• You have got it just right!

    ‘We are so happy to have found Abi and her beautiful cat hotel. Our two cats stayed for the first time recently and seemed to settle in immediately. We were pleasantly surprised to hear from Abi while we were away informing us that they were quite happy and totally chilled. This type of reassurance, the wonderful setting and Abi’s genuine love and knowledge of cats makes this Hotel by far the best we have ever come across and we have owned cats for many years. We have already booked again for September. Well done, Abi you have got it ‘just right!’

  • I wish that we could give more stars to Emma!

    I wish that we could give more stars to Emma! This was the first time we ever boarded our Burmese and she can be a grump when not in her comfort zone. Emma really worked with us to ensure that her stay was a great experience, both for Saffron and for us. From making sure that she had a “corner suite” to being really flexible on “check-in” and check-out” times and even sending us an update email during our holiday, Emma really made the whole process wonderful! We could not speak anymore highly of the Winchmore Hill Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel!

  • So impressed with the excellent service and cleanliness

    I have used Longcroft Cat Hotel St Albans for the first time and I was so impressed with the excellent service and cleanliness of the rooms that I would recommend it to any cat owner. Ollie loved his little bed and when I collected him he was calm and looking very clean and smart. Gill obviously adores cats and made him feel at ease during his stay. Thank you Gill and a big kiss from Ollie

  • I would recommend Gill to anyone

    I would recommend Gill to anyone that has cats and assure you that they will be looked after exceptionally well and they will also enjoy their holiday whilst you enjoy yours! Trying to find a cattery that you trust, feel that your cat is safe and in a clean and healthy environment is difficult to do (especially if you have not left your cat before) but as soon as I met Gill and delivered our 6 month Kitten Peanut to her I felt so happy and any worry soon disappeared. Gill is a lovely caring person who treated Peanut as one of her own, The Luxury Cat Hotel is spotless clean, plenty of room in the suite and he was looked after so well I don’t think he wanted to come home!

  • Longcroft Royston and Letty are outstanding

    Very clean and well thought out accommodation for my 2 fur babies! Letty answered all my questions beforehand and all went very smoothly. Upon collecting my cats I could tell they were relaxed, happy and had been well looked after, in fact one in particular didn’t want to get in his carrier to go home! Have booked them in for my next holiday and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Longcroft.
