Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed at The Drayton Manor hotel as part of a Thomas land package, we had one of the themed rooms with Thomas and fiends decor.

The room itself was very large and had all the facilities you would expect with a generous sized bathroom and a nice view if the grounds and it goes without saying that our toddler was more than pleased with the bespoke Thomas bunk beds.

A surprise to us was the entertainment that was laid on free of charge for the children to take part in some outdoor activities this was on top of the nice adventure play areas situated at the rear if the hotel.

Again as part of our package we had a Thomas character breakfast which was attended by the fat controller and the buffet breakfast was a very good standard.

All of the hotel staff from the reception staff to the bar staff and entertainment staff were superb and couldn't help enough.

Stayed: July 2014

Thank you for telling us about your stay at the hotel. I am happy to see you took advantage of our children's entertainment time and that the English weather held for this to be on our lawn. Our management team are happy to see the staff were helpful throughout your stay and that your little one enjoyed the room - they are pretty special. I hope you are able to visit us again soon where our staff will be waiting to welcome you back.

A great night in a lovely hotel. Great for early morning theme park visit. Thomas theme in the hotel was very exciting for young Thomas fans. Reception staff were very nice and took time to chat with child. Bit of a mix up with tickets for Cadbury Land but all worked out well. Room was clean and plenty of space. Breakfast was good. If you have Thomas fans who would enjoy playing at the train track at breakfast remember to pack some toy trains.

I am very happy to see you and your family enjoyed your time here at Drayton Manor Hotel. I am particularly glad to see your little one had some interaction with my reception staff and that they also enjoyed the train tracks in the restaurant. I am sorry there was a mix up with the Cadbury World tickets but at least you got your chocolate fix in the end. Thank you for your review and I hope to welcome you back to the hotel again soon.

We have just returned from 1 night at this hotel with our 2 1/2 year old and 4 month old. We found the hotel to be really clean, the staff very friendly and all of the Thomas touches really helped get everyone in the mood for. Thomas Land. The room was spacious for the 4 of us, even once we put the cot in there and the bathroom was spotless. We didn't eat at the hotel for our evening meal but they had an outdoor BBQ which looked good but had breakfast which was all really nicely cooked. Our son loved it here and had a great time watching the carousel in reception as well as seeing which thomas characters were on each floor. We though the hotel was fantastic value and we would definitely return. My only criticism is the website which is appalling, as is the website for Drayton Manor Park itself. We thought both the hotel and the theme park were excellent though..

Just returned from a fantastic weekend away with my wife, 2 year old and parents. It really was a great experience for all. The rooms were impeccably clean, the service fantastic and the atmosphere in the hotel was great. We ate at the hotel which was lovely (the new big pan menu is well worth doing) and relaxed whilst we took turns with my son playing on the park and joining in with the childrens entertainers.
Location is great for Drayton Manor and for £12 the second day was good value for money.

I can see this being an annual trip!

Thank you for your review,

We're really pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay with us last weekend and delighted that you enjoyed our big pan dining offering. This was our first time out with the big pan this year and I too thought that the atmosphere combined with the entertainment and sunshine was fantastic.

We hope to see you back at the hotel very soon.

We visited the Drayton manor hotel on sat the 12th July 14 with our children and it was great and the kids loved it.
All the staff are very friendly and accommodating and the customer service is 5 star.
The entertainment for the children in the evening in the garden was great and my kids loved it and ex outdoor play area for the kids.
the rooms are nice and big and very clean and even had a fridge.
We had a evening meal in the hotel restaurant and it was perfect the food was spot on and again the service was brilliant and also the breakfast was perfect and ex quality food.
Its right next door to the theme park and the parking is free as well.
we hope to visit again soon and a big thanks to Dan the waiter who looked after us, his customers service skills and service was spot :)

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband and 11 month old baby and we were very happy. Comfortable room with travel cot provided. Room was nice and quiet, given the number of kids staying in the hotel we didn't hear them and we all slept very well. No issues with cleanliness at all. Fridge in room and also a bath which is ideal for travelling with a baby. Breakfast very good and nice buffet selection of cooked items, cereal, toast, pastries and yoghurt etc. Ideal for visiting the theme park but also nice grounds to play in once park closed. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your review.

I'm sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your recent stay with us. I will certainly share your feedback with the team and head chef in particular.

In terms of the device that you've mentioned in your review. This is actually a bed bug monitor that our housekeepers check daily to alert us should we ever encounter a problem involving bed bugs. I apologize if this may have alarmed you during your stay and take on board that this can cause confusion.

Thank you once again for your review.
