Perfectly located for a trip to Alton Towers but also, as it happens, in a beautiful part of the Staffordshire countryside which makes the area worth visiting quite apart from any draw from the roller coasters. The place is immaculately clean and very well presented and guests are given a very warm and friendly welcome.

We had a really great weekend staying at the Laurels. Very friendly and welcoming. Amazing breakfasts and a warm and relaxing bedroom. We stayed in the family room with our 2 children and they also loved it there too. Very close to Alton Towers and I would recommend staying here. We will book again next year!

Stayed here for two nights with friends as we visited Alton Towers. Very friendly staff who are always happy to help. Clean and tidy rooms with nice views (depending what room you're in). Breakfast also very good with a variety of cereals and cooked breakfast. 100% stay there again if we visit Alton Towers again! Perfect B&B.

What a lovely little B&B close to Alton Towers. The couple who run it are very accommodating and welcoming and the breakfast is superb! The rooms are clean and very comfy beds. Would highly recommend.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review, as you have with many other properties you've visited. We're sorry you were disappointed with your breakfast on the first morning. However you did receive exactly what you ordered. The next morning (ordering off the same menu) you decided to have the Full English Breakfast, which is much larger. We can... More

Very well kept property, friendly service and as family it worked well for Alton Towers the next day. Decor dated and uninspiring and I dislike carpets in bathrooms but that's personal. Owner very professional. He called the following day as he had found something that may have belonged to us, so very good service. We would stay again.

Many thanks for your review. It's nice to know you'd happily stay with us again. We're sorry the decor in your room wasn't to your liking. Having said that, it's one of only a few of our rooms that we haven't recently refurbished. Phil and Helen More
