Fot those of you who have kids and are thinking of going to legoland - Read on!
Went last weekend to spoil my 4 year old son beofre my next little boy comes along in 2 weeks and we had a fantastic weekend. Used clubcard vouchers for the whole weekend. This is how it went:
Stayed at The Marriott Hotel in Windsor 2 Nights B & B ?88.00 per night. This hotel is very impressive, pool and gym and kids can use the pool right up to 11.00pm. Breakfast very very good. Room very nice. Drinks very expensive and they charge ?7.00 per night to park your car (we parked just accross the road for free). Also keep the kids away from the Mini Bar!!!!!!
Went for a meal at Bella Italia which is about 10 mins away, again absolutely fantastic, food was top class, had ?50.00 in vouchers and i think we spent the lot, they have a good kids menu.
Went legoland which apart form the artic weather was fantastic and again only 10mins from Hotel and used Vouchers for this.
And if you get time, there is Windsor Castle.
I recommend this weekend, a great family weekend away.:)

Must get around to doing this too. Seems like a very good deal.

Longleat is great, and fab value with cc Deals.

We went last August when we were in a caravan within driving distance, and ended up going there twice during our fortnight's holiday. For those that have not been to Longleat, your Deals get you a 'passport' each, with all the Longleat attractions listed. As you tick off each item your passport cannot be used to revisit that same thing again (e.g. you can't do the safari twice) but you can get back into Longleat free another day to do the things you missed.

As it was so busy when we went and we took our time over the safari (having a picnic in the safe area and feeding the deer) it meant we had a lot left to do on our second visit. If you do this I recommend saving the boat trip for your second visit, as we thought this was the next best thing after the safari.

Not sure if this is any good to anyone who receives DLA, but I received a mailing at work today with the following info about Legoland -

Legoland Windsor provide free entry for the parent/guardian of child in receipt of DLA. You need to tale your DLA paperwork along and they will sort out the ticketing. You can also get short-cut access to the front of the queue for the child and parent/guardian.

We did this last August for DD's bday. We stayed at the travelodge in slough for either ?15 or ?26 can't remember which and got legoland tickets with tesco vouchers. The travelodge is 5 minutes walk from a main shopping street with restaurants etc including mc D s and it was a cheap fun weekend :D Pity about the fire alarm in the early hours :mad:

Thank you very much for this information rainbow. Have tried to rep you but I cant at the moment. VERY useful information. We have a Travel Lodge room booked at Heathrow for 2 nights in August and are going to Legoland then. Have emailed them to get confirmation (not that I dont believe you, but if I have a reply to take to back me up I will feel more confident asking.)

We are hopefully going to take the kids to Legoland sometime in August (doesn't matter when). Can anyone recommend a cheap, clean hotel, nearish to Legoland? Its for 2 adults and 2 kids and we'd like a non smoking family room. We aren't bothered with things like gyms etc, it is literally for somewhere to sleep and maybe have breakfast. I've been looking most of the afternoon and its doing my brain in!

Legoland is near Windsor - Thorpe Park is in Chertsey (you have to go round the M25)

only reason i ask is that there is a feltham 4miles away from Thorpe park that is why i was getting confused. Guess there must be to of them.

There is a premier travel Inn in Ascot - 5 miles from Legoland.
Windsor is closest town to legoland, not cheap for hotels but lots to do, lovely shopping, lots of restaurants and of course the river and the castle.

Legoland Slough was within very brief walking distance of shops and restaurants. I like that sort of travelodge but I'm a bit wary of some that seem to be stranded on the side of a road miles from any where :-(

Hi, can anyone help with discounts or ideas for costcutting staying near and visiting legoland in August. Would like to stay nearby 1 or 2 nights with 1 or 2 days legoland entry.

Hi Flo, we went to legoland last August - stayed in nearby Slough/Windsor Marriott hotel, which cost ?150 (= ?37.50 cc vouchers) we also ordered our entrance tickets using cc vouchers, we had a lovely time but do beware of expensive food, drinks (esp room service, ?6 for a bottle of stella! :jaw:) but there is a toby carvery just accross the road, which probably would have been a cheaper option for dinner ;)

We also stayed at the Mariott when we went, but I think it only lets you book with CC vouchers on weekends now

Most of the hotels round about do special rates which include Legoland passes which would work out much cheaper than using CC vouchers for hotel and passes separately, tho obviously invlolves using hard cash. Have you looked at the legoland web site? There is a link from there to hotels in the area (or used to be)

Flo if you wanted to hang on to your deals for Florida you might consider one of the ?26 rooms at the travelodge in Slough. It's pretty close to legoland and within walking distance of Slough High Street with a range of restaurants.Obviously not as nice as the marriot but another option HTH.

We did it last year all on deals went to legoland, stopped at Hilton then went to Chessington. Personally I wouldn't use deals like this again though we had a good time. Better to stop in the ?26 travelodge and get some BOGOF for legoland,they're always about.

Flo
17th July 2007, 18:14
Thanks everyone, I probably won't use deals, the travelodge sounds the cheapest option. Any ideas for BOGOF legoland vouchers at the moment.

We stayed at Marriott a couple of years ago and got a deal with 1 nights hotel and 2 day legoland passes. Can't remember how much it was but it was a good deal, I seem to remember (well must have been else we wouldn't have done it)

Personally, we use CC vouchers to get the annual passes for us all and then go this year and then again next year before they run out.

The kids love it there, we have just come back from a 4 1/2 day break and have the passes to go again this year if we get the chance, or before July next year, all on the same passes.

We stay in a nice 2 bedroomed apartment which is only 4 minutes in the car from Legoland, can't pay with CC vouchers for that unfortunately. We did look at using Hilton last year, but the cost just wasn't worth spending the vouchers on, something like ?800 for a 4 night stay (?200 in CC vouchers), for 1 room and further away.

We stayed at one of the Heathrow Travelodges, in one of their ?15 rooms when we went to Legoland....not luxurious by any means but might be worth looking at, although not too sure if any of their rooms will accommodate 5.

Windsor/Slough Marriott http://www.marriott.co.uk/Channels/hotels-uk/hotels/travel/lhrsl-slough-windsor-marriott-hotel/

You might want to ring them and ask if they could accommodate 5 in one room. It's a problem we have and you might find you need 2 rooms unfortunately......

Hi

Re the Marriott - check its not the 'courtyard' by Marriott Slough Windsor as its not included in the deals offer :o

We stayed at the Windsor/Slough Marriott last year with deals (?150 for 2 nights for 2 adults and 2 children), really nice, pool and gym too and only about 5-10 min drive to Legoland, nice buffet breakfast included, evening meals tasty but v. expensive tho but if you dine before 6 kids get a free buffet-type meal - choice of nuggets, spag bol, sausage + chips etc :)

thanks for that

i have had a look at marriott hotels terms and conditions on tesco deals website and unfortunateley it appears that that particular hotel no longer accepts them - which is such a shame as it sounds lovely!

Bracknell Hilton is quite close

If you look on the legoland website, they list some hotel that are nearby, you might see some there that you could book with Tesco deals.

You could also try Old English Inns, a chain of small hotels that take CCV, they have one called the Wee Waif which is only 12 miles away from Legoland. We have booked, they are charging ?90 a night for the 4 of us - 2 adults and 2 children. This includes breakfast, en-suite, sky TV etc. They also do lunch and evening meals that you can pay with CCV as it is a Green King. You do need to order the vouchers separatly though. When I booked the price per night was the same as what the web site said but I have noticed that the Tesco website now says that the website prices may not apply to CCV, but still worth trying. Hope this makes sense.
