Bob the Builder Helps To Build Drayton Manor Theme Park’s New Hotel
Everyone’s favourite builder, Bob the Builder, made a special appearance yesterday (March 23) at the award-winning Drayton Manor Theme Park. The Fat Controller also came by to make sure everyone was kept in line and took some time off from his usual role at Drayton Manor Theme Park’s Thomas Land attraction to assist with the building work of the new Drayton Manor Park Hotel.
Scheduled to open summer 2011, The Drayton Manor Park Hotel will feature themed bedrooms, including ones from the popular Thomas & Friends series. Extensive conferencing and hospitality facilities such as two resturants, a coffee shop and a crèche are also being built.
Colin Bryan, Managing Director, Drayton Manor Theme Park, comments: “The Drayton Manor Park Hotel has been long-awaited and I’m pleased that after many hurdles and a lengthy planning process building work has finally begun.
This year marks our 60th Anniversary so we like to think of the new hotel as our gift to the park to mark the occasion. We also hope that providing onsite accommodation will enable visitors to make the most of their time at the park and contribute towards our commitment to providing total family entertainment.”
