We stayed here while visiting alton towers, the owners are very nice people, they serve food and have a nice cosy bar downstairs. Close to other villages that have bowling and arcades and shops great to kill time on a night. Room could be looked after a bit better they are falling apart a bit but tend to be clean.

Was in a great location for Alton towers but very much in need of some tlc. My kids were tired so we almost went straight to sleep after dinner but even they were commenting in the morning about the spiders webs in the room and how the bathroom needed a bit of fixing. Was a bit pricey for what it... More

We are a family of 3, booked very last minute for a 2 night stay. Very late check in @ 10pm, called ahead to make them aware and no problems with this. We were given a chalet, double bed, single bed plus a set of bunk beds, full sized bathroom with over head shower. Small TV on the wall, kettle... More

Me and three friends stayed here when we got a two day pass to Alton towers, it's so handy as the rooms are clean and spacious the landlady is friendly and her home cooked food was delicious. Really reasonably priced. TV in each room. Showers were hot in my room but the other room we had was a little dated... More

We went for a family meal it looked lovely from the outside. However the service was beyond slow and the meals were ok. The chips were obviously frozen and not cooked properly. My meal was cold. Im guessing because it was kept back as they had to cook to of the five meals because they were given to another table.... More

Well Margaret the owner was not wrong when she met me at the door to the Peakstones inn and said "welcome i am sure you will enjoy your stay" The Chalet`s are spacious and great for a family and well maintained with a good powerful shower to wake you up in the morning. The Pub is original ( and is... More

Quirky would be an understatement! Try playing pool on a six sided revolving table or dining beneath an array of stuffed cartoon toys whilst staring at a wall completely covered with large stuffed pigs! For all its quirkiness, the Peakstones Inn provides good food, good beer and clean, comfortable rooms. Ideal for groups.

My partner an I stayed there for the night after a long day spent at alton towers. It was really easy to find but when we got out of the car we couldn't find a single door open... finally we managed to find the side door open. We made our way to the bar where the lovely landlady quickly sorted... More

Arrived after a fun filled day at Alton Towers. It was only 5 minutes drive from the theme park. We were greeted by Margaret the owner/landlady. She was very welcoming. On our entry into the pub we loved it immediately, all the features were stunning, even the toys/ teddy bears (won from Alton towers). Margaret took us to our room... More
