The Sands Resort Hotel was recently voted one of the best family friendly hotels in the UK. Having explored some of its child and parent-friendly features, at Parent Friendly Stays we’d be inclined to agree!
The hotel has a variety of room configurations to suit families including suites; the largest of these (the apartment suites) can sleep up to two adults and five children, with three bedrooms and a lounge. Family suites provide kids with their own space and have a TV, DVD, chill box and kettle. There’s also the option of a baby listening service, and on request the hotel can also supply bottle warmers and sterilizers. To give you an idea of prices, a family suite for two adults and two children with sea views during August on a ‘dinner, bed and breakfast’ package costs around £93.50 per adult per night, with discounted rates for children; so a week at peak season for a family of four with 2 children under 3 start from £1600. Given your meals are included and the number of child and parent friendly facilities on site, we don’t think that’s a bad deal at all. Short breaks are also available, often at special rates out of season; for example, at the time of writing, you could have a two night stay for a family of four between March and May including dinner and breakfast for £279.
