Wake up to an African inspired reserve with zebras, antelopes, ostriches and the very rare Scimitar Horned Oryx roaming freely before your very eyes - it's the ultimate room with a Zoo! The hotel is perfect for family breaks with safari theming, African Adventure rooms, Penguins of Madagascar themed rooms, an indoor swimming pool, the family friendly Savannah Splash, gym & spa and the fantastic Zafari Bar & Grill. The hotel is part of the Chessington World of Adventures Resort and is just a few strides away from the Park. On weekends and during school holidays there are also animal meet and greets and character breakfasts. The hotel also has state of the art corporate facilities with 6 meeting rooms all with natural daylight, air conditioning and high speed internet access. At the theme park take on the KOBRA, our exciting spinning disc ride in Wild Asia, soar on the Vampire roller coaster through the depths of Transylvania or take a fiery spin round Dragon's Fury. Take a walk on the wild side with tigers, lions and gorillas in the Trail of the Kings, go underwater with sharks and stingrays in the SEA LIFE centre or journey to our new Wanyama Village & Reserve where the zebras and antelopes roam.

Booked a Gruffalo themed room. All was lovely apart from at every opportunity they are trying to get more and more money from you. We paid £1200 for 2 nights and entry to the park. This amount also included the kids entertainment and breakfast. The room had pieces in there that

After reading some recent bad reviews I was very sceptical about staying at the Safari hotel, however I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself was nice & clean, the restaurant and bar had a good selection of food and wonderful views of the safari park. However I think the

I booked a one night family stay in January for May 2019. On check in, I was very surprised to be told by the receptionist that I had a double booking. Advised to call the hotel reservation company, I duly called them. They advised Chessington Safari hotel had taken £209 for a

We had the displeasure of staying at your hotel on Saturday 18th May. We booked the hotel to celebrate our sons 10th birthday with a view to booking Alton Towers in July. I can honestly say I will not be wasting £200 on a hotel that states it is 4* and clearly is not. We

Stayed here for work, early in the year and not on school holidays so the rate was reasonable and it was quiet. Nice surroundings, decent room, tiny gym. My one major annoyance was that I booked and paid through Hotels.com as i do for 1 or 2 hotels a week for work, they
