We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were so kind and even decorated our breakfast table with Happy Birthday as it was my LO's second birthday. The rooms were superb and the Halloween decor were fantastic. Will definitely be staying here again

Sabrina. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. It's great to know you enjoyed Helen's cooked breakfast and our Halloween decorations too. We'll be doing the same (or better!) next year, so hopefully we'll see again :-) Phil and Helen

Midweek stay whilst visiting Alton Towers. The place is immaculate, only a 5 minute journey from the theme park, there's a pub down the road called the star which is great for your evening meal. The laurels is extremely welcoming, very peaceful and serve a great breakfast!

It's great to know you found The Laurels spotless. We do spend a huge amount of time making sure things are exactly as we want them. The Star is a great place for an evening meal, so we're always happy to recommend them. We do strive to provide our guests with a home from home feel, so we're happy you...

Clean b&b, lovely cooked breakfast, house decorated beautifully for spooky themed Halloween fun. We even had little Halloween themed biscuits in our room which my daughter enjoyed, would recommend as very close to Alton towers .

Thanks for your review. We're delighted to hear you found The Laurels as we would hope. We do like to make a special effort over Halloween, dressing the public areas with some spooktacular decorations. Gerrard, our animated spooky butler seemed to be a real hit with our guests! Phil and Helen

The Laurels offers a home from home experience; clean, warm and welcoming is how we would describe it. Phil and Helen our hosts are excellent at what they do and what they provide, nothing is too much trouble. We chose room 8 which has a four poster bed, views across the valley and a beautiful en suite shower room. The...

A very friendly, comfortable and quiet B&B with good car parking and within 5mins of Alton Towers. The room was very clean, modern and owner couldn't do enough for you, the breakfast was very tasty, fresh and cooked to individual requirements. Only one little thing I'd change would be the one hour breakfast slot between 8-9, apart for that 10/10,...

Thankyou for your review. It's great to know you found The Laurels exactly as we'd hoped you would :-) It's a shame you weren't too keen on our breakfast times. We always say our guests are free to come down at 9 if they want to get up later, but we do need a lot of time after breakfast service...

Lovely stay after a long day at Alton Towers, nice decor and very clean. Phil was very kind and informative and we popped down the local pub for a quiet drink without the kids. Lovely little touches that made our stay amazing like little ginger bread men, plenty of towels and all rooms with en suites.
