Staff couldn't be anymore helpful or accommodating. Breakfast was a delicious full english, with the hubby having a sausage and bacon sandwich, looked on by the various birdlife outside the window! Rooms were relaxing and comfortable and the B&B views were absolutely stunning.

Pulled up onto the drive, first thoughts were that it looked lovely. Greeted at the door by a welcoming owner. Given a little tour, even got our own front door key incase we wanted to go the the pub down the road. Lovely house & room very homely. Would stay there again definitely

Amazing property, amazing service and great value for money... would recommend this little slice of heaven for anybody travelling to Alton Towers for a long weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and made to feel welcome the minute you walk through the door.

Lisa. We really appreciate your kind comments. Whilst it's probably too much to expect you to travel all the way from New Zealand to see us again, you know where we are should you be in the UK in the future :-)

Wonderful atmosphere and staff. The place and staff were clean, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but with plenty of choice for everyone. Would not hesitate to stay here again in the future. Could not have been better.

Lovely people. Although part of our group was slightly late they were very patient and welcoming upon arrival. Halloween decorations made it feel extra special for the kids. Nice breakfast and comfy rooms. Only 5 min drive to Alton Towers. Would book again given the chance when we next come.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were so kind and even decorated our breakfast table with Happy Birthday as it was my LO's second birthday. The rooms were superb and the Halloween decor were fantastic. Will definitely be staying here again

Midweek stay whilst visiting Alton Towers. The place is immaculate, only a 5 minute journey from the theme park, there's a pub down the road called the star which is great for your evening meal. The laurels is extremely welcoming, very peaceful and serve a great breakfast!
