Stayed in the seperate 1 bedroom cottage for an alton towers break - the cottage was excellent value for money, very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. It felt very private, the bedroom overlooks the fields at the back and we both slept very well. Breakfast was lovely, served in the main house. Parking no problem and a good location -... More

Booked this on the strength of its trip advisor rating and reviews so expectations were high, but to our eye's this is a fairly bog standard b&b with a host doing little more than going through the motions. We'd stayed at the chained oak near alton towers the night before and the two experiences were like chalk and cheese. Lilacs... More

The Lilacs is a major credit to our host. We were welcomed in the car park as we arrived and shown straight up to our room, which was very clean with a spacious bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast was perfect everyday - cereal and yoghurt to start, then a cooked breakfast, with a choice of toast and eggs all the way... More

I would stay here again when going back to Alton Towers. It's a great location. The welcome was a lovely one from Tina. The room was lovely with personal extras such as mints, hot chocolate, pen,note pad and a pack of cards. The breakfast was amazing. xx

This is a lovely B&B base in the peaks. The self catering cottage is bijou, compact and well equipped. Ideal for a couple. Eventually it will be in need of a little refreshing/updating but that does not detract from it's cleverly equipped functionality making the most of a small spaces with good storage - "cute and dinky". By far the... More

We had only planned to stay a single night but would happily stay for longer on future visits to Staffordshire. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. Our room was clean comfortable & well appointed with tea/coffee making facilities & flat screen TV. The en-suite bathroom was surprisingly large, modern & supremely clean & well equipped. There...

B+B Rooms available, but we were offered the 2-storey cottage, which was absolutely superb. Good sized kitchen, nice lounge area with double sofa bed. Patio doors leading to driveway and superb view of open countryside. Upstairs leads to a lovely double bedroom and a good sized bathroom, with toilet and bath/shower. Tina (the owner) is such a lovely lady. Very... More

Had the room at the back- very cosy with a large modern bathroom. Very clean with tea coffee etc and chocolate biscuits. Full English breakfast plus cereals,juices,fruit toast etc which was delicious and filling. Close to all attractions -obviously a car would be a necessity -Ilam being a favourite.Bed very comfortable-2 good night's sleep.
