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

Family running the B&B were fantastic, couldn't have been any nicer, especially the first night when we didn't arrive late due to traffic. Lovely rooms, great breakfast and location is perfect for an Alton Towers trip. If we go to Alton Towers again, would definitely try to stay here.

We have stayed here before, and have just returned from a 2 night stay due to us visiting Alton Towers. The weather was kind to us, but Melissa and 'crew' were even better. As usual, lovely accomodation, lovely people and gorgeous breakfasts (all tastes catered for). We wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. Thanks again guys.

Hopefully it won't be too long before this friendly gang comes back to see us. Knowing that they don't plan to stay anywhere else in the area is great, just what we want to hear. The weather may have been good during their stay but we're sure the conditions for their drive home were pretty awful. Obviously they made it... More

Lovely location, lovely rooms, lovely owners. We stayed in the annexe, the stables, with our son and his grandma and had a fabulous time. The rooms are big and bright (1 of which had a four poster bed) and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is just the best you can get, cooked to order. Alton towers is a 5 minute drive and... More
