Meet The Family

Gill cannot imagine her life without cats – she got her first as an eight year old, and two days after her wedding, she took her husband to Cats Protection League to choose two family cats! She has never been without a cat since, and currently has two cats, Jasper and Cinders.

Best thing about running a Hotel?

“Cats are, and have always been, my number one passion. I first heard about Longcroft when looking for good quality accommodation for Jasper and Cinders – and as soon as I saw the Welwyn hotel I knew that I wanted to offer the same facilities in St Albans. As this is a small, boutique hotel I can offer a real personal service and get to know my guests as if they were my own. I have no other job, and so can devote all of my time to my guests’ care to ensure that they have a pleasant and enjoyable stay.”

  • 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!

  • We knew we had found the purrfect place

    We found Gill's cat hotel by luck when we were looking for a nice place to stay for our little cat Bella. As soon as we met Gill we knew we had found the purrfect place. Immaculately clean and warm, the Longcroft Cat Hotel is top class. Gill went out of her way to ensure that Bella was exceptionally well cared for. We received daily texts and photos which was a lovely touch and very reassuring. When Bella came home, she was very contented and settled. Clearly, she had had a very happy holiday!! Highly recommended.


  • We've already booked again for our Summer break

    Maya has just returned from a 10 day stay being pampered by the wonderful Gill at Longcroft St Albans. I don't mean to be disparaging about the hard working people at 'normal' catteries but Maya returned from one of the better ones in the Summer clearly traumatised. She is a timid pedigree and mainly an indoor cat. She was so much happier at Longcroft and this time we could also relax while we were away, enjoying the regular pics and emails from Gill. Maya could enjoy her regular food, toys and bowl and was perfectly groomed too. We've already booked again for our Summer break. Thanks again Gill.

My baby ( cat) kiki had a the best time. She usually has a hard time in catteries but Gill understood her and they got on perfectly. So sweet she even got her own Christmas present box with loads of treats we can’t wait to unwrapped once we are home. Will let her have my baby many times over. Sad she is already fully booked for next Christmas. Clearly I’m not the only one happy with her services.

We have left Miya under Gill’s care for 2 weeks whilst we traveled abroad. Miya is very timid and gets stressed easily, which leads to some health problems. As we didn’t have good experience with previous catteries, I was extremely anxious. It turned out that I was worried for no reason, as Gill was absolutely FANTASTIC! She send us a regular updates on Miya’s health and behaviour putting me at ease. When we came to pick Miya up, she was clean, calm, taken care off and in great condition! She also received a bye bye gift in a bag with her own picture, which was a really nice touch!The place is spotlessly clean, with bed and heating. Gill not only puts her heart in her job, but is also a lovely person.Thank you Gill! We will definitely bring Miya in next time!

I can highly recommend Longcroft Cat Hotels; they really do love and care for the cats in their care. Its such a lovely set up, spotlessly clean, and makes the cats feel as at home as they can be. The pictures we received were a great comfort and he returned home a happy cat - wish we had found Longcroft sooner!!

Gill is excellently (Loncroft St Albans ) You can Leave your cat at Loncroft with 5 million stars!!!We were nervous about leaving our two cats Bow and Biscuit. We were away for over two weeks Gill kept us updated via email with photos of what the kitty's were up to which was calming. I was surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, and the size of the rooms (they call them suites and I understand why)and the caring attitude of Gill. I have never written a web review before which hopefully tells you all you need to know! Both kitties have settled back home really well and love there goody bag. I will be using Loncrift again. Thank you Gill X
