Alton Towers Hotel or Enchanted Village Lodges?
I am about to book a 2 night stay at Alton Towers at June for my family of 5 and I can’t decide which one to book. The price is about the same on both hotels, Alton Towers hotel is 20 pounds cheaper for Explorer family room.
Hello and welcome
I would personally go for the Enchanted Village. While it might be a bit further out of the way than the rest of the resort I think it has a certain charm that you don't get from the hotels.
I stayed in the EV for the first time last July and loved it. The Crooked Spoon is a lovely restaurant although depending how busy it is you can expect to wait a while to place your order (you don't have to eat in the Crooked Spoon if you stay in the Enchanted Village, you do have the options of Secret Garden, Flambo's or Emperors Grill)
That being said, if you've never stayed on resort before then the Alton Towers Hotel would be my choice. The whole hotel has a quirkiness that you won't find anywhere else and I was blown away when I stayed there for the first time.
Having stayed in all three of the accommodation choices at the resort I prefer the Enchanted Village but I would look at the Alton Towers Hotel if you've never stayed there before.
Hope that helps
