Can I just say that we had a lovely one night away in the Cbeebies Hotel at Alton Towers, and despite the price I think it was something totally deserved, especially after this long lockdow, both for the little one and mummy and daddy.
It was extremely nice to see Sophie being able to run around and just enjoy something again. And despite my initial anxiety for this covid situation and the fact that it was really busy, I can tell you that it felt like a safe environment and it was good to feel somewhat “normal”.
FULLY EQUIPPED ROOMS
We opted to stay for one night in one of the standard Bugbies Rooms (this is the themed suites with the yellow Cbeebies mascots and it looked awesome and also way cheaper than the other rooms).
After the check in, that was super, we took the lift up to our room and it was such a nice experience with the happy go lucky music played and with the colours changing lights.
It felt like living in a magical place and it was sad to come back home to “normality” and magnolia walls 🤣!
The rooms were spacious with a double bed and a separate children’s sleeping area.
It had everything you needed and you could tell and here’s are a few things I particularly liked:
- Black Out Curtains (for a well deserved sleep after a long day at Cbeebies Land)
- Interactive Play Wall in the kids room area
- Iron and ironing board
- Toilet seat with little mini seat attached
- Hair dryer
- Bottle Warmer
- Fridge for storing snacks and milk
- Tea and coffee facilities – Especially because they offer quality biscuits! Love a biscuit with my coffee! (everything was sealed in an envelope)
FOOD & DRINK
We took some food of our own to eat in the main chill out area, I don’t know for certain if this was allowed but everyone seems to be doing it and no one was stopping us so… fill up on snacks!
There was a cafe area to grab sandwiches and coffees from too though if you run out.
The Windmill Restaurant
We ate dinner in the Windmill Restaurant which was really nice. It wasn’t really cheap but I guess it’s nice to experience something similar, with all colours and Cbeebies’s characters around we paid around £40.00 for the 3 of us.
We had two burgers and Sophie had a lovely pasta with a garlic bread side (I’ve tasted it and it was yummi). As a dessert we asked to share a choco brownie and vanilla ice-cream.
We also ordered some room service later and have a really nice pepperoni pizza!
Breakfast was included in the package and was served in the same place, The Windmill Restaurant.
There was everything you could think of.. Sophie a toast and banana and we got a couple of muffins, orange juice and coffee to get ready for our second day exploring Cbeebies Land and the actual Alton Towers.
For breakfast you can also have a full cooked breakfast and a Continental buffet with fruit and cereal and unlimited hot drinks.
After breakfast we decided to head to our favourite attraction, which was The Sea life – Sharkbait Reef.
I leave you our vlog on Youtube of our two days at Cbeebies Land and Alton Towers.
