Expensive bank holiday stay. When we arrived, had to make our way through a drunken wedding party and approx 20 smokers at the main hotel entrance with 6YR AND 9YR OLD IN TOW. Why they allow smoking in a children's hotel/park is beyond me. Reception said smoking was allowed in certain areas but did nothing about the wedding party. Who... More

This was our second time staying at Drayton Manor.As you can see from previous reviews this hotel is hit and miss, but you really don't expect it to be so at these prices! The first time we came we could not really fault the hotel, apart from being maybe too corporate( this being in June 2013). Fast forward 12 months,... More

We decided that we would spend two nights to allow us more time to enjoy the theme park without rushing to fit it all in. We spent one night in the travelodge and another in the Drayton Manor hotel. We stayed in the Thomas themed room with our 2 year old son which in cluded the Character Breakfast. That itself... More

Just returned from a fantastic bank holiday break at the Drayton Manor hotel. The Thomas themed room was superb, spacious and very comfortable and our kids loved it. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful and the standard of the evening meal was very good although a little expensive. Breakfast with the Fat Controller was quite amusing and a nice... More

Last year we splashed out on the Thomas themed room but at the time we felt it was very overpriced and this time just went for a standard family room . The Thomas themed room was great but for the price we paid... More

We booked a night at the Drayton Manor Hotel as part of a "Stay and Play" rate that includes a day in the adjoining theme park (see my separate review on the theme park). The hotel is very clean and all of the staff I interacted with were very helpful and polite. I arrived about 5:00pm and the booking in... More

The hotel reception looks lovely but once in your room it's like a travel lodge. The only thing 4* about this hotel is the price!! We stayed on the stay and play rate so we visited the theme park on the first day. Then when we returned to the hotel we were checked in by a very rude man who... More
