Don't take our word for how good a deal our StayPlayExplore short breaks are...

October 2021 - StayPlayExplore review in response to help with booking

"I now have very happy children!"

You are an absolute miracle worker! Thank you so so much! I now have very happy children! Probably happier than they would have been otherwise as I’d told them it was fully booked and now I’m going to look like a super hero 😂
It’s all booked and paid! Just now to book the activities!
 Thanks again! I think this will be our 5th stay play explore break! We love it! X.

Aug 2021 - StayPlayExplore family stay at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel

"We had the best time"

My family and I went away on our first Stay, Play, Explore holiday last week and we had the best time. I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you as the concept is brilliant - all of our activities were amazing, the hotel was lovely and the price was incredible.

We can't wait to try the other cities and I wanted to thank you for the excellent customer service I received.

Aug 2021 - StayPlayExplore family stay at The Link Hotel

"Can't recommend Stay Play Explore enough"

I cannot recommend Stay Play Explore enough. What could have been a disaster (completely my fault) turned out to be a fab weekend.

Staff where quick to get back to me when I needed them ensuring our break went smoothly.

Hotel accommodation (The Link) was fantastic. Very clean, friendly staff and an amazing breakfast.

We chose Twycoss and Twinlakes for our attractions and the children have had a fabulous time. Needless to say we are completely exhausted now.

“Excellent service and acommodation”

The way the hotel has responded to covid was excellent. As a family we felt very safe and this has given us confidence to plan a stay cation when restrictions are lifted.

Oct 2020 - StayPlayExplore family stay at Sketchley Grange Hotel

“Best UK hotel stay yet!”

The pandemic has thrown all kinds of issues for families and the hospitality sector.

Nonetheless, this didn’t prevent Sketchley from offering a top experience for me and my young family.

Room sizes and facility was excellent, more than enough room for a family of five in one room.

The swimming facilities was of high standards (heated pool, jacuzzi).

Breakfast was good, though I would advise to reduce portion sizes for young children.

Aug 2020 - StayPlayExplore family stay at Village Hotel South

“Helpful staff”

First time stay at Village Hotel using Stay Play and Explore voucher. There was an issue with the voucher booking which they resolved quickly.
Facilities were great and whilst we have a pandemic it's advisory to book pool and meals when you're with kids. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
