Knew from the minute I booked this B&B I wouldn't be disappointed! When I rang to enquire about availability, the lady taking bookings couldn't have been more friendly, or helpful! Me and my daughter stayed for 1 night (6th sept) while visiting Alton Towers. After arriving at 6.30(after a VERY wet) day at the park, we were shown to our...

It was fantastic to have such a lovely Mum and Daughter stay with us. We're glad they enjoyed the views, breakfast, facilities and of course their visit to Alton Towers. Hopefully we will see them again and will cross our fingers for better weather next time!

Stumbled across the Malthouse B&B for last minute accommodation for a 2 day trip to Alton Towers for our son’s 11th birthday treat (2 adults & 2 children aged 11 & 8). I booked by telephone (although online booking is available) as I wanted to be sure the bed listed as available online was still available. Spoke to a very...

I stayed here a while back with my partner. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the village and surrounding area. There were a lot of notes left around the room with warnings about charging you extra if you spoil anything or touch anything that shouldn't be touched (e.g. a spare bed in the room was apparently off limits)...

Thanks for adding your review. Like you, many of the guests that stay with us are visiting Alton Towers. As we're in the village of Alton and only one mile away from Alton Towers, so location is pretty handy if you're visiting the theme park. As you say we are friendly and we really enjoy chatting to our guests, we...

Stayed here at the beginning of June with my boyfriend for one night, as we were visiting Alton Towers. Friendly service, clean rooms, and great breakfast. Would recommend to others, and intend to return.
