We stayed here last night and we were very disappointed. The whole place is very dated and the room (ONE) was very small, and the en-suite smaller. The mattress was hard and my back ached all day the day after. We had to open the window as the room was warm and stuffy but then the very busy A 52... More

A pleasant homely B&B just outside Ashbourne. Well placed for the town or onward visits to the "Potteries" and outlets of Stoke on Trent. The bedroom was nicely furnished and the breakfast was very enjoyable. It was good value for money and we would happily return , the next time we are in need of some more pottery . The... More

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.

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

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.
