Merlin Entertainments has opened its first ever CBeebies Land Hotel at Alton Towers Resort, and the new LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel at The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort.
Following the launch of CBeebies Land in 2014 at Alton Towers, the new hotel features 76 themed rooms set across four floors. Designed exclusively for pre-schoolers and young families, the hotel includes its own dedicated entertainment area, restaurant and a reception area. With a full entertainment program running throughout the year, the new hotel includes over 5,000 hours of live shows, character ‘meet and greets’ and play areas.
The new LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel at The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort incorporates 61 themed Wizard and Knight bedrooms – each Knight room is home to a 17kg LEGO® dragon, while each Wizard room houses a family of three LEGO® owls. The hotel houses over 2.1 million LEGO® bricks and 657 LEGO® models. The hotel also features an a la carte Tournament Tavern Restaurant and a Jester’s Play Den.
This announcement follows a number of recent accommodation openings at Merlin’s attractions – including the LEGOLAND® Florida Beach Retreat, the Knight’s Village at Warwick Castle, LEGOLAND® Deutschland’s Holiday Village, Gardaland Adventure Hotel in Italy and Explorer Glamping accommodation at Chessington World of Adventures in the UK.
Justin Platt, Managing Director, Resort Theme Parks, said: “Building on the success of our recent accommodation openings, the opening of CBeebies Land Hotel and the new LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel is another important step in our accommodation strategy, as we continue to seek opportunities to transform our theme parks into multi-day, short break destination resorts. Merlin is leading in developing fully immersive, themed accommodation and these two new concepts are a critical next step in achieving our goal of opening 2,000 new “room keys” before the end of 2020.”
