It amazes me how many good guesthouses are within easy reach of Alton Towers. This is another example, one of the best. The owners have thought about what makes a guest house into a relaxing place to stay, rather than just a place to sleep. It was nice to stay at a guesthouse where the owners love the big rides...

Where do you start when you are writing a review of such an amazing place? At the booking stage i suppose? I emailed Alison (the owner) from the B&B website and within the hour i had a reply and she confirmed the availability matched our needs. We wanted a three night stay with a toddler - so anybody reading this... More

My partner and I stayed at the Warren for two nights and had a great experience. The Warren is situated 5 minutes drive from Alton Towers and enjoys beautiful views of Alton. Our room (double) was clean, large and decorated to a very high standard. Alison and John are fantastic hosts and gave us a very warm welcome, despite our... More

Probably one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. Alison and John run a spotlessly clean B&B with great facilities and great views over the valley. It was great to be greeted by a friendly couple who are clearly passionate about their business. Thanks guys we will see you in August kids in tow.

we have just spent a lovely two nights at The Warren, the rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. The surroundings to the b&b are beautiful, looking down into valleys. Alison and Jon made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble, also adding little special touches. Breakfast each morning was delicious with individual needs(including fussy children) catered... More

The rooms are beautifully decorated and everything you need for your stay. Alison greeted us and showed us to our room and then gave us a bottle of cold bucks fizz to celebrate, and gave neil...

Wonderful place. Everything you could want for a special get away. Rooms are cosy and delightfully decorated. Hosts are really friendly and make you feel right at home. There are lots of special touches that really make it a difference and the views from the bedroom and patio are sublime. We will not be staying anywhere else when we visit... More

After our wedding we travelled up through sun and showers to get to The Warren, for a rest and Alton Towers the next day. Alison gave us the warmest welcome, and spoilt us with bubbly, chocolates and cake. The room was spotlessly clean with everything you need. Breakfast was amazing, with a wide choice. We had dinner at the local... More

I have just returned from a two night Easter break at this very lovely B&B. I booked on the assumption that the wonderful reviews I had read on Trip Advisor were dependable and we were not disappointed! As a party of 3, we stayed in their twin room which was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with lovely furniture and extremely comfortable.... More
