                  10.0

                  It had a lovely safari theme throughout from the bedding, pictures on the wall and our girls loved the animals at reception. The pool was a great depth which felt safe for the children, the restaurant had a buffet dinner which was good value for money and excellent choices for adults and kids . Excellent location for chessington which was a great park, overall the stay and the park felt like a disney holiday.

                  The only problem we had was we had to wait to go into the pool due to the large crowds over easter break.We waited aroud 30 mins which was ok. If we didn't make before it closed at 8 - we would have had 2 very dissapointed children. But we were lucky.

                  I was initially given a smoking room although the booking clearly specified non-smoking. It took some negotiating and showing the 'non-smoking' request on the reservation in order to finally get a non-smoking room. The hotel manager told that this was a problem caused by Booked.net giving incorrect information at the time of reservation on the web. Please follow-up.

                  The view of the zebras and antelope, and a section of the zoo opening to guests early evening. A real treat. This hotel is good to stay in as a one off.

                  The food was very pricey, I paid for a continental breakfast £12 for a bowl of cereal and a slice of toast.

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  The hotel was extremely clean, the staff efficient and friendly and the whole safari theme was wonderful. The outside decking and rooms overlooking the safari park were terrific. The pool and spa were lovely and our room was stunning. We will be back again.

                  The breakfast was fabulous but very expensive

                • Family with children
                  4.6

                  Very bad experience. Arrived for what was meant to be a family room booking for myself, my wife and 2 kids. I was faced by the fact that they do not have any and they lodged us in a double room! They kept blaming Booked.net site for decieving me and they tried to avoid saying it was a mistake on their side. All sort of excuses starting from this room does not exist, another person saying the rate cannot be true, another saying it was not a confirmed booking, another one saying the booking came in one name so they had to downsize the room for one person, and so on and so forth...After 90 minutes of discussion and raising my voice a person claiming to be the manager came and suggested to shut me up with 50% discount!!!

                  The management and admin staff, very unhelpful. The fact that they did not honour the booking done through Booked.net website.

                • Single
                  7.8

                  Room and facilities were good.

                  Restrauant staff were excellent but reception staff were very poor and let down the entire stay.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  A base that was in easy access of what we wanted to do.

                  The breakfast room was very noisy and it plain the area had not been cleaned recently.

                • Group of friends
                  5.8

                  Convenient location as we were going to Hampton Court flower show and it was only about 5 miles away. Receptionist was pleasant. The bathroom was clean and looked as if it had been recently renovated.

                  The room had a damp smell. The walls are paper thin as I could hear someone snoring in the room next door. Room was very warm, no air conditioning system, window only opened a small amount so difficult to get air into the room. The room hadnt been cleaned properly as there was rubbish in the bin belonging to someone else. I wouldnt stay here again!!

                • Single
                  8.8

                  Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

                  Lots of children! Hardly surprising, though, given the location!

                • Family with children
                  5.4

                  Nearbyhood to a nice resturang/PUB.

                  We ordered a room for disabled, this showed up to be a standard room with a lower bath tub and one bed that was 1,35 m wide instead of normally 1,50 m! This is not acceptable, when a person is not able to use his leg and sharing the bed with his helper.

                • Family with children
                  4.6

                  Bed was comfortable to sleep in

                  Hotel overall was very cold and not at all welcoming. Staff were not friendly and lacked customer sevice skills. Breakfast was tasteless, and staff looked stressed and were not welcoming.

                  Room generally

                  V expensive wifi. £5 for 60min! Should have free access in reception and Monkey Puzzle. Makes working impossible as just not prepared tp be ripped off

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Location

                  The very newly fitted bathroom ( which was very well appointed) didnt have any heating or heated towel rail, I think for the price a would expect a nice warm bathroom.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, very clean, overall pretty good.
