A luxury, boutique cat hotel, offering five-star accommodation to feline guests is coming to Orpington later this month.

Longcroft Orpington, the latest addition to the Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel group, will be located in the garden of owner Daisy Carrarini.

Each of the six custom-built suites includes an individual, climate-controlled bedroom, leading onto a private, safe, garden play area, complete with multi-storey viewing platforms for feline guests to play or relax.

Having used a Longcroft hotel for her own cat, Terry, a bi-colour British short-haired male, Daisy was keen create one of her own: “I was delighted to see how happy and well looked after Terry was when we returned from our annual holiday and when we moved house.

"After moving to our new home in Orpington, with a spacious garden, I looked into opening my own boutique hotel with Longcroft.

"I felt I too could offer the very best of care for people’s beloved feline companions, giving their owners the same peace of mind as I received from the first-class experience that Longcroft offers.”

Longcroft is the UK’s only luxury hotel group for cats, founded in 2010 by Abi Purser.

She opened the very first hotel in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, in 2010, in response to the what she saw as the poor standard of cat accommodation and care offered across the UK.

Abi still runs the boutique cat hotel today and there are now 20 Longcroft Cat Hotels in the UK, which all follow the Longcroft five-star model.
