Cat owners in Southport will be delighted by the launch of an extraordinary new five star luxury

hotel for cats. The Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, part of the multi award winning and trend setting Longcroft Group, will be run by Harvey Summers from the grounds of his beautiful home, situated in his peaceful and picturesque garden, surrounded by mature trees and with plenty of wildlife to keep the guests entertained.

The hotel is custom-built, offering 5 very spacious, individual hotel style suites, using only state of the art materials. The five star accommodation offers a thermostatically controlled bedroom, complete with a safe garden and play area. Each suite is sumptuously decorated and designed around the feline guest’s well-being and their owner’s peace of mind. Every detail has been meticulously planned with guest welfare, hygiene and luxury in mind. From wrought iron designer cat beds with the softest pillows and gourmet ‘A La Cat™’ menu choices served on bone china, to music, personal grooming sessions and gorgeous views, the guests at this hotel are in for a treat. Feline guests will keep their owners’ mind at rest with regular updates, photographs and texts whilst they are away.

Harvey says ‘I am looking forward to offering customers a truly unique experience of looking after their cats and being able to hand them back stress-free and happy. Spending time with cats is a great bonus for me, too. I enjoy pampering them and making them feel at home and relaxed, so that will be a real pleasure. It will be gratifying to grant cat owners the knowledge that they don’t have to think twice about the care their pet will be receiving – it will be second-to-none, and will allow them to enjoy their trip to the full.”

Longcroft is the world’s first five star cat hotel group.

Asked what he is most looking forward to about running a Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, Harvey says: ‘Offering the best care available to my guests. Seeing them relaxed and thriving whilst their owners are away is very rewarding. The response I have already received has been fantastic and I have bookings as far away as Christmas! I am proud to be part of the amazing Longcroft family.’

Leaving a much loved cat for whatever reason, because of a holiday or having renovation work done at home, can be really distressing. Harvey’s aim is to put an owner’s mind at rest that their pet is being incredibly well looked after whilst they are away.

Join Harvey and special guests, The Mayor, Councillor Kevin Cluskey & Mayoress Mrs Linda Cluskey for prosecco and cupcakes at the Opening Day on Saturday 28th March from 2-4pm.
