Set in its own 7-acre landscape, the Alton Towers Hotel is located close to the park and next door to the Splash Landings Hotel and adjoining Waterpark. The hotel opened in March 1996, as the first hotel located in a theme park in the UK! The hotel takes inspiration from the travels of Sir Algenon Alton, whose personal memorabilia you’ll find around the hotel, such as his quirky flying machine invention in the entrance hall and the time capsule musical lifts!
After spending the day on your feet at the theme park, you can return to your room to relax. If you still have the energy you can explore the Alton Towers Waterpark by walking across the hotel walkway, or go downstairs to watch the live entertainment! If you really feel like pampering yourself there is a Spa located on the first floor of the hotel available for an additional charge.
Check in is from 3pm, although you can check in earlier if your room is ready. There’s always the option to leave your luggage with the porters if you wish to enjoy the resort’s attractions, and your luggage will be waiting in your room for you. Checkout is at 10am, and you can always leave your luggage with the porters, to collect at the end of the day. Don’t forget to visit the Alton Towers Hotel Shop, for your hotel and theme park souvenirs.
