A great B and B perfectly placed for a stay in Alton. Five mins from the Towers and five mins walk from the best pub. Rooms, host and breakfast excellent. I always support small local businesses book your stay here much better than the big commercial Alton Towers Hotel.

Hosts very helpful telling us where to go for evening meals short cuts into park. Best taxis to use. To See it from the front appears ordinary. Until step inside. And breakfasts are great... More

The guest house owners were very welcoming, friendly and advisory. It is situated 3 minutes from Alton towers, which was perfect for our stay.

From the outside it just looks like a boring building. But inside is so lovely. You are greeted with a smile and a warm room (exactly what you need when its freezing outside) we were shown to our room which was James Bond themed.
