The best hotel suites in the UK FAQs

What makes it a suite rather than a room? 

A suite is usually much larger than the average hotel room, and includes a separate living area, attached bedroom and most often a dining room too. 

Are hotel suites usually family friendly? 

It all depends on the hotel. Some hotels feature dedicated family suites with plenty of beds, whether it is bunk beds, two doubles or queens, or a pull-out sofa bed in the living area. Many of the top suites have space for whole football teams, let alone families! 

If you're planning a sophisticated staycation that offers something extra special, our above list of luxury hotels UK is a great place to start looking.
