We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us in our Marilyn room. Your lovely comments are really appreciated because all the staff try to offer a good service and we all feel well rewarded when we have such generous feedback. We do hope we see you again, perhaps you could try the Boudoir next time.

Welcoming and homely atmosphere , the owner is lovely and the Marilyn Munroe room are fantastic . Will definitely be back to check out there other rooms. The location was perfect for us as we are going to Alton towers and that's only a 5 minute drive away ( a mile ).

At last somewhere that accommodates a family of 5! Excellent accommodation and so close to Alton towers (5 mins drive). As soon as we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Our room (The Flinstones theme) was perfect for the 5 of us. Plus the breakfast was awesome!

We are a group of 12 visiting Alton Towers and we stayed for 1 night at Bank House. The location is very convenient, just opposite to the shuttle bus stop. Lynn and her husband was really helpful accommodating all of us. And they are really a nice couple! The rooms have different themes, so if you want to find a theme hotel but find it too expensive to live inside the park, this would definitely be your first choice! Btw there's a range of breakfast to choose from and I personally really love the toast! XD

We stayed at the Bank House for my husband’s birthday in between 2 days at Alton Towers. The room was fantastic. Immaculately clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We stayed in the Two tone room which had a really comfy king size bed, fluffy pillows, power shower and mini-fridge. The hotel was really close to Alton Towers and also had a local bus that stopped right opposite the front door if you don’t drive. It also has its own private car park attached.

We had already planned our evening meal but the owners told us about a few other options too which was really useful. The Bank House is also two minutes walk from the Royal Oak gastro pub (voted Number 1 restaurant in Alton on Tripadvisor) which was perfect as we could then both have a few drinks as we did not have to drive out for dinner.

Breakfast was scrummy and lots to choose from, including veggie options and as much toast and cereal as you wanted. We both opted for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which was delicious and plentiful.

Maurice and Lynn were both really friendly and made us feel very welcome. They clearly (and genuinely!) cared about their guests having a great stay. We are already planning our next stay and would most certainly recommend it to anyone!

Thanks again Lynn and Maurice!

Booked 2 days at Alton Towers so needed a one night stay at a B & B. The Bank House was only about a mile away so it was ideal. The accommodation is fantastic, we stayed in the Marilyn Monroe themed room with jacuzzi bath. Had a wonderful nights sleep, the bed was so comfy. Lynn & Maurice are amazing! They are very friendly & even told us where was best to go for our evening meal. The breakfast was excellent & set us up for the day. Can't wait for our next visit.
