  • A theme park that really caters for the younger generation. Great day out, even if a little pricey. Clean, tidy, safe.  more »

  • Really disappointed, only thing good is the hotel, as long as you dont eat in the temple bar! The whole reason we went was for the children to see the safari animals but due to my little girl being 0....  more »

  • We've just come back from Chessington after spending two days there with some friends and there children and we've all had such a fantastic time. The hotel is so nice lovely and clean, rooms very nice. All the hotel is lovely and clean and smells nice when you walk in. Park was not too busy which was great to get on the rides. Food was really nice too. The only thing I would say is that the prices for the buffet was expensive for adults and children. There is no way my little 6 year old ate £10.00 worth of food. Adults a bit pricey too. But overall it is a lovely place for a family and friends weekend. Definitely be coming back sometime.
  • I love Chessington, we go there often. If you look for dates marked 'Splash and Stay' you can stay in the hotel for really cheap. Be careful though because some dates are when the park isn't open. If you can find a date where the park is open the day you stay, you can use the swimming pool the next morning, which makes for a nice 1.5 day trip. The rooms are high standard. We always stay in ones which have the seperate sleeping area for my son, which makes a lot of difference.
  • The check in was a little wait and felt more could be done to help. Staff were great but it just felt they had many jobs to do so we’re not available for some tasks as needed. Rooms were brilliant and clean. I feel like visitors of the hotel that are also going into the park should get something more than a a4 print of the tickets especially when staying more than one day. The photo pass was also an annoyance to even use let alone get a hold of. I had to wait until 12 lunch time to even get the bands and then at almost every ride they had to print receipts as their scanner was not working or some other issue. I feel the experience could be streamlined and made more user friendly. As an example guests could scan their band and punch their number in at the ride exit or even at the hotel after they finish the day.
  • Nice place for a family hangout for a day. The rides are good. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed thoroughly, so did my wife. Annual pass works out well as you get 20% discounts on foods as well. They have big parking space. Parking ticket can be bought online in advance or at the counter. Planning to visit again soon as we couldn’t cover all the rides.
  • If youre a day visitor with no Merlin pass, you'll need a 4x4 to park here as the potholes are bigger than an open pit mine. Don't expect any decent standard of food as this is strictly burger van standards at restaurant prices! Not all negative as the rides are good (it's worth planning your visit and getting Fast Track tickets if you can) and the zoo is a good day out in itself. In previous years we've stayed at the on site hotel, which was really good. Worth booking your evening meal in the restaurant on arrival as it gets full up really quick and the overflow Aztec buffet restaurant can be a bit of a mosh pit!
