Wow......from the moment we booked over the phone until we left, the service and hospitality was first class !!! Heywood Hall is the perfect place for families or couples wanting to enjoy a genuine home from home experience. We chose Heywood Hall after reading excellent reviews but it exceeded our expectations. Ten mins from Alton Towers so perfect for families wanting to go there,or to check out the beautiful surrounding area. Attention to detail was outstanding, everything we needed was provided. All in all our 2 nights there was perfect!!! Thankyou Alison and Josef .

What a brilliant place. Beautiful surroundings, amazing hot tub and the attention to detail was second to none. All local produce and brands for the breakfast, well stocked and no expense spared. Very clean and beautifully presented. Highly recommended!

Looked for somewhere child friendly to stay for a couple of nights for visit to Alton Towers with the two children and we couldn't have found anywhere better. We stayed in the Sally suite at Heywood Hall which was fantastic. It was absolutely perfect. The suite was a great size for us all, the accommodation was immaculately clean and the breakfast was more than we needed, it was outstanding. There was a double bedroom, large family bathroom, sitting room, separate kitchen, shower and toilet room, and the children had their own separate room which they shared with two HUGE cuddly tigers on the bed which my daughter absolutely adored and wanted to bring home with us. The owners Alison and Joseph were incredibly helpful and kind, as we arrived a little earlier than we should have. There was also a large jacuzzi outside which the kids made great use of, and kept them busy along with the playstation in the bedroom !! My son wanted to stay at Heywood and not bother with Alton Towers, but once we got to Alton Towers he was passified. This is the most perfect accommodation for anyone to stay at who is visiting Alton Towers or the surrounding area and I will be recommending it to all my friends with kids and without kids. You must try it.

Room Tip: Sally suite is perfect for two adults and two children.

Thank you for your positive review, we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. The Tigers are still upset that your daughter is no longer there to give them a stroke and a cuddle!
It is good to know that you enjoyed your time at Alton Towers and could relax in the evening at our home.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

My husband and I and our toddler spent 5 nights in the Sally suite earlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Alison and Joseph (and their pets) were so friendly and the room decorations were great - our son loved them! The place was immaculate. The well-stocked fridge provided more than enough food for a fantastic breakfast every day, and it was so handy having so much space. We also loved the hot tub (although maybe would have liked it to have been open a little earlier in the day - opening hours were 5pm - 10pm during our stay) and the farm shop around the corner served us a fab afternoon tea! Very handy location for Alton Towers and we also visited the Peak District (Dovedale and Ilam) and Drayton Manor (a bit further away).

Room Tip: The Sally suite is upstairs and towards the side and back of the building (away from the main road)

Having stayed in the AT hotel last year we realised how impractical it was with a young family if you wanted to stay up later than your children. We looked for somewhere with suites so we could have a separate bedroom from the kids but also have somewhere to spend the evening without being away from them. HH was perfect. The Tiger themed room they were in was a source of great delight to my 3 and 5 year old and I loved our Tuscan decor. The food we were left was mostly of a high standard (the pain au chocolat were under par but the cooked breakfast food in particular was lovely) and generally we had most of what we needed. Some kitchen towel would have been useful but that's about the only notable thing lacking. Additionally, we contacted the owners ahead of our stay to ask if we could charge our electric car while we were there and they were very accommodating. This made a big difference to the convenience of our stay and journey so we were very grateful for their help with this. We will definitely be back next year.

Dear Emma
Thank you very much for your review and we are so glad you and your family enjoyed yours stay and the charging facility for your car was a help.
The croissants are French, The weather was quite warm and melted the chocolate, so they may not have been as good as they could have been. We use a different supplier now.( Still French croissants of course!) .
We hope to be able to welcome you back next year.

Outstanding!! We spent one night in the Sally suite, our daughter was so amazed by her jungle themed room and we all felt the experience and stay was far superior to our second night where we stayed in one of the themed rooms at the alton towers resort. We highly recommend taking a dip in the hot tub, what a treat! The food at the local pub was great too, we will def stay again when taking the family to alton towers just wish we had booked our second night with you too!

A wonderful hotel near to Alton Towers at half the price of hotels in theme park.
We stayed for one night yesterday.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious with a fridge full of good, bowl of fruit and pasties/cereals for breakfast.
The owners couldn't do enough for us.
The hot tub and sauna amazing and very clean.
I will not be using hotels at theme park ever again but will use this hotel from now on.
