I was originally booked into a different hotel however they had overbooked, I was recommended to stay here by them. As a single lady that travels on my own I only usually stay in large hotels and not B&B's, I have to say staying here that I had no security or safety worries at all. Check in was easy and... More

We stumbled across this B&B and although we hadn't booked was very glad we stopped to ask. I was a bit dubious at first as we went through a door from the car park and straight up some narrow stairs. There was no need to be though as the room was a reasonable size and very comfortable. There wasn't any... More

Stopping here while working in Burton, the room is clean and tidy I leave before breakfast but given a packed lunch to take to work, each day the sandwich (4 rounds of bread) has a different filling, there is a snack of some description plus a bag of crisps and cake or yoghurt more than enough to keep a working...

I recently attended a funeral at Bretby Crematorium, followed by a buffet at the Keepers Cottage Lodge, which was recommended by the Co-op Funeral Service in Burton. I can only say this was one of the poorest buffets I have experienced for the amount of food on offer, with very little variety; and the extortionate price that was charged. What... More

I recently attended a family funeral wake here and the staff were very attentive. Nothing seemed to be too much effort and the food provided was fresh and plenty. The main lady (Melanie) was most helpful and I would recommend them, especially as so close to the crematorium
