We stayed for one night in August in the Marilyn Monroe room.

Very family friendly and nice hotel, it is especially a good hotel for families who want to visit Alton towers theme park, which is only one mile away from the theme park! This hotel provides a good service and a very nice morning breakfast, which is included for free with your stay!!!!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast served was second to none,... More

I loved our one-night stay at Bank House for our wedding anniversary, after a tiring but fun day at Alton Towers, which is just 5-minutes drive away. Lynn and Maurice were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with all the mod-cons. The guest house has its own small car... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us at Bank House. We trust you enjoyed your stay with us despite the noisy children, and I remember they were particularly noisy. In fact I think the dining room emptied very quickly that morning. Parents eh!! Do hope we see you again. More
