A really fantastic trip. Attention to detail was excellent. Soft furnishing excellent. Décor was in keeping with the original property. The Breakfast was very good. The staff got up early to cook it personally for a very early start. You don't get this style and service in a Premier Inn.

Many thanks for taking the time and making an effort to leave us a great review. Its is Gay's eye for detail and colour co-ordination that helps make the rooms look wonderful. Ron is the early bird and is up at 5am, so we start breakfasts from that time.

From the moment I walked through the door, the welcome was warm and relaxing. This establishment is first class throughout. If you require a base for touring around this part of the UK, please consider Colton House. You will not be disappointed. Luxury at very good rates. Hospitality that would make you feel like an ambassador. My only problem was I could only stay 1 night, maybe next time I can spend more time here. 10 out of 10. Ron`s eye for detail with the decor of the rooms and the quality furnishings is exceptional. Pure Excellence. Looking forward to my next visit.

Thanks for a wonderful review and appreciating that there is more than one side to the business. Gay has to spend hours/days/weeks going out to research all the retail establishments of the land in order to find the right materials/lights etc!!

Its like staying in the house you wish your parents had. They even waited up for me ... just like home. This is a lovely place, with great food, and exceptionally friendly hosts. A breakfast that will see you most definitely through the day is assured - and its local or from the garden. If you need somewhere for work this is better than any Travel/Sleep Inn Lodge rubbish. Ron is a legend. Long live Colton House.

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at. Fantastic quality and attention to detail. Also, a top quality breakfast. It is located in a very quiet little village. I had a stroll up the road to a great pub also for an evening meal, "Ye Old Dun Cow". Highly recommend this place, and would definitely stay again. Either on business as this trip was, or, for a nice weekend retreat with your nearest and dearest.

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts on your stay. Although Colton is a small village approx 600 people there is a vibrancy about, there is always something going on at the village hall, line dancing etc as well as at the two pubs. One of our regular guests joined one of the pubs teams and so had his name on the cup when they won that year.

I recently stayed at Colton House and received a very warm welcome. The house is beautiful and its in a lovely village. All staff were great and the breakfast was superb. There was free wifi available. Couldn't ask for more really. Highly recommended.

We do appreciate that you have left a great review for us and that you appreciated the house and village. There are some wonderful walks in the neighborhood, even if its only up to the pub and back.

Over the last 20 years I've stayed in all manner of places but this tops it. Found it by chance and from the time I booked to when I left it was spot on. Ron is a well mannered charming gent. Place is lovely, room spot on. He assisted with my bags to the room and gave me the info etc. breakfast was best English in many a year. Tea and toast was endless. Just sad that I arrived at 9pm and left at 9am. Trying to find a reason to stay again! Oh all this for £66 plus the Yorkist bar I noshed in the room!

This Guest House (should be a Hotel), is fantastic - Such a pleasant location and your stay will be made as personal as the Staff can make it.

From the very personal email you get before you arrive, to the "named" letter awaiting you in your room, when you arrive - the Managers were away when we stayed, but their good friend Tim and partner had everything under control. We were made to feel very welcome, even though we checked in just before 11pm (after spending the day in Alton Towers).

Breakfast was amazing Overall, this place should have cost twice as much. Next time we visit Alton Towers (we go very often), we will be staying here - attached is a picture taken from our bedroom window!!!

The bathroom furniture was very expensive looking - the finish to everything was immaculate - The sliding door to the shower was smooth (sue me!!)

About 30 minutes from Alton Towers for those of you that are thrill seakers....

We appreciate your time and effort in leaving us a review, and such a great one as well.

It is our aim to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible and we are glad that while we were away on holiday (our 40th wedding anniversary) you felt that this was still the case. We are pleased hat Tim and Susan looked after you to such a fantastic standard.

Both Alton Towers and Drayton Manor Park are only a short distance away and as you say well worth a visit - or two or more!

We look forward to meeting you.
