Zagame's House is Going Fur-Friendly!

Home is Where the Paws Are … 

Everyone loves going on a holiday or staycation, but for pet owners, there is one small downside; the inevitable question of where their furry family member will stay! 

Zagame’s House in Melbourne doesn’t discriminate, and see all types of pets as family, which is why the newly opened boutique hotel is making its plush rooms available to pets with paws, claws, and everything in between!

Aside from guests being able to enjoy the pet-preferring city of Melbourne with their fur-baby right by their side, all companions will be treated to several bespoke services at the hotel. 

This includes a “Treat Yo Fur-baby” bag of goodies, exclusive in-room dining menu for pets, a “Furry Movie of the Month” as part of its free movie selection, bonding sessions with their Dog of the House, Hugo the Groodle (subject to availability) and exclusive access to special fur-friendly services via their partners, including pet walking, pet sitting, grooming, and personal training.

To celebrate this exciting launch of the new Fur-Friendly accommodation offering, the hotel has commenced its search for “Zagame’s House’s Top Fur Model”

The online competition, running throughout the month of October, asks proud pet owners to enter a photo and 100 words on why their favourite fluff ball is the fairest (or fluffiest) of them all! The winning prized pet member will be the first ever fur-baby to check into Zagame’s House and star alongside their Dog of the House, Hugo the Groodle in the promotional campaign for the new Fur-Friendly facilities.

The winning fur-baby and its parents will also receive two nights’ accommodation at Zagame’s House (including breakfast), a pampering session, and a complimentary photo and video shoot. Becoming the face of the Zagame’s House’s new Fur-Friendly services, will no doubt, help launch their mammal modelling career!

Zagame’s House has also sniffed out a worthy cause to partner with, donating $10 from every fur-friendly booking to The Lost Dogs’ Home - with plans for a longer term charitable partnership in the works.

Recently launched in May 2019 on Lygon Street Carlton, design-driven Zagame’s House is the result of a complete 18-million-dollar transformation of the former hotel operated by the Zagame family for 16 years. The extensive renovations were led by Robert Zagame, Architect Robert Ficarra, Interlandi Mantesso Architects, and interior design team Linda Whitfield, Surround Style and Kas Makohon, Lukas Partners, with many of the furnishings and artworks being sourced and selected from boutique, local suppliers by the Zagame brothers themselves. Distinctive commissioned artworks completed on-site by artists Ryan Foote, Rosie Wood, Lulu Zagame and Karl Gordon spearhead the eclectic aesthetic of the hotel and showcase the creative DNA of its location.
