Press release – Best family hotels UK


Cornwall continues to be a family favourite with two hotels named among the UK’s best

LONDON, UK. – 6 March, 2013 – TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site*, today announces the winners of its 2013 Travellers’ Choice® Awards for Hotels for Families, honouring the best family-friendly hotels in the UK and around the globe. Second best family hotel in the UK 2013

Unlike any other hotel honours, TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travellers around the world. “With the schools set to break up for Easter in a matter of weeks, these awards recognise the hotels that family travellers love the most.  To have two hotels in the UK’s top 10 is fantastic news for Cornwall,” commented Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor spokesperson.

Cornwall a firm family favourite

This year Cornwall has a double triumph. The county boasts two hotels in the UK’s top 10. Newquay’s Sands Resort Hotel & Spa takes second place while the Bedruthan Hotel & Spa in Mawgan Porth comes ninth.

With both children and parents in mind, the Sands Resort Hotel & Spa is the ideal family getaway. For kids there is a whole host of free activities including a climbing wall, zip wire and bouncy castle as well as an OFSTED approved kids club and entertainment programme. And the Ocean Breeze spa is the perfect place for parents to chill while the children are off enjoying themselves.  TripAdvisor travellers praise the hotel on its “evening kids club” and the “excellent children’s food selection”.

Britta Hoffmann, Marketing Manager of the Sands Resort Hotel & Spa said, “We are so honoured to be recognised by families on TripAdvisor as a 2013 Travellers’ Choice Awards for Hotels for Families winner. We strive to provide families that visit us with the best experience possible and would like to thank them for helping us win this award.”

Award winners were determined based on the hotels most highly rated by those who travelled with family.
