Arrived home yesterday from a great 2 night stay at this B&B. After spending some time browsing the websites of various B&B’s close to Alton Towers, I decided to book this 1 based on the location, themed rooms and facilities. It didn’t disappoint! I stayed with a friend and therefore wanted somewhere with a twin room, a DVD player and obviously to be as close to Alton Towers as possible.
We arrived early but were warmly welcomed and shown to our room straight away. The cleanliness was top notch – the room was tidy and fresh (the 80s themed 2 tone twin room) and there were packets of biscuits and hot chocolate waiting for us.
I liked the room; it had modern decor, comfortable beds, lots of storage space, a big mirror for make-up applying and quirky posters. It was plenty big enough for 2 people. The bathroom was a nice size and had a modern, easy to use shower.
The choice of food at breakfast time was great – everything from crumpets and pancakes to a full English available to order and cereals and toast there for the taking. As a vegetarian, I was impressed with the food on offer and was able to feel full after breakfast both mornings.
The location is perfect – Alton Towers is about a 5 minute drive away from the B&B and very easy to locate. There are various walks to go on around the B&B; you’re surrounded by nature and wildlife so it’s very picturesque! There are several pubs around, we went to the closest pub to Bank House and were very pleased with the quality of the excellent home-made food we were served. Not typical pub grub!
I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to this B&B – it is excellent value for money. We took advantage of the DVD player both nights and relaxed after hectic days with some comedies. The owners are both very friendly and informative about the area. I will remember this B&B for a long time and would recommend it to anyone who wants an Alton Towers break. Particularly friends, couples or families with children – they will love the character of the B&B!
Thanks Richard and Tracey, excellent stay!
