..always ensure the highest standards of care..

I am an anxious cat mummy and have left my two furbabies here on several occasions now and would never hesitate to recommend it. They always ensure the highest standards of care for the cats, but more importantly that they still get the attention and fuss they need. Their special little routines (like particular food in a treat ball) are always followed to make sure they feel as much at home as possible.


Hasn’t stopped talking..

A really big thank you for looking after my fur baby L***...
I was really worried about leaving her ...she is such a baby..
L*** hasn't stopped talking since we collected her this morning.....I'm sure she's telling us she had a fantastic time..
Will be in touch at weekend to book next years holiday..
I wont worry next time...I know she'll be fine.


..brilliant, kind and professional.

I have used Whichwood a few times for my cats now. I am so comfortable leaving them knowing they will be well taken care of.

Flo has been a little under the weather recently and i thought she was over it, apparently not! Amanda kept me up to date with details on how Flo was and sent photos. Flo was picked up earlier than planned by my emergency contacts and taken straight to the vets.
Amanda is brilliant, kind and professional. Highly recommend!

..would never go anywhere else

My Hannah has stayed at Whichwood many times. The care and attention she gets is fantastic. Always comes back relaxed and like a fluffy ball. Would never go anywhere else. Thanks Amanda

His fur was beautifully soft…

Just a quick message to say thank you for looking after Bobbi last week. His fur was beautifully soft from all the brushing, but he has rolled in the garden since we’ve been home so is a little dusty now.

He was so funny on the way home and ‘squawked ‘ all the way. He never needed to talk when Gracie was here as she was always so ‘out in front!’

We were a bit worried about how he would be at your hotel without her but he seems to have been fine judging by all the purring he did.

Sue (and "Bobbi")

…the best Health Spa ever

Louie has arrived home and I just wanted to email you to say, ‘thank you’ for looking after him.

He’s come home happy and in such great condition; it’s like he’s been at the best Health Spa ever!

Andrea (and "Louie")

…better condition than when we dropped her off

Very pleased with the care Billie received. After a two week stay at Whichwood Cat Hotel, her coat is in a better condition than when we dropped her off!

She’s not keen on combing which shows the level of patience they have with their guests! Thanks again!

Jake (and "Billie")

We are so glad to have found you

Thank you Amanda for looking after Fluff and Izzy on their first visit to Whichwood.

Fluff’s thick, long coat is in beautiful condition which shows me that she has obviously had time spent on it for which we are very grateful. They are both happy to be home and after half an hour of exploring their favourite nooks and crannies around the house Izzy is again doing what she loves best …..it took her almost two days after a stay in another cattery and they were both very traumatised that time.

We are so glad to have found you and will definitely be using your cat hotel in the future and recommending you to friends

Babs ("Fluff" and "Izzy")

…both settled back at home very quickly.

Thank you for taking such good care of Monty and Darcey. They have both settled back at home very quickly.

Monty caught his first bird within forty-eight hours so he had not lost any speed from being confined to his hotel room. They are enjoying sleeping in their favourite places and patrolling the garden.

I will recommend you to my friends and no doubt will be booking again in the future. Thank you again.

Alison ("Monty" and "Darcey")

I cant thank you enough Whichwood!

I cant thank you enough Whichwood! This was our first experience using a cattery so me and my fluffs (Sooty and Sweep) were a bit stressed out at first – the accommodation you provide is top notch, gorgeous location with a lovely view of the garden.

My cats were looked after so well bless you and at the same time you put my mind at ease by answering my anxious (crazy cat lady) messages during their stay! We will definitely be using Whichwood again in the near future! Thanks again xxxx

Natalie ("Sooty" and "Sweep")

Settled down like he’s never been away.

Picked up our D today. He’s settled back down like he has never been away. Thanks for everything a great Cattery.

Bob (and "D")

Thank you again for such a wonderful job!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for looking after M so well and also for the lovely picture of her “dancing” on my birthday! As you could no doubt tell, I was very anxious about leaving her but meeting you and seeing how much you cared about cats and how well you came across as someone I knew would instinctively look after M, was a considerable reassurance to me. The environment was very pleasant and there was everything to keep M occupied and comfortable.

Although she still was unwell in the her carrier on the way home, she was considerably calmer and I can only assume that this was the calm environment in which she had been in.

Thank you again for such a wonderful job!

Tess (and "M")

Treated like a member of the family!

Hi Amanda, Just want to say a big thank you for looking after Loui, Nuzzle and Scratch for the last ten days.

All seem to be very happy and content and again thank you for being so concerned about Scratch and taking her to the vets- it’s nice to know they are treated like a member of the family!!

I will definitely be coming back and will be recommending you to my cat loving friends.

