Absolutely do not book into here, our room was filthy, dust everywhere, bedside table. Had sticky cup/glass marks, carpet not hoovered, a strong smell of damp, we went for a drink, returned and packed and left within 1/2 hour. It needs a total overhaul and new owners, the couple in there now must be in their 90s and have no...

Now, i'll start by saying I have a 3 yr old and as majority of parents out there with toddlers will attest, you treat any (rare) weekend away with the wife with utmost respect - lots of lie ins, and lots of misbehaviour!

It would appear That my review 8/11/12 is for the wrong Bed and Breakfast, I stayed at the Old School in Haughton, near Stafford! I have not stayed here so please ignore my previous review folks, apologies to the owners.

The food is great and all organic. If you like coffee then you will love the Nespresso machine in the dining room and Val has my...

I`m easily pleased but not here. I felt like I was sleeping in a morgue, cold with that permanent chill in the air, The owners have no sense of customer satisfaction and breakfast was the worst I have ever picked at. I had arranged to stay here for 3 nights, but didn`t go back after the first. Avoid.

In need of substantial refurbishment. Tired old fashioned decorations, depressing. Regrettably nothing to recommend any aspect.
