When going to Staffordshire, either to go to Alton Towers or to talk a walk in the beautiful countryside, you couldn't pick a better place to stay. The rooms are clean and best of all they're unique... just look at the pictures... We stayed in the Boudoir room, which was very comfortable indeed and the whirlpool bath was great... Amazing...

I stayed here with my husband and 3 boys last week and had a fantastic time. We were made to feel so welcome. Our room (Flintstones) was ideal for a family of five and the boys loved the décor. Breakfast was great. Boys loved Lynn's pancakes. The village of Alton is very pretty and has a couple of good pubs....

Thank you for taking the time and effort to review us. We try our best to make our family group visitors feel welcome, possibly because we sought friendly accommodation when our children were young, so its good to see our attitude is appreciated.
