Riley - The cat with the best House in town!
Jesmond Dene House has had a very special resident for the past two years. When local cat Riley (formerly known as Timmy) kept visiting the hotel on a daily basis his owners and the hotel team decided that he seemed to love it so much he could move in.
So well-loved has he become by staff and guests that he has his own house outside the hotel entrance, is regularly checked over by local vets Moorview Vets, and has now joined the world of social media with his own facebook page (facebook/Riley Jdh).
Already having over 100 followers who regularly post images and videos, Riley has featured in a number of wedding celebrations and joined the Christmas festivities receiving his own presents, decorations and Christmas lunch.
Clearly loved by guests who have described him as ‘adorable’ and ‘gorgeous’, and a purrfect member of the reception team he can be found on a daily basis sitting outside the main entrance and welcoming guests into the hotel or on car park duty supervising the safe-keeping of guest cars.
Re-christened Riley by the staff - and which cat wouldn’t enjoy the life of riley in a 4 red star hotel with 3 AA rosette food - the feline friend has very much become one of the Jesmond Dene House family.
Scott Davidson, General Manager says “Everyone loves Riley. He is a gorgeous, well-behaved friendly cat who seems to have taken a shine to our hotel and our guests all seem to love him. We are delighted he has settled so well into our house and felt giving him his own facebook page is only fitting for someone of his pawsonality!”.
