OUR HOTELS

EXTRAORDINARY HOTELS FOR EXTRAORDINARY FAMILIES

Little Guest is a unique collection of luxury hotels designed for demanding families. For the very first time, parents can book with one click the ideal hotel that combines a high-end approach (design, gastronomy, spa, golf, etc.) and a real programme dedicated to children (baby-club, kids- clubs, sports and creative activities, etc.) in one click.

Quality label

We curate the best family friendly hotels with a rigorous checklist of things we expect to see to welcome babies, toddlers, children and teenagers. Each hotel is meticulously visited by a member of our team to ensure it ticks all the right boxes to be part of our Little Guest label.

Mission & values

Our mission is to offer parents the most inspiring selection of kids-friendly hotels, at the best price, bookable and with as much information as possible to welcome your little ones.

Moments shared with the family shape our memories forever. We live in a very fast paced environment where time flies at the speed of light. Our raison d’être is to offer families a relaxing holiday break full of precious moments and a great bonding between adults and children.

We look upon the personal development of our children. That’s why most of our hotels partners offer Spa treatments, Yoga classes, Nature Adventure trails as well as Sports and creative activities dedicated to them.

“Personal development of our children
is key to a successful family holiday”

OUR STORY

The Baby Bottle

Little Guest is the brainchild of Jérôme Stéfanski, Belgian serial entrepreneur, Dad of a 3-year-old boy.

On a Friday night, while his baby son Achille was six months old, Jerome decided to take his little family on a last minute city break. Shortly after, he announced to his wife: “For once, don’t worry about anything, I have already packed the bags. Let’s go!”

Arriving at their hotel at 1am, Achille was hungry: he was simply asking for his baby bottle and started crying very loudly, waking up other hotel guests. Jerome opened his baby’s suitcase to fetch for the bottle. Panic attack! He just realised he forgot the baby bottles at home which was a 2-hour drive from the hotel! Jerome went to the reception and asked to borrow a baby bottle. Second panic attack! The 5-star hotel does not have any baby bottles!

A young dad inspired

In the months following this episode, Jerome and his wife struggled to find hotels that met their needs as young parents, unwilling to make any compromise between the happiness of their child and their own. They lost a lot of time on the Internet or talking with travel agencies. They drew the conclusion that there was no significant online travel platform that caters for families with a rigorous screen check on children’s facilities and services offered by hotels.

Jerome decided to go hunting for these hotels and bring them together under a quality label.

Little Guest was born.
