We took our kids (age 2 and 5) to see this at the cinema. Initially it seemed way over their heads and looked as though it was going to be quite serious and heavy going. After a while though I noticed my girls were hooked. It had a good balance of humour and cute animals doing daft things, with more poignant human moments. My girls were smiling through much of the film and my eldest was seen wiping her eyes after a more sad scene. Both came out of the film raving about going to watch it again... and we enjoyed it to. It'll not win awards but is a good family film, worth a watch or two.

My daughter and I saw this at the cinema. Yes, the acting is a bit hammy, but it has excitement and a sweet message and dogs that talk (sort of) and in this age of craziness it's a breath of fresh air. We loved it and have pre-ordered on dvd.

This is a superb, funny and highly entertaining film. The acting is excellent and I still can't decide whether the dogs, adults or children steal the show as they are all brilliant. There is a high class adult cast list which will keep adults entertained - it's worth the price just to see Lisa Kudrow and Kevin Dillon hamming it up as terrible rock stars and the world's worst foster parents compared to the quiet authority of Don Cheadle. This is such a humourous film it will have you laughing out loud. The highlight is the 'hotel' which the children develop into a dogs' wonderland with some absolutely fantastic fun and practical inventions.
Rather than just being a 'for laughs' romp there is also a strong understory of the two children desperately trying to stay together in foster care rather than being separated into different childrens homes because of the transitional age of the older sister. It's treated matter of factly rather than sentimentally and provides a much stronger than average plot for a childrens' film.
Any children who liked High School Musical should also like the teen romance story of the sister and pet shop assistant.
The end of the film does crank up the tear factor of the 'unwanted' children and dogs in the final few minutes and perhaps then it could be accused of being a hollywood mush fest but I thoroughly enjoyed it and had more than a tear in my eye.
Very highly recommended especially for dog lovers. My 9 year old daughter and 7 and 4 year old sons love this film and so do I.

Cute dogs and kids trying to do good things for the dogs - a great combination for a fun dog loving son. It was a xmas stocking filler so whilst as an adult it might not be your thing if your child loves it then you have done a good thing.

If you are a dog lover you are sure to love hotel for dogs. The star of the film is undoubtedly Georgia, the French Bulldog, who steals all the scenes.

The film is about 2 orphan children, who are based with unsuitable foster parents (Lisa Kudrow and Kevin Dylan). The foster parents are more interested in pursuiting a career in rock and roll, than looking after the foster kids played by (Emma Roberts and Jake Austin).

Their only distraction from the annoying foster parents is in looking after the abbandoned dogs at the derelict hotel. The boy comes up with all sorts of time saving ingenious inventions to exercise, feed and care for the dogs.

A film for all the family, even dads will like it.
