What are cat hotels?
Cat hotels are a more luxurious variation of a normal cattery. The principle is quite simple, you take your cat to the hotel before you depart and pick it up upon your return. While some cats don’t really mind switching locations, others have a harder time supporting changes to their environment. Cat hotels usually host more than one cat so having other animals around can be stressful.
Finding a cat hotel near you
Before selecting a cat hotel, it is always recommended to research the facility and make sure that it is up to the latest standards, especially in big cities like London where the demand for cat hotels is higher. Take into consideration that the hotel has to follow laws and regulations and should have a security policy in place.
It is important that you pay a visit to the premises and take a look at the rooms your cat will be eating and sleeping in. Do you trust the neighbourhood? Find out how many other pets will be staying in the hotel and consider if your cat will feel comfortable with the situation. Cats tend to have a great sense of territory and are closely attached to their homes. An anxious or shy cat an have a hard time in a new place with unknown humans and animals.
If you are not sure about the cat hotels closest to you, you should consider widening your search radius: finding a suitable hotel for your cat is more important than finding one close by!
Prices for cat hotels near me
Prices for cat hotels can vary greatly based on the services they provide which is why it can be hard to say exactly what the average cat hotel charges. With that being said, there are cat hotels offering basic services similar to a cattery that are not more expensive than any other per sitting service as well as luxury hotels that can charge over £100 per day.
A higher price usually comes with better facilities and additional services, such as a vet on site. Keep in mind however that just because a cat hotel promotes these services, does not mean that they are included in the price. You want to avoid coming back from a Holiday and being presented by a greatly augmented bill, so always read the small print.
There is a lso a great difference in price between cat hotels in the big cities and those that are situated in more rural areas. And even between cities there can be big differences. A cat hotel in London is usually more expensive than in any of the other cities in the UK

Alternatives to cat hotels
If the prices of a luxurious cat hotel turn you off, you can always consider a more basic cattery. Also here, there is a huge price difference between catteries in London and elsewhere. For most cats, however, a cat hotel or cattery is not a good option at all, due to their previously mentioned territorial nature. In these cases, you should consider the following alternatives.
Asking friends or family
One of the options available to cat owners who don’t have the possibility or don’t want to bring their cat to a cat hotel is to ask friends and family for support for the period of your absence. This will usually be cheaper than booking a professional cat sitting service and can be beneficial to your cat. Staying home with someone they trust and who might even already know your cat can be a great way to spare your cat the stress of moving around a lot within a short period of time.
Dedicated pet sitting services
In case you can´t or do not want to ask a relative or friend, you can also consider using a dedicated pet sitting service. Through companies like Holidog you can find a cat sitter near you as easily as if you were asking friends or family.
