Meet The Family

Loria and her family were gripped by the Channel 4 Show “Compare your life” where Longcroft was featured as one of the “perfect lives” on offer! Loria said, “Watching the TV show was a real roller coaster. I was bursting with excitement as my dream job was potentially going to become a reality.”

They felt that joining the already successful Longcroft team could truly transform their lives as it embraced their passion for cats and desire for a better work life balance allowing them to offer the same level of care they had wanted but couldn’t find for their own beloved cats Tippy and Tyson the tabbies and Bluetooth the British Shorthair.

"After 35 years of working with young children it's time for me to give that love to cats. I have a lot of patience and a naturally caring personality having had a role at work nurturing young deaf children. I love teaching but need a new direction in life. I feel ready to walk away from the classroom and into my garden to be with my fur babies."

  • Emma put me at complete ease

    It was so hard to decide what to do with our precious British Shorthair Terry Cat when my husband and I had to travel earlier this year. We looked at lots of options and when I spoke to Emma at Winchmore Hill Longcroft Cat Hotel on the telephone, she put me at complete ease and the decission was made Terry would be staying at Longcroft. Terry stayed with Emma for approx 18 days and Emma sent us regular photos and health updates. Emma was even accommodating when we changed our flights and collected Terry few days earlier than planned. Terry was well groomed and seemed very happy when we collected him. We have now booked Terry in for Christmas Break.

  • Calm, organised and reassuring

    Our cat Hannah hadn't stayed away from home before, and we were in some turmoil because of building works. Emma was superb - calm, organised and reassuring. Hannah stayed with her twice, and was very happy in her wonderful suite. The photos were great as well. The whole experience was a great relief and about the only aspect of our project which was delivered on time and was better than expectations! I would like to give Longcroft Winchmore Hill the highest recommendation possible.

  • Amazing service and dedication

    Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel provides a really great service and our cat Tara was really well when she stayed there, as we could see from the photos. Tara has already stayed in two different Longcrofts and the service and dedication is always amazing. We advise this hotel to our friends since we know our cat will be in good hands.

  • Emma was brilliant!

    Freddie, our 4 year old stayed with Emma for 9 days in May. We homed Freddie from the blue cross 6 months ago so weren't really too sure how he would react. The facilities at Longcroft are excellent and Freddie was already getting quite settled when we left him. Emma kept in regular contact with us via email and told us of a slight issue with Freddie settling in. Emma was brilliant, very patient and tried a number of things to try and find out what the problem was with Freddie. It wasn't long until we discovered he's super fussy about the type of litter he uses... Once Emma changed the litter to wood pellets all the issues disappeared. When we went to collect him, he was so settled and didn't really want to leave! I can't thank Emma enough for being so patient with our little man and for taking such great care of him. Longcroft is the only place Freddie will visit when we go on holiday as it's so reassuring to know that the 4 legged friend you love so much is getting great care. Freddie is looking forward to seeing Emma again in November and for 3 weeks this time!

  • The care and attention Emma gives is first class

    I was very happy indeed with the excellent facilities at Longcroft and the care that Basil received on his recent stay with Emma in Winchmore Hill. He is an older cat and this was the first time he had been away for 7 years. I was concerned about him, but Emma gave me complete reassurance and confidence that he would receive all the love, care and attention that he normally gets at home. Whilst I was away I received a photo of him and several text messages that completely put my mind at ease. The facilities are exceptional, the care and attention Emma gives is first class and the choice and quality of food is just like home cooking. She truly loves her cats and I would have no concerns in booking Basil in again and also recommending Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel to my friends. Thank you so much Emma.

The long chain of 5* reviews here says it all but my cat loved it. Actually could tell he didn't want to leave there after a week long stay. Wonderful place for pampered cats. The business is run by a lovely lady who clearly cares for her guests.

My cat is very dear to me so I am always nervous when I have to go away. I wish I found Longcroft and Loria before hand as I felt more at ease than ever when I left her there in the best hands! Not only were the facilities fantastic, Loria was very gentle and loving to my little one and you can see she is a cat lover immediately. The attention and detail that goes in for each cat guest that stays is wonderful and I very much love the individual playtimes she gives them. Loria also sent me daily updates and pictures of her stay which was always a delight to receive. My kitty was very relaxed and happy when I picked her up! I would not go anywhere else now 5 star all round !! Thanks again for taking such good care of my darling cat

Our cat Keith had a lovely stay at Longcroft in April. Despite being a very demanding and high-maintenance Savannah cat, Loria made him feel at home and sent us daily photos of him playing and relaxing. It was great to have this level of contact from Loria, as it was the first time we had left Keith alone for an extended period and we were worried about his welfare. We needn't have been, he seemed comfortable and well cared for. On our return he was immediately his normal self.

Thank you so much to Loria for looking after our baby Chaise. He is a very shy and a nervous cat and we were a bit worried because it was the first time for Chaise in the new cattery. But we needn't have worried. When I dropped Chaise off, I knew Loria was going to take good care of him. Loria is such a lovely lady. She is so so calm and loving, Chaise settled in really quickly. We received email updates from Loria telling us what Chaise had been doing and pics of Chaise every day. My husband and I were thrilled to read them and see pics of Chaise playing. I have already booked the cattery for my next break. The suites are beautiful and clean. Thank you ever so much Loria.

