As you would expect from a hotel next to the park, it is very expensive. Unless you get a special deal, the hotel will be far pricier than similar quality hotels further away, but in my opinion it is worth it.
You can enjoy the park so much more knowing you are just a few steps away from your hotel, and there is enough entertainment and different dining options at both hotels that kids and adults will be easily entertained.
I have not stayed at Splash Landings hotel, just the normal hotel each time, but it has always been clean, and the garden area with fountain is beautiful at night to sit and have a drink around.
I have eaten at both the Grilllhouse (fantastic food, top recommendation for adult groups) and the Secret Garden. The latter looks like any standard restaurant and we expected standard pub food, but were pleasantly surprised by a very high quality and tasty meal, so apologies for the assumption!
The only downside I would have is, though friendly, the staff have not been very helpful at any of our stays; to the point that I had to walk back to our hotel from the water park (in soaking wet gear, freezing) to get money because we had been mislead about paying on our room, and they offered absolutely no assistance in the matter, essentially receiving a shrug of the shoulders - hence the 1 star I'm giving to service as I have been bothered enough to file a full complaint about it.
Don't let the poor service deter from a lovely hotel with a great location though, the easiest way to sum up our visit is we will be going back again!
