Travel | Five Reasons To Stay At The Alton Towers Resort

18 September 2019

Cbeebies Hotel, Alton Towers
A trip to Alton Towers can be so much fun for all the family but it can also be very exhausting. Even though we don’t don’t live to far away we usually make the most of our visit by booking a night stay at the Resort. Staying the night has lots of benefits but here are our top five reasons why we think you should stay at The Alton Towers Resort.

A Choice of Accommodation To Suit Your Family and Budget
The resort started with just the Alton Towers hotel but now you can also choose to stay at Splash Landings which is usually slightly cheaper. If you have little ones you may like to stay at the Cbeebies Hotel which is the newest out of the three hotels aimed at younger guests. If you fancy something different you can choose to stay in the Enchanted Village which offers Woodland Lodges and Tree Houses. The newest addition to the accommodation available at the Alton Towers Resort is the Stargazing Pods which are a budget friendly option.

Inside the Alton Towers Arcade
A Wide Variety Of Entertainment
Each hotel has lots of entertainment to keep you happy during your stay. The singers at Sir Algenons Bar at the Alton Towers Hotel will keep you entertained during the evening whilst you enjoy a relaxing drink. If you want entrainment for the little ones then head to Margaritas Bar at The Splash Landings Hotel where they have fun and games for the little ones and usually have a disco too. They also have two amusement arcades too.

The Waterpark at Alton Towers Resort
The Waterpark
The Waterpark at Alton Towers Resort is a must and us a day out in itself. Ride the waterslides, lay back on a rubber ring and enjoy the lazy river or head outside and enjoy the jacuzzi. There is something for everyone to enjoy and the best part is it is tropical temperatures inside so you feel like you are on holiday.

Mini Golf at Alton Towers Resort
Extraordinary Golf
Extraordinary Golf is also a great way to enhance your stay. The two courses take you on a journey through Alton Towers most popular rides. Each course has 9 holes each and you can either choose to complete one or both it’s up to you.

Enjoy Another Day In The Park
If one day wasn’t enough for you then you can head back in to the park the next day to do it all again. Hotel guests are entitled to Early Ride Time so you can head to the park first thing to beat the queues you could also use your extra day to explore the Alton Towers Gardens
