The Laurels is the perfect place to stay if you're visiting Alton Towers. It is run by a lovely couple, they are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good too. Lots to choose from for all the family. I would definitely recommend The Laurels to friends and family.

The Laurels is a beautiful B&B set in a perfect location for trips to Alton Towers. We stayed in a spacious family room for 4 which was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, as was the whole guest house. We all thoroughly enjoyed our delicious breakfast with choice of cereal and fruit juice before tucking in to our very generous cooked... More

Warm welcome and made us feel at ease. Happily shared local information to take the stress out of finding travel and food. The room was comfortable, quiet and at breakfast they were versatile with food options. We were visiting Alton Towers and (if you didn't want to worry about resort parking) the location was perfect for 10 minute bus, 5... More

Thank you for sharing your comments. We're so happy you had a great stay, although we probably wouldn't recommend walking to Alton Towers from here. It may only be a mile or so, but it's all up hill and there's no pavement :-( The best thing to do is take the bus, or just jump in the car :-) Regards... More

Our two night stay was fantastic. Great location for our visit to Alton Towers, which is 5 minutes away by car. Our room was very clean and comfortable for the four of us. Nothing was to much trouble, especially when it came to refreezing our ice packs. The full English breakfast is delicious, and staying here is highly recommended!!

Thanks for your feedback. We're so lucky to be in a fabulous location, overlooking the Churnet Valley AND being close to Alton Towers and the Peak District. We always ensure our guests have nice large towels in their rooms and will always top up tea and coffee if needed. Regards Phil and Helen More

Had an amazing stay thanks to the hosts. It was my wife's birthday and they treat us brilliantly. Very comfortable rooms. The 4 poster bedroom is a must with fabulous views. Would definately recommend.

Lovely house in a lovely location. We were made to feel so welcome. The rooms were lovely clean and cosy with a real homely feel. It's very close to Alton towers theme park ( about a mile but you need a car). There are some shops a few miles away in the town. Would stay here again.

The Laurels is just a short walk away from a friendly local pub. There are also many restaurants and pubs catering to a wide range of tastes within a few miles of The Laurels.
