If you live in London or Surrey, you will have heard of Chessington World of Adventures. It is a fab theme park that also has a zoo, aquarium and petting zoo. Last year we went for Howloween, their cool Halloween celebrations during the October half-term. As part of our visit, we spent the night at the Chessington Safari Hotel.
We wouldn't normally think to spend the night at a Chessington hotel (the park has two adjacent hotels: Safari and Azteca), as it is only a 20-25 minute drive away from our house. But as we were offered a room for our review of the theme park, we thought it would be a great idea to check out the amenities. My children love staying in hotels, but a hotel that is decorated in a spooky fashion is even more exciting. They also loved that they had a little nook for their beds AND A TV. Husband and I enjoyed our comfy double bed and the complimentary WI-FI.
It was also just so easy sleeping at the hotel after a busy afternoon at Chessington World of Adventures. The next morning we woke up to a beautiful view of zebras and ostrich roaming outside. We then had a yummy breakfast with the characters from Madagascar. Moozles and Dubz were enchanted! And we loved the fact that we could enter the park 30 minutes before the general public. Shame there was no time to enjoy the swimming pool. Two days at Chessington and we returned home happy and tired. We would love to return to the Chessington Safari Hotel again, and check out the other themed rooms.
We were invited to stay at the Safari hotel as part of a review of Chessington's Howloween. I was not obligated to review the hotel. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
