We stayed here as a family of 8 for two nights this weekend while visiting Alton Towers. The B&B is 2 minutes from the theme park which is fab. It is a lovely building and area, with parking on site. Would like to say a special thank you to Mel for accommodating half of our party arriving early hours Saturday... More

After spending a long day at Alton Towers, were we warmly greeted by the lovely family who run the B&B. Our rooms were beautiful, cosy and quaint - there was even a teddy bear to cuddle at night! Breakfast was delicious and there were plenty of options (even for vegetarians like me!). The B&B is also situated in a picturesque... More

Set in a picturesque village near to Alton Towers this superb B&B is ideal for a short break. With many nearby walks or within a short distance of more walking experiences in the Peak District you couldn't have a better location. The hosts were very amenable, friendly and catered for everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was tops... More

Lovely B&B. Alton is a stunning village, and the B & B is in the heart of it. We stayed for 2 nights. We were in the Africa themed room, my daughter loved the bunk beds. The room was well stocked, and very comfortable. The breakfast was generous and delicious. Lovely family run it, who are very helpful and pleasant!

This is our third year staying at the malthouse and it is still very good. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean and tidy. Breakfast is great too. It is in a good location with pubs and alton village shops nearby and we stay here to go to alton towers which is just up the road.
