a bit on holiday!). The whole place is spotless and always has a nice feeling about it, and so quiet. Already booked another 2 stays for 2016… Read Full Review

“Happy Dog,Happy owner!!”

Written on: 04/09/2015 by Tracy_23 (1 review written)

We have just collected our 7 Year old Cocker Spaniel from 5 star Kennels, where he has been for the last 3 nights.Cookie has never been put in kennels before and so we were worried how he would get along. But the happy,bouncing healthy and clean dog we collected confirmed he had been very well looked after. He was obviously very at ease with the owner and even jumped up at him for a pat as we left. We will definitely be using 5 star again, what a relief to find a place where we can leave our… Read Full Review

“very pleased”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by nickndel (1 review written)

It was the first time my lurchers had been put in kennels, so was a bit worried about their experience, but upon my return realised I needn't have worried as they were both fine, and one of them who is usually nervous of men, made a big fuss of the owner, confirming she was ok! The kennels are spotless and facilities truly first class. Both my dogs had been very well looked after, they were both happy and very clean! The staff seemed genuinely fond of my dogs and had obviously taken time to get… Read Full Review

“good with dogs, but not people.”

Written on: 16/08/2013 by Bonniejess (1 review written)

The reason I have given this only a 3, I will explain. I am perfectly happy with how my dogs have been cared for, and am a returning customer who leaves a tip. On my last visit, I turned up for my dogs, was very stressed, was in a hurry, with family issues. Did not know kennels did not take cards, my bill was £30 I had £29.80 on me, I had given a £5 tip last time, but was made to drive all the way back to Great Dunmow, I am not from the Dunmow area so do not know it well. I found that… Read Full Review

“Massive Thank You.”

Written on: 06/07/2013

I would just like to say a massive thank you for looking after Darling our cat, she returned to us a changed cat in a good way. Ihad never ussed a cattery in the 15 years we have had Darling, and the thought of putting her into a cattery terrified me. She has high blood pressure, is totally blind and is a stressed cat so I wasn`t expecting her to like it too much. However, in April we checked her in to 5 Star Boarding Cattery, Joan was amazing, I was a mess !! Joan reassured me everything would… Read Full Review

“Something to hide?”

Written on: 09/06/2013

Having looked around several kennels in the last few weeks where as long as its within opening times you are welcome to view them, I turned up at 5 star also within opening times and was told that I couldn't look around them without calling first to make an appointment. A horrible man who possessed no people skills whatsoever was at reception and was very curt with us. This suggests to me that by having to make an appointment they can prepare the kennels for an inspection. This begs the… Read Full Review

“Simply the best”

Written on: 04/03/2013 by Charlotte36 (1 review written)

I have had a few dogs visit these kennels over the years and for each animal 5 star has adapted for their needs. I have boarded old sick dogs who needed medication and young puppies who are more children than pets. They look after them so well and The dogs are well exercised. My dogs have never had to be dragged out of the car because they consider the kennels an exciting place. After a bad experience at another kennel where my dog was attacked and as a result suffered a long time with an… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2012 by levell (1 review written)

Found this boarding kennels after searching for a while online. We live about 30 minutes away but it was the only kennels that had space left for my dog at short notice, but am i glad that i found them. I was a bit nervous as i had never left my labrador before and she is only 8 months old. The place was spotless and very modern and clean, and the owners were lovely and spent time talking to us, putting my mind at ease. Bonnie went straight off with one of the owners without even looking back!… Read Full Review

It was the first time my 2 sprollies were guests at 5* this year and I would thoroughly recommend them. The kennels are spotless and facilities truly first class. Upon my return both my dogs had been very well looked after, they were both happy and very clean! The owners have definately got this right with lots of dedication and passion to each individual pet. I am so happy that I have found somewhere that my pets enjoy going and also the peace of mind of not having to worry whilst away… Read Full Review

“Everything is great at 5 Star Kennels ”

Written on: 18/08/2011 by JonBouffler (1 review written)

We have been boarding our dog with 5 Star for 2 years and we always do this with the confidence that she will be looked after very well and be returned to us as if she has also been on holiday. The owners are very clearly devoted to their lodgers and our dog is exercised and cared for in the best possible way. The rates are reasonable and we leave our dog at 5 Star knowing she will return a happy dog. … Read Full Review

“ ”

Written on: 23/07/2010


I was quite nervous about leaving my two dogs - an excitable Red Setter and huge (and obstinate) Old English Sheepdog - as the only other time they've ever been left at a kennel they both went on hunger strike! No such problem at Five Star Kennels and they emerged well fed, beautifully groomed and perfectly happy having had a nice field to run in and been made a complete fuss of for five days. Actually I also quite like going there as it's a friendly place and they make a fuss of me… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2010 by southsue (1 review written)

Our Golden Retriever Max is 9 and we have been using 5 Star Kennels for the past 3 years on moving to Felsted. The owners always seem to treat him as if he is one of there own dogs. We pay Angela to groom Max before we collect him and he always comes out better looking than when he went in, she does a wonderfull job on such a thick coat. I would have no hesitation in recommending 5 Star and have already done so.

Written on: 18/06/2010 by margeymarge (2 reviews written)

5Star is excellent for dogs and owners! Our 3 sensitive Lurchers pant with excitement when we enter and don't even notice that we have gone! The owners give very personal attention and our hounds run free and have the time of their lives. Particular attention is given to food likes and dislikes and a feeling of belonging. Our hounds were sleek, healthy and very contented when we picked them up and were not anxious to go home!… Read Full Review

My Chocolate Lab (Maya) has stayed on many occasions and gets excited every time we return; always well looked after; run by first class people who were very understanding when I was delayed abroad because of volcanic ash, can not be faulted. Plenty of space for walks and rest time feel very happy when I leave Maya knowing she will be cared for… Read Full Review
