Ok if you just need to get your head down for a night. We stayed in a caravan in April 2017. The caravan had mould in, the fence on the stairs going up to the caravan was broken and when we tried to open the kitchen window the handle fell off. The heating went off late at night so we...

We've recently stayed here in our touring caravan as we had a day at Alton Towers and thought this would be ideal location and a little cheaper than the caravan and camping club site the star. We were totally confused by this place to be honest. We stayed 2 nights. The owners are so very lovely and I can't fault...

Went to this lovely place when going to alton towers we stopped the night before with our 4 kids. Brilliant place, lovely food and very family friendly. Loved our room and owners were very helpful even getting us a lovely caravan in short notice. Would highly recommend a visit 😀😀

Stayed here for one night recently to attend a bash at a nearby pub. Realised our mistake straight away when we entered our cold musty and dull " family room" The owner turned on the radiators which then went of again half an hour later. Told him that I would like a warm room on my return and guess what.........

We visited recently for a function when a server had made an honest mistake. We went to the bar to rectify this but the landlord was unable to either apologise for the mistake and then rectify it, instead asking us to take our coats and leave. I can see why the recent reviews are very negative as this was by...

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Alton towers. We were greeted with friendly staff who promptly checked us in. We ate in restaurant the first night and all of the group enjoyed their meals and very reasonably priced. Before going to Alton towers we enjoyed breakfast which again was well priced and filled us up before our long day....

Disgusting service from this hotel! Called on the morning to cancel my booking as have a poorly child at home and unfortunately had to cancel our trip. My daughter has a severe case of chicken pox which I assume would not be wanted at his hotel to pass onto all of his guests. I fully expected to lose my deposit,...

We travelled to the cross inn late on the Friday evening. When we arrived it was a very friendly atmosphere. We stayed in a caravan/mobile home which was amazing. Everything you needed inside. Breakfast was lovely and just a shame we never managed to get an evening meal as fully booked. Would highly recommend if travelling up long distance to...

Booked this room for me and my son as a pitstop for our 2 day visit to Alton Towers. After searching online, this place seemed to tick all the boxes, good review score, close proximity to the theme park and a reasonable price. HOWEVER....... when we arrived, we were shown to our room which had a damp musty smell as...

Visited for a single night after a day at Alton Towers. Quite close to the park (when driving) so very useful. We stayed in a double room which was pretty small and basic but met our needs. The bed was comfy enough and we had a shower, tea making facilities. The best element of the hotel is the bar/restaurant. Really...
