This months 'Group Leisure' Magazine, which my family receives every month, has a short article on the new hotel at Chessington which gives us some more information on the project:
The Tussauds Group has announced that a £15million, four-star, 150-room Holiday Inn will be built adjacent to the group's Chessington World of Adventures theme park in Surrey.
The Hotel is due to open in June and will be slightly different from regular Holiday Inn hotels. Located in the centre of the theme park's planned animal land development, safari style touches will add a little fun to the theme park hotel. It will not just be the decor which will be significantly different, each of the rooms will be larger than the chain's average rooms, with a host of other additions and facilities available, including health and leisure facilities, a restaurant and bar as well as meeting and function rooms.
For groups thinking of visiting the park, the new hotel will be the ideal location for visiting the theme park. Managing director of Tussauds' Theme Parks, Bruce McKendrick said 'This is a very exciting project for the Tussauds Group underlining our strategic commitment to developing our theme park attractions as short break destinations'
