Staying with Children

As a family-run hotel, we know a thing or two about what makes families tick.

A family-friendly hello

Your little ones will receive an extra warm welcome when they arrive at The Runnymede on Thames, receiving a Runnymede goody bag complete with a colouring pack and soft toy.

After you arrive, it’s time to get settled into one of our family-friendly rooms. We can supply cots for babies, or you can stay in a duplex with a separate child’s sleeping area if you’ve got bigger children.

Just let us know if there’s anything we can do to make your family’s stay more comfortable – we can do everything from organising babysitting services to bringing you board games and child-friendly room-service.

Things to do with children

We’ve got plenty to keep your little ones occupied when you come to stay at The Runnymede on Thames. Take them for a splash in our indoor and (seasonal) outdoor pools and let them run around in our very own enclosed children’s playground. We’ve also got wide lawns with oversized sets of Connect Four, Jenga and other games, which will keep the whole family entertained for hours. A table tennis set and tennis courts helps get those competitive family juices flowing too!

If you want to venture further afield, wander up to the Runnymede Pleasure Grounds for modern play equipment, a summertime paddling pool and plenty of other children’s amusements. We’ll give you some seed to feed the ducks along the river too. Take in some history at the Magna Carta Monument and other memorials, or take a boat trip upriver to Windsor and the famous Windsor Castle. Mum or Dad can even play captain for the day by taking out one of our electric family riverboats, complete with all-important picnic snack boxes to keep the munchies at bay.

The Runnymede on Thames is also within striking distance of theme parks including LEGOLAND® Windsor, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures and the Warner Bros. Studio for The Making of Harry Potter tour. Find out more about our family theme park breaks.

Dining with Children

Our Leftbank Restaurant is just perfect for families. Buffet style dining at its best. Our chefs freshly prepare a range of healthy meals and treats, ensuring there’s something ideal for each and every member of the family. Our Duckling Dinners costs just £10 per child.

Make your child’s meal even more memorable by letting them create their own pizza or build their own burger.

In the morning, our array of buffet breakfast items includes everything from cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurts to all the freshly-cooked English breakfast staples for those with bigger appetites. Kids just love our waffles!
