Christian run, converted castle type hotel aprox 20 mins drive from Alton towers - which was the sole reason for our stay. Only a 2 min drive away from Matlock, where there are some nice little bars and places to eat. Hotel was undergoing some renovations, so soem scaffolding to the side. The Hotel is very 'religious' in decor/pics/ornaments etc, and we are not religious. However dont let this put you off in any way. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very nice, and the price of £50 a night for a double was great for its location. Our room had a fab view out over the nearby river and bed was extremely comfy. There was a restaurant downstairs, however we got food in Matlock, so cant comment on what the food it like. Would highly recommend and would stay there on our next visit to Alton towers.
