I hope they dont....the original hotel was and is magical but the more they build the more cheap and watered down i fear the experience will become...

Well like all businesses, they're out to make money, and if hotels are where the money is then there will be another!

I'm against the idea of a new hotel, as this *resort* would become a little bit too commercialised, at the moment it's still magical and vaguely intimate, the next hotel will spoil the feeling I fear.

A heaven and hell hotel. :D themes with angels and devils!

I think there should be another one, the two hotels are fantastic but there's hardly any availability! and the more hotels they build, the more they have to invest in the park to warrant three expensive hotels and the 'short break' resort it wants to be!

I think they sholuld stop at three and not put the third one in for a looooong time, and they should make the third a little less expensive! but as long as its quality, the experience shouldn't be watered down.

:twisted: :P

I think AT needs another hotel to help it become a resort but if another hotel is built then the need to make the park bigger by opening the part behind cred stree etc.

I also think that all the hotels they build in the futer should be in the same area because of the water park.

yes but they are nearly always full. and Tussauds will try and squeeze a little bit more money out of us so i expect another hotel is on its way.


maybe it could be cheaper then the other two giving people who dont have more money then sence the chance to stay in it and enjoy this 'magic' that is supposed to be for everyone, not just the people that are rolling in money.

Well they could make a hotel that is not near the other 2 but at another side of the park so then it gives you moe choices. But then again that is very unlikely...

I put yes because if alton had a third hotel like a casino then it will bring in more money to hopefully improve the rides that alton has.

Exactly
They should lower there prices a bit
But if people choose to stay in the Alton towers hotel then its there choice,
If i didnt live so close to Alton and i visited Towers I would stay in a local B&B,
Most are a lot cheaper.

But anyway back on topic, They just built a new hotel and both hotels aren't at full capacity are they???
The clever thing to do is wait untill they start getting a regular near full capacity in both hotels, then start building a new hotel.

I don't care to vote either way, but the one thing they really should do if a third hotel is built is to have a staff accomodation block, which the current hotels are lacking.
We think we\'ve come so far,
On all the lies we depend.
We see no consequence
This is the beginning of the end.

Two hotels is probaly enough for a theme park actually..(thinks of disneyland) maybe not!!
personally I wouldn't like another one, but they are always full, and it could bring in lots of dosh for alton to get another big coaster!!!
