The highlight of our stay was undoubtedly the warm and helpful proprietor who could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. She even printed off our boarding passes for us. The room was comfortable and clean but very small. Good supply of tea and coffee making products. The bathroom would benefit from modernising. The access stairs to the rooms... More

We had a lovely time. The host was very friendly and even upgraded our room for free when we arrived. We therefore ended up staying in the self-catering cottage which was ideal for us (couple and baby). Breakfast was excellent- freshly made and good choice. Cot and high chair was provided. Excellent location for outings around Ashbourne. Only slight disadvantage... More

Clean and pleasant room, slept well. Breakfast was good. Enjoyable stay and value for money. Good option for a stay close to Alton Towers. Owner was friendly and welcoming, room was large enough for us. We would consider returning.

I love bnbs but was a bit disappointed with this one. The lady was very nice but it just needs tlc. Eg a cupboard door fell off we screwed it back on, the shower had a bit of mould in it which could have been easily scrubbed off and there was no indicator for the shower re hot cold but... More

Although a small B & B the accommodation was good and the lady owner was very friendly. Had a an enjoyable stay with delicious breakfasts, our en-suite was larger than we expected, plus lovely rural views from our window. We would like to stay again when visiting this area.

My partner booked us at The Lilacs for my birthday. The owner is a very lovely and welcoming lady. We stayed in a very nice double room with a huge bathroom with modern facilities (bath plus a separate shower) and plenty of fresh towels. We didn't have much breakfast as we were full from the night before (birthday meal) but... More

Stayed just the one night whilst visiting friends. Couldn't ask for a more accommodating friendly lady owner. Just a small b and b but with everything you could want. Exceptionally clean.and very cosy. Breakfast was delicious and served with a smile ! Brilliant value for money. Would'nt want to stay anywhere else now i"ve discovered this little gem.

We stayed here for a long weekend to visit Alton Towers for a couple of days. The accommodation was wonderful, we stayed in the 'Cottage'. The breakfast we brilliant too - cooked breakfast, cereal or a combination of the two. Tina also made us a packed lunch for a small fee (which was much cheaper than Alton Towers food!). I... More

I stayed here with my husband on our trip to Alton towers. I have no words to explain my pleasant, awesome experience there. To start with I've arrived late at hotel due to traffic but received a warm welcome. The room was very clean, just like my own room in our house. Had a very good night's sleep and breakfast... More

We stayed in Ashbourne for my niece's wedding at nearby Norbury Church. The Lilacs is a very short drive to the west of Ashbourne right on the A52 and has off road parking to the rear of the house. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and tidy - breakfasts were excellent too. Tina is a lovely, friendy landlady and nothing is... More
