Once parked, head over to the main entrance where a colourful theming feature sits outside which has been designed for little ones to be able to climb on and interact with. One of the hotel’s key features is that only residents are able to access the accommodation.

An application for an extension to the Alton Towers Hotel was submitted at the beginning of August 2015, followed by revised plans in September 2015 detailing the proposal’s 76 bedrooms, restaurant, café, bar and indoor entertainments area.
With an extension to the Alton Towers Hotel having been in the pipeline for several years, the plans were finally realised when the Resort opened the first ever CBeebies Land Hotel in July 2017, after over a year’s worth of construction.
