We stayed at the Legoland hotel over the May bank holiday and were a little nervous having read some recent negative reviews. The hotel was absolutely amazing. As soon as we walked through the door our luggage was put into storage for us (and was already in our room when we returned from the park) and check in was simple and took minutes. The receptionist was very friendly and keen to help us get into the park as quickly as possible. We were in the park by 9.40am and straight onto one of the two rides which open early for hotel guests. After a full day in the park we returned to experience the hotel. The room was brilliant - spotlessly clean and great fun for the kids. They had a little treasure hunt quiz to do and lego prizes in a fun safe. The main bedroom had a double bed and then a separate area with bunk beds and a pull out for the kids. We were able to order a film for the kids after dinner on their TV and watch what we wanted to on our TV. The bedlinen was luxurious quality and the beds very comfy. Lots of towels in the bathroom which was also spotless (comments on tripadvisor relating to cleanliness - we didn't see any dirty areas at all). We had dinner in Bricks restaurant which has also had some poor reviews. In our experience the food was excellent quality, hot, fresh and a huge range. There were absolutely loads of servers who were busy clearing plates and making sure the buffet areas were tidy and well stocked. This was the same at breakfast as well as dinner. The dinner was £18.99 per adult and £7.99 per child for dinner. This was very good value considering the range of choice available including soups, salads, main courses, ice creams and toppings, desserts and a lovely selection of quality cheeses and biscuits. As much pure fruit juice, water, milk, fizzy drinks and tea and coffees were available too included in the price. There was a lot of fresh vegetables and fresh fruit to choose from and you could eat as healthily as you wanted to with chicken, fish and roast meats on offer as well as more "fast food" type items such as ribs and chips. There was evening entertainment for the kids in the form of a "party" with singing and dancing led by legoland staff while parents could enjoy a drink in the bar in the vacinity. Our kids decided they would prefer to play on the X Boxes available in the childrens area so we still had an hour of adult time while the children were safely occupied within sight. We only booked the "standard theme" room - I am not sure what you get for the "fully themed" rooms but to be fair there is little else you would need. I don't think I would pay extra for a view of the park as you spend all day in there anyway. We will definitely book again - an amazing weekend. The queues were long in the park but what can you expect on a bank holiday which was also featuring a Star Wars special event? We just planned what was most important and did those things first and then picked out from the quieter activities later. And the Star Wars characters definitely added to the atmosphere.
