Arrived and drove straight past lol, The sign for Bank House is on the wall in the opposite direction I came from, Parked absolutely fine.
Greeted by Lynn, very friendly and bubbly lady. Showed us to our room which was the Marolyn room, on walking in the bed and the Marolyn decor did give you the wow factor, but if I am honest the decor was not to my taste. I would have loved to see white walls rather then offish red with white flowers. Im no interior designer but I thought it clashed a bit. Lynn gave us alot of information on where to eat etc. Nice to see hot choc in with the tea making facilities. Bathroom spotless! (apart from a big scary spider.. in the eyes of my son lol) Big spa bath which my son loved! After settling in we went to the Bulls Head Inn down the road for an evening meal, very nice, headed back to Banks House, tried to get to bed early as we were off to Alton Towers next morning, soundproofing isnt excellent.. we could hear talking downstairs, doors slamming (fire doors).. At around 9.30ish pm, Lynn tried to check some guests into our room, good job I double locked the door! lol She couldnt apologise enough bless her, I found it funny. Shortly after 11pm Bank House was silent, fell asleep woke up at 7.45am to talking downstairs, shower was nice. Went downstairs for breakfast and it was lovely, came out really quick, nice and hot. Service great. Everything was well organised and in its place. Packed and got out of the car park with ease, turned around in the car park as I was the only left.
Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. If I had to mention a negative then it would be that it could do with a quick hoover under the bed lol. Other then that PERFECT. Would highly recommend and would definetly visit again but maybe try the Ska room next time as that is more 'me'
