Choose the Right Family Hotel when Travelling with the Whole Family

Sometimes travelling with a young family can be tricky. Often it can be difficult to find a hotel that’s child friendly and doesn’t leave you feeling out of place by bringing the little ones along with you. Country escapes can seem like adult only destinations, but more and more family hotels are starting to crop up in quiet, secluded locations as hotel owners come round to the idea that many families want their children to experience all there is to see in the world, including being able to stay at chic or boutique hotels without feeling unwelcome.

In order to book the right hotel, it’s important to conduct some research before you set out. Just because a hotel looks beautiful and promises everything under the sun doesn’t mean it necessarily delivers. Only you know exactly what your family will need during your stay, so don’t rely simply on hotel advertisements to make your choice.

One such hotel that can accommodate the demands of your family is Worplesdon Place, the latest edition to the Bespoke Hotels family just outside the town of Guildford, Surrey.

Worplesdon Place features 21 bedrooms, as well as a bar and grill, and is ideally situated for those accompanied by young ones, being close to a range of family attractions such as Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures, not to mention shopping in Guildford and some wonderful countryside to explore.

Speak with the hotel

If you’re looking to get away from the family hotels that exist solely to cater to children, yet still want your destination to be family friendly, then Worplesdon Place is ideal for you due to the excellent balance it strikes. You can check out their recently relaunched website online, or call the hotel to find out, as things change from one day to the next, so the most up to date information is often only available over the phone.

For example, this month Worplesdon Place is pleased to offer a great “Surrey Summer Getaway”. This deal consists of 2 nights bed & breakfast in a double or twin room, as well as dinner on one night in a standard double room, for only £84.50 per night (subject to a minimum 2 night stay).

Remember that boutique hotels provide a unique experience for families, so don’t expect everything to be super child friendly. After all, there’s a difference between kid friendly and family friendly. But of course you want to make sure that your family will be comfortable.

Questions will abound, like does the hotel provide complimentary baby beds or cots? Are there local attractions for your family to enjoy? Does the hotel provide a swimming area? Is there a restaurant on the premises or a short walk from the hotel?

Once you have all of your answers, you’ll see that Worplesdon Place is a great destination for you. Don’t believe us? Speak to them and find out for yourself! We’re sure they’ll be able to satisfy you and your family’s needs.

Additionally, Worplesdon Place brings you their “Family Theme Park Break” this summer. This package is for 2 adults and up to 2 children for 2 nights Bed & Breakfast in a family room, with dinner on one night plus 20% discount off tickets to nearby Thorpe Park and Chessington Theme Park. This is priced at just £89.00 per night during August for a minimum 2 night stay, and £99.00 per night during September.

What more could you ask for?

Family hotels strive to cater to families as a whole and not fall down on the side of either adults or children. It’s all about striking a balance that the whole family can enjoy. So, if a balance is what you’re after this summer, why not book a visit to Worplesdon Place now by clicking here!

Reunite with Family in London Hotels with Bespoke Hotels

Is it time for your family to reunite and spend some time together? With the bustling, frenetic nature of modern life, family gathering can often be tricky things to organise, especially when the family is spread all over the place. One way to reunite is to plan a family reunion in a central location that offers convenience and plenty to see and do. London is the ideal city in which to plan a family reunion, as its central location is easy to access and provides plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy. Bespoke has some great London hotels within our group that cater for families and help guests get the most out of their trip. And with the summer season in full flow, and events such as Wimbledon and the Ashes coinciding with schools’ summer holidays, it couldn’t be a better time for a trip to the capital.

Look for Family Hotels that Cater for Children

There are always lots of children around when families reunite. Cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren that may not get the opportunity to meet regularly will all be excited and ready to enjoy themselves. In this regard, it’s important to research the local area and find a place that offers appropriate services for children. Thankfully all of our Bespoke London hotels offer some great local knowledge which will help to meet the needs of the younger guests at the hotel.

Amenities that make travelling with children easier, such as board games, cards, DVDs, books, and music, are available to borrow from most Bespoke hotels. Some hotels will offer these amenities right there in your room, while others will have a system set up whereby you can call down and have the items delivered to your door. Depending on the Bespoke hotel you choose, you may even be able to rent video game systems, which are helpful if you have a rainy day or simply wish to lounge around.

Hotel Features that Make Travelling Easier for Mum and Dad

With all this talk of keeping the kids happy, it’s important not to forget that the London hotels you research should also understand the importance of making travelling easy for mum and dad. Offering features like connecting rooms so families can easily communicate with each other and travel back and forth, baby bed and cots, are all vital when staying together. While a hotel may not provide every amenity you want, most family friendly London hotels go above and beyond trying to keep guests happy, and will be more than happy to satisfy you as best they can. Consider booking a few rooms at a family friendly property in one of our London Bespoke Hotels the next time you want to reunite with distant relatives.
