Family Hotel Holidays

This section covers family-friendly hotels, both in the UK and abroad. At these hotels, your children will be positively welcomed and you will not need to spend your whole time tellling them to be quiet or worrying that they are not behaving in the restaurant. These hotels are places where families can have fun together as well as having the freedom to do their own thing.


There are usually onsite activities for all the family to enjoy such as swimming pools, mini-golf, pitch and putt, watersports, biking, golf and tennis. Children will love faciliites such as play areas, kids clubs and onsite children's activity programmes. And the adults are not forgotten. If you need a bit of me-time, there may be babysitting or creche service so that you can enjoy a romantic meal, a spa treatment or even a round of golf.

Family suites or inter-connecting rooms are often available and also early dining options for children.
