We stayed here from Sunday until Wednesday on a three night break including park tickets. Prices were very reasonable as we booked some months in advance, this is the best location for visiting the theme park speaking from experience as we did visit last year and stayed at a local hotel away from the park.
The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, our son has autism which we explained to staff on arrival and they could not of enough to help us, although the hotel does not provide room service, they delivered evening meals to our room each night.
The hotel is magical for the kids, with cbeebies characters roaming the hotel to meet kids and have pictures taken, there is also a fantastic pirate ship on the ground floor so kids can play and lounge and seating areas for the parents to relax with a drink and watch after a busy day at the theme park.
The food is as good as a Hilton hotel or any other premium brand hotel chain. The monorail to the theme park is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel, or if you choose you can take the longer walk, approximately 20 minutes to the park entrance. The hotel grounds also have a great fountain water feature and seating area to relax for stroll around.
Only downside we could see was that the lifts were very slow, and we felt it easier to take the stairs and carry the buggy to save time, one lift was out of order at the time but this could definitely be improved on, nevertheless this could not detract from a excellent all round experience.
We will be back again, highly recommended!
