Absolutely fabulous B and B....great history associated with the building and the village. Warm and friendly hosts. Quality and choice for breakfast excellent. This is an 11 out of 10 place to rest your head.

This b and b is amazing. We were attending an applicant day at Keele University, literally within walking distance. The business is situated within an old school house with bags of character. We rented both rooms which were spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable, quiet and each with their own bathrooms. We felt 'right at home' using the dining room as and...

We recently spent a couple of days at keele university for our granddaughters graduation. This establishment is excellent. The food at breakfast would shame a lot of 5 star hotels. Fresh fruit assortment, numerous cereals, jams,bread and a full English breakfast. A large assortment of teas & coffee. My wife is a vegetarian and was catered for fully. The bedtime...

We stayed in August 2016, lovely walk to Keele University and historic Keele Hall. Easy drive to Newcastle-under-Lyme. Very clean,delicious breakfast, and Val full of local knowledge. Wonderful historic stay. Easy to find off the main highway, good off road parking, quiet, easy walk to local pub, small rural village.

Comfortable, quiet, CLEAN, friendly, and the sort of breakfast you'd expect in a top quality hotel. And if like me you don't eat factory-farmed meat, note that the owner serves up bacon and sausages from a local welfare-assured farm/butcher. Very reasonable prices too. I've pretty much decided that if I ever need a B&B within 20-30 miles then this is...

The Old School House is a wonderful B&B with just 2 guest bedrooms. Peaceful and quiet, you can be assured of a good nights' rest in a beautiful converted school house. We were attending a private function at Keele University and this was a perfect place for us. The double bedroom was clean and comfortable, with en-suite. Breakfast was superb,...

Everything was perfect. The room was extremely comfortable with big bed and a writing bureau (ideal as I had to work some nights), as well as the usual TV and wardrobe. The separate bathroom was spotlessly clean, with a bath tub. The breakfast was impressive. Fresh fruit, yogurts and cereal with the option of a cooked breakfast if not yet...

This is an excellent B&B in a historic building with rooms of character. My wife and I spent two nights in the Red Room, which has a luxuriously comfortable king-size bed. The soft bathrobes are another luxury touch, something rarely provided in a private B&B. Not en suite, but the spacious bathroom just across the hall is for you alone...

“The Old School Keele is quite isolated so probably find something to entertain yourself and consume unless you don't mind the pub or a bit of travelling. Its lovely but be aware.”
