Stayed for my daughters 7th birthday, as she wanted to go away this year rather than have a big party. I must say that this hotel was excellent and in her words was " the best birthday ever!" The check in was very efficient and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. A special thanks must go to Jimmy in the restaurant.
The bedroom was very clean and functional, with the kids enjoying the fun of the bunk bed. There was a nice touch with the kids and adult toiletries. However I have to point out that the double bed was rather uncomfortable for us parents and we didn't have a great night's sleep due to it. We could tolerate this though for 1 night, maybe 2 nights max!
We ate in the buffet restaurant which was rather pricey but to be expected. We were however pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food with lots of choice to keep everyone happy. The restaurant temperature (and actually all of the hotel) was on the warm side due to the swimming pool adjacent. There is a walkway connecting this hotel and the Alton Towers Hotel, and the temperature dropped significantly as we reached the latter.....wasn't really a problem for us though.
If you are wanting to choose between this hotel and Alton Towers one...and you have children, I would 100% choose Splash Landings as this is decorated more for the little ones and seems more child friendly. If you don't have children I would probably choose the other one. There are kids running down the corridors until late so I would recommend a room at the end.
The water park was good fun and there was enough for the kids to play in the theme park at this time of year.
To sum everything up, I would recommend the hotel for the child friendliness and can't fault the service at all. It's a great place to take the children and at the end of the day, that's why we were there, so 4 stars from us. My daughter just didn't want to come home!
