Just returned from three night visit to The Malthouse a return visit several times over and we wouldn't go anywhere else! It is an excellent location for Alton Towers and exploring the local area.

Lovely location, lovely rooms, lovely owners. We stayed in the annexe, the stables, with our son and his grandma and had a fabulous time. The rooms are big and bright (1 of which had a four poster bed) and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is just the best you can get, cooked to order. Alton towers is a 5 minute drive and...

I love this place, beautiful gardens, lovely breakfasts, lovely people who can't do enough for you. No complaints about anything - all brilliant. Can I add that the amount of little birds in the garden are just fantastic - I am soooo jealous!!

Booked this B&B due to it being only 5 minutes from Alton Towers. Had a lovely room, very refined, heard very little noise, had my own parking space, lovely full English breakfast. Owners are very welcoming and friendly. Can't fault this B&B at all really.

A good value BnB. Comfortable enough although not the best beds in the world. Breakfast was really talked up by the landlady and I was left very disappointed. Lots of rules posted around the place which made me feel like I was being treated like a child. Very old fashioned place and probably exactly what is expected of a country...
