I had been to castleton many many times but I have never stayed over for the weekend, with living in Stoke we arent that far away but I booked this B&B for me and BF to get away for the weekend. When we arrived about 7:30pm Alan was there to answer the door and meet us with big smiles, friendly attitude and a handshake. We couldn't quite park that close to the B&B and Alan offered to move his car for us to park right outside but he couldn't find his keys which we found amusing but it didnt bother us.
He showed us to our room which was very large and brightly decorated. The only thing I could fault with the room was that there was too many chairs, there were 3 large chairs that we never used, one was placed next to the bed which left a little space to get past to use the bathroom, if this was removed then the room would look much bigger. We had replenished tea and coffee so we could enjoy a hot drink when we got back from our walk in the afternoon and the bed was made.
Breakfast was plentiful served from 8:30-9:30 but there were a few people who came down later than that and Alan had no problem with making them breakfast at this time which showed excellent customer service. There was cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, tea and coffee on offer whilst we waited for our full english breakfast which was also plentiful. Good job we went for a walk that morning to exercise it all off!
We spent two nights there and were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Another thing i noticed which i couldnt find noted anywhere was that this family does have a cat and it was present at breakfast meowing around peoples feet. I personally am allergic to cats but luckily he didnt come anywhere near me so I was fine. if you dont like cats or animals around you while eating be aware of this the car may be joining you in the room for breakfast.
Overall I would definitely stay here again.
