I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights as we were visiting Alton Towers. The hotel is in a lovely location, very picturesque, was a shame that the weather was poor as I imagine it looks gorgeous in the sun. The room was a decent size, clean, comfy and everything we needed. Its a little out of the way... More

We were placed in a very spacious room which had a double bed & bunk beds. Breakfast in the morning was... More

We stayed here for one night in November. The room was large, comfortable and clean and staff couldn't have been more helpful. As soon as we mentioned we were thinking about going walking the following day, we were told there'd be a selection of ideas ready for us in the morning. At breakfast, we had several pages of walk suggestions... More

I'd like to start by thanking Nina and James for their hospitality. Forget the extra mile, these guys will go to the ends of the earth to ensure their guests stay is the best it could possibly be. This was an evening away for my girlfriends birthday. We had the four poster room which was absoloutely beautiful. On arrival we... More

We (family of 2 adults & 2 teenage children) had a wonderful two nights here. Nina was incredibly helpful, the breakfasts were lovely & the beds so comfortable after London that we fell asleep fully clothed. Would love to go back again.
