​Owned and managed by the Watts family, our hotel is located just south of Rothwell between Leeds and Wakefield, just 2 minutes from junction 30 on the M62. 

Royds Cat Hotel is next to our house. We offer a safe and secure environment where guests enjoy round the clock care, cuddles and attention. As a small, family run hotel, we can treat each guest as an individual, to ensure they enjoy a comfortable, entertaining, and stress free stay with us.

Spacious Indoor Rooms

Royds Cat Hotel has been built to our own bespoke design, incorporating the latest welfare standards. All of our rooms are more than 50% bigger than standard boarding cattery pens.

What People Say

"Our cat was here for a week and he loved it, considering it was his first time and him being so young, from the minute we dropped him off he was settled and with regular updates we were happy to extend our holiday and his, the staff are lovely and take great care of their residents, we will definitely book him in again and recommend it to anyone."



"Our 3 cats were obviously well looked after here, well fed and groomed daily. Would recommend this Cat Hotel to all."




We needed a cattery at short notice (due to some home renovations) and did not expect to be able to find one after our regular one had recently closed down. We called Royds on the off-chance and the owner, Liz, informed us we were in luck. She encouraged us to visit the premises in advance (always reassuring) but we did not have the opportunity to do so. On arrival Liz showed us around the facilities and all rooms (in varying sizes) were modern, bright, warm and had been well designed to keep our two little bundles of joy happy. We left reassured knowing they were going to be in safe hands. A few days in we had some news that our renovations were going to take longer than originally thought so I contacted Liz who was more than happy to take them for the additional time required. Really pleased we found Royds and, looking back, even if our regular place was still open we would have been unlikely to go back.
