Family-friendly hotels

The summer holidays are always a time of great joy, but there’s also a phenomenal juggling act to be done in order to make sure that parents and children alike get a chance to relax and enjoy themselves.  Instead of everyone spending time doing something that no one really wants to do as a measly compromise, the right hotel is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy time out.  

No choosing between entertainment for the kids and luxury for adults, the Good Hotel Guide carefully selects hotels for their variety of opportunities, whether it’s those with plenty of pools and activities available, beautiful grounds to roam in or a steady supply of books to luxuriate in, there’s something for everyone.

Recognising that not every child or parent wants to spend their holiday ferrying children to and from summer camps, the hotels that garner the most treasured memories for families are those that straddle quality time and the chance to take a little worry and responsibility away.  The likes of Fowey Hall and Moonfleet Manor in Dorset and Cornwall are both expert at such things, with spa and creche facilities alike.

Of course a trip to the beach is the stuff that even fairytales are made of, so it will come as no surprise that the UK’s coastal hotels, whether they be in Norfolk or Devon, are supremely popular for stylish holidays with the family.  Strolls into postcard perfect towns and menus that cater for all ages in suitable environments are joyful for everyone involved, and this is a selection of family friendly hotels that have delighted guests time and again.
