Although not the cheapest cattery(you only get what you pay for)we feel quite happy to leave our lovely cat here when we go on holiday.It is spotlessly clean and he is well looked after-groomed and fed.He is always happy to go and never seems upset in any way.Beverly also puts a picture of him on Twitter so no matter where I am I can see how he is doing.I would not hesitate to recommend Raintongate to my friends (read more)

Our four pampered cats have holidayed at Rainton gate several times over the last two years.I have no qualms about recommending it to anyone. There is an air of calm contentment among the cats. There is no unpleasant "cat" smell and certainly no cries for attention or of unhappiness from the feline residents.
I can only speak from my experience- I would not leave my cats anywhere that I was uncomfortable about. The owners really do seem to care. (read more)

We left our beloved old friend at the cat hotel on our way to as family holiday. That evening we recieved an aggressive phonecall questioning whether we cared for our cat and accusing us of mistreating him. We were most upset as he had entered the Kennels old but happy. He had obviously become stressed and poorly at the kennels and they had no idea how to care for him.
To recieve a phonecall that your family pet is sick is upsetting enough, when you are a distance away, but to be blamed and... (read more)

Its the first time we have used this cattery and we went to inspect it before booking it. We were impressed and didn't hesitate to book our cats in. Charlie and Woo stayed here from 13th to 28th May 2010, they had a lovely view overlooking the garden and were able to relax as there were no barking dogs to bother them. When we went to collect them they looked totally relaxed and I was even surprised to see Woo lying on the waist high shelf looking out, she is a nervous cat and usually hides... (read more)

Rainton Gate Cattery is highly recommended.
We use this cattery 3/4 times a year and our cat is very very pampered and he doesn't mind going as they are treated very well and the owners try to give them their special requests as much as possible. (read more)

We have used this cattery for a number of years and although it is pricey compared with others in the area, my wife and I both disagreed with the review of 7th April. We haven't noticed any deterioration in the standard of care since the new owners took over, and they have continued a very high standard. I think prices seem to have gone up a lot recently but they do have to charge VAT - surely a sign of a business doing well - other people are obviously continuing to come back. We have... (read more)

We have been taking our cat to Rainton Gate Cattery in Durham approx. 3 to 5 times a year for the last 4 years. Initially the price when we started using it was about £8 a day which seemed reasonable for the excellent care and facilities provided by the previous owner, and often our cat would come home looking better than before she went in! Which was always nice to see.
However, with the change in owners approx. 2 years ago, the standard of care has in our opinion definitely gone down -... (read more)
