We took our two children (girls ages 9 and 7) during half term for a one night stay. We had read good reviews and liked the idea of the themed rooms. The reception area is really exciting, full of lego characters and the staff were really friendly. The room was a Premium Kingdom room and the chilrdren loved all the theming. The room was really clean and the separate bunk room with tv went down well.
We had a sandwich in the bar and the children explored the play area. It was a bit too young for our older daughter but perhaps the whole place is really designed for 8 and under.
The kids loved the toilets that talk to you as you wash your hands.
The swimming pool is not quite a big as it looks on the photos and it was really chilly. There was a notice up explaining that it was cold but it was really very cold and meant that we didn't stay very long. All the mums in the pool looked uncomfortable!
There was a lego building area in the park and a film showing the history of lego which we watched. The staff were friendly but not very enthusiastic. There were just piles of lego to build with but no one helping or suggesting things to build which would have encouraged our children to stay longer.
Dinner was very busy as you would expect during half term. There was a range of food on offer and for £12 per head it was all ok, but not wonderful and the service is rather lacklustre. The models in the restaurant are fantastic though.
After-dinner entertainment was a disco for the children but mine were just slightly too old for it and it was very noisy and naff so we played with the lego in reception instead.
Our bedroom was very comfortable but even though we switched our air conditioning off there was still a noise coming from somewhere outside. This meant it took us ages to get to sleep and woke me up during the night.
Breakfast was very good with lots of choice to suit everyone and we all really enjoyed it.
Overall we paid about £200 for room and dinner and while it was fun I expected the quality of the food to be a bit better but perhaps I am being picky. It all felt a bit like going to a Motorway services or a Harvester.
We will go back to the park when it is open (they give you two free tickets if you book the hotel before March) but we wouldn't stay at the hotel again. I am sure if you have boys under 8 this is a dream location.
