Legoland Billund Resort – accommodation
The accommodation at Legoland Billund Resort simply could not be faulted either in terms of the space or facilities. The modern interior was stylish in a typically sleek yet comfortable Scandianvian way and the chalet was full of luxurious finishes such as under floor heating, a spa bath, solid marble work surfaces, breakfast bar with glossy black high stools (which Toby especially enjoyed) and a white Tripp Trapp highchair for Pippa.
The sleek red sofa and large flat screen TV provided comfort and relaxation at the end of each action-packed day. The interior was bright, light and spacious and each chalet is equipped with everything one could want to cook an evening meal at home or enjoy an al fresco breakfast on the wooden deck. The tumble dryer proved very handy for drying our towels after the numerous trips to the swimming pools at the Aquadome.
We used the chalet as a base for our three night trip to Denmark which included a three day pass for all Lalandia’s services and a two day pass to Legoland. Guests are given plastic security tagged bracelets which are swiped to gain entry to Monky Tonky land, the Aquadome and Legoland. The passes also give you access to lockers in the pool, so you don't have to carry loose change in the changing areas.
Billund and the resort offered more than enough to entertain us for three days but the area has many more attractions for families including Givskud Zoo, a drive through safari type experience, and the interactive science park at Danfoss Universe. There's also the spectacular Danish West Coast with its miles of sandy beaches.
I loved the welcome we received from everyone we met in Denmark and felt incredibly at home there. The people are charming - with exceptional English - and the child-centric activities and courteous staff made the resorts a pleasure.
Billund would be the ideal place to start or end a family holiday to Denmark thanks to its close proximity to the airport, numerous attractions and guarantee that one's children will love every second of the trip. It would have been impossible to have a more child-centric family holiday. When Toby and Pippa are happy, I’m happy and this three night family break worked a treat for all four of us.
