The Carlyon Bay Hotel has beaten more than 200 other contenders to win a national ‘Bring the Kids’ award in a black tie gala ceremony that took place in Bedfordshire last week.

Organised by the Best Loved Hotels group which annually inspects all the quality hotels it showcases throughout the UK and Ireland, the award recognises Carlyon Bay’s family facilities.

These include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an outdoor adventure play area, a wide range of children’s entertainment, a supervised playroom, free children’s lunches, ice creams and soft drinks and free buggy rides down to the hotel’s private beach.

“We take great pride in being a place where parents and children of all ages can relax and enjoy themselves so this award means a great deal,” said Brend Group director, Matthew Brend.

“I’d like to thank all the Carlyon Bay Hotel staff who work so hard to make sure our guests enjoy themselves to the full.  They thoroughly deserve this recognition.”
