Lanes Guest House
Ranked #1 of 8 Uttoxeter B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Just returned from a weekend at Alton Towers. Stayed in a superb B&B called The Lanes in Uttoxeter. Read the previous reviews, and couldn't agree more with them all. Jan made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Showed us around her beautiful house and we instantly felt at home. The main bedroom we stayed in was wonderful - spacious clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was also of a high standard, good choice and cooked very well. We had a really relaxing time in this lovely B&B, and would not hesitate in recommending it. Chris and Gail.

Thank you very much for a wonderful night's stay. A wonderful homely feel to the house as soon as we walked in. Clean and modern. Jan and Chris are really friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble. An excellent breakfast, thank you Jan!!! Would thoroughly recommend this place and will be back.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Lanes B&B whilst we visited Scarefest at Alton Towers. On arrival we were given a tour by Jan & Chris of their immaculate spacious home and were shown to our double bedroom with en-suite. Chris offered to cook us an evening meal and also told us about the local restaurants which were only a short walk away. We decided to eat out at Frankie & Bennie's as we did not want to inconvenience Jan & Chris by cooking us a meal at nine o'clock at night. On return from the restaurant and pub we were offered to use the hot tub which is awesome and well appreciated after a 4 hour drive. Our bedroom did not disappoint and had everything we needed and more. I would recommend for the the few pounds extra to request the king size room if it is available. On the second night my wife jumped in the hot tub again whilst I had a full body massage from Jan which was absolutely amazing and made me sleep like a baby all night. Both mornings we were cooked a full English breakfast to order by both Jan & Chris and both were equally perfect and very filling. The B&B is ideally situated for Alton Towers & the racecourse.

Thank you so much Chris & Jan for welcoming us into your stunning house and making us feel at home. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Dave & Leah xxx

I stayed here for 2 nights as my Hydro Fitness Solutions water fitness teacher training course was 10m. drive away and I wanted to make it my 'special' and 'relaxing' break too. I definitely made the right choice after reading all these wonderful reviews. The week before my husband and I did a practice run and Chris and Jan invited us in for a cup of coffee to view the premises. On arrival I received a very warm welcome and coffee. The breakfast is delicious and also the 3-course homemade dinner by Chris the Chef was 10/10. The most impressing part of the weekend was the fact Chris and Jan opened a bottle of champers/bubbly to celebrate the fact that I had passed my aqua teacher course that day and I needed to relax and unwind. The single room is just like being at home, very cosy with a very fresh and clean bathroom next door. The extras are nice too, with a delicious selection of biscuits, drinks and little personal extras you would not even get in a 5* hotel. I would definitely stay here again, hopefully with my husband next time if we are visiting Alton towers. I am also recommending it to everybody I know including my aqua tutor for his next students who yesterday travelled all the way from the Lake District and London. Jan also sells some exclusive crystals that are worth looking at alongside her massages. Thank you so much Chris and Jan. xx

Stayed here for one night after visiting Alton Towers before moving on to the rest of our honeymoon. Jan and Chris happily met us with our bags leading us to their amazing home. They were so friendly they even gave us a lift to the local pub....Breakfast was fantastic the house was very clean and could not fault them in any way. Would most definately stay here again and recommed to anyone who is visiting the area. Best b&b we have ever stayed in and really lovely people.
