So first thing – theming on this room is excellent. It’s entirely cat obsessed, as one would expect from the title. There are a myriad of little touches that add to an experience of complete cat overwhelm. It’s very family friendly, with just one “jump scare” (more of a surprise, not horror).

This room does have a nice variety of on theme puzzles that blended with the theme, but was still relatively reliant on coded padlocks in a way that didn’t quite let everything flow. Some people may have accessibility issues with some of their puzzles.

One point to note is that Chesterfield Escape Rooms have a philosophy of including quite a lot of redundant information that plausibly could provide a solution to the clues. Ostensibly this is done to create authenticity. For larger groups, this is unlikely to be a major issue, since by dividing and conquering these can be relatively quickly eliminated. For smaller groups, it can be frustrating!

Overall a good room that should appeal to almost any group of players (although more than 4 would likely be too crowded).

This room was quite different and very theme-driven. There were some cool touches, quite a lot of puzzles to get through, and a weird amount of rhyming.

great hostingfamily friendlyquite difficult
It may look like it's going to be a hilarity filled ride into the mind of someone obsessed with cats but what lurks is a bit of a fiendish puzzles.  I think the flow breaks in a couple of places as at times we were standing around trying to figure out the next move and we failed right on the last puzzle in a similar way to a room from a couple of years ago where I think it was a potentially ambiguous answer to the final puzzle and that cost us the last few seconds.

What a fun room! The puzzles were surprisingly challenging and there are quite a lot of them but it was something that felt a bit different to the usual. We're cat people so naturally loved the theme and we tore through this room as a two (and it would be a bit cramped with a bigger team).

It is a kooky, cartoony space, not huge but fine for the three of us, full of charming cat-related decor. It might be deliberately kitsch
