    Shame you can only see the back of its head, because even the Horse must be laughing.

    Are Alton Towers actually trying to go for the Auschwitz look with these things or what? o_O

    Anybody willing to pay to stay in these need their heads checking.

    I'd be staying a lot if it's the cheapest.
    Mind you I'm also someone who wouldn't mind spending a night on the jubilee line....

    I understand you have restricted travel requirements (taxis ect.) from previous posts.

    But the Travelodge is a third of the price of these pods, bigger room with ensuite and only a very short drive away. Not to mention the local B&Bs.

    I don't see how this offer would really appeal to anyone at its current price, unless they just set that as full price so they can offer a bunch of discounts later - but these pods are worth £40 a night maximum considering the lack of facilities.

    Edit to correct spelling.

    I agree with you about the price.
    I had a splash hotel stay for £60 the first Monday of 2018 and that was with me walking up to splash reception and booking with a card there and then.

    I believe that they only have a limited rooms available at sale price, once they sell, then the price goes up.
