Thanks for the info. I love Twycross Zoo too, and would recommend that anyone taking up this offer choose this as one of their 3!

That i'm not sure about. Nothing in T&C's saying that you MUST. Therefore I don't see why not!

Do the attractions have to be visited on ONE day or can you do it over 2?

Great offer. Which of the 4 hotels is best overall and best for location to the activities. Are the hotels fairly close to the attractions?

thanks. I'll check them all out and see the best one for location. It's a lot to cram in so the less travelling around the better. Thanks for posting this.

I have stayed at the hinkley and also at the marionette, out of the 2 the hinckley island is more memorable.

but avoid the evening buffet from there (hinckley island). i think was like £18 per head.
they offer ala carte there too.

locationwise, open google maps and see which is better, for the attraction you want to go,
also you can stagger your tickets, we did the zoo, snipton and conkers in 2 days.

Super Planner hits again!! Hottt

I have two child and a baby. Will I have to pay extra for the baby ?

Hi scanner. Just rang reservations and spoke to them about the Hinckley. A cot in the room is free of charge. Just specify that you need one when booking-by phone or online.
All the attractions will be free for your little one too. I would advise you drive as you will need to get to the attractions.
Hope this helps

Great deal if you can get a Saturday!

I don't think so. I would suggest you call the reservations team and ask. They seemed very nice when I called earlier and really helpful. Maybe they can help, don't ask don't get eh?!! The number is 0116 225 4000.

Done this before. It is excellent value and will do it again this year. We stayed at the Hinckley Island and as it was during half term they had used one of their meeting rooms to set up loads of kids games and activities and a big tv with Wii. We did one of the attractions with the hotel stay and used the other 2 on seperate days later in the year. Wish other tourist boards set up similar elsewhere in the country as it is such good value.

Just to add we stopped off at the Hinckley Island Hotel reception to buy the deal during the summer. We booked the hotel for October half term. They gave us the vouchers there and then so that meant we went and did one of the attractions in the summer, stayed in the hotel and used another voucher in October half term and used the last attraction voucher in December. It is quite flexible in that respect.

Oddly I stumbled across and booked this yesterday! Going Friday, extra nights in the hotel are £70 so for 179 were doing a 2 night break with the kids, should allow us to get around the 3 attractions

There should be a link in your confirmation Email for you to print out the E-Vouchers. I would have thought that youd have received an email by now. Check your junk folder and if still no joy, i'd give them a quick ring to chase it up as you're going tomorrow. Number is here....0116 225 4000.
