We ended up at Park View by accident, having been double booked elsewhere and I was genuinely annoyed (at the other place) as the trip was part of my partner's birthday present. Within a few minutes of arriving the change of venue couldn't have mattered less. We were shown to a lovely room overlooking the garden with one of the most comfortable beds either of us had ever slept in. Stewart was quick to recommend local places to eat and on finding that it was my partners birthday was genuinely pleased for her, taking time in trying to help and provide local advice with all aspects of the evening. Being tired from a day at Alton Towers we opted for Stewart's recommendation for a local pub, the Master Potter, Despite it being a busy Friday night (shame about the karaoke being on) the food was well above the standard pub grub and won't disappoint, recommend mixed starter and the garlic topped steak, if you don't want to travel further afield. Back at the guest house the garden is wonderful to sit in on a sunny day and the room we had, 8, more than big enough. In the morning, the all you can eat breakfast is perfect. Stewart plays an attentive host, bringing newspapers and toast as well as recommending various home made delights from both the cooked breakfast and the continental. Jill appears with more delicious fresh breakfast items at a regular basis and despite my usual fearsome breakfast appetite I left the dining room full.
I've read other reviews which complain about the water pressure in the upstairs rooms, of which 8 is one, but I don't think it was a major issue.
Overall, I can't fault the experience and will be booking here again on purpose next time we return to the area.
