The Lawlor Cat Hotel in Brentwood, Essex, has 23 suites for its feline guests. The stylish rooms are fitted with bunk beds, kitty sofas, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dining options include smoked salmon, Dublin Bay king prawn, and cream cheese canapes served in the specially designed cat restaurant.
And for those who really want to spoil their mogs, how about ordering up a dish of beluga caviar? But be warned, this salty fish treat costs £160 for 50g!
After dinner, cats can enjoy a relaxing spa treatment. Dematting and grooming cost £45, while a stylish and on-trend lion cut is an extra £85!
The super-posh cattery is the brainchild of Jane Lawlor. Along with manager and kitty concierge, Kim Wooding, the pair dedicate their days to catering for all the cat's needs.
Rooms are cleaned out every morning and checked again around lunchtime. Jane and Kim also spend at least 10 mins with each cat, making sure they don't miss out on any strokes and cuddles while their owners are away.
The Lawlor Hotel started as a getaway for local cats but soon started growing due to the exceptional level of hospitality. Jane even provides exclusive limo services to chauffeur cats to and from the luxury hotel.
Jane, who owns two cats, two dogs, and a horse, set up the hotel after turning her back on a lucrative banking career. She said:
"I worked in banking for a time...But I left that when I was 30 and went on to set up Lawlor Cat Hotel three years ago, which has been a dream come true."
The UK's first bespoke cat hotel
Each suite costs £20-£25 per day, with a minimum three-day stay.
