“Cheap n cheerful”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Stopped off here for a night prior to visiting Alton Towers. Handy location for the theme park, just off the main A50 and a 20 minute drive to the theme park. Room was clean enough, although we ended up in a disabled room (judging by the rails etc. round the toilet) which only had a tiny sink, barely big enough to wash your hands in.

We didn't use the on site restaurant, there is a MacDonalds next door and a Tesco just over the road, the cafe of which provides a good selection of breakfast items, hot or cold.

We booked to stay here the night before we went to alton towers. Easy to find and a short drive to alton towers so excellent location.

Hotel room had everything you need and was very clean, beds very comfy!

Excellent experience overall!

Just stayed at weathervane for a weekend, was very nice room and spacious. Really comfy beds and clean room only down side was the kettle was green mouldy inside. Stayed here for two nights as we were going to Alton Towers and is a 30 minute drive from this hotel and it is in a great place just on your door step is McDonalds and a Tesco which is good! Downstairs the restaurant was very nice had a goo choice of food and the food was lovely and cheap prices. Also stayed in the bar area at night which was good for a few drinks as well afterwards. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking about an over night stay whilst a visit to Alton Towers or just a break as it is a nice hotel. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

I stayed at the weathervane for two nights the rooms were clean and the bed very comfy but I was shocked with the food in the restaurant it was cold the staff were rude but the management even worse there attitude was disgusting to a paying guest they smelt of smoke and we're very scruffy the young pregnant girl on reception was eating her breakfast whilst I was checking out she was also abrupt and rude and quite frankly nasty like the manager I understand it is a budget hotel but manners don't cost a thing

Was searching for a hotel that was a good distance from Alton Towers and I think we picked one of the best hotels! It was £39 for the night for 2 of us and was around 25 minutes drive from the park. The hotel was clean and quiet and I would definitely stay here again. The hotel is joined with the Hungry Horse pub which means you don't have to go far for a good meal and the meals are also good value for money. The hotel is near a big Tesco and petrol station which is also handy.
