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.
Loved the location
The ridulus price of food. Had a terrible night as we were by the stock door so there was a lot of bangs and crashes during the night. Also staff members stood at the bottom of the stairs and had loud conversions/phone calls at 23:00+ which is unacceptable.
The view and very friendly staff
Lovely location Very relaxing
Venue is everything. We went here as part of a two day cycle ride with kids 6 and 10 and it made the trip!
Location close to Alton Towers Beautiful buildings and grounds Relaxed and informal Self Catering choice as well Friendly and helpful staff
That I didn't have more time there
I love the location, the building was ok.
The facilities were craving with a good touch.the matresses were over used and i think needs replacements. The door lock cant lock when your inside.
Rooms were simple but very clean and comfortable
Although paid for wifi struggled to get it to work
too many beds in one room
Location, food, service, facilities, friendliness of staff, packed lunch!
Room too small to accommodate 8 adults - 6 would be better. In particular, I was in room 303, which is directly above a staff room. The noise was a real problem and on Sunday night (24th August) there seemed to be a party going on in there that was so noisy we had to complain about it. This is definitely a problem that needs addressing (i.e: soundproofing) as I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned before.
In peak district, beautiful scenery Great price Good facilities
No mobile signals
Location, amazing building and surroundings, self catering facilities, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and comfy beds. Overall great experience, negative comments are very minor and would not stop me from recommending the hostel or returning.
Food was not as good as expected. Having seen the sample menu, I was expecting a little more than food straight from the freezer! Shower heads aren't very good, water basically dribbles out. Wifi only available in reception area.
