Myself and my girlfriend had an amazing time at the Alton Towers theme park for a few days last July (2014), the Malthouse is perfectly positioned, easily accessible and really just has a nice overall feel to the accommodation! Breakfast is absolutely lovely, all cooked to order! The owners are absolutely lovely, before we left we had a good chat... More

Me & my brother have been coming here for the past 7 years as a base for the theme park. And every year it gets better & better, we couldn't ask for me more, perfect hosts, hospitality, food, comfortable beds & you can't fault the location either, I'll always look forward to coming here because I know we always get...

We can't believe where the time goes. It only seems like yesterday that these two lovely brothers started staying with us but yes they are right it must be about seven years! It is always a pleasure to see these guests. They arrive, settle in, enjoy a meal out at one of the local pubs, eat a good breakfast with... More

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.

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

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.
