At last somewhere that accommodates a family of 5! Excellent accommodation and so close to Alton towers (5 mins drive). As soon as we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Our room (The Flinstones theme) was perfect for the 5 of us. Plus the breakfast was awesome!

We stayed in the Two tone room which had a really comfy king size bed, fluffy pillows, power shower and mini-fridge. The hotel was really close to Alton Towers and also... More

Booked 2 days at Alton Towers so needed a one night stay at a B & B. The Bank House was only about a mile away so it was ideal. The accommodation is fantastic, we stayed in the Marilyn Monroe themed room with jacuzzi bath. Had a wonderful nights sleep, the bed was so comfy. Lynn & Maurice are amazing!... More

Came with the family after a day at Go Ape and before a day at Alton Towers. Great place, very handy for the village amenities, and 2mins drive to Alton Towers.
