Booked my family into this lovely accommodation for our 3 day adrenaline trip to Alton Towers and do not have a bad thing say about this place right from the day I booked the communication with staff was 100% extremely helpful. Stunning first impressions with beautiful grounds. We arrived late on Sunday evening with our 3 young kids & we... More

Arrived at the reception which looked like a really old coaching inn and thought we were going to be in an old fashioned room but we were shown to a holiday camp style chalet which was "ok". The room had all you could want but it did look a bit tired. We stayed on a deal were you good a... More

Stayed here this weekend, and on first impressions we were pleased, the beautiful flower baskets outside the front and the service from the reception staff. We were shown to our room and were very happy with it. It was clean, fresh and was perfect with the parking space right outside the door. I have seen other people on here mention... More

My initial thoughts were to give this place a real slating and a dreadful review, but on reflection, I decided it deserved a more balanced account of our opinions of the place, so here goes. We were given a "Giftbox" voucher from our children for Christmas for a nights B&B, so after scouring the choices, the D&P seemed a reasonable... More

I have read your review with interest, we are not trying to be a five star, but a family run 17 th century inn with rooms in the grounds. I am glad you found the staff friendly, with a number of our staff working for us for many years. Most people like our rooms in the grounds as they find... More

We stayed here for an overnight break. Definitely not what I was expecting. Our room was in a block in the grounds and the area could only be described as a mini holiday park in my opinion. The room was dated, the bed was uncomfortable, the mattress needs replacing. My wife and I simply rolled into each other!! The room... More

We needed a stopover on the way back from a holiday down south so we could take my 6 year old to Alton Towers for her birthday and the Dog and Partridge was perfect! We had the dog with us so I thought i'd need to book her into a kennel somewhere close by but here we were able to... More

Booked this hotel for a couple of nights in conjunction with Alton Towers tickets & it was really good value. Great location - just a few miles from Alton Towers. Staff were friendly & welcoming. Loved our chalet which was spacious. One negative was that the sheets on the single bed looked like they had paw prints and were grubby.... More

Very spacious family room and massive choice for breakfast with cooked brekkie and super selection of breads/cereals etc (and crumpets) .. staff and owner very attentive. Ideal for us on a stopover to further north and a "stones throw" from Dovedale.

When we arrived, it was better than what we were expecting with our own shallet which was clean and modern with our own car parking space right outside.

Booked a room in conjunction with tickets to Alton towers which worked out relatively cheap and was pleasantly surprised when arrived at the hotel having not looked at pictures on the website. It was nice to be able to enjoy your own chalet which gave you more than just a b&b room - and having your car parked right out... More
