We stayed for a night in this super funky, friendly, and clean B&B before we went to Alton Towers the next day. Ideally located just 1 mile away from the park, and also right in the middle of Alton for easy access to the local pubs / shops etc. Lynn, the owner, was very friendly and helpful, giving us all...

If you are looking for accomodation near Alton Towers theme park this is the place to stay. Each room has a unique theme which makes it different from the chain hotels and has everything you require for your stay. The rooms are lovely and clean and we received great hospitality from the owner. A great breakfast is provided which will... More

Bank house is a lovely little b&b situated in the centre of a small village right next to alton towers. I booked a room for me and my girlfriend for her birthday so we could visit alton towers the day after. This was an ideal location as it is literally 10 minutes from the theme park. We had the Marilyn... More

No matter what I write here I will not do this place justice. Ideally placed for the nearby Alton Towers which we were visiting but we would definitely return if not visiting the towers. It is a beautiful area in its own right and this is a little gem. Family run the staff could not have been more courteous or... More

Bank House is set in the lovely historic village of Alton, which is great to visit the Towers, but also worth a stay in it's own right. The room was spotless, the beds comfortable and the staff were great - very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was just right. I would stay here again without a doubt.

A brilliant place to stay for alton towers. Breakfast was spot on. Room was lovely, we stayed in the Marilyn Monroe room and staff were very accommodating for our one year old. Would stay again if visiting that area

Stayed one night here before taking our daughter to Alton Towers for her birthday. Check in was friendly and very helpful (a fab pub was recommended for dinner). We stayed in the Flinstones room, which was well equipped (so handy to have a mini fridge provided when you are travelling with kids). The lovely owners had put up birthday banners... More

I'd highly recommend this B&B to anyone, and is an ideal base to enjoy Alton Towers 5mins away! Wonderful host with great breakfast options in the mornings. Will definitely go back if we visit the area again.

We stayed for one night in August in the Marilyn Monroe room. Our initial welcome was a little indifferent whilst completing the paperwork however when we were shown to our room we felt a lot more comfortable and welcomed. The room was fantastic. There were 2 comfortable sofas, a table and a great 4 poster bed. The bathroom was fab.... More

Must have been either a very stressful or grouchy day for me if I was indifferent at reception because usually I overkill with kindness. Glad you liked the Marilyn room perhaps you could try The Boudoir if you make a return visit because that has a whirlpool bath too. Maurice is a love I agree he always makes the guests... More
