Record-Breaking Bookings For Drayton Manor Hotel As Staycations Prove Popular In 2018

This February, Drayton Manor Park’s on-site hotel achieved a record-breaking number of room bookings since opening in 2011 as revenue soared to an impressive 32% ahead of budget, indicating that staycations are the ideal choice for families this year.

February half term was a key contributor to the hotel’s success, with Drayton Manor Park itself opening for two weeks instead of one for the first time. This decision enabled the park to take itself from a local offering to a national offering within a booming staycation market.

It comes as no surprise that people are choosing the four-star hotel, set in the grounds of the park, due to its brilliant facilities including family rooms, executive rooms, presidential rooms and a selection of Thomas & Friends™ themed rooms, as well as offering two bars, two sublime restaurants and a relaxing lounge. Drayton Manor Hotel, located in the heart of the Midlands, is also equipped with three large conference rooms for functions and exhibitions plus an idyllic wedding facility for up to 400 guests.

Billy Harris, Revenue Manager at Drayton Manor Park, comments: “With the number of British families choosing to spend their holidays in the UK to save money and discover more of what Britain has to offer, we’re pleased to have started the year off so well with such a high market share. It’s great to see that families are choosing to visit our award-winning theme park and hotel for their staycation destination.”

Drayton Manor Park is home to Europe’s only Thomas Land™ with over 25 Thomas & Friends™ themed character rides and attractions for both children and adults, as well as an immersive 4D cinema, 15-acre Zoo and adrenaline-pumping rides for the whole family to enjoy.

With the hotel proving to be a popular choice, make sure you don’t miss your chance to stay this year and book your family visit
