Latest Testimonials

  • " Thanks so much for looking after Narla, Poppy, Pickle, Willow and Weezer over the last 13 years. I think they look forward to staying with you (and your heat pads) almost as much as we look forward to our holidays! Thanks especially for keeping an eye on Narla whilst she was Poorly - it really was a weight off of our minds knowing she was being cared for professionally whilst we were away. To anyone considering using Altar Stones for the first time; you won't find better. "

    Jon & Sam, Humberstone, Leicester

  • Hi Martin and Halina,

    We just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after Michael and Fenian so well for us. They certainly seemed to enjoy their stay and we brought home two very happy cats after their week with you! We'll be recommending you to all our cat owner friends, and we look forward to having you look after our two cats again.

    With many thanks,
    Clare and Alex.

  • "Dear Halina and Martin

    Thankyou so much for taking such great care of Florence, George, Connie, Isla and Scarlett. It is such peace of mind to be able to go away and not worry at all about the five of them. I know if they could speak they would say that they had a great holiday themselves at Altar Stones - an all inclusive hotel."

  • " Being away from home many times throughout the year we need to be sure that our cat, Chaos, will be safe and well cared for. He treats his stay at Altar Stones as a home from home whilst we have total peace of mind that he is in the safe and experienced hands of Martin and Halina. "

    - Hazel and Tony Phillips of Markfield -

  • " Alfie and Poppet have been going to Altar Stones for 8 years now, several times a year. 3 years ago I moved from Leicester to Nottingham and still travel back to take the cats here as I know they will be well looked after. It is a lovely peaceful environment and I can go away without worrying if they will be ok. My first time away I called up every other day to see how they were, now I don't feel the need to. It's a big thing to trust someone to look after your beloved pets and I wouldn't dream of taking my cats anywhere but here. "

  • " I just wanted to say thank you for looking after Tiger over the years. He always comes home looking better than when I leave him! Much appreciated. "

    - Nick Folds, Groby -

  • " Altar Stones Lane Cattery is an absolute treasure. Our cats had never been to a Cattery before and are indoor cats. We worried about them. We shouldn't have. Halina is wonderful and looked after them brilliantly going the extra mile to settle them in and make they're holiday special. In fact they weren't too impressed to be taken home! I would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks Halina, you are the cat's whiskers! "

    - Caroline Mcclung -

  • " Love this place as much as my cats do I'm sure, I know they are truly looked after whilst I'm on holiday, lovely setting, great family cat suites, just home from home. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who loves their cats like we do, thanks to Halina and Martin xx "

    - Ali Lake -

  • " I have used Altar Stones for many years and have no hesitation in recommending them. Halina and Martin are the perfect hosts and look after all their guests with loving care and attention. The surroundings are beautiful and kept immaculately clean. The pens are spacious, light and airy. I wouldn't take my cats anywhere else. "

  • " I'm sure our five cats have a better holiday than we do, they certainly are well cared for in every way imaginable. Halina and Martin you do an outstanding job, thank you. "

    - Lorraine Parry -

  • " Having had to find boarding at short notice over the Christmas period, Altar Stones not only had a place but were a delight to communicate with. My cat Ella was only 6 months old so I was a little apprehensive at leaving her, but the place was clean, roomy and warm and she came back happier than ever. I would recommend to anybody who's looking for boarding as they're definitely my first choice going forward. "

    - Owen David Croxon Maddocks -

  • "My cats absolutely love this place. Great service - lovely people."

    - Katy Miller -

  • " We've just picked our cat up from her first stay at Altar Stones, in fact her first stay in a cattery. I have been very impressed from start to finish. The cattery is spacious, light and very clean. I emailed at least 4 times in the 2 weeks we were away checking on Molly and Halina replied very promptly every time, easing my worries and assuring us that Molly was doing fine. On collection Molly seemed very happy, and she looks like she's put on a little bit of weight which she needed!! All in all I would definitely recommend, and will definitely be booking next time we go away."

    - Ruth Thompson -

  • " I love Altar Stones and have used this cat holiday home for years & years. Our cats have always come home happy & healthy. A massive thanks to all the team for looking after our cats when we go away, I don't know what we'd do without you."

  • " I would not use anywhere else for my cat Jasper. He is so well looked after & the owners are so accommodating."

    - Helen Collins -

  • " Our two cats have spent many happy weeks at Altar Stones. I have no hesitation in sending them there. The cats are exceptionally well looked after, and Martin and Halina are great and very accommodating, even when we book in at last minute."
