I have just returned from a 2 night stay at chessington and we had a fantastic time. I had an adult, a 9 year old and a 3 and 4 year old with me and there was plenty to do for all. The whole place was magical, the zoo, safari, all of the rides, the outdoor activity trail and the whole atmosphere of the park was great. The kids love the Gruffallo theme running throughout and the Gruffalo ride was amazing even us adults enjoyed it. The park was clean with ample places to eat but to save on cost we brought packed lunch for the day and then ate in the restaurant in the evening. I do recommend two days here as there is so much to do and you won’t have to be rushing around cramming it all into one day. The hotel was lovely also, we had the monkey temple room which had a great little treasure hunt in there to keep the kids occupied with treasure hidden in the safe and they had to crack the code to get it open. The rooms were very spacious as the kids had their own part with bunk beds and separate TV which is a god send at night so the adults can watch their own tv and the kids watch films. Everywhere in the hotel was clean and tidy and the focus on animals throughout was lovely. We had a great view over the reserve from our room so could see the gazelles and other animals in the evening. The pool area was great for kids too nice shallow pool with slides and water activities, they also had an adult pool with jacuzzi and the whole area was clean and tidy. There were lots of children’s film characters walking around the hotel which added to the ambiance and fun. Breakfast was included in our package and there was plenty of variety even for the fussiest eaters. We are at the buffet restaurant which was nice not much variety just a choice of 3 meals but certainly filled a whole after a long day and very reasonably priced (only £1.95 for age 3 and under that included unlimited soft drinks too). If you stay over in the resort hotel you get access to the park an hour earlier which is great for the busier rides as at 9am there was no queue at all! Overall highlights are gruffalo ride and theme throughout, the focus of animals and jungle to create a magical adventurous atmosphere for the kids. Collapse

Great day here with the kids. Went on the gruffalo ride a few times which is brilliant. Took my 6 year old on the cobra. He was nervous to start with but afterwards he said he enjoyed it. Both 3 & 6 year old loved the scorpion express. I bought cereal packs before going with "adults go free" so saved cash on entrance. Felt more relaxed here than Legoland don't know if that was because it wasn't as busy. Overall a great day Collapse

Had a really good evening. Staff made a great effort was particularly pleased with the effort of the gate staff who dressed up in costumes really set the atmosphere.
