Very warm welcome, made us feel like we were extended family! Really helpful advice on places to eat, clean, tidy room and comfortable beds. Great breakfast and a stones throw from Alton Towers. Perfect.

My son and I returned to bank House after staying here with the rest of our family in May. We received the same warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for Lynn, Maurice and their staff. We stayed for two nights whilst visiting the Towers for Fright Fest. Breakfast was great and our room (Punk Rock) was clean and... More

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...

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
