We (family of four) stayed in the Station Hotel for three nights in August as a base close to Alton Towers and for exploring the Peak District.The hotel has lots of old world charm, every room has its own character. The personal attention we received from the owner/manager (David) from the moment we arrived was excellent and is hard to find these days. The rooms were spacious and clean, tastefully decorated and the creaky floorboard in our double room only added to the character of what is a period building. Didn't get to check out the hot tub, but the full English breakfast, cooked to perfection, was the best I've ever had in any hotel anywhere. The girl serving breakfast was polite and charming and nothing was any trouble for her. The location is ideal for Alton towers (about a 15 min drive) and has the beautiful countryside of the Peak District on its doorstep. Take time to discover the market town of Ashbourne which is lovely with many nice restaurants and traditional English pubs. Would definitely stay at this hotel again if I am ever back in that neck of the woods.
