Even with good reviews, bed and breakfast hotels can be something of a lottery. In keeping with that analogy, I have to say that our single night in the Edgecote was like winning the lottery. After a an exhausting day of family drama and travel, it was such a pleasure to be welcomed into the calm of this lovely house... More

This our third visit to this lovely establishment. As always a warm welcome is guaranteed from Sue and Christine. Our room was well furnished, the bed was extremely comfortable. Every need was catered for, from tea/coffee to shower gel/body lotion etc. So much thought is put into what a guest might need. The breakfast was delicious with plenty choice. Can't... More

I booked a weekend at the Edgecote to attend a friends wedding in the area. From the easy-peasy online booking and payment, to us checking out - everything was faultless. Susan was a very welcoming host, and had changed/upgraded our room for the weekend so that we would be warm and cosy in the chilly weather. The decor of the... More

No other b&b or 5 star hotel can rival Sue's lovely little hotel at Burton on Trent. Personalised service, quiet and warm atmosphere, clean rooms, friendly people, absolutely delicious and hearty breakfast (pancakes!)... Sue has put in all her effort to make this hotel the best you can find!

What a great last minute find by my wife for a 3 day business trip. The room (No. 3) was lovely, with a great window seat, was spotlessly clean and I thought great value. Breakfast was superb with a wide menu choice. Plenty of off-road parking, which is always a bonus, great that you can leave your car there and... More

My husband and I stayed in several hotels Burton upon Trent in February and this was by far the best. In fact so much so that we stayed at The Edgecote twice. It's a little way out of town but the views are lovely - and it's very quiet especially at the back. If ever I need to stay in... More

We had the pleasure of spending 3nights there last week. we were upgraded to a lovely large, comfortable room at the back of the hotel, which was very quiet. Excellent breakfasts cooked by Sue and served by Christine. Lots of choices for breakfast. A very pleasant 3 nights, couldn't fault it, Carol and Jim Warren.
