Sun Jan 12, 2014 4:06 pm

In my opinion I prefer the ATH but what about everybody else?

I voted splash landings. Because it's cheaper and I love the views of the water park and the lobby. However ATH is posher and has better entertainment for older people.

Having stayed in both I prefer Alton Towers Hotel as it is nicer and cooler temperature wise than splash Landings.

Yes Splash Landings is cheaper, but I personally adore Alton Towers hotel as the garden is beautiful, the theming in general is really nice and it is just a very nice place to be! :D

I have only stayed in SL but during my 2 night stay, I spent one night in one hotel, one in the other and the atmosphere is so much better in SL. I have a bright personality and like bright colours so I liked SL but I found ATH to be quite dull and monotone, a bit like my history teacher...

not that it makes too much difference except that splash landings is slightly cheaper - either way, only a few minutes walk and you can be wherever you want in either hotel as they're joined :P

Stayed in both. But I prefer Splash Landings. They're both great hotels, but since SL has a waterpark, I think it's better, and more fun.

Also, not that there's much difference but I'm sure SL is closer to the monorail ;)

I personally haven't stayed in either, so this is interesting for me!

I've only stayed in the ATH and we're going again in April so I'm wondering which one people prefer. The ATH is more magical for me and is what Alton Towers is all about.

I have visited both hotels however only stayed over night in the ATH. I personally think the ATH is my fave but both are still really nice.

Both are really nice hotels and I think Splash Landings is more exciting for families and provides a more fun and wacky environment. However, the Alton Towers Hotel could be passed off as a really nice hotel in London, it has a more organised atmosphere and a beautiful set of theming with an excellent layout. Both are good, but for their own resons.

Splash Landings Vs Alton Towers Hotel

Having only stayed in ATH I can't really draw any comparison.

I'm looking at prices for the opening weekend and leaning towards Splash Landings purely because it's cheaper so will be able to compare properly then.

Voted ATH.

Had this been the years 2003 to 2005, I would have voted Splash Landings. Now? No way. Utter tripe.

Luckily the ATH hasn't lost the bulk of its charm just yet, although under the current management it's certainly going that way, so for that reason it gets my vote.

I voted for Splash landings as I have 2 kids haha!

The only thing my kids like more about ATH is the naughty chair for grown ups! Other than that they enjoy the gaudy colours and atmosphere of SLH much more!

Happy kids = Happy Mum.

AT hotel for me, I've stayed in both.
SL is just to hot and full of little kids running around (which is fine if you have kids) AT is that little bit more adult friendly!
However, food wise SL is far better than AT from breakfast and dinner (the secret garden is awful quality, I think that it what it's secret is!)

I've stayed in both. The atmosphere is better in splash but you don't get much sleep due kids running in the corridors and slamming doors.

I voted for Splash Landings. The water park is what makes it special for me, and is great for families! :)
