Superb Chessington stay.
We had a super 2 day break with 1 night on Chessington Safari Hotel. We met up with family so made the stay even better. My only concern was pricing for drinks.

2/10 Poor

Faulty towers but not funny
Absolutely awful. Arrived to a filthy room that smelt like sewage. Went to reception to complain where a reception member came to the room to inspect. Agreed the room had a foul smell. Went back to reception to arrange swapping room. Was informed there would be a charge to do this by the person who inspected the room. I asked for the manager who then explained that the member of staff who came to room said there was no smell to the manager. He was then called over to explain which clearly got very awkward. We were eventually moved room to a “better room” which was not themed and was very dirty and tired. The carpets were stained and the bathroom mouldy. At this point we had been here an hour and decided we had no further energy to argue but at least there was no sewage smell. Went to dinner which was poor quality food And also very dirty. All in all we expected more and wished we had stayed in the premier inn next door. Will not return.

6/10 Good

I stayed at the Azteca Hotel, unfortunately for business rather than a family trip as I imagine its quite exciting for the kids. Business wise it wasn't so great, the staff at reception wasn't very helpful. I asked for a VAT receipt which seemed an impossible ask despite me booking through with payment at checkout so I would be able to get one. I gave them my email address twice and still no receipt. One young member of staff had a terrible haircut, you could not see his eyes so it felt awkward to talk to him. My overall stay was pleasant but the hotel is obviously not really suitable for business customers. Despite having a family in the room next to me though it was very quite, pretty good nights rest
