Drayton Manor Theme Park’s new hotel has now been confirmed as a 4-star hotel by Visit England, the UK’s national tourist board.

The Drayton Manor Hotel successfully achieved the rating after a thorough inspection by an independent professional assessor.

Martin Wright, General Manager of the hotel, said: “This is terrific news. Having this star rating means that guests will know the quality and services they can expect when they book a stay with us.

“Visit England’s star ratings are determined by the type of services and facilities a hotel provides, as well as things like cleanliness, hospitality, standard of bedrooms and bathrooms, and the quality of the food.”

The Drayton Manor Hotel has 150 rooms, all of which have Wi-Fi access, air-conditioning, an en-suite bathroom and LCD TVs as standard. Each room has a stylish, contemporary interior, complete with a unique framed photograph of one of the theme park’s rides. Guests can choose from a range of rooms, including standard, family, interconnecting, executive and deluxe rooms, as well as three presidential rooms

But the hotel’s unique appeal is its 11 Thomas & Friends™ themed family rooms. Each room has a hand-painted scene on the wall and ceiling, depicting a different character from the Thomas & Friends series. There are also themed bunk beds and train track patterned carpets in the corridors leading to each room.

In addition, the hotel features two restaurants, Parklands Brasserie and Parklands Restaurant, and two bars, Parklands Bar and the Carousel Bar.

The Drayton Manor Hotel, which opened in August, was inspected by independent professional assessors on Monday 21st November.
