I went last July on an inset day and had the exact same experience as you 😬
This was my experience too. I’ll never go back
I agree. A year or two ago, it was looking very tired and run down. But it was owned by Merlin, not LEGO for years and was not maintained. LEGO’s owners bought Merlin just before Covid arrived, at the end of 2019 and it’s obvious they are spending money at Legoland. The shop was completely upgraded, there are new rides and even the cleaning just seems better. The papers said they paid £5bn+ for the whole Merlin business globally, so they obviously see it as an investment for the future. We went back a few weeks ago and we’re impressed with the improvements. (y) 🏼
Yeah wouldn’t go back… my son loves lego and I just can’t do it to myself again… was worst theme park we’ve ever been too also before you had to pay for car park… not sure if you still have to now but what a joke… 2nd day was much better with the fast track but your right it can be okay but at a cost… as someone else said on another comment pay extra or stay at home or find a better theme park
Still dirt cheap (skeptical) Not expecting much from Legoland.based off the comments above.

Looking for a hotel stay end of July will take a look
Has anyone actually attended paultons? The tickets are crazy expensive and they're never any offers like the Merlin parka
Per room or pp?
Previously there was some automation but have been issues more recently in getting the data, so is pretty manual now to pull together and manually validate. Reference London Chingford - maybe use the Google trending tool as a quick guide to see prices for next few months. Rates do look high. https://www.google.com/search?q=london+chingford+rangers+premier+inn
thanks. As per above is excluded. however the £10 code works on this patisserie valerie afternoon tea for two https://www.buyagift.co.uk/food-and-drink/afternoon-tea-at-patisserie-valerie-gift-experience-for-2-br-10778503.aspx

In awe of that username, and the fact you've had it since 2013 with no issues (lol) (lol) (lol)
Having taken up this offer last year, I can say you will definitely only choose the cooked breakfast option once in this establishment
Give them a call, worth a try.
(y) Woolacombe is fantastic, until you see how much a pint of beer costs lol.. The Red Barn place is nice but $$$... (horror)
That’s a bit harsh. Continued investment is what I’d say. Even the previous bull ring was run down and needed modernisation which I thought was long overdue. Agree 100%. (y) We stay in Ilfracombe and it’s ok but then drive to Woolacombe beach which is fantastic especially if you have young kids.
I am trying to get in touch with someone to try to amend by booking but am unable to access my reservation online (doesn't work). When using live chat I get told that they can't help me and redirect me to a phone number which no one seems to pick up :/ Anyone else managed to amend/cancel successfully? Thanks Edit: Managed to get in touch with someone finally at 0800 083 2841
Cheaper than booking the hotel in its own by a £100
London has fallen
Anyone stayed at Holiday Inn express southwark?
Hi thank you, could share a link pls, they are going to phone me back , thank you Found it😃
Aynho I used to test drive through there back in the late 80s 130 miles around the Cotswolds twice a day or night. You have to go a bit to get that in 8 hours around those pretty villages.Oh yes bargain deal
Dunno if it's been said but it works for any government owned/run site not just LNER. check money-saving experts website for the full list. It also includes Transport for Wales as well. So see which one is best for your trip.
Would have been great if they had extended it until end of May. It ends just before the May school holiday. Could have taken the kids on lots of cheap city visits.
Train ticket prices are an absolute joke. I have to commute to London Bridge quite often and, luckily, I can take an off-peak slow train, which is still only slightly cheaper than driving solo and paying the charges. Peak time LNER would double my monthly commute bill and It'd rather stay in a hotel for a week lol (and get a divorce?)
This is what should be normal prices !!. Compare with Europe prices.!
NY only, sorry...

