Absolutely do not book into here, our room was filthy, dust everywhere, bedside table. Had sticky cup/glass marks, carpet not hoovered, a strong smell of damp, we went for a drink, returned and packed and left within 1/2 hour. It needs a total overhaul and new owners, the couple in there now must be in their 90s and have no... More

Now, i'll start by saying I have a 3 yr old and as majority of parents out there with toddlers will attest, you treat any (rare) weekend away with the wife with utmost respect - lots of lie ins, and lots of misbehaviour! With a few weeks left to attend a wedding in Stafford (my fault for not researching earlier),... More

It would appear That my review 8/11/12 is for the wrong Bed and Breakfast, I stayed at the Old School in Haughton, near Stafford! I have not stayed here so please ignore my previous review folks, apologies to the owners.

Nice location and lovely people. Bit of a time warp but that's something I like. Heard the church bells next door which some people would find disruptive but I really loved. My bedroom was large and excellent value for £30. Breakfast was ample and nice on an old school table. I'd only pick fault with the orange juice which was... More

I have stayed at the Old School twice now and would not think of going anywhere else when in the area. Val is a great host and ensures that guests are really made welcome. The food is great and all organic. If you like coffee then you will love the Nespresso machine in the dining room and Val has my... More

I`m easily pleased but not here. I felt like I was sleeping in a morgue, cold with that permanent chill in the air, The owners have no sense of customer satisfaction and breakfast was the worst I have ever picked at. I had arranged to stay here for 3 nights, but didn`t go back after the first. Avoid.

In need of substantial refurbishment. Tired old fashioned decorations, depressing. Regrettably nothing to recommend any aspect.
