Alton Towers Resort


Accommodation suggestion for the Saturday night is the Travelodge at Rugeley, which is approx. £20 per person based on 3 sharing a room. The hotel is located around 35 minutes drive south of Alton Towers and is located just 100 metres from a Wetherspoons pub for evening meals and socializing.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Travelodge, then please check out Fairway Motel, which is just yards from the Travelodge.
