- WHERE TO STAY
- PUBLIC TRANSPORT
- CRUISE PORTS
When looking for overnight breaks to visit Legoland Windsor, there are three basic choices. For the ultimate in both convenience and attraction for the kids, the Legoland Resort or the new Legoland Castle Hotel are the places to book.
Themed rooms and evening entertainment complete the deal, with the advantage for the adults of it all being on one site, including restaurants, so food is taken care of too.
Alternatively, the more budget-friendly option is to book a money-saving package including both hotel and the Legoland attraction tickets in one deal online.
Both Superbreak and Legoland themselves offer these deals, saving quite a few pounds on buying Legoland tickets and hotel rooms separately.
If you already have an existing voucher for Legoland and wish only to book a nearby hotel, this is a further option. Hotels with easy access by public transport are listed further down this page.
Legoland Resort Hotel is the most expensive option for overnight stays for the attraction. As a guide you might pay up as much as twice the price of staying in a nearby hotel at peak season; but the 'magic' of the themed stay makes it an attractive option for many.
Note, in the early autumn and Christmas season when the park opens for a few weekends, the price gap narrows so that at certain times the resort hotels are only very marginally more expensive than nearby options - and a lot more convenient. For up to date prices see the Legoland website.
You can purchase a complete break including your Lego themed accommodation and entrance to Legoland itself, which will entitle you to receive special privileges by doing so. On occasions throughout the year Legoland stays open late purely for guests at the hotel, for example for fireworks night, or Christmas. Residents can also enter at this time thirty minutes early with entry on selected rides!
The Legoland Resort Hotel is geared up for families visiting Legoland with themed rooms, such as 'Pirate', 'Adventure' 'Kingdom' and 'Lego Friends', similar in a way to Disneyland hotels. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a telephone, hairdryer, Wi-Fi access, TV(s) with a dedicated LEGO® TV Channel, tea and coffee making facilities and Lego bricks for your children (and you!) to play with.
There are separate children's sleeping areas in nearly all rooms, sleeping up to three children. As a hotel resident, you will also receive free parking.
There is a swimming pool and a pirate-themed indoor water play area complete with slides and 'blast-em' water guns. There is also an adults-only gym. As well as the themed rooms, there are also play areas and nightly entertainment.
At the Hotel shop you can browse a range of the top Lego themes and Legoland souvenirs.
The earliest check in time is 3pm and the latest check out time 10am. Guests can arrive and leave luggage with Concierge from 9.30am. An access card will be given to gain access to the hotel and its facilities.

Another option besides the resort hotels is to book a nearby hotel, many of which are partnered through Legoland, offering deals such as second day free. These hotels are in the main very family friendly, offering children's menus, and in some cases even children's play areas.
Legoland also offer partner hotels with ticket prices included.
For visitors wishing to visit Legoland with no car, there are a few hotels that have easy access to the Legoland shuttle or the Greenline bus, which stops at Legoland itself.