Loria took amazing care of my two kitties - one of which is quite nervous and timid. Loria kept me updated on how they were getting on, with plenty of pictures, even sending me a late email to tell me my shy cat had ventured out of the cat tree! It really made my night, my partner and I were delighted. I would not hesitate to recommend Loria - she looks after the cats like they were her own and understands how hard it is to leave your cats behind. I will definitely go back to East Barnet Longcroft. Thank you Loria!! =^.^=

This was the first time we had to find a cat hotel for our Freddie. I was really stressed about leaving Freddie, especially knowing how shy and nervous he can be. Loria is a lovely person born for this job, (Freddie came straight to her with his tail up which never happens with people he doesn't know). Loria was sending us updates with pictures of Freddie enjoying his holidays, so I wasn't worried about him at all! Thank you very much Loria, I'd give more than 5 stars if only it was possible :)

Had a wonderful dealing with Loria whilst I was away on vacation and most importantly my kitten did too. The facilities were just great, very clean, comfortable and fun environment for the cats and I was very impressed with the personal care given to my lovely Mimi. Wholeheartedly reccomend and would use again! Me and Mimi thank you!

Our two cats had the time of their lives here - they had the upgraded package and it was lovely to get regular emails from Loria while we were away letting us know how they had enjoyed their treats and which toys they enjoyed playing with, as well as the lovely photos. One of them had a slight stomach upset and Loria looked after them wonderfully, keeping us informed and liaising with our vet. Arranging it all including the chauffeur service was so easy too. Thank you so much! They will be back!

Loria was lovely and sent us daily updates and photos of both our cats. The kitties were nice and relaxed when we picked them up. We are so happy with the service and will definitely leave them with Loria again next time we go away!

My wife and i will definitely bring our furry friends back to Longcroft. It is important to us that those looking after our cats are animal lovers and Loria is full to the brim of care and consideration for the animals in her care. She focuses on ensuring each animal feels loved, which matters to us. Also, plenty of photos received daily showing our lovely moggies looking relaxed and content. Do not hesitate to bring your cats here.

My two cats Boss and Baby seemed to have a lovely time at Longcroft, they came home looking happy and well. The personal emails with the regular updates really reassured me as to how they were doing. This was the first time I’d ever left my cats in a cattery and they are mature cats of 12 and 11 so was anxious how they would settle, but the did really well. It’s a beautiful set up and immaculately clean and would definitely recommend Loria and her cattery to everyone.Till the next time Andi 😺

Loria looked after our cats, Sabrina and Martina as if they were her own. We were anxious about leaving them as we had never left them before but after seeing the facilities and talking to Loira we knew we were leaving them in good hands. We were regularly kept updated with emails and lots of photos, which we really appreciated. Loria, even made sure that they did not miss out on their birthday celebrations while we were way. I would definitely leave Sabrina and Martina with Loria again.

Stan had a wonderful luxury holiday at Longcroft. Loria took such good care of him. The suites are second to none, and the amount of time she spends looking after her guests can be seen when they come home. He looks happy, contended and his coat is sparkling. Would not hesitate in recommending Loria and Longcroft if your furry friends need a pampering retreat while you are off on your holidays!

I left little Michelle at Longcroft East Barnet for two weeks and she loved every second of it. She got to go on her own relaxing holiday while we were away and received constant attention and pampering. We received adorable pictures and updates every other day, which brought us a lot of comfort and reassured us that she was having a great time. We also received two e-postcards addressed from Michelle to us, telling us how her days were going. I opted for VIP spa treatments and when she came back, her long fur was so silky and shiny that it looked like she had been given a blowdry! Lastly, Michelle has asthma and needed to take medication for it, which Loria had no problem with administering. Throughout our interactions, Loria was very professional and kind, and we could see right away that she treats all of her guests with great care. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for affordable and high quality pet accommodation.

I have been very pleased with Longcroft, East Barnet, and would recommend their services to my friends. My furry little girl was very chilled and relaxed when I went to pick her up from her stay with Loria. This assured me that she was well cared for and attended to during on her stay. I was also cheered to receive photos and messages every few days from Loria with updates.

I felt comfortable leaving my cat, Messi, in Loria's care. His room and treatment were luxury, better than he gets at home! I appreciated the photos sent to me, I could see he was chilled and content. This was a short stay and was very successful. I'll be booking again when I've booked a trip away. Many, many thanks Loria

We boarded our two cats here for 10 days, and we were really glad to receive email updates and photos of them playing, cuddling with each other, and climbing on the cat tree. When they arrived home (we used the pick up and delivery service) they were acting totally normal, not stressed or scared. So we are very pleased, and will definitely be sending them for their own holiday with Longcroft the next time we are on our holiday. It’s nice not to have to worry about how they are getting on😀! Thanks, Loria!

We were very impressed with the accommodation, cleanliness and attention to detail. Loria obviously loves cats and it was it was good to receive pictures. We opted for the a la cat menu which sounded just what our cat would go for and apparently she did! She seemed very calm both when we left her and when we picked her up. She only had a 3 night stay as a trial but we hope to book her in again soon.

Longcroft East Barnet looked after our cats Bear and Mimi in October, and from start to finish it was a really first-class experience. Loria clearly loves animals and is always so helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Both our cats are rescues and are very young and energetic, but quite nervous still. This was the first time we had left them for any time - but we needn't have worried, as they were pampered thoroughly and seem to have had a lovely time. We were sent lots of updates and pics and could tell they were having a good time! The rooms themselves are really lovely - clean and bright, and have been put together very thoughtfully, with the guests in mind! I cannot recommend enough!

I was super nervous about my cat staying somewhere new and unknown while I was on Holiday but as soon as I met Loria my mind was at rest. Nooka had a lovely time, I got pictures and updates every day - which made me be able to enjoy my holiday more and she came back home super happy and playful. Couldn't ask for any more, will 100% be her home away from home from now on
