My friend and our 2, 13 year old boys stayed at the Bank House in the Flintstones Room for 2 nights (21-23 Aug}. The room was an ideal layout for our party of 4. So much detail had been paid to the theme of the room but the warm welcome we received and fabulous breakfast topped the bill for us!...

We almost booked at Splash Landings (SL) hotel as we were traveling to Alton Towers with children aged 9 & 7. After reading many reviews of SL most were saying the hotel is very expensive, the rooms are cramped and in need of updating, but the 'vibe' was good. Well, we stayed here at Bank House and had dinner &...

Thank you for your lengthy and detailed review of Bank House and your positive and worthy comments. I take on board your comments regarding our car park. It is small, thankfully we have not had a prang and we entertain large vehicles( large estates and 4x4) without problem on a daily basis. I'm saddened to read you felt bad vibes...

We stayed at Bank House at the end of July for 2 nights to complement our stay at Alton Towers. We booked the Sports room and we weren't disappointed.
