Used this hotel as a base for Alton Towers as well as a half way stop coming back from London.. The pictures of the hotel on there website look amazing & believe me the downstairs area is decent however as soon as you make your way to the bedrooms it all changes. No lifts so your stuck lumping luggage upstairs... More

My Mother-in-law booked to stay at the Great National Newcastle-Under-Lyme Hotel and due to medical reasons, they had to cancel their stay. When she was charged for the room after being told that she would not be, she was told to speak to Emma Rose. My Mother-in-law has been trying to get into contact with this person for over a...

My friend and I booked a room at this hotel last minute as part of an impromptu trip to Alton Towers. We contacted the hotel prior to our booking to explain that we would be travelling some distance and so we would require a late check in. The gentleman on the phone was very polite and said that this wouldn't... More

Stayed here for fish o mania, I honestly don't know what everyone is moaning about, yes it's a bit spit and sawdust but for what we paid we had a convenient location, a comfy bed (with clean bedding), a working toilet, a window that opened to allow a free flow of fresh air, hot and cold water, lovely bath and...

A one night stay, booked by a friend. Having read the reviews, I wouldn't have chosen this as a place to stay but it actually wasn't that bad. The reception and bar area are pleasantly decorated although would benefit from a thorough clean and vacuum. The single room I had was adequate - the carpet was stained but the bedding... More

I am not going to complain about the hotel, the rooms were fine, the beds not that comfortable, the bathroom could have done with a clean, the stains on the carpets ( unsure what they were) for £55 per night to include breakfast isn't bad value - so you get what you pay for. What i am fuming about is... More

We stayed in this hotel as we needed somewhere close to Alton Towers and we got a room here for under £80 with breakfast. It's really easy to find off of the motorway and is quite a nice building although could do with a wee lick of paint I'd say. When we arrived, there was no-one behind reception. We waited... More

This hotel is fine if you are needing somewhere local to stay for a couple of nights as we did and we got a good deal with lastminute.com. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and our first impression was very good as the reception area is very modern and posh. This first impression dwindled a little however, when... More

We stayed on the 4/06/15, having booked the hotel as a stopover before visiting Alton Towers the following day. We were under the impression that the hotel had been a Ramada and was currently under the management of Great National. However the hotel, I have since been informed by Great National was dismissed from it's cache of property a few... More
