We stayed 2 nights Fri-Sun during half term 2 adults, 15, 7, 4 year olds and 2 year old twins(7 in total)we have stayed at the Safari Hotel on many occasions but this time wasn't the best.. We were unable to book the swimming pool at all during our entire stay because it was fully booked, straight after check in we tried to book breakfast for the following morning and all they had was 7am or 10.15am so we booked 10.15 which was annoying because there was hardly any food left, the coffee machine was giving out milky water not coffee plus having breakfast at this time meant it was taking up our time in the park baring in mind park closes at 4pm... We had evening meal in the Safari restaurant food was good but felt choice was limited and the restaurant was freezing cold there was a cold breeze coming in from the door at the back leading to the temple restaurant area so it wasn't a pleasant dinning experience.. Following night we ate in the Temple restaurant, again food was good but very limited choice. We made the most of our stay we had 2 rooms which were nice and comfortable the hotels are nice but we feel the number of guests they have staying there is too many for the facilities like the pool, restaurants, entertainment they are not big enough for the amount of guests wanting to use them, same goes for the lifts we waited 10 minutes to get a lift down we couldn't use the stairs because we had a double buggy and luggage to take down overall we had a good time but not sure we will rush back which is a shame as we have had lots of good short breaks there in the past...

Zoo - waste of time and money

Worst zoo I have ever been to. Solitary lion and tiger. Most animals hidden except for feeding time pm. Staff don’t know where anyth8ng is, and signage useless. Very disappointing and not worth the title Zoo

We booked for the February half term. Staying overnight in the Safari hotel. The room was clean, well decorated and had everything we needed in it. Including a small fridge, which was handy for the baby's milk. On arrival to the park, it was full, as would be expected in half term. The parking Marshalls weren't the best and were directing people in all manor of ways to park. We got place right over a road junction for an exit point? It was chaos. The park itself was ok. The animals excellent, but i felt that by the gorillas, lions tigers it was a health and safety accident waiting to happen. Far to many people were squeezed into a tiny place. With no one monitoring how many people were down there and only one route in or out. There are very limited rides open at the moment the gruffalo and the hocus pocus were pretty much it. Although my daughter enjoyed both the queues were 50 mins each. We booked in for an evening meal at the temple bar/buffet. The food was basic, but plenty of variety. With staff always on hand to clean up. The down side was how dark it was in there. We sat by the window and it was still really too dark to eat a meal. It also gets very, very, very loud every 15 mins when the "temple" comes to life with this tale of the monkey treasure! Breakfast was disappointing. The food was very cheaply done. The muffin were stale, sausages of poor quality. All in all, it felt like a cheap version of everything. Cheap toilet roll, cheap food, cheap bed linen. If only they paid more attention to the little details on the rooms/breakfast like they do in the lobby. Collapse

Had a lovely 2 day stay at the safari hotel. My 2 grandchildren loved it! Queues were awful but expected as school hols. We had an hour on 2nd day to use some rides b4 park opened which was brilliant! Hotel lovely, rooms nice. Bunk beds not very comfy! The food in the restaurant is really good but quite pricey. All in all a brilliant time and we will be back! Collapse
