“Amazing place”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Whiston hall Is a great place to stay. I stayed here with family whilst visiting alton towers. The staff are very friendly and are very helpful to your needs. The room we stayed in was at very high standards and very clean. It wasn't your average hotel it was amazing. The food was great and tasted great and the staff who served us were very well mannered and polite. They were very nice to my children and I would define toy recommend to stay here. I will be visiting again soon.

When you approach the hotel you are greeted by the Bentleys the entrance and reception area look great and Maurice was friendly and welcoming. The halls are decorated nicely and you think you are in for a treat.
We then entered our room (room 1) and were a bit taken by surprise. The room looked sparse to say the least with one bedside table on one side, a makeshift bed at the end of the room and an old dresser which had obviously had, had a hard life over the years. The tv is tiny and the kettle lead is impossible to use with the lead in.
If only the bedrooms were decorated as nicely as the rest of the hotel this would be 5 stars. Maurice and (wife?) were very accommodating and always had a laugh with them every time we saw them. Can't fault their approach to customers and enthusiasm. Get those rooms sorted and get the 5 stars you deserve!

Stayed for i night on26th October on our way to Alton Towers. First thing the hotel did was take payment. If they'd waited till we checked out we might not have paid it was so bad. The room was basic. The bed was 2 singles stuck together and was very uncomfortable. There was a flyer in a drawer advertising " hot girls" and so we had to try and explain to our son what this meant. We could not use the shower as the poor pressure of cold water meant we could not get it below scalding. Dinner was like Fawlty Towers. There were 4 of us in 2 rooms and not one meal was correct. When we pointed this out the owner lost his temper and took the food away saying we would not have to pay for it. this hotel is in the middle of nowhere so we were left hungry. The TV in the room was tiny and had no remote so you could not change channel. We went back down to the bar at 10.50pm but it was locked with no staff in view and they were not answering the phone when we tried that. The walls were paper thin and we could hear every word on next door's TV. There was no fire exit info in the rooms which I'm pretty sure is illegal. Breakfast was barely adequate. Don't get me wrong if we'd paid £40 for a basic B & B it would have been OK. But this was part of a birthday treat for our son-in-law and was nothing short of an embarrassment for us. At the price charged, and given the claims on the website, we expected a country house hotel. It was convenient for Alton Towers, and if you can negotiate a rate of £60 or less, its just about OK, but if they want anything more than that I would advise steering clear.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!

I am also very disappointed to see this review, I was at the hotel when this guest visited..the first instance i saw was upon check in..the guest did book two rooms..they first said they had paid in full attempting not to pay..when my desk manager did inform them that the hotel policy was only a deposit was taken upon reservation the guest begun to argue..then the evening meal was served, my waiter took the order and the guests returned the meals three times complaining that it was not what they ordered..one of the guests even claimed to be a chef...and argued that the meal was below his standard..we had many diners that evening and they also commented on this strange behavior, we did not charge the guests for the meal as they were so confrontational and rude..the guests said that there was adult literature in the bedside draw.. this is far from the truth we are a very proud establishment and this is purely a representation of these very troubled people..i hope these people don't visit us again as its very sad that they visit places with a view to argue to get the stay for free when they simple cant afford to go away...

Stayed in this hotel while visiting Alton towers! Ideal base! Our room was spotless clean & was a great size for us. Our evening meal was cooked fresh, and was delightful & was really well presented! Every request was met & staff really went out their way for us! Our cooked breakfast again in the morning was delightful!

I travel and stay away frequently for my work and try to steer clear of faceless generic hotel chains, preferring instead to find smaller independent hotels. This can be risky as you can have some terrible experiences, but then you can also find a little gem like Whiston Hall. We booked the last three rooms in the hotel for our family Alton Towers trip. The hotel is in an impressive setting overlooking a golf course. We had two double rooms and one family room. All the rooms were a good size and very clean. The beds comfy and there was plenty of tea and coffee making facilities. Bathrooms were again very clean and fresh. We did notice that our room was lacking a hairdryer ( for my wife. My days of having hair being long gone!). We spoke to an extreamly helpful man at reception who provided one instantly. He apologised for the fact that it was not in the room and expained that they had had to remove them due to the theft of over fifty of them in 18 months!
The dining room was large and the staff moved the tables so that all seven of us could sit together for a family breakfast. The manager very kindly upgraded our breakfast from continental to full english and served it himself. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and washed down with plenty of tea and fruit juice.
When the time to check out came, the manager came to the reception desk to ensure that we had all enjoyed our stay, which I thought was a nice touch.
To sum up, Whiston Hall is a charming hotel. It is not the Ritz, but it is well looked after and very clean throughout, The manager and staff are increadibly helpful and you really get the feeling that nothing is too much trouble for them, just ask!
We will certainly be returning.

Stopped at the hotel for one night, I ate in the restaurant and had an amazingly good fillet steak. The chef Warren was helpful and could not be faulted. The staff are friendly, helpful and quite informal which gives a feeling of comfort. As for the rooms they were clean and well appointed. The bed was nice and comfy and slept extremely well. It is in a lovely setting within a small but challenging golf course. Their are local footpath walks and fishing is available within the grounds.

All in all an enjoyable visit.
