“Simply Wonderful”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I cannot rate Alton Brook House and the wonderful service highly enough. I had some issues with my booking, my fault not theirs, and they went our of their way to help me out, going above and beyond the call of customer service. On arrival despite having already been incredibly accomdating they kindly upgraded us as a random act of kindness, amazing! Our room was beautiful, and the service wonderful. A truly lovely place with truly lovely people.

Thank you for a much needed relaxing break, I look forward to coming back to see you soon.

We stayed here for two nights when Visiting Alton Towers. On arrival we were shown to the Shepherds Folly, which was absolutely beautiful & so were the surroundings. Facilities were great and staff were friendly & helpful especially Lisa. Breakfast was superb & was brought over to us at the lodge at the exact times arranged. Only fault was that the walk to Alton Towers was a lot longer than we were told, but other than this we were overly impressed. Would definately stay again & hope to. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The Shepherds Folly was cosy, comfortable & beautifully decorated.

Have just come back from a one night stay here. Whilst visiting alton towers. When using Sat nav it can be quite confusing trying to find the place....sat navs take you to a completely different house keep going its just around the bend!!!
On arrival we were shown to our room, we stayed in the shepherds lodge, which was in its own little field next to the horse field and the ducks house. It was stunning!!!!! See pictures. We were given a bottle of champagne a carton of orange juice and milk. We were told about all local places to eat etc then we were given cake and had a lovely cup of tea with cake and Bucks Fizz!!! We sat outside for a little while then went into town to eat. comfortable nights sleep and very peaceful. Breakfast came to us at the the time we picked in the evening. It was bought over to us by a young girl in a big basket and it had plates of eggs, sausages, bacon, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes loafs of brown and white bread (toaster, hob and microwave in our lodge) butter, croissants, pain au chocolate and pancakes!!!!! Shower hot! This place is amazing and one of the best places I have stayed definitely better than any room!!! Thank you for making our stay amazing!!!

I have just returned from staying at the beautiful Alton brook house for my 25th birthday with my partner after a trip to Alton towers. upon arrival it appeared that there had been a mix up with the booking (via late rooms.com) but Lisa was more than accommodating and helpful with our situation. our room was spotless! with a comfy king size bed and our own bathroom...Finally a nice hot bath! :) breakfast was beautiful and more than enough choice. upon arrival, lisa sat us in the guest lounge and brought us tea. we were then shown around our room, given details of all local restaurants and things to do/see. i would like to take the opportunity to personally thank Lisa again for everything she did for us....her kindness had no limits :)

Stayed here at the beginning of Sept and I highly recommend it. Beautiful setting, very peaceful.
The welcome was fantastic, very friendly, made to feel very welcome and at home. The lady offered tea and cake on arrival and was very informative of the area.
The room was small, but beautifully decorated. Very clean. Bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast was outstanding, only criticism was there was too much! Massive selection of high quality food.
Service over breakfast from the young girl was friendly and attentive.
Could not fault the place, thank you very much. Will definitely stay again.

I am compelled to write a review of Alton Brook House B&B as it was so lovely!
We arrived on Saturday evening after a long day at Alton Towers and was greated by a lovely lady who could not do enough for us, she recommended local restaurents , showed us to our family room ( room 2) and we just didnt want to leave!
It was such good value, the room was a good size with 4 proper beds, 2 single , 1 king and it was so tastefully decorated, the bathroom was huge and looked very new. There were tea/coffee making facilities too. The breakfast next morning was not at all what we expected...it was fantastic , a proper hearty cooked breakfast and with fresh pancakes, croissants etc etc etc!!!. We will definitely be returning and will recommend to everyone! A much better stay than at the Alton Towers Hotel!
What a gem, thank you all the staff at the Alton Brook House B&B .

Room Tip: Room 2 a proper family room.! very roomy!

Just 2.6 miles from Alton Towers, Alton Brook House, a large six bed-roomed detached country house, makes the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday with Dogs and Horses.

The original part of this country house is believed to date back to 1850 and has been thoughtfully extended over the years to substantially enlarge and enhance the house. Many original features have been retained, including beams and open fires. The gardens wrap around all four sides with lawns and terraces, all completely fenced in, and visited by a large variety of birds. Alton Brook House provides the perfect family base to explore all that beautiful Derbyshire/Staffordshire has to offer.
