Alton Towers opens interactive themed CBeebies Hotel

Scbeebies hoteltaffordshire’s Alton Towers theme park opened what has to be one of the UK’s finest child-friendly hotels at the weekend. The CBeebies Hotel enables toddlers and younger children to get up close and personal to their favourite characters from the BBC pre-school cartoon network.

A collection of 76 rooms and suites are themed on the likes of Swashbuckle, Postman Pat and Bugbies. The décor and ornamentation in each room is bright and a perfect embodiment of each of the characters.

The units have been designed for practicality too and are equipped with cots, baby baths and kiddies seats for the toilets. All the options have segregated sleeping zones for adults and children. Standard rooms are configured for four occupants while the larger suites can accommodate seven.

The fun begins at check-in with a reception area boasting scores of magic buttons, fancy lighting and interactive attractions. There is even a magic tunnel to the souvenir shop. The Windmill Restaurant adds to the fun and is a colourful melange offering buffet meals with the likes of wholemeal pizzas and fish finger dogs.

The Musical Meadow is the CBeebies Hotel’s in-house entertainment centre. It is open 14 hours a day and offers a programme of shows and audience participation. The shows are a blend of video and live artistes with numerous highlights inclusive of the Swashbuckle Game Show.

Adults have not been completely left out of the equation as the Musical Meadow incorporates a bar too. Another bonus of staying at the CBeebies Hotel is that guests get to enter Alton Towers’ CBeebies Land one hour before other visitors.