Heard mixed reviews of this place. It’s a no from me.
Stayed there with the wife back end of last year. The lady that owns the joint is not very pleasant (in my opinion) the hotel is not great by any means! Food was horrible. This is only my genuine opinion but £89 is too much for this place! We actually left our 2 night stay after the 1st night……we have never done that before! There’s way better hotels in that area.
This is probably worth it so you can spend the afternoon in the Hollybush Inn just round the corner and not have to drive. Amazing pub
Stayed here before for one night when visiting peaks, was a nice stop over, nice grounds. Recommended.
is just a supplement charge - so buy voucher and then book and pay the extra, thanks Children are welcome at this hotel. You can stay in a Family Room for an extra £10 per child, per night. Family Rooms sleep two adults and two children. Children will stay on a room-only basis, with breakfast available for an additional fee (payable direct to the hotel; enquire on booking)
I actually hit the wrong pic, that's the crispy beef, this is the Buddha bowl! We haven't been since just before Covid so not sure what they're serving up nowadays but half the people in there were eating Buddha bowls last time I was there! If they've got rid of it it'll be replaced with something tasty I'm sure (y)
mmmm.... tell me more about this! I've booked to go on the 6th June and would happily have that for lunch! i cant see it on their menu though?
You should see the queue for Harrogate everyday!
https://www.bettys.co.uk/cafe-tea-rooms/our-locations/bettys-harrogate "The Bettys story started in Harrogate 100 years ago."
That ‘world famous Betty’s” tea room they mention is in YORK not Harrogate…..not that far but definitely a drive - and always huge queues outside.
How the hell do they get away with charging more for one adult and a child than they do for 2 adults? Surely that isn't legal?
Hint- security staff are in place at 9am so on the morning of check out, get the cases/bags in the car by 8.50 otherwise you can’t come in and out the side gate and you have to then queue with everyone else getting there early and going through bag checks etc. Go back and check out with cabins reception and hit breakfast.
I've stayed in those cabins twice with my girlfriend, granted we're in our late 20's. They are not that bad really and are very convenient. Especially when you finish the day on the water based rides and can be back in your room getting warm in 10 minutes.
not sure what we did wrong, we went on a Wednesday although half term so i guess that will make it busier.
So exactly how much money do they debit your account with before they hand it back 10 days later. Can’t find it anywhere.
That sucks, but I guess weekends are always super busy. Managed to go on a Thursday/Friday and had a great time. No queues and easily did everything we wanted. We were lucky to get the chance to visit on weekdays due to school inset days.
just got back from there, awful place. wouldnt recommend it, queue sizes are 60-120 minutes, a lot of the rides were closed, you can book a queue system but if you dont do it well in advance its either £95 per person or £10 each per ride. we have been to a few parks and always had a good time but Chessington isnt one of them.
Sucks a bit that your 1st day is on the day of arrival, who wants to travel 3 hours to get to the park then spend a day at the park , should be an option for the 1st day being the day after arrival Booking a 2nd day allows choice of day two or three for park access. Same rules should apply to day one

7th of may until 31st of August for just £89? Miles cheaper than renting!
A bit of a trek from the city centre and no free parking either.
Cancelable Vs non refundable considering current situation.
Yes indeed. £2 less, but on a flexible rate. The extras can purchased separately for not much additional cost, or you could manage without. The 10% discount on meals would be in the hotel restaurant, and additional cost. You will probably find better value restaurants outside the hotel. My main point is the flexibility to cancel without losing your money. I think that's more important than a coffee or £5 bottle of fizz considering what's been happening in the world over the last 2 years. Yes, some people might be happy to pay up front and risk losing the money if they get ill or have to cancel for any other reason.
I don't understand your calculation/comparison. This deal is for £89 for 2 - Deal includes accommodation for two in a Superior Double Room, with full English breakfast, a bottle of prosecco on arrival, a daily regular-size Costa coffee per person, and a 10% discount on lunch and dinner at the hotel. Your price is just £2 cheaper without the extras?
For anyone thinking about this, I bought it and tried to book some dates and every single weekend is taken (the hotel told me this after my third attempt at asking for a weekend).
appears to be back
It now says sold out which is a shame.
Not necessarily. Copenhagen is very close to Malmo, it's only around 30 minutes by train over the famous bridge. It's a 48 hour transport ticket. On a 3 night trip, you could easily spend 1 day exploring the Oresund area, and the other day exploring the Copenhagen area. To be fair, 2 or 3 nights isn't long enough to explore this part of the world. I'd like to go for a week and book flights+hotel independently.
Doesn't that defeat the object of a small break to Copenhagen?
I guess the grand parents will just have to sleep in the car in the hotel car park then as no one planned on paying for them? Actually the cost of the car park would be close to the cost of the room. Maybe park in Sainsbury's then? (confused)
On the bedside cabinet next to the family photo, in the unpaid for room!
If it's that far ahead, you could book now on a flexible rate, probably get quite a good price. If a better deal comes out later, you can cancel and rebook on the new rate. I do this all the time, you can actually get some good prices on flexible rates if you book far ahead.
"£189pp for a seven-night stay" seems to be a mistake, as further down in the description they only mention "a four-night stay from just £189pp", and I couldn't see any stays longer than 4 nights available.
Not to knock this find but I will agree with the fact Wowcher aren’t the greatest company to trust with these deals. I booked something like this some years ago and ended up in a best western that had bed bugs, in central Paris. Took me 5/6 months to get a refund
Looking at the Wowcher trustpilot how are they allowed on this site? https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.wowcher.co.uk - I thought there was a minimum review requirement…
