Inside the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel in Billund

Posted by ,

While we were in Billund for the fan media days last month we were given a quick tour of the new LEGOLAND Castle hotel that opened earlier this year.

It consists of two huge castle-like buildings and is situated just to the north of the existing LEGOLAND Hotel, so is ideally placed for accessing the park.

The castle theme continues inside in every room, including the bedrooms, where you can choose between a Dragon Knight's room, a wizard's room or a princess' room which all sleep up to two adults and three kids.

It's not cheap to stay there by any means: prices start at around $500 a night, but that does include breakfast and entry to the park for two days, which is not cheap either. However, I suspect it would be worth every penny if you have LEGO-loving kids with you.

I took some photos of the interior which you can view after the break. Unfortunately it was pouring with rain while we were there so I didn't take many outside.

In regards to pricing, if you buy a LEGOLAND season pass for Billund you get to book the hotel for 25% less.. although you don't then get park tickets - but you have your season pass of course.

If you're a family would need to factor in getting season passes for everyone else or normal tickets on top - but depending on how long you're staying for it can cost less overall. Especially as the tickets you get in the normal hotel booking are for 2 consecutive days, so if you want more than 2 days or to take them non-consecutively - going down the season pass route could be cheaper and more flexible. Note season pass also gives other benefits such as children half-price into LEGOhouse etc.. so you need to do the maths

My word that's quite dear. We were in LEGOLAND Germany a couple of years ago with the kids and I remember it being quite expensive too, yet nothing like those numbers. The Castle hotel there looked almost identical from what I recall.

So, here is a true Castle hotel, yet no true Castle sets on shelves...

Oh wow, that's cool. I've never even visited a Lego hotel, but this is making me nostalgic. In particular, I like that they have a brick-built lady knight, in the models by the fireplace, as well as the typical male one; it's a nice touch ^^

The exterior, though... it was hitting me with all kinds of nostalgia, and I suddenly realised why. Does anyone remember those old member profile pages on the lego club website, back in... I dunno, must have been the early 2000s? They were themed around a castle that looked almost exactly like that one.

Heh, that feels like forever ago, yet I still remember it xD

Looks good. Stayed in the Legoland hotel last year, not cheap but agree with shropshire about season tickets, would have worked out cheaper overall for us, as we also did the Lego house.i also think it is worth paying a bit more as you pretty much got straight on every ride at the park with no queues, unlike Windsor where you spend all day in a queue.

It's a few years since I stayed in the Windsor Legoland Hotel but it looks very similar design and decor wise.

When do we get a Creator Expert hotel for AFOLs? :D

Our 4 night stay at Lalandia was about the same price. You get a bungalow And we had unlimited access to the water park (very similar to Centre Parks) as well.... Lego minting it again....

Out of curiosity, how many times per year do you visit Billund?

Too expensive. We went to Lepinland Sleeping House "medieval soldiers" for a fraction of the cost. The door didn't fit the door frame, but other than that kids couldn't tell the difference.

My boys loved the Legoland California Castle Hotel when we stayed there but the downfall for me as a parent was the walls were paper thin and we had noisy neighbors or could hear foot traffic from the hallway at all hours.

I guess the rooms don't have A/C?
That's one thing I hate about the Billund LEGOLAND hotel.

By in United States,

Awww... you mean it ISN'T built entirely out of LEGO bricks?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sorry, but I can't see how these rooms are worth anywhere near 500.00/a night. That's ridiculous. We're hoping to visit LEGOLAND Florida in the next couple of years, but won't be staying at the park hotels if the price is anywhere close to that. I'd rather spend the money on bricks that my kids and I can treasure forever.

@elangab, that's hilarious!

@RonnyN Only Americans would complain about that. In northern Europe we just open a window, because we prefer fresh air over recycled air and it's more environmentally friendly (and for the average Billund climate it's very much sufficient).

As others have pointed out, I find it rather baffling that they build a Castle hotel without an active castle line. Surely this means there is a general interest in the theme?

500 $ a night? That's ridiculous. Lego clearly has lost the connection to normal people. That the "castle" is made to look like years old themes, which kids nowadays don't know, makes it not better. I more and more despise this company. Even if I like their product, most of what this firm did in recent years makes me angry.

On the topic of the fan media days, when will you be covering all the answers you got from the designer interviews?

To misquote David Byrne:
"This is the Legoland Castle Hotel, just outside Billund. Its cool. Its a multipurpose shape: a box!"

Shame they had the imagination to theme their hotel on a castle but not the creativity to choose anything but the blandest rectangular exterior.

Nice to offer it up for those that will enjoy it. I prefer a different theme in my hotels: my BOGO Legoland tickets + super fancy hotel literally on the beach in Carlsbad came in at less $.

@Guyon2002, many of them covered material that's still under embargo so we'll publish them when we can.

By in Spain,

It is nice. But the Castle theme in the hotel is about the last Castle theme..but we the AFOL prefer the classic Lego Castle, with Black Falcons, Black Knights, Crussanders and Robin, don't you?

If it had that theme, I will go there!!

$500 a night??? I better get to take home one of the brick built models in my room for that price!

By in Hungary,

Ridiculous pricing! $500 a night? What?!
And to pay for a two-day ticket is the worst deal, at least in Legoland Deutschland. An annual pass is cheaper than two daily tickets.
If you are planning to stay at least two days in the Legoland park, an annual pass is the best choice. (especially if you are planning to return within 365 days, so you can plan two summer holidays in two consecutive years!) This is valid for the German Legoland, however I see in Billund you can get only season pass, which is valid only for the specific season (eg. April to November)
During winter time Legoland.de used to run online annual pass promos: 4 annual passes for the price of 3.
In 2014 it was €231 for four annual passes, and we booked a house for €70 per night in Günzburg. So 4 days visit to the Günzburg Legoland park for our family was a little bit more than €500. I know it was in 2014, add maxumum 10-20% for todays pricing.
It seems that Billund is the most expensive Legoland park.

As LEGO isn’t running the actual parks anymore, I assume they don’t directly control the hotels either @huw?

It seems somewhat similar to the assorted “styled” hotels adjacent to Disneyland Paris - great for taking it all out across 48 hours, and then you spend the rest of the vacation somewhere more normal

Well, it's a lot of stickers.

Yes please.

I wonder if kids recognize the Castle theme iconography, since it hasn't had a run in a while.

Now that Nexo is over, I wouldn't be surprised if a classic Castle theme update is in the works.

What part of the town did they take down this time to make room for this?
At this rate, in a few years there won't be any Billund left :-D

By in United States,

Wow, that looks really bad. It looks like someone slapped a bunch of Lego Castle themed stickers on a generic Holiday Inn Express.

We stayed at Legoland Windsor last year, in the main hotel not the Castle, but from these pictures it looks like it has the same lighting problem - everywhere; the rooms, lobby, corridor, restaurant is dark.

And of course it has AC (it even says so on booking site), it's just not individual in each room, so you can not set it to some freezing temp.
