We arrived at Uttoxeter train station and to our pleasant surprise was asked if we'd like to be picked up! We also got lifts to Alton Towers twice which again was a very pleasant surprise! We had a lovely stay despite spending most of our time at Alton Towers, Jan and Cris were very kind and generous to us, it felt brilliant to be valued like people instead of customers. Our room was impeccable, it had all essentials we needed and was very clean, warm and cosy! It's safe to stay we would 100% stay at Lanes B and B again and we recommend it to anyone 10 out of 10 from us!
Love, Dania and Reece!

I was working in the North West and stayed overnight with Jan & Chris.
The rooms are very clean, the evening meal was great and I had a very relaxed evening and good nights sleep, followed by a great english breakfast. The rooms are modern and clean and everything is provided for a great stay. Jan & Chris will do anything to provide a good stay and it was much better than staying in a boring hotel and it felt like being at home.

Room Tip: For most hotels, pic a room at the front, well away from the kitchens fans and waste collection area.

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.

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
