To help us test out our brand new portfolio of family friendly hotels, we wanted to recruit a group of young experts to pay a visit, and give us their upmost honest opinion – the way only kids can do!
Every parent knows that when their child is happy, it makes for a much more enjoyable and relaxing break. And that’s exactly what we want – a happy family enjoying our family friendly hotels.
The chosen Inspectors took their family along for a two night break in exchange for their very own review of the hotel.
Here is Elizabeth Gardner’s write up of her stay at the BEST WESTERN Stoke-on-Trent Moat House – in her own special words…
‘Wow what a great hotel we stayed at the in the Best Western plus Stoke on Trent moat house hotel.
On the 10th and 11th April , both the ladies Tracy and Jane on the reception desk were lovely. on both days I was given a activity pack and they told us what room we had. it was the Mitchell suite room 339 we had 2 card keys to get in the doors it was so big. I was on the 3rd floor the lifts was big as well – it had the menu printed all over them for dinner, the first thing I tried was to see how good the beds where so I had a quick bounce that was fun. The bathroom was massive, it even had rubber ducks in it and all the towels had been turned into animals one was a dog a elephant and two swans, we had two TVs in our room and bunk beds there was lots of pillows and even more in the cupboard I love pillows so I had three.
The first thing we did after unpacking was we went swimming I love swimming we went down and you tell the man your number then they give u a towel to use the pool it was not to big and not that many people in there we stayed in for about 30 minutes . my mom went in the Jacuzzi she said it was wonderful then we gave our towels back and went and got dressed for dinner .
I had melon in the shape of a boat and then chicken nuggets jacket potato and beans with a chocolate fudge cake for pudding it was yummy. Mark was very helpful and nice they all was he give me a pen to do the crossword while we waited for our food.
We hired a DVD to watch before we went to bed from reception they had quite a few to chose from we hired happy feet 2 it was free to hire them u have to leave a deposit but you get it back when you have finished.
The next day we got up and had breakfast you could have anything you wanted the was hot food my mom had bacon eggs tomatoes and the staff brought her out some gluten free bread she was very pleased with that I had marmalade on toast and some cereal and a banana with some apple juice mom had a coffee and a peppermint tea.
We had a look around the buildings they where beautiful I took lots of photos the older building is where Josiah Wedgwood lived at Etruria hall the lower floors is were the swimming pool is and is now where they have meeting rooms . They had painting of the Wedgwood family and Wedgwood pieces on the walls .When we walked around it had two lots of stairs in it my mom said it would have been one was for the servants and the better one was for the family, the grounds was beautiful there was even two bird tables for the bird and a little pond I saw bird drinking out of it.
We went into the town to go shopping it was only ten minutes away there are lots of things to do around the hotel water world is just across from the hotel and a cinema, bowling lots of places to eat.
Everyone was very helpful and nice.
I have asked my mom and dad next time we got to Alton towers can we stop at the hotel it is only 30 mins drive away it was really nice I liked every bit my favourite bit was the swimming pool but I also like the big room the food was lovely and the staff was always very helpful .
Thank you for letting me be a junior hotel inspector it was so much fun!
