My son absolutely loves thomas and this hotel and thomas land where his vision of paradise. We got room number 1 very close to reception and was a good size, clean and we had a great nights sleep. We had just one problem and that was the plug in our bath was broken and I took it out and it was covered in hairs. I spoke to reception manager and he sorted it straight away but I must apologise to castigergirl from previous review as he told us he had changed it for another room and it looks like he swapped it with theirs.
Great to have entertainment on for kids but 6-8 is across meal time so couldn't stay long. The Land train which takes you to entrance is also very welcome. Ate in hotel and food was good although a bit pricey but the train track is a good idea and my son enjoyed playing with his train on it so big tip take a couple of trains with you. Breakfast excellent and for the price I paid for stay and play with the offer I got a great deal.
Overall a great stay and my son already nagging to go back. I will definitely go back if I can get the great deal again under £100. It's worth relaxing in the hotel before a long drive home and just to mention thomas land was fantastic, almost had it to ourselves, weather great and a special mention to the Father Christmas who was excellent. He was very patient with my slightly apprehensive son and we had loads if time with him never felt rushed.
