“Great stay for Alton Towers trip”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We booked this guesthouse for a one night stay as we travelled up for 2 day trip to Alton Towers. When we arrived we were met by the manager who was very helpful. We booked a family room. The room was more than adequate for our stay. There were twin beds, a double and a single. The beds were very comfy! The hotel was only 15 mins from Alton Towers which is why we choose it, and was pleased with our stay. There is a local pub and other restaurants close by so didn't have to walk to far for food! The breakfast in the morning was fab! My husband went for the full fry up and the kids ordered bacon sarnies! We were made to feel very welcome. The only downside was the shower wasn't great, so didn't spend too long in there! I would however recommend this hotel to others.

My Granddaughter and I with our 2 yorkies were welcomed on arrival by the owner Jim " with a big smile " We were shown to our room " no1 " The twin room was spotlessly clean and cozy , with fluffy towels on the beds and nice touches like sweets and biscuits. " not dog biscuits " We had the full English cooked to order by the chef " Andy " and the full English it was. It set us up for the day at Churnet valley railway, for the 1940s weekend. All in all Excellent value for money. We would recommend to anyone. Once again Thanks to Jim and the staff.....Glen.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in room 4. The atmosphere was pleasant, the rooms were clean and the staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on both mornings,which was served quickly and with no hassle.
I would definitely recommend Oldroyd Guest House as a place to stay especially for those travelling to visit Alton Towers as it is only a short drive away as well as having nearby access to public transport and while evening meals are not provided, there are many pubs, restaurants and a supermarket only a short walk away.
We will certainly be visiting again.

We stayed at this B & B for 2 nights, we had the four poster bed room. Very clean & tidy B & B throughout. the staff were all very pleasant & breakfast was lovely, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We also had some family members stay who had the family room, also very clean & tidy. A further family member was staying elsewhere but he was allowed to join us for breakfast at no extra cost. Cannot fault anything about this Bed & Breakfast. Thank You very much.

Room Tip: our room, although on the front was perfect.

Booked a night at the oldroyd guest house as a weekend break with the view of visiting alton towers. We were welcomed on arrival and shown round our room and the spa, both of which were spotlessly clean and tidy. I would highly recommend booking the spa for the extra £10 is great value. A good breakfast the next morning set us up for a day at Alton Towers which is only a 20 minute drive away.

What a Cracking place, a real gem. Lovely friendly staff and a nice warm greeting on a cold and wet night. But the location just couldn't be better, only a 5 minute walk from the Uttoxeter Racecourse and only 200 yards from the town .. We stayed in a lovely double room that was well set out and all the little touches like sweets, biscuits and free Wi Fi made it all seem very special, we had a lovely en-suite bathroom and lots of fluffy white towels. The bed was just sooo comfy we had a struggle to get up but we were glad that we did as the full English Breakfast was just fantastic.. There is lots of free parking and the Gardens here are a real treat. They even have a Spa in a Swiss style chalet, Jim the owner showed us around and we shall certainly book to use it next time we go to Uttoxeter

We will certainly be back

I'm turning 40 and have a few things on my to do list. My plan was to go to Alton Towers on my own so I can go on all the rides without compromise. Since moving to London I don't need my car, so I'm selling. This is one last trip to remember :)
I was greeted very warmly and shown around. Everything was explained..you know all the small things you forget to ask. When you travel alone there is nobody to check with. My room was more like a mini chalet with a front door and on suite. It was warm,cosy and pretty.
The location is good and I went to the town (5 mins walk) for dinner. Lots of choice of restaurants and then I went ice skating (10 mins walk) next to a 24 tesco. There is a big Brantano shoe brand shop so I got a few bargains.
I watched the flat screen tv up on the wall from my bed which was luxury! Eastenders until I dropped off at 1am. Up early for breakfast (included) which was filling and well presented. The owners are friendly and there is attention to detail.. I loved the pictures on the wall..
It was a lovely much needed break and I would recommend a stay here. Hurry though as it was full last night :)

Room Tip: There is no fitness or pool...the website wouldn't let me remove them My room is 14 and a kind...
