We recently stayed here, as very close to Alton towers. We booked through agent, however when we tried to contact the inn, no one ever answered. The staff were a little clueless, however very polite, just seems they were just about getting by. Room was big, spacious, very stuffy though. Needs updating, especially the bathroom . Took me a while to a least get wet in the shower, toilet flushed when it wanted too. We couldn't lock the door, so had to leave open. Staff were run ragged at night, lady in kitchen was amazing, food was brilliant, she was so nice and welcoming, she did a grand job for breakfast too. It seems they just muddle by, day by day. Shame as could be such a gold mine with Alton towers so close. Not sure if would stay again....I doubt it but as I said more than good enough to get your head down.
