Enjoyed Most: A real holiday feel, very comfortable beds and spacious rooms. The hotel was buzzing with excitement and yet the bedrooms were quiet. The perk of early entrance to the park saved hours of aiding for the big rides.
Other Comments: Food and drink were over priced and not great.Everything else was wonderful, including the staff.

Enjoyed Most: The swimming and splash zone were a wonderful bonus.
Other Comments: Loved it so much we stayed a second night. Brilliant faculties at the hotel and a large modern room overlooking a paddock of zebra giraffe and gazelle. The adventure park and zoo were great too, especially with the extra fast track and early entry tickets that were included. Oh and the evening treetop experience and lovely helpful staff must be mentioned too.
