From the warm welcome to the goodbye. We just love this place. A long time ago I stayed in the main building, recently we have always stayed in the "stables" . The rooms are clean and warm with big walk in showers. I always sleep well. The buildings themselves are lovely. The breakfast is always great (with a full plate),... More

We stayed at the Malthouse last April half term and we are so happy with the service. Lovely place to stay after a tiring day out at Alton Towers Resort. It's our family's first time to experience a B & B and we are so impressed by the warm welcome from the owners. Food is served as requested and the... More

Where does the time go! When we calculated how long these folks have been coming to stay with us it must be ten years, we can't believe it!. A really lovely review from a super mum. This lady pulls out all the stops to make sure that her teenagers have a great time. They all love going to Alton Towers... More

What a wonderful place. This was my first time at a Bed and Breakfast. The owners were lovely warm and welcoming. We have a very loud two year old and they made her feel as if she was home. I will most definitely be back to the area and stay at the same place. The rooms were clean the food... More

We are glad that these newbies to B&B enjoyed their stay with us. Hope they stay in a B&B again. A lovely family with a really pretty little girl who had a lovely smile and for a little one was not noisy at all. We would be delighted to see this family again if they visit the area. Thanks to...

Really impressed with The Malthouse. Owners all really friendly, happy to give evening milk for my toddler. Rooms are nice and really clean. Breakfast fantastic, didn't need to eat again until the evening. Close to theme park and really pretty situation. Would highly recommend

we stayed here and the accommodation was nice but the welcome not. We had travelled from Scotland and had hit traffic problems. We had agreed to be there by 9pm but didn't arrive until before 10pm. After phone calls from the car to the B&B the woman made it clear this was not acceptable. We didn't realise at the time... More

Firstly we are sorry that this family felt that the welcome they received from us was strange. We pride ourselves on offering all our guests a very warm welcome so their comments are disappointing. Secondly we are glad that they liked our accommodation and enjoyed their breakfast. Occasionally guests will experience problems during their journey and will contact us to... More

This is the third time I have stayed here in 4 years and I would love to come back again. The owners are so friendly, and welcoming you feel right at home and that nothing is a bother.

Had a lovely weekend at the Malthouse and would absolutely stay agian and recommend to anyone. The owners were so lovely and friendly and made us feel welcome. The room we stayed in was cosy, clean and spacious and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. Could not fault a single thing and can't praise it enough. Would defiantly recommend to anyone.
