In 2011, Drayton Manor Theme Park extended its offering by opening a brand new hotel and an onsite restaurant and bar which serves up delicious meals; five years on, both were out to celebrate their milestone anniversaries.

Never one to hold back on fun,we went all out to celebrate this great achievement and invited everyone to get involved!

With the Grill Inn’s birthday on Monday 8th August and the hotel’s on Monday 15th August, families enjoyed a  free slice of tasty birthday cake and not only that, if it was a guest’s birthday they received a free desert with any main dish ordered at The Grill Inn.

The Hotel also celebrated by offering guests the chance to win a surprise goody bag in their room. What’s more, if a visitor was lucky enough to book room number 5, they were welcomed with a special birthday surprise and VIP goody bag! Congratulations to the Roger’s family, who won Thomas goodies, family tickets to the Park and VertiGO.

Over the past five years, the Drayton Manor Hotel has gone from strength to strength and continues to offer a fantastic memorable stay for all the family. It originally opened with 11 Thomas & Friends™ themed rooms which has since grown to 15, due to popular demand. Not only that, little ones can even enjoy a character breakfast, where they spend some fun time with The Fat Controller himself!

Along with the hotel, the onsite restaurant, The Grill Inn, has definitely achieved what it set out to do in 2011, which is fill visitors’ tummies with mouth-watering food, whether they are spending a day at the park and looking to refuel, or just popping out with the family for a delicious dinner. The restaurant serves up dishes from its tasty Smokehouse menu and is perfect for any occasion.
