Legoland given go-ahead for castle-themed hotel extension

A round of applause rang out yesterday (Wednesday) after Legoland was granted permission to build a 61-room hotel extension.

The application was unanimously approved by the Windsor Urban Development Panel, much to the delight of the Legoland staff who attended the meeting at Windsor Guildhall.

The successful application is for a three-storey castle-themed extension to the existing Legoland Hotel.

The total net addition of bedrooms works out at 59 rooms as two will be lost from the existing hotel.

It will be separate to the existing hotel and connected by a bridge walkway.

Speaking at the meeting, Ingrid Fernandes, strategic development director at the theme park, spoke in favour of the application and said the plan incorporates a ‘site-wide travel plan’.

She said the hotel extension would result in a reduction of traffic at peak times as more people staying on site would ‘push’ traffic to off-peak times.
