Meet The Family

Helen was inspired to open a Longcroft hotel when she read of Abi's vision to provide luxury holidays for feline guests.

"I love pets and have had a rescue cat or two for 20 years. When in Geneva I adopted two multilingual Swiss cats, Pluton and Persee, who loved a luxury apartment lifestyle overlooking the lake. Persee returned to the UK with me and enjoyed a new life as a country cat in Hampshire. My present cat, Mr Bentley, is a country boy, who likes to spend as much time as possible outside, when not sleeping off his exercise in the most comfortable chair in the house.

Having experienced a range of different care providers for my own pets, I know how important it is for families to have confidence that their cat will be kindly and professionally looked after after while they are away. As I live on the premises, and the hotel will remain small, I can ensure that guests receive a high level of attention, especially if they are nervous, or have not previously enjoyed stays away from home."

  • Helen made sure that Denzel felt secure and happy

    Denzel is a rescue cat and I didn't want to put him in a cattery whilst we moved house, as he would think that he had been abandoned again. Longcroft was the right choice for him. From the beautiful cat bed to the amazing scratch post/hammock/plaything the venue is perfect for pampered pets. In addition to the 'room' the thing (well, person really!) that made Denzel feel welcome was the lovely Helen. When we arrived Denzel had got a little upset and Helen made sure that he felt secure and happy before we left him to his little holiday. To reassure us even further, we received emails from Denzel telling us what he had been up to and how he had enjoyed the A La Cat menu that we had arranged for him. Denzel and I would highly recommend Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Fontwell as somewhere ideal for your cat to stay.

  • What a great find!

    What a great find! Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely Helen who showed Belle to her suite, which was immaculate and had everything a cat could wish for. I knew that Belle would be in safe hands but I was slightly worried that she would be reluctant to leave! During Belles stay we received an email update to let us know she had settled well which was reassuring. Helen has since sent me a few photos of her stay. I would highly recommend this cat hotel. Thank you!

  • Helen has permanent custom from us and our babies for life!

    We have 3 month old Ragdoll kittens Mitsy and Crunch and after visiting Helen at Longcroft to have a look around I simply knew they had to come here whilst we went on holiday! We drove over an hour and a half to Helens and it was worth every second. Not only did she look after them extraordinarily well but kept me informed all week on how they were doing with emails and pictures! They came home like they had never been away! Helens warming nature immediately put us at ease and she has permanent custom from us and our babies for life! Would thoroughly recommend you visit to see for yourself. Big big thanks to Helen!

  • our kitten Betsie had a fabulous stay

    Our kitten Betsie had a fabulous stay in the Snowdrop Suite. We felt very relaxed leaving her in such capable and caring hands. The setting is gorgeous and the suites are all clean, safe and warm...we weren't sure if Betsie actually wanted to come home again! She will certainly be back for another holiday. Thank you Helen for taking such good care and for your excellent service.

  • Outstanding. Highly Recommend!

    'The care and service provided was outstanding - Aly really does a good job. The suites are spacious. light and airy and there are plenty of things to keep the cats entertained. Proof was that we struggled to get ours out of the suite when we came to pick her up! Would highly recommend.'

Thank you Helen, for looking after Louie so well! He's never been away from home before and I was quite anxious about the experience. But Helen's hotel was lovely, light, spotlessly clean and the guests were all happy, looked beautifully groomed and had lots of toys. Louie settled in quickly and while I was away Helen sent regular updates and photos. Louie came back chilled and with his coat gleaming as well a sa bag full of his favourite toys and treats. THANK YOU! Can't recommend you more highly...

What a find! Helen and her lovely cat hotel are amazing! If you are looking for a really special experience for your pet do not hesitate to contact her. This has been Oscar's second short visit to Longcroft in preparation for a longer stay. I was very nervous at the beginning, as until I came across Helen, I had not been able to find anyone I could be totally comfortable with to care for our precious Oscar, so much so that we had not taken a holiday in the past 5 years since adopting him. Helen is totally dedicated to giving your pet a home from home experience, and nothing is too much trouble. The enclosures are absolutely spotless and her care is faultless. She has kept in touch with us throughout, with numerous emails and photos which has also been very reassuring. I am totally relieved to have discovered Longcroft at last, and will definitely be leaving Oscar in Helen's care in the future whenever the need arises. Thank you Helen so much!

My boy has only ever allowed myself and my son pick him up, apprehensive and nervous at first he went and asked Helen to pick him up. Kindness combined with exemplary high standards making the cat feel relaxed would recommend highly

We were very anxious about leaving behind our Tigger for 2 weeks whilst on holiday in Australia. Thank you so much Helen for your wonderful service. We missed him loads while we were away but receiving your regular email updates and lovely pictures put our mind at ease. Thanks again. It was much appreciated. I totally recommend Helen and the Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Fontwell. xx

What a find! We were so relieved to find the lovely Helen and her spotless yet warm and comfy luxury cattery. Helen's extra loving care helped for a smooth transition after moving our 8 cats 300 miles from their home in Yorkshire to their their new home in Sussex. We can't rate Helen highly enough. Yes you will pay more money then your average cattery BUT this is not your average cattery, it's a hotel and is far superior. Helen offers a genuine home from home atmosphere and lavishes her attention on all her guests. We had complete peace of mind whilst we were away from our cats and hope to send to them to Helen again in the near future for a luxury holiday!

Helen has looked after Smartie for 4-5 day periods, and there was no question of going anywhere else when we booked our holiday. We were gone for 3 weeks this time and knew she would be in the best possible place. We received email updates with pictures that were comforting while we were away.We have told many people about Helen, as the quality of accomodation, cleanliness and attention to detail are second to none. Helen is a lovely person who is kind and loves cats, she is the only person we would trust to look after our beloved moggy. When our return was delayed by a day she made special arrangements to help us out at very short notice. Thank you Helen, see you next year.

Helen's beautiful hotel is more than a hotel, it's cat's heaven. My feline son Russell stayed there for over two weeks whilst we were away and I couldn't be happier and neither could he. Helen is a cat angel and Russell loved his stay so much that I have already booked his Christmas visit. I can finally rest that every time I go abroad, which happens at least three times a year, my furry son can also enjoy a wonderful holiday with the lovely Helen !!Lots of love and purrs,Claudia Wareing and Russell

Thank you Helen for giving our two kittens the most wonderful holiday. They’ve never been away from home before but the care and attention they received were more than I could have hoped for. The cat hotel is beautiful, bright and so friendly and the regular email updates throughout the week were brilliant! I thoroughly recommend Helen and the Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel and our cats can’t wait to stay again!
