Our party consisted of 6 adults, two 7 year olds, an 11 year old and a 12 year old. Wew were there to celebrate 2 birthdays.
When we arrived at the hotel all the children regardless of age were very exited to see the huge lego dragon outside belching smoke. Even the adults rediscovered their inner child.
Reception was very efficient and booking in took next to no time, especially as we were having 3 rooms. We had 3 Kingdom rooms on level 2, which is the same level as the bar and restaurant, but we found this to be no problem with noise. One major problem for the hotel is that it only has 2 rather small lifts. We spent ages waiting for them when we used them and used the stairs alot. Needed to have double this really. If you have a wheelchair user bear this inmind.
The rooms were amazing. The children loved having there own no adult area and could not wait to solve the puzzel and open the safe.
The childrens play area within the hotel looked great but after a while it lost its appeal as there was not really much to do. Although the website said there was entertainment there was no sign saying where and no one we spoke(guests) saw any either.
We ate in Bricks Family Restuarant. This was £18.95 per adult and £7.95 per child for an all you could eat and drink (soft drinks only) buffett. Personally I found the choice of food for both the children and adults rather limited. What was there was not refilled very often and also tasted quiet bland. One up side though was the staff had no proble with us taking drinks out of their and sitting in the bar area with them after dinner.
Now the Swimming pool area. The pool had been closed for a some time prior to our stay and only reopened the day before. This could explain why it was so cold in their. Our kids love water but even they only managesd half an hour before asking to leave. Another problemis the small size of the pool area. There were at most 50 people in their but the noise level because of its size sounded like 5000. The life guard had to wear ear protectors. If you do use the pool my best advise is to change before you go down to it as the changing rooms are too small to accomodate more than a few people at a time. We spent 15 minutes afterwards waiting to get dried and changed.
Breakfast the following day was another buffet and again the food was ok but nothing special.
Over all the kids had a great time which is why we went there. And for the price of £89 per room including breakfast I cant really justify complaining. However when I compare the Legoland Hotel to Splash at Alton Towers there is no comparsion. Yes you pay more for Splash but its worth it.
