Thanks Jon! I was so pleased to be there for the first night - as was my little one. I must admit I was dubious at the cost vs. quality that the hotel could provide, and I completely get it now. You're paying for the brand, the exclusivity, the entertainment, and also - the quality. It's one of the best 'family friendly' places I've stayed in, everything you need is to hand, and they really do cater for younger families. I've got to sit through and edit hundreds of pictures, ready for the review - but Alton have really pulled it out of the bag here. It's a shame that only paying guests can go inside and have a good look at it, but equally, I get that they don't really want loads of the public sitting enjoying the entertainment for free, when others have paid for it. Trust me though - it's fantastic!