Amanda ("Loui", "Nuzzle" and "Scratch") Lamport

[They’d] prefer to go back to Amanda’s!!

We can highly recommend both Amanda and Whichwood Cat Hotel. We own two young cats, that are fairly timid, and have found them to be relaxed and happy during their stay with Amanda. To further enhance this point, one of our cats usually sits on our doormat looking out when he returns home after a stay at the Cattery, as if to say he would prefer to go back to Amanda’s!! We won't take this personally – we know he loves us really!

The cattery is the cleanest and most modern in this area and beats other local catteries hands down. I am sure that any cat owner would be more than happy to leave their pets with Amanda. The surroundings are peaceful and relaxed and the cats can look out over Amanda’s garden, so there is plenty to keep them entertained, this is in addition of course to the many toys that Amanda supplies for each cat. Marks out of 10 …. 10 without a doubt!

Jo & Andy Wellingborough

Both look so happy and very settled.

Thank you so much again for making our cats feel at home and making us feel so welcome and confident to leave them. I love the piccies they both look so happy and very settled.

Hi Amanda, just wanted to say a big Thank You again for looking after Jasper and Bella. They were both really chilled on the way home and not stressed at all. In fact I think they are missing ‘Auntie Amanda’!

Both have settled back home after their stay and will be back to visit you again in the next couple of months. It is so good to know that I can relax and not have to worry about them when they are at your’s as I know that they are safe, happy and very well looked after.

Thanks again. Amba :-).

Anyone looking for somewhere for their cats should definitely visit Whichwood Cat Hotel.

Amba ("Jaspar" and "Bella") Mawsley

It’s an incredible place for a Cat Hotel

It’s an incredible place for a Cat Hotel, you must see it to believe how good it is

Beyond our expectations

We cannot recommend Amanda and The Whichwood Cat Hotel highly enough, her care and attention to our cat’s well being during quite a long stay was above and beyond our expectations

Impressed with the lay out and the cleanliness

Just a short note of thanks for looking after Mezzie for a few days in the week. As you know, I was reluctant to leave her anywhere other than our home, but I needn’t have worried. Mezzie was obviously fine with you, in fact she was in quite a mood with us for a while when we got her home. I think she had got quite settled with you!

We were very impressed with the lay out and the cleanliness of your lovely cat hotel. You have just the right number of “rooms” – as Mezzie can be a little antisocial towards other cats it was good for her that she didn’t hear and sense dozens of others! Also they are spacious yet cosy and warm – just what cats want. We will have no hesitation in booking her in again and possibly for a longer stay in the future. Thanks again

Sue (and "Mezzie") Little Harrowden

Dropping Enzo off was a pleasure

Having searched long and hard for a suitable cattery for Enzo to stay at, and also having had experiences with some not-so-great catteries in the region, it was a pleasure to find Whichwood Cat Hotel. Booking Enzo in was easy, and I was really happy to be asked about things like latest flea and worm treatments and boosters – it’s great to know that these things are thought of for the greater wellbeing of peoples’ pets.

Dropping Enzo off was also a pleasure, and it again filled me with confidence when I saw how clean and well-kept everything was – all topped off by you being so friendly and welcoming.

I would certainly recommend that anyone looking for a responsible, clean and caring cat hotel book in with you, and I definitely will be doing so whenever the need arises again!

Tabby and Leo had a fantastic stay

Tabby and Leo had a fantastic stay, they have been well looked after and I would highly recommend Whichwood to everyone.

Auntie Amanda… the very best in the business

Like other people on here, we too searched for a place to leave our Ozzy J that came up to our standards. We had left him at another cattery in the past, but upon our return from holiday he was in a very upset and unsettled state, so when we booked this holiday, the place we sent him had to be just right and Whichwood Cat Hotel lived up to our expectations and beyond.

Ozzy J came home after two weeks of having a holiday himself and was very happy and had been extremely well looked after. Auntie Amanda as we now call her, is in our opinion the very best in the business. She is caring, loves cats and has a very special touch which them.

Whichwood is a beautiful place, very quiet and each of the cat’s rooms are very very clean, warm (when needed) and light. If you have any doubts about putting your cat here, don’t hesitate. We won’t hesitate to send Ozzy J here again, I’m sure he can’t wait to see Auntie Amanda again! As worried parents we sent an email to Amanda whilst away on holiday and she sent one back to us on behalf of Ozzy J to reassure us, along with some pictures, a really nice touch. This is a purrrrrrfect place :-)

Charlotte (and "Ozzy") Mawsley

Made sure we were happy

Amanda was so lovely when we went to enquire about our cats’ stay. She made sure we were happy with how well they would be looked after and was flexible with us having to drop off the cats earlier due to a change in our departure time. Thanks again.
