Myself, wife and two kids stayed here as part of a two day trip to nearby Alton Towers. We found the hotel through an online discount site and booked a family room for only £50.
After a great day at the theme park, the hotel was only a few miles away and easy to find. The car park is a little more tricky to find as you have to enter it via the main shopping car park. That said, plenty of room as the hotel was quiet.
The hotel itself is a little old but shows the character of the bank that was there before it. The staff were all very friendly, courteous and efficient. We were shown to our room after checking in and it was a really good size. The kids beds were in a separate area to the main bedroom with a door to close them off allowing us to watch TV in peace. The bathroom was off the main room and was big and clean as were the towels (plenty of these) and bed linen.
We had a couple of drinks in the bar before bed and slept soundly. We didnt eat in the hotel as already had plans elsewhere.
Overall, very satisfied with the hotel and a real bargain.
