Lily’s Luxury Retreat, 5* hotel for cats

Muddy says: Lily’s Luxury Retreat is a family-run, five-star boutique ‘hotel’ for cats just 30 minutes from Heathrow airport. Book ’em in and head off on your hols!

The Spate family are long time cat lovers and owners of this boutique hotel for cats – yep you read that right!

Lily’s Luxury Retreat offers long and short stays for feline family members, just 30 minutes from Heathrow airport, in Chalfont St Giles and has some serious creds. The business is licensed by Chiltern District Council and has a five star rating under new cattery regulations.

The retreat sits on private woodland, fields and formal gardens and has 10 spacious, bespoke pens that are thermostat controlled, have interactive toys, climbing apparatus and soothing music – I’m telling you, these are some pampered pussycats.

Grooming and play sessions are also part of the experience along with the option of premium kitty food that can be tailored to prescription diets.

    Lily’s luxury retreat has added a new dimension to my life in retirement and is also a daily reminder of our sweetest Siamese cat, Diamond Lil, who was with us for eighteen years. Although admitting to a special love of Siamese it is a great pleasure to be involved in the welcoming of other breeds to Lily’s and in the catering for their various personalities and needs – such fun!

    Lily’s is indeed a five star treat! My cats love it there and it’s by far the best cattery I’ve ever used. Cats are thoroughly pampered with as much grooming and play as they want and there is plenty to amuse them in their pens. I must declare a slight interest in that my sister owns Lily’s, but this just means that I really get to see how the cattery is run and how its feline guests are treated. Book your cats in for a holiday and you won’t be disappointed!

    We have had our two gorgeous cats stay several times at Lily’s Luxury Retreat. They are very well looked after and fussed over. They both feel at ease and act like they own the place from the moment they are dropped off. We feel very secure when we are away knowing they are safe and happy.

    Our two siamese had an extended stay at Lily’s retreat whilst we were doing some work to our house. Unfortunately our work went on longer than expected, however Louise was really accommodating extending our cats stay several times!
    Louise provided updates and pictures throughout their stay which allowed us to see they were ok and had settled in, also we could see how happy they were there.

    This is an absolutely lovely cattery, the accommodation is warm and spacious with lovely views and lots of attention given to the cats.
    I highly recommend Lily’s retreat if you need a cattery, it is almost like a little holiday for your cats as they are so spoiled there.
