Meet The Family

“Offering customers and their beloved cats a truly unique experience, lovingly looking after their fabulous felines and being able to hand them back stress-free and happy in a home from home environment is very rewarding. I enjoy pampering and making my guests feel at home and relaxed, it's a real pleasure to care for them like they are my own. It is extremely gratifying to grant cat owners the knowledge that they don’t have to think twice about the care their cats will be receiving - it will be second-to-none and will allow them to enjoy their trip to the full.”

After Harvey watched the Channel 4 show “Compare your Life” featuring Longcroft, he decided that it was time to end his 25 year career of teaching English and Film courses and become a Longcroft hotelier!

Harvey has had numerous pets over the years - from Pinky the goldfish to four cats (Marmite, Socks, Marlon and Kevin) to Harry, a yellow-crested Amazon parrot, who lives with him and his partner now.

  • Superb

    Our two much loved cats, Marmie the ever-hungry hilarious ginger tom, and Purdy the timid sweet little tabby girl, have just had their first ever stay away from home. The accommodation was superb: definitely unbeatable for comfort and cleanliness. Harvey looked after them really well, and sent us an update to assure us they were settling in. He even trained Marmie to use a cat flap, Harvey and John obviously care for both the cats and their owners. We can highly recommend the Longcroft Cat Hotel. We will definitely be booking them in for another holiday when we have our summer dates. We will have to do this as soon as possible - once word gets round they will be fully booked! Our thanks to Harvey and John.


  • A paradise for cats & kittens!

    A paradise for cats & kittens! We left our gorgeous exotic shorthair, Garfield, there for the 1st time this weekend and the care and love he was given was outstanding. Garfield recently had a serious operation so we could only leave him somewhere very special and this was the perfect place. Harvey & John are like cat maitre d's; attentive, so pleasant, all round great people and the cat hotel itself is stunning. Do not hesitate to contact Longcroft Southport, you will not be disappointed, we have already booked Garfield's next stay!!!


  • 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!'

Our Google reviews

We were so impressed with the care and attention given to Merlin - who has now stayed at this hotel twice - that we would not consider anywhere else. Harvey, the proprietor, clearly enjoys his work and has time to entertain & play with the cats. This may be partly because there are not too many rooms which really attracted us to the hotel in first instance. We were able to ask about Merlin's welfare when we were away from home via Whats App & we received prompt responses including photos which were really reassuring. The rooms are spotless and well appointed. We would definitely recommend! A lovely touch, customers receive a cat gift at the end of their cats stay.

Please look no further than Longcroft! The service from Harvey from start to finish was outstanding, very professional and informative. We have never used a cattery before and were very nervous about leaving Jess as she is quite a nervous little cat and doesn't really like to moved, we normally ask our neighbour to look after her whilst we are on holiday as she also gets very stressed when put in her carrier. Harvey invited us down to have a look round and discuss her needs and we were then put at ease that she would be well looked after. The accommodation is very luxurious and spotlessly clean, lots of space to move around and an activity centre to play and sleep on, Harvey spent a lot of time fussing her and is genuinely lovely and affectionate towards all the cats, he also sent us photo updates which were highly welcome! Suffice to say we have rebooked for our summer holiday, I would highly recommend anyone looking to leave their cat in a immaculate, loving and safe environment, you will not be disappointed, see you soon, lots of love Lucie, Neil & Jess x

This cattery is really great, immaculate and spacious accommodation for the cats. Harvey sent us photos of our cats while we were away, a lovely touch. I would recommend it to anyone

Longcroft Cat Hotel in Southport cared for Elsie, our cat, very well. She settled quickly, had lots of attention, and came home unstressed. The rooms are very clean. Harvey discussed her needs with me, and this gave us peace of mind while we were away. We are delighted with every aspect of the care she received, and would highly recommend the Southport Cat Hotel and Harvey's care. Thanks Harvey! love from Elsie >'I'

we were very nervous to leave our elderly cat whilst moving house but felt immediately at ease as soon as we met Harvey at Longcroft. The accommodation really is luxurious and Harvey's loving care is genuine and reassuring. We have no hesitation in giving Harvey and Longcroft the best possible recommendation. Our much loved cat will certainly be visiting Longcroft again.

Our boys came back unstressed and well looked after, first stay and Harvey went out of his way to reassure us that our fur babies were settled. Our cats are indoor cats and did not want them to visit anywhere with outside runs. Highly recommend.
