We were in the Fitzgerald room on the ground floor. The room appeared clean however it was very tired considering it was 'refurbished in 2015'. The brown carpet was disintegrating with lumps and bumps underneath. When you got out of bed you stood on these. There was a round rug in the middle of the room, we presume to hide the rest of the carpet ( we were told on leaving there had been a plumbing problem and the floor had had to be lifted to cure this, but they were unaware of any lumps and bumps.) The room had damp mould in the right hand corner above the tea making facilities. The vintage wardrobe was levelled with mats. The patterned decorative dressing across the bottom of the bed was stained but clean. When we pulled it off to get into bed 2 large spiders came out with it! The shower room was tired, there was a 40mm gap at the bottom of the badly varnished door( most of the glass was covered in over spray.) the radiator was rusting and the floor which was painted white floorboards, shed paint when you walked on it. The hot water tap dribbled water eventually. The shower was good except the drainage was poor. My husband tried to clear the drain but it wasn't good. ( when we stepped out of the shower brown flecks from the carpet and white paint from the floor were left after the shower tray had drained. Patio doors to the overgrown, weedy garden which I'm sure once looked like the picture. The cooked breakfast was excellent, as was the fruit salad. However as a vegan I had toast and jam, several pots to choose rom and dishes to spoon individual portions in. However of the 2 types of marmalade one had a thin white mould coating and the other had butter in. I opened a new pot of jam which was nice. Coffee excellent as was the tea. Orange juice very good. However the chairs are in need of repair as the joints are loose in the 4 we used over the 2 days. Better decorated room in general but do look at the quirky angle of the radiator. A couple of local restaurants give a discount if you use them mentioning the b&b name - we went to the Italian it was excellent. Access to property on main road, so reverse in if possible. We understand the property is for sale due to ill health, and maybe that is why the rooms we experienced were so tired. We understand from other users that the rooms upstairs are in a far better condition. So, we wish the proprietors well in there retirement, and in the interim travellers don't book the Fitzgerald room.

Thank you for your exhaustive feedback - you must have been making notes! I'm sorry you were disappointed with your stay. I admit we have a few wonky floors and doors but in a 150 year old cottage that is hardly surprising. I found it wholly inappropriate for you to mention my ill health on a public forum and presume to use it as an excuse for our perceived faults - I pride myself on cleanliness, facilities, good customer service and value for money, as indicated by our many excellent reviews (4.8/5 on Trip Advisor and 9.5 on Booking.com). Coincidentally we have had another review today for the same room which is certainly more in keeping with our usual feedback.

What a beautiful B & B. From the gorgeous hanging baskets outside the property to the cosy and comfortable room. We had the F Scott Fitzgerald bedroom..very quirky, great artwork and furniture. The large bed was comfy and roomy. Bathroom had a great shower, lovely fluffy white towels, flannels etc. Tea and coffee with biscuits..yum. TV. Free WIFI. And as fab view into the garden. Sue and her husband made us feel very welcome and made us a scrumptious breakfast. Serials, yogurts, fresh fruit salad and juice, on top of a cooked breakfast with toast..we were happy with full tums.

We stayed just one night at this B&B to break a long journey home. We were given a very warm welcome, a lovely room, spotlessly clean with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was really delicious with ‘eggs straight from the coop’ ! Would highly recommend if you are in the Alsager area!

The breakfast is perfection on a plate. Three sausages, the egg fully cooked with liquid yolk and no chewy bits. Good quality bacon and freshly prepared toast. There was a rumour of a squished piece of fruit in the generous fruit bowl, but I didn’t see it.

I stay regularly in some pretty high end hotels and rarely if ever find accommodation that ticks every box possible...but this B & B was faultless, spotlessly clean, beautiful furnishings, friendly welcome near to great Italian Restaurant, fabulous breakfast, fridge stocked and complimentary tea/coffee and yummy bsicuits. I was genuinely astonished at how modest the cost was, think the owners could train many other hotels how to get it right!
