We stayed at The Malthouse B&B in Alton on 28/29 October with our two young daughters for a 2day break at the Alton Towers theme and waterpark. On arrival we were warmly greeted and the girls had a real fuss made which they loved. Our room was the safari theme room and had a few toy animals on the beds that the girls loved! The room and ensuite were very clean as hoped (based on the reviews I had read previously before booking) and we were very happy. The breakfast was one of the best we have had - a full English that wasn't dripping in fat and didn't make you feel sick a while later! On our first night we went to the Bulls Head which was ok. I was expecting a little warmer welcome but I suppose when you have a double buggy to collapse and get in/store behind our chairs and then ask for a high chair its a big ask! The service was ok but we didn't get a menu and probably would still be there if we hadn't got up and asked for one. The food was nice but overall I wasn't as impressed as other reviews have said. Based on this experience we decided to have dinner in the theme park on our second night. Staying at the Resort hotels is probably best if the cost doesn't spiral into silly money (over half term one room was £265 per night)as you can have a meal and evening entertainment under one roof. However, the breakfast is much better at The Malthouse and with two small children is better to be served at your table rather than queue up and have the kids whinge while you're gone! On our next visit we will cetainly consider booking the Malthouse again. Thank you for a lovely stay.
