“First time stay but not the last”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I was recommended to stay here last week by a colleague and what an experience which is not to be missed. The house is steeped in history with the owner happy to talk in depth over its restoration.

the whole house is full of an amazing atmosphere, with exceptional bedrooms fitted out to the highest standard. if this was in London it would rival the best known establishments.

Don't miss the opportunity to stay here.

Room Tip: Al of the rooms were excellent I stayed in Pauls room, which had a fantastic view.

Its always good when someone stays through a recommendation and also likes us, many thanks for a great review. When we first moved in I was interested in who had lived here to the extent that some years later I did a history course at Keele University to learn how to find out more.

We stayed in the castle howard room. It was beautiful. The room was immaculate. I can't give the owner ron higher praise. He was a fantastic host. We were made to feel very at home.
I would recommend a stay here to anyone, you would not regret it. We will definitely be returning.

Many thanks for a great review, we are so glad that you like The Castle Howard Room, it is modeled after Lady Georgiana's Room at Castle Howard.
As we always use flame retardant fabrics it took some 5/6 years to find the right colour and style of material, a mix of modern and traditional. Sourcing the feathers that went on top of the bed was interesting, hadn't realised that there were so many different areas that feathers were used in.

Me and my GF have just stayed here for valentines night....... arriving around 7 pm after a long day at work we were swiftly shown to our room (Paul's room) by Ron the owner .
Ron (who is lovely.... ) showed us into the room, showed us how the shower worked, lights, and mini bar .....
The mini bar was stocked very well...... And have to say better than many other hotels we've stayed in.
At Colton house you are in a very homely place and really do feel at home the moment you walk through the door. We certainly did.
We were cooked a beautiful dinner washed down with a lovely merlot ........
A very good nights sleep....... And fabulous breakfast...... With all local produce being used.
We will certainly return in the summer to take advantage if the beautiful garden and local walks.
We loved this place and can see why it's won so many awards, as nothing is too much trouble!!

Room Tip: Our room (Paul's) was fab...! Front facing on the top floor, but then with the quality and pers...

Thanks for taking the time to give us such a wonderful review, we do appreciate the feedback and thought that goes into writing a review. We have a mini bar in order to help people have a happier stay, the prices are similar to your corner shop, and not the normal high hotel rates.
The walks are great round about as many are alongside the canal, which is then easy walking as its flat!

me and my girlfriend stayed at Colton House last saturday and what a great stay we had. The four poster room is stunning and the food was great. A really warm welcome and our host was very friendly and made us feel comfortable and at home. I would highly recommend a stay here its so quiet and i could have slept all day in the bed.

Room Tip: go for the four poster room......definately

Many thanks for your first review and a great review as well. We can confirm that it is sometimes a bit of a job to get out of the beds as they are all so comfortable, some people have missed breakfast as a result.
We feel that one of the most important parts of a B&B is the bed, most of the beds are made by Relyon and all have a high count quality Egyptian cotton sheets to give that luxury feel, we are so glad that you felt that you had a restful stay.

Love this hotel - you can't beat the personal service and facilities you get here! My 3rd visit last weekend and many more to come. A real home from home - should be 5 star not 4!! Love the real luxury you get and everywhere is so clean - the facilities are second to none with each individually designed room having wifi, mini bar, individual room heating and extras like bed turned down in the eve and a choccie on your pillow! Love the fact you can choose what time you want breakfast and evening meal and Ron is a great cook/host - with lots of knowledge on where to go.

Can't wait to visit again and I'm sure it won't be too long! Thank you Gay and Ron for yet another relaxing and luxurious stay. Debbie B

Wow another great review, many thanks for taking the time and making an effort to review us again. We do try hard to tailor the stay to individuals likes and wants and that is why we will undertake doing breakfasts and evening meals at any time you would like to have them. We believe that this means that you have an enjoyable time and it is not just a place to rest your head.

Great service, spotless room and a wonderful breakfast -- couldn't ask for more! We had the four poster room with the enormous tv -- really comfortable bed, and fresh milk to go with the complementary tea and coffee. The village is also very picturesque.

We didn't know what time we would be arriving so didn't have dinner `on site' but walked to Ye Olde Dun Cow (about 15 minutes through the village) and had an excellent evening meal.

I'd certainly recommend this very highly.

Many thanks for your great review of your experiences in The Four Poster Room. Yes it does have a big Smart TV (60") this can connect to the Internet so that you could watch say, Love Films or Netflicks etc. depending on the account that you have.
We hate the little UHT milks that are often found in hotels and believe that a jug of fresh milk is what you would have at home.

What a fantastic place, honest, genuine service in a fabulous setting. Recommended by good friends we booked online and were emailed straight away by the owners to make sure everything was in place for our visit.

Greeted by name on arrival the personal service continued throughout.

Can't recommend enough.

Certainly will be visiting again
