We loved moonfleet but made sure we booked a refurbished room. The pool was a bit tatty but was warm and quiet. There wasn't a spa per se but they do treatments.
What we really liked was the big indoor hall full of soft play equipment, pool tables, ride ons, trampolines etc. we spent the time before the children's tea watching the kids play there with a glass of wine that had been brought to us - bliss!
The crèche there was fab too, the ladies who ran it were amazing with our DCs and organised loads of activities.
The food there was lovely, sometimes service was a bit slow but dinner in the evening was so relaxing and the baby monitors worked well for us.
We had a great break as the DCs did two sessions in the crèche each day without argument so we chilled in the lounge reading the papers!
We preferred it to new park manor. Although new park was glossier and the spa was lovely, the crèche wasn't as welcoming and the food wasn't great.
Have you looked at luxury family hotels - we've stayed in two and both had wireless baby monitors. Everyone had one on their table at dinner time which was quite amusing! Try the elms, moon fleet manor or new park manor
Anyone recommend a luxury hotel in the south which offers a wireless device for baby monitoring ie you can roam around the hotel with the baby monitor device rather than trusting someone from reception to listen ? I know there are many hotels which offer the listening service but we would prefer to listen ourselves. Thanks
