The owners were lovely, we arrived an hour early and they happily checked us in and gave us a lovely room with a very modern bathroom. The shortbread was a lovely touch and delicious, couldn't wait to... More

Excellent place to stay beside Alton Towers, only a couple of minutes walk from the entrance. We stayed in the self catering accommodation, Swallows Nest and it was small but lovely. Kitchen with breakfast bar and living area (with sofa bed), bathroom and upstairs double bedroom. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. They also provided a z-bed for our... More

B&B was lovely with attentive customer care. It was perfectly located right next to the Alton towers entrance so parking was not an issue. Perfect for couples who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle and perfect to roll out of bed without worrying about traffic jams and parking at Alton towers. Thank you for a lovely stay....

We have just returned from a two night stay at Trough Ivy House and what a lovely stay it was. The Owners are very accommodating we arrived 8:30 pm and were able to check in with no problems. The rooms are clean and spacious and the Shortbread is delicious. The Breakfast is worth the additional cost and made to order.... More

I have just got back from a wonderful stay here. I booked two nights as a treat for my partners birthday. I chose this accommodation due to the good reviews and it being so close to Alton Towers (2 min walk). The owners are very friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home from the start. The rooms are... More

I stayed here last year with my boyfriend as we wanted somewhere to stay before going to Alton Towers. The main big plus point about the Trough Ivy House is that is is only a stones throw away from the Theme park itself, closer than the actual Alton Towers Hotel! We paid for a room that had a little living... More

The wife and i stayed here for a weekend away as we were visiting Alton Towers. We live in Uttoxeter so it would have been easier to go home but we are glad we didn't as the Trough Ivy House is an excellent place to stay. The owners Carol and Terry were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.... More
