Adult Only Hotels UK
Hotels can change their policy so please check with your chosen hotel to ensure it's still exclusively for adults - and if it isn't please let us know and we'll remove it. If you know of a hotel that should be added please contact us. For inclusion in the list, hotels must at least have a 16+ rule. We hope you find a calm and relaxed place to stay.

Why was this site started?
This site was started to make adult only hotels in UK easy to find: travel websites often show hotels as adults only when they're no such thing; some adults only hotels' websites don't say they're adults only in a search-friendly way.
What do hotels mean when they classify themselves as adults only?
Some places say they're adults only so they can charge full price for children; or don't specify a minimum age so you never know; or say they're adults only yet host weddings that children can attend; or say they're adult only yet their restaurant is open to all. Hotels not on our list.
The hotels and B&Bs we list have at least a 16+ rule throughout.
Aren't hotels child-free anyway in term time?
Not at weekends, and term times don't apply to pre-school age kids. Whether your preference is for lively adults only hotels with entertainment or for serenely quiet places, the hotels we list are child-free all year round.
What sort of places do you list?
Everything from 5 star hotels with hot tubs for an adults only weekend to budget guest houses in seaside resorts. We trust you'll find the best adult only hotels UK for you listed on this site.
When was this site started?
This list of UK adult hotels and B&Bs that are ideal for holidays and short breaks in the UK for adults was started in May 2019.
Does this directory list every adult hotel in the UK?
We aim to list every UK adult only hotel and B&B. So far we've found just over 200 UK hotels and B&Bs with minimum age of at least 16, some are hotels for over 18s only. If you know of any other UK child-free hotel please let us know.
Will adults only hotels become easier to find?
Adult only hotels and B&Bs do better in searches for 'adults only hotels near me' or 'adult only hotels UK' if the words 'adults only' feature prominently on their website. Stating the minimum age limit also helps potential guests. We hope a link from this site may help too.
Which hotels can be added to this site?
Any hotel or B&B that only allows people over 16 on the premises - and makes that clear on their website - can be added (no charge, no commission). The key criterion is the hotel, restaurant, pool, function rooms, cottages or anywhere else on site are exclusively for adults.
Have a nice stay.
Whether it's an adult only hotel for a Christmas or New Year break, a Lake District hotel for a romantic adult only weekend away or a B&B where you can be sure your midweek break won't be spoiled by noisy children, we hope this list of UK adult hotels and B&Bs helps you find an enjoyable stay.
