We stayed just for the one night on the 21st March as we were attending a Wedding Anniversary at a Hotel down the road. Loved the quirky Building, spotlessly clean, nicely laid out. The staff were all very pleasant and professional. Hats off to the Managers......who were hands on and nothing was too much trouble. As we did not eat... More

Me and my husband enjoyed fish & chips and Cajun burger. Excellent homemade food. Small fish & chips is a very generous portion. Staff were friendly and attentive. My husband says best pint of thwaites in the area. Highly recommend.

Great place to stay, not too far from M6 motorway. Very friendly staff, super food and comfortable bedroom. Nice to stay in a hotel that has atmosphere and the bar when we stayed was really busy, everyone seemed to be having a great time. Would most definitely stay again next time in the area, worth a detour.

Many Thanks for you great review ....you've hit the nail on the head with our location being just 4 miles from junction 31 of the M6, we feel we're a much nicer stop over than a Motorway services. We hope to welcome you back to the Millstone in the near future. Kindest Regards Anson Bolton Chef Patron More

I chose to stay here for one night on the strength of the TripAdvisor review and I wasn't disappointed. It's a friendly, relaxed hotel nestled in a little village. There's nothing around it other than housing but that's ok - the restaurant is so good you don't need to go foraging. But it's hard to imagine you'd be visiting here... More

Stayed for 1 night. The suite I was given was absolutely lovely, very clean & comfortable. The menu for both dinner & breakfast offered a good choice & my meals were well presented & tasty. The manager & all his staff were polite, helpful & very friendly. Unfortunately I was taken ill during the night & had to be hospitalised... More

Set in a quiet village this hotel is a refreshing change from so many sterile and characterless chain hotels in the area - which have similar tariffs. Rooms are tastefully decorated with warm colours contrasting with Ivory paint . There are plenty of little extras to make your stay more satisfying - fresh milk instead of the usual cartons of...

Many Thanks for your great review. Character sums us up really well, as the Millstone forms part of Thwaites Inns of Character, we have 8 Inns up & down the country all have a similar character with a common thread of great food, Real Ales and Warm hospitality. Hopefully we'll see you back at the Millstone in the near future... More

We stayed here recently as a child free treat to celebrate both mine and my husbands birthdays. From arrival to departure we found all staff very friendly and helpful.
