The B and B itself was absolutely amazing. Lovely little location. Easy to find and within reach of the Alton towers resort. Lynn was an absolute dream host. Very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were immaculate and very well presented. Breakfast was amazing!! Will definitely be staying there again if in the area. Keep it up! Xx

Thank you for your glowing review of Bank House. Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Boudoir, its a very popular choice with our guests. I suspect its the touch of luxury with the whirlpool bathroom that makes it popular. Would be great to welcome you back perhaps you could try Marilyn next time.

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We checked in early and were able to leave our bags in the room and then head out to the Scarefest at Alton Towers for the day.

Close to Alton Towers...local Pub to eat evening meal at (c.150 yards)...great Breakfast...very nice (Mod-themed) family room. I would knock off half a point as the parking is a bit tight if the Car Park is fullish (no turning space), but as that's the biggest criticism, you can tell I was not disappointed. Would not bother looking elsewhere for my...
