We have been lucky to stay in Swallows Nest self catering accommodation within the premises. Very quiet and beautiful place maintained to a high standard. Despite the host's concerns regarding Swallows Nest not being suitable for small children we felt it was all we ever wanted. There were no problems whatsoever. There is Londis just 2 minutes driving down the...

This is a charming country B&B run by the most friendly and welcoming couple. The location couldn't be more ideal for a trip to the theme park, whereby you can simply walk to the gates and into the park. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with an en suite. Breakfast is provided and delivered directly to your room in...

Currently staying here with my husband for 2 nights while we visit alton towers and the surrounding area. Arrived a little earlier than check in time yesterday but our room was ready and Carol welcomed us and showed us upstairs. She recommended places for us to visit that afternoon and where we could go for dinner. Had the cooked breakfast...

Searching for a nearby guest house close to Alton Towers we could not have asked for a better location. Ivy Trough House sits on the doorstep to the main entrance of Alton Towers a 5 minute walk to entry. The guest house as it should be referred to not a hotel as the service from the owners is personal and...

Lovely property run by a very kind couple. Breakfast of hot croissants delivered to the room, or you can go down for a full English for £5.50 extra. Amenities in room are perfectly adequate, comfy bed, quiet rooms. Very short walk into Alton Towers at a fraction of the price you will pay to study in resort. Definitely recommend staying...

Upon booking I had a little issue with card not being accepted for deposit to which Terry phoned just to double check details, after hearing about the birthday...

The owner at this place verbally abused and berated us for arriving an hour later than we had indicated, due to circumstances outside our control. He was eccentric and erratic and, while the lodgings were otherwise adequate, I would advise finding another accommodation provider. His behaviour was unprecedented in my experience of hospitality. He also made xenophobic comments during our...

We are very disappointed to have received this unfair review and would like to offer the following response. This guest had indicated and confirmed by email on her booking details that she would arrive between 9pm and 10pm. At quarter to twelve, having not had any contact by phone or email, we assumed she was not going to arrive and...
