Myself and my partner stayed two nights at the Malthouse in April as we were visiting Alton Towers (literally a 5 minute drive away) for two days. Trawled the internet for B&B's and this one stood out head and shoulders above the rest in all the reviews.
When we arrived (tired and aching from a day at the theme park) we were warmly welcomed and shown to the 'African Room'. A good sized en-suite room with lots of nice little touches(especially the biscuits!), spotlessly clean, great view, comfy bed and just a lovely, cosy, homely feel. Also has wifi, which was nice for keeping in touch.
Everyone there makes you feel at home, are willing to stop and chat, give information about what's around and about and make you feel part of the family.
What can i say about the breakfast? Awesome! Beautifully cooked, plenty of it and served by people who obviously enjoy what they do. Didn't have to eat again until tea time.
Plenty of choices for food or a drink in the evenings too, all in walking distance.
Well, could go on for ages about how much we enjoyed our stay but i'll just finish by saying a big thank you to all at the Malthouse for making our stay so enjoyable and if you're looking for a B&B in this area, whether you're going to Alton Towers or just exploring the beautiful countryside, look no further, you will not be disappointed!!!
Thanks again to all at the Malthouse.
