Cat lovers can rejoice as a new cat hotel is set to be launched in Norbury.

What is a cat hotel you may ask?

Well, the Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Group will run the hotel out of cat-lover Robbie Banks' family home.

Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Norbury, part of the multi award winning and trend setting Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Group will be run by cat lover Robbie Banks. The boutique luxury hotel is custom-built using state-of-the-art materials, offering six individual hotel style suites with views out onto the leafy garden and plenty of wildlife to keep the feline guests entertained.

The accommodation offers each guest their very own private climate-controlled bedroom leading out onto a further private safe garden play area which London house cats just love, the aim is to offer an environment that is as close to the one they are used to at home.

Mr Banks will even send regular updates and photographs of the special felines to the owners.

“We are so excited about opening the first Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel in South London and cannot wait to offer our guests and their owners exceptional service and loving care in our stunning hotel in a slice of leafy calm in Norbury," Mr Banks said.

"It’s incredibly important to allow our feline guests space to climb and exercise as well as relax.

"We offer an authentic home from home experience where our guests enjoy the highest level of care and attention.”

Asked what he is most looking forward to about running a Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, Mr Banks said: "offering the best care available to our guests."

"Seeing them relaxed and thriving whilst their owners are away will be so rewarding.

"We provide strict standards of hygiene and cleanliness, but also a high level of comfort and care in a nurturing home from home environment.

"We officially welcome our first guests in July although the response we have already received has been overwhelming and we already have many bookings as far ahead as Christmas.”
