Me and my girlfriend stayed over after going to the races in Uttoxeter. Was everything you can ask for from a B&B. Lovely owners, nice rooms and a great breakfast! Will stay again whether for Alton Towers or Uttoxeter which is only down the road.

We really liked a lot of things about bank house. Rooms were very clean. Bed extremely comfortable. Quiet room at night. Shower powerful and hot. Breakfast large, tasty and lots of choice. Very close to the theme park. Parking just outside the front door in their own small car park. Lynn and her husband were very friendly... However there were...

We absolutely love your review and in a way would have forecast your comments. Thank you for your honesty. I'm sure you can appreciate that one night stays are a quick churn for us and we are unable to offer a later breakfast for this reason. The master of the house does tend to Basil Fawlty and the mistress does...
