Just returned from a three night stay at Monnfleet with my husband and 7 month baby. As new parents we really loved the idea of a good hotel that is also geared towards people with children. We chose Moonfleet as it is on the coast and the location is superb - out the front of the hotel, through the garden and you are on the path that runs along the coast, lovely for an evening walk before bedtime for the small one.
From a child friendly point of view, the hotel is great. The staff couldn't be more helpful, and services like sterilising bottles and the listening service during dinner were wonderful. My husband and I hadn't managed to go out for dinner since the arrival of the baby so having a grown up dinner in a lovely restaurant without watching a baby monitor felt like a real treat! The crèche staff were also brilliant and I felt very comfortable leaving my baby with them for the 2hr complimentary crèche time we were allocated per day, despite not having left her with anyone not family before.
From an adult point of view, the hotel is good rather than great. I understand they are in the middle of a refurb programme and I hope that includes the beds as I have to say I don't think I have slept (or attempted to!) on a more uncomfortable bed. Our room was also above the kitchen and although there were no noise problems which I was worried about on seeing the location, the rooms were very warm and when we had the windows open the smell from the kitchens wasn't great. Didn't bother me too much but did bother my husband.
The restaurant was very nice, and the staff were good. Drinks were served in the drawing rooms before dinner and sometimes it took a while to get served and we had to go and find someone but we just tried to slow down and get on holiday time!
If you have children I would definitely recommend this hotel, but either ensure you have rooms in the main house or check they have replaced the beds before going!
