Stayed here for school Easter break as there is so much to do in this area .... Alton Towers, Trentham Gardens, The various Potteries (obviously !), Monkey Forest, etc. As title shows, this was our 3rd stay at this hotel and the reason we keep going back is because it's simply a very well-run & pleasant place to be !!! The rooms are very clean & very well serviced by friendly & efficient housekeeping staff. There's no point in me saying too much about the leisure facilities as every other review does .... they're there if you want to use them ! There is free wifi throughout entire hotel and it's DECENT wifi at that. Breakfast is most definitely worth getting yourself downstairs for ..... loads of choice with a really good quality of food served ..... and all in a pleasant environment !! Location of hotel is great for families with children ... Alton Towers is only 17 miles, Trentham Gardens (a great day-out if sun is shining !) is only about 8 miles but right on the doorstep is 10 Pin Bowling, Cinema, etc - there is Pizza Hut, Frankie & Benny's & McDonalds all within 100 yards of each other and if you want some 'supplies' there is a Morrisons supermarket 50 yards further ! Also within a 10 minute walk is a Brewers Fayre & Toby Carvery (which is located on a small marina-type area with Canal Boats tied-up .... a lovely place to sit & relax !). We stay in many hotels throughout the year and this one keeps drawing us back ....... HIGHLY recommend a stay if you're in this area ! less
