About The Elms Hotel & Spa - a luxury family hotel

A little indulgent and worth it!

Part of the Luxury Family Hotel group The Elms is beautifully positioned in the heart of rural Worcestershire set in ten acres of mature parkland and stunning gardens with fabulous views over the Teme Valley. Facilities include Ofsted registered childcare in The Den which is full of toys and activities galore for little ones to while away the time; air-hockey, board games and an Xbox are available for older children. A fabulous outdoor adventure playground, croquet lawn, trampoline and space galore to run around in is free for all. The Spa at The Elms is a very welcome retreat for parents, offering a range of relaxing treatments, while the children can be entertained in the said crèche above!.

The Elms is a grand country house - but it somehow feels like home - except that there's far more space!  There is a huge emphasis on having family fun (as with all the Luxury Family Hotels) which makes for a superbly relaxed family holiday - be it a luxurious one. Every facility imaginable is available to keep the children happy and entertained and the adults relaxed and pampered.  

Supervised fun in The Den includes painting, cooking, face painting, cress heads, masks, calendars, card and puppet making.  There are plenty of toys for all ages ranging from ride-ons to X-boxes, it is the perfect venue for younger children and gives adults the chance to savor some of the grown up aspects of The Elms - be that the fantastic spa (that is incidentally also extremely family friendly), the relaxed communal rooms, the delicious food in the 2AA rosette restaurant or a quiet drink reading the papers. And of course there are the 10 acres to roam and explore and enjoy the simple things in life.

The 23 bedrooms and suites are sumptuously and individually designed. All have the little touches that remind you that you are somewhere special; comfy big bed, goose-down duvet, fluffy robes and towels and luxury toiletries; the flat-screen TV, DVD player and internet access ensure that all entertainment amenities are available to you. As far as baby equipment is concerned cots, z-beds, high chairs, changing mats, nappy buckets, sterilisers and bottle warming are all provided.

The beautiful bedrooms do vary in size so check before booking so that you have enough space for extra zbeds or cots.   Interconnecting rooms are available as are suites that are more compatible to the family of four than the double/twin rooms. Children sharing parents' rooms are accommodated free of charge with just meals charged as extra. Children's High Tea is served daily in the Pear Terrace at 5pm.

All rooms are connected to a reassuringly state of the art baby listening service so that you can enjoy the formality of dinner once the children are in bed. Babysitting can be arranged should you prefer.

There are loads of places to visit including the Teme Valley, the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds for gorgeous walks or else there's Brum to get a sneaky shop in(!), Cadbury's World, the Severn Valley Railway as well as the Safari Park 15 minutes up the road.

The hotel says:

"The Elms today provides families with stylish and desirable family breaks through a unique combination of superb Ofsted registered childcare, great family facilities, delicious food and wine, a beautiful Spa and understated yet attentive service in a seductive and luxurious setting."

We agree.
