I stayed at the Upper House for a night with some work colleagues based on a few good TripAdvisor reviews and some terrible ones for some of the local competition. We were not disappointed. The Upper House is an interesting and nicely furnished building with extensive grounds. Our rooms were comfortable and the staff friendly. The full English breakfast was of a good standard and we enjoyed the Wednesday evening Thai cuisine. The hotel is only a few miles drive from Stone and good value. I hope to return soon!

We stayed at the upper house for a friends wedding. It was such a nice place to hold because of the grounds for photos and just how comfortable the place was. It was a home away from home.
Rooms were a little on the expensive side as we stayed for 2 nights but the pics were beautiful, the food was gorgeous and the staff were really helpful.
The bar/lounge came in handy when a few of the girls and the bride needed somewhere to relax the night before the wedding and i can honestly say we never had any trouble.

The rooms were clean and tidy, the place was full of character too. My friends will remember this day and this place for the rest of their lives. Well worth a visit

This is more than your average B & B. Delightful house, elegantly furnished with loads of Wedgewood china. Clean pleasant if slightly small rooms, plenty of piping hot water and lovely breakfasts and dinners. And for £70 a night for a single room excellent value. Really friendly staff - a real find.

Stoke is not well served by B&Bs or independent hotels, but as a B&B goes, this place is alright. The Bedrooms are individually decorated with good taste, but avoid the ones on the upper floors are they must have been converted from the servants quarters and are somewhat cramped as a result. The place is set in its own, quiet and nicely landscaped extensive grounds and as a converted country house gets 6/10. As well as the aformentioned upper floor issues, some of the public rooms are a bit idiosyncratic - melamine topped tables and cheap chairs just don't fit in with the ambeince of the rest of the place.

The staff were welcoming, breakfast cooked promptly to order and served piping hot and there is a reasonable pub in the village and others nearby (Swynnerton Arms in Rough Close is OK).

Not a hotel though - evening meals (apart from the occasional 'Thai night') appears to be straight out of a Brake Brothers catalogue (and overpriced at that).
