It was a very frustrating experience! We were not as bothered by the smell as others. It's a closed space with 15 cats, you're bound to have some smell, but it is more than manageable.

The issue is that, coming to this place with a 5£/h cost, you have to want cat interactions, and with the (understandable) house rules, were you cannot pick the cats up, and you can't bother them when they are...more

The bad: Okay, there's no doorbell &...more

My friend and I had booked an hour at the Cat Village for £5 each with the intention of having a long catch up whilst indulging in some therapeutic cat-stroking. We turned up 10 minutes late after struggling to find the place but the owner was fine in letting us in. There's a small gate by the door which stops any of the cats from easily running outside. In this area you can take your shoes...more
