My Stay at the bank house was excellent, I loved the themes of the rooms, the attention to detail is great, it's right on the doorstep of Alton towers and in the town of Alton just a 2 minute walk there is some nice restaurants. I had a full Staffordshire breakfast in the morning which had everything on it, I...

What a super review, thank you very much for your kind comments. We have obviously hit the spot with you and it would be our pleasure to welcome you back for another visit. Perhaps we could tempt you to try one of our 4 poster rooms next time (the whirlpool bath is a touch of luxury)

The Bank House is a lovely B&B only a couple of minutes drive from Alton Towers - and a far nicer option than staying in one of their hotels! This is our second stay and we'd certainly return. The rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated - both times we chose the Boudoir room as it's our favourite. Lynn and...

This was the best B&B we've stayed in. The children loved the themed rooms and they were clean and well equipped. The beds were really comfy and we all slept really well. The location was excellent for the theme park and to walk to local pubs. The en suite had a handy supply of toiletries and there was tea/coffe/hot chocolate...

This was our 3rd stay at the Bank House but our first since the rooms were restyled - we were not disappointed! There were six of us altogether and between us had the Marilyn Monroe room, two-tone and Boudoir. All the rooms were really nicely decorated and clean.
