Good, clean and staff very obliging, breakfast good. Idea location to Alton Towers and there were a couple of local pubs for food upto 9:30 as there is no evening meals at night, but no prob as pubs just a stones through away. Overall very good.

Exceptionally professional B&B and so close to alton towers thus avoiding any traffic issues. Also really close to the peak district so we could squeeze in walking as well as roller coasters highly recommended

tour of the facilities. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't have done more to make our stay any better. The family room was spacious and well equipped and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was well organised and plenty of options for us and the children. would definitely recommend and return! 10/10

We found the Laurels a great location for a weekend break to Alton Towers. The only problem we had was it was too hot during the night on our first night. And the lock to the room was difficult to lock. Breakfast was delicious and friendly service.

It's good to know you liked our proximity to Alton Towers and your breakfast :-) I'm sorry your room was a bit too warm. At this time of year I put the heating on in our guests' rooms, well before they arrive, to ensure they're nice and snug on arrival. It's seems I may have overdone things a bit :-(... More

We stayed here having read mostly positive reviews on trip advisor. We were visiting alton towers and used public transport to get there. The owners were very friendly and considerate, giving us a call to confirm our arrival time. We stayed in one of the family rooms as they were full at the time of our booking. The room was... More

Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed staying at The Laurels. Although one or two of our rooms are a little snug they are still very comfortable, as you say. It would be great to see you again. Just give us a ring or book direct on our website More
