We spent one night at the Malthouse B&B on our recent trip to England. I seldom rate excellents but am struggling think of any negatives about this place. The owner was very nice and hepful, the room was fabulous and the bathroom very clean. We had spent the previous night at a very ordinary B&B on a main road in...

Me and the boyfriend absolutely loved The Malthouse B&B. We stayed atthe Malthouse B&B on a friday night because of convenience, we were visiting Alton Towers the next day and thought it would be good idea to wake up close to the park on the day. So I wasn't looking for anything amazing, just value for money, comfy and clean....

Delighted that these visitors found everything at our B&B was clean, tidy and to their liking. Although we are in the village of Alton our property is not a farm and to our knowledge never was, our house is just a big place that had stables at one time. Wonder if these guests were in The Stables Annexe or may...

Just returned from a two night stay at the Malthouse. From the minute we arrived we received a warm welcome from our hosts, who were always on hand with advice on directions and where to eat. The room was immaculate and had lots of lovely extras ~ toiletries, yummy biscuits, plus delicious breakfasts, cooked to our tastes! It was a...

Went there and we was treated like part of the family. 10/10 for everything. Can't say anything negative. Especially seeing as were from london I can't stress enough how great it was here. The local pubs are awesome as well. They look old and dated from the outside but when you go inside its completely different and very nice. I'll...

Booked this directly with the owners. Nothing was too much trouble. We had said that we would possibly be arriving around midday on our first day, and they said that would be fine, even if the room wasn't ready we could leave our stuff and they would give us our key to return later. En route, we were actually going...

What a lovely caring family these folk were! It was a pleasure to look after them. We were sorry that one of the boys was poorly during overnight. Being unwell is not good when your at home and even worse when your away. There we go, sometimes life does not go smoothly. Under the circumstances this family made the best...
