We think a kid must have designed this hotel as everything about it joyfully shouts ‘Fun!’ From the moment kids arrive, they’re whisked off into LEGO-themed activities. Adults? You’re left to sort out the check-in. And it certainly is a late one – 4pm to be precise – but the hotel does offer the option of purchasing a two-day combo ticket with multiple entries into the theme park and water park. So you could drop off your luggage at the hotel in the morning and go have some theme park fun first. Once you’ve checked in, gather the gang and boogie in the disco lifts on the way to your themed room. Choose from the swashbuckling Pirate room, the Adventure room, with its jungle and fierce creatures, or the Kingdom room, decked in heraldry and fit for a king and his court. Whichever you choose, you will be met with a spacious family-sized room with bright colours and lots of surprises, including a treasure hunt. The genius of the LEGOLAND Hotel is in the thoughtful room details: kids are provided with mini bathrobes and slippers; separate washbasins in the bathroom stand at a child-friendly height; kids get their own TV in their sleeping area; and there’s even a tub of Duplo for the wee ones to play with. Come meal times you can choose between Bricks Family Restaurant (open for all meals) and the Di Mattoni Restaurant (open from 3pm-10.30pm only). The Italian restaurant is a decent choice and offers an à la carte kids’ menu but buffets at Bricks have tended to receive mixed reviews, particularly the bewilderingly large breakfast buffet. Still, the hotel ably caters to kids’ taste buds, even if adults aren’t so thrilled. Overall, this is a great hotel for families with fun, friendly staff and plenty going on to keep the kids happy.
