It was initially stated that the Hotel would reopen yesterday, August 3. However, due to strict inspections to ensure the necessary “remediation works” were undertaken, the Resort’s reopening date was pushed back to August 4.

The Resort told BerkshireLive that Guests due to stay in the affected building had been offered a full refund or complimentary alternative accommodation.

The rest of LEGOLAND Windsor Resort remains open after the incident.
