"Our well-rehearsed emergency procedures were immediately implemented and the emergency services were called and attended the site. The Hotel was immediately evacuated and all guests and staff are safe and well.

"The health and safety of our guests is our top priority and the hotel is currently closed whilst the fire brigade’s investigation takes place. Hotel guests are being refunded or offered alternative accommodation.

"Guests have been given extra time to enjoy a selection of rides in the theme park this evening, which remains open for business as usual. The Castle Hotel (adjacent) is unaffected."
