Safari experience

Pros: The African theming
Cons: some of the dining chairs were looking a little grubby,and could do with cleaning . The amusement arcade games were a disappointment .
Location: The Leatherhead Road appears to be a busy road at anytime of day. We enjoyed a visit to NT Polesden Lacey and Royal Palaces Hampton Court.
Lucky to have a rear facing room overlooking the back of the safari park. This was spacious and clean . Breakfast was also looking onto the safari park and we were delighted each morning by the antics of zebra giraffe and various antelope and ostrich. The breakfast buffet was itself well stocked and the staff always pleasant. The bar too was always a pleasant atmosphere. The continual piped themed music we found relaxing and again atmospheric.

We were not informed beforehand that there was a children’s Christmas activity this weekend. A Santa sleepover! We were a party of 4 adults looking for somewhere to stay while attending a wedding nearby. Had we been told this, we would have never stayed here. At one point I had to ask 2 small boys to stop playing football outside our hotel room. Breakfast was a gunfight with children running around. I was behind one child while he pulled the fried eggs apart on the hot plate. Other guests we then expected to eat this food. Never again!

Right in the hub

The children loved it and going slightly out of season meant it wasn't rammed. Arriving just after 3 when main check in was meant a long wait to get keys. So if you book you pre booked a splash session( you can phone the leisure centre from 8am to book for that day) take in to account checkin may take longer than 10/15mins. We only did the zoo half and the kids had fun, we hadn't brought a picnic so had to buy lunch, which was very exspensive. would come back and stay, perhaps to try the Aztec hotel.

Even though the music at the front door can be annoying as they play it all the time, nice place.
