Covid-19 Update
We are now reopen to guests

We can’t wait to see you again!

We are delighted to confirm that Drayton Manor Hotel is now open to all guests!

Over the last few months, our brilliant team have been busy getting our hotel ready so that when you’re ready to travel again, we’ll be ready to welcome you back.

We evolved our high standards of hygiene to include additional COVID-19 protocols and best practices, to not only give you greater confidence but also give our hotel team the protection they need. Over the coming weeks and as further guidance is provided, we will continue to work hard to review and revise our operating standards to ensure we’re ready to welcome you back into the safest possible environment.

We would like to thank all of our guests for their patience and support over this challenging time and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!


We also understand your travel plans might change more than usual, so for added peace of mind, we have more flexible cancellation policies available.
