We stayed 2 nights (30th & 31st August) at this lovely guest house as a base for Alton Towers. The owners are lovely, very welcoming and friendly and have really thought of everything. The room was exceptionally clean with some great finishing touches, we especially liked the idea of the cuddly dog that sits outside of the room when you... More

Had a nice enough stay here recently but agree with another reviewer that it needs updating somewhat ... Maybe the stables rooms are nicer but the one we stayed in, though being spotlessly clean, was very dated.... Carpet in the shower room - yuck. Also the single glazed window rattled horrendously the first night - there was a strong breeze... More

We are sorry that everything was not to this guests liking but very pleased that they appreciated our cleanliness levels. Carpets are regularly cleaned and in good condition. Windows are not double glazed but as our property is grade II star listed we are unable to alter them. Every effort is made to provide an appetising breakfast, as baked beans... More

Stayed in June 2014 as part of a trip to alton towers. Lovely house, lovely location and extremely nice and friendly hosts. Breakfast couldn't have been better! There was so much attention to detail that it made our 1 night stay very special.

This is my 3rd visit to the Malthouse and we wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Alton Towers. Melissa and her family are lovely and treated us really well for my birthday. The candle in the sausage at breakfast plus birthday card was a lovely surprise. Thank you

Just back from 2 nights at the Malthouse. Stayed when visiting Alton Towers with my husband and two kids, aged 7 and 12. A lovely warm welcome from the owners, who were just so nice and very helpful throughout the visit. The room was a good size and well equipped. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. We will definitely book again... More

It was our first time visiting Alton Towers with our two girls aged 5 and 11. Not only was the village a tranquil and beautiful place but to top it off we stayed in the best B&B in the village! We stayed at The Malthouse and was overwhelmed with the friendliness we were greeted with at such short notice!! :)... More
