This was our 3rd visit to LEGOLAND, Windsor and we had 4 free tickets courtesy of the Sun so purchased another using Tesco Clubcard vouchers and decided to give the kids a treat staying at the LEGOLAND Hotel. Wasn't able to check in until 3pm so we were given a key to access lifts and areas of hotels. Wandering around the hotel and grounds we were able to walk through the gate straight into the park (although our tickets weren't until the next day) but gave us chance to have a look around at the areas we wanted to visit first. Once we'd checked into our room the kids were delighted with their lego gifts, 1 each In the 'den' and another in the treasure chest - even my two daughters of 12 and 13 who has never been interested in lego spent the next 20-30 mins building their model. Lots of lego to play with in the hotel. Pool area nice but nowhere next as big as splash landings (which is probably why you don't pay any extra!).
Buffet meal is best booked at the time of booking as only works out £50 extra, if booking at the hotel it's around £13.95 for adults and £9.95 for kids so bit more expensive.
We went out and found a McDonalds in Windsor, 10 minute journey away.
After a lovely buffet breakfast the next morning we ventured into the park which was on a school day so was a lot quieter than last year (we went august bank holiday and it was absolutely jam packed!). Had a lovely day, managed to get on most of the rides, didn't have to re-queue for the Viking Water Ride - just stayed on. Overall whilst the hotel is expensive, our break worked out not much dearer than buying everyone tickets for the park so had very happy children. Definitely worth a visit if you have lego-mad kids.
