“Don't stay here if you want a good nights sleep!!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Ideally located within 5 minutes drive from Alton Towers and a fantastic breakfast - that's it for the good points!!

We were 2 adults with 3 children who had spent a busy day at Alton Towers during Scarefest last October and were looking forward to a good nights sleep as we returning to Alton Towers the day after - this was not to be as the DJ/karaoke carried on until well past midnight (midweek) and you could hear everything, word for word as if he was actually in the bedroom with us. To add insult to injury he could be clearly heard saying "I hope the family in the family room directly above here aren't having too much trouble getting to sleep!" which was met to a round of raucous laughter.

Prior to booking the stay I had spoken to Margaret on the phone and she seemed extremely pleasant and friendly, however, when we arrived we were ignored and left waiting almost 10 minutes to check in. After that Margaret barely spoke more than a few words to us - not the lovely welcoming lady that had drawn us to staying here after reading good reviews.

The decor in the pub and the rooms is very dated/drab and the whole place could do with sprucing up - if only for a lick of paint!

I would definitely NOT stay here again or recommend it if you are expecting a good nights sleep despite it's close proximity to Alton Towers.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay in the pub if you are wanting a good nights sleep - IMPOSSIBLE with the DJ continuing un...

I call Peakstones Inn my second home! Margaret, the owner is extremely kind and polite and helps with any enquiries you may have. The breakfast is delicious and ditto to the evening meals. Accommodation is very good and the pub is gorgeous!

Love it, thank you Margaret XXX

Stayed in one of the chalets with our two boys aged 12 and 10 for 3 nights in the Easter Holidays. Great location to Alton Towers and not too far from the Peak District and the caves and walking that it has to offer. The owner, Margaret, is a star. Very helpful, friendly and down to earth. We had a problem with our heating and hot water the first night and Margaret did her upmost to sort it out. Boys loved the breakfast room full of teddies and left a soft toy pig there, won from Alton Towers, to add to her collection. Would stay there again.

Stayed here a few years previous and really enjoyed it. Decided to come back a few years later. It was ok the second time around but could do with a bit of an uplift. Things are looking a bit tired. The owner is lovely. And the breakfast is good. Didnt have an evening meal we found a different restaurant as a couple meals on the menu they didnt have. Overall tho a nice cheap b&b if your wanting to stay close to alton towers

This B&B is a great choice for anyone visiting Alton Towers. A couple of minutes from the theme park, friendly staff and excellent value for money. We stay here regularly and usually in the caravans - which are great. The pub is very homely and great for a cheeky pint on an evening after a long day at the park. Definitely recommend this place to anybody.
