a lovely hostel in a great location for walking in Dovedale.
The rooms were far too warm and there were a lot of lights burning all night. Only stairs need that degree of illumination.
Excellent value, very clean and tidy, helpful staff, would stay again.
The grounds were well looked after and the christmas tree on entry was cosy. The room was basic with shortage cupboards for each person. The bed were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean.
There was a lot of dust under the beds and along the walls and we could feel the dust in our throat by the morning after a nights sleep.
The space in the room. Comfortable beds. Chance of getting a meal. Clean rooms
Tele in room and kettle for a drink would have been nice
If you are looking with somewhere a bit more interesting than a hotel and are on a budget this is a great place to stay. Nice lounge with table football, big screen and ping pong.
Great location, although it did take a while to find it! Set in stunning grounds. Food was excellent. Professional staff. Great place to stay if visiting Alton Towers.
Everything.. Much better than hotel
None. Everything was perfect
Great location , near Alton Towers and some great walks . Reasonably priced meals .
Kids thought it was like hogwarts
The helpful welcoming staff were great . The relaxed self catering system along with your cooked breakfast made our stay easy. The big social indoor space and the grounds enabled varied activity for our 27 people of 3 generations possible. The whole feel was child friendly.
The bunk beds although ideal for young families were awkward for older members of he family. Some choice of ordinary beds even if a little bit more expensive would be good.
Waking up to see the fantastic views
Location was beautiful as were the grounds.
The family room - the shower room was unclean - when you used the shower it left the whole bathroom including the floor soaking for hours. Found the food a little basic.
Loved this place from the history to the facilities to the very eco friendly set up. Staff were fantastic and great place to stay for Alton Towers. Highly recommend for value for money
Beautiful setting, phenomenal architecture, Facilities were excellent and rooms spotless. Staff were friendly and helpful. Close to Alton Towers,
We loved the building, it's location and facilities. We enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing first night.
On our second night our corridor was 'invaded' by a school group of extremely noisy teenage boys. There was just me and my 8 year old daughter (in a 2 bed room) and the school party. The noisiest part of all was when their teacher stood outside our bedroom door and gave a demonstration on how to put on a duvet cover. Apparently they had been told there was a young person present on their corridor but this didn't prevent the constant yelling and running up and down. Eventually at 10 pm when the noisy teacher returned I asked him to keep the noise down. We were woken at 7.30 by a similar level of noise which penetrated my ear plugs. The staff apologised, but could they not have organised accommodation so that an 8 year old child didn't have to share a corridor with a school party?
The welcome, the service, the food, the staff, the location, the building, the bar and the ambience. Certainly nothing like the youth hostels I visited some 40 years ago!
The metal rungs on the bung beds, hurt my feet!
The setting, the views the hostel facilities and family quad room was spacious and clean with ensuite toilet and shower.
Room 201 was near main door on stairs and was loud when residents were coming through and banging the door. Hostel was busy and slightly noisy until 11.30.
showers and accommodation generally very clean and well presented.
Noisy corridor after 10pm. The current 11pm quiet curfew is too late and was not enforced anyway when I stayed. Disturbed sleep every time someone comes in the room due to lack of simple maintenance items (squeaky hinges/clunking door closers/rattly door furniture). Free wifi for non-members would be good.
Beautiful location, stunning views, excellent value for money.
The location Staff value for money Service Bar
Shared accommodation Meal -evening
Good staff responses . Additional facilities like the italian garden tearooms
I was particularly impressed with the self Catering kitchen facilities both for it's cleanliness and access which proved extremely useful given the lateness of our arrival.
It would have been more useful if the self catering facilities was mentioned prior to out arrival, mainly because of the distance to the nearest shop as then we could have been better prepared.
The staff were wonderful, extremely helpful and very friendly. The location and surroundings were beautiful & the hall offered everything we needed for our short break
There was nothing we didn't like.
The location and surroundings was so beautiful we couldn't believe we were actually allowed to stay there! Rooms have everything you need. Basic but comfortable. Friendly staff. Good food reasonably priced and fantastic lounges and games room. To top it all very easy access to Alton Towers! We will definitely be back.
