We stayed two nights as part of a Peppa Pig package. I found the hotel to be very family friendly and though the child check-in, Peppa room key and activity pack were lovely touches. A baby listening service would have been good to allow us to go to dinner once the little one was asleep. As it was we had dinner in the sports bar which wasn't great - the TV was on in both sections of this bar and the food was overpriced, even by London standards (£15.00 for fish and a grand total of six chips and £7.00 for three scoops of ice-cream). The kids meals were better value. Overall the non-breakfast food was average but nothing to write home about.
The Paultons website is misleading as we weren't given a free kids drink with the Peppa Pig menu and we were charged for the childs meal (it says on the website that kids eat free if under 3 when dining with an adult).
I'd recommend the Italian in Botley village. Again not cheap but we were welcomed and they did half portions of pasta dishes for kids.
The breakfast was excellent. Lots of choice and because families were sitting in a separate section it wa more relaxing for those of us trying to control the usual toddler tantrams.
The rooms were fine - standard big chain and we found that we could fit the cot round the corner by the wardrobes to make it less likely that we would disturb our child once asleep.
Overall we had a lovely stay and the addition of a baby listening service would make it completely family friendly.
