We stayed here overnight on Sat 14th June, 2014. Val is a kind and thoughtful host and made us feel very welcome. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the dining room, available all the time. We had the room with a bath which is just across the landing from the room. It was an... More

I stayed at the Old School B&B for three weeks while visiting a colleague in Keele University. The accommodations are perfect. The setting is gorgeous. Even the weather has personality (some of the locals, I was told, could do without that - but for someone from Florida, that matters). The room is spotless, squeaky clean, the bathroom the same. Val... More

Excellent accommodation, large comfortable bed, spotlessly clean bathroom and great value. We had the room with private bathroom across the landing, but robes were provided if needed. Plenty of tea/coffee in the dining room to help yourself during the evening. Excellent breakfast with veggie options. Friendly owners - highly recommended and would stay again if we are in the area... More

We had a wonderful time here- picking up my son from the University, my husband and I spent 2 nights here. We were made so welcome. Good conversations, outstanding breakfasts and spotless room. Lovely decor. My only sorrow is that we couldn't stay longer!

This is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting Keele - standards are high with sstylish traditional decor, and the price is very reasonable. Book early because there are only a couple of rooms. Our room was large and comfortable with TV and there is a nice sitting room downstairs with the added bonus of a choice of... More

We spent a lovely night at the Old School Keele whilst visiting our student daughter. From the beginning we were made very welcome and comfortable. Nice big, comfy bed, good quality bedding, beautifully clean, spacious bathroom. Breakfast was very relaxing, well organised, plentiful and delicious. I'd recommend the Staffordshire oat pancakes - delicious with perfectly poached egg. Definitely be returning... More

We have been coming to The Old School House in Keele for a few years. Its right at the heart of keele village just outside the potteries if you want to visit the Emma Bridgewater Factory ( I recommend this, the poetteries museum and the portmerion outlet shop) with woodland walks around Keele Hall and lakes just five minutes way...

Perfect place for visiting Keele students. Within a stone's throw of the campus and also a pub serving excellent meals. Short drive to The Peak District. Interesting house with character and a warm welcome from Val. First class breakfast and good value for money.
