You can stay in one of two hotels in Alton Towers. Read on to discover which one you'll choose... Read more
Pick the Alton Towers Hotel or book rooms at Splash Landings Hotel - either way you'll get priority access to the park (an hour before non-hotel guests), free parking, plus evening entertainment at the hotel and easy access to the Spa, Waterpark and Extraordinary Golf - a crazy golf course designed around the theme park.
The two resort hotels are very different. Alton Towers Hotel is perfect for little explorers and adventurers, with its theme of earth and space voyages, while Splash Landings Hotel features a Caribbean theme and overlooks the Waterpark. Guests of either hotel can also eat and drink in any of the resort's restaurants and bars.
It's a 15-minute walk or a short monorail ride from the hotels to the theme park. While the park opens from March to November, some rides and attractions are open for the Christmas season.
The hotels at Alton Towers can be very expensive, especially during school holidays. Visit during term time for cheaper rates.
As well as the two resort hotels, there are a number of independent hotels in the area surrounding the Alton Towers resort, from budget hotels and guesthouses to luxury hotels encircled by acres of lovely English countryside (and a few golf courses too). The nearest city is Stoke-on-Trent, which is half an hour away; there you'll find an even larger selection of hotels and fast access to the M6 motorway.
