The hotel was run by very friendly staff who met all our needs. The room was basic, but clean. The towels were fine, there were coffee making facilities and a small wardrobe space. We arrived just after the kitchen had closed for evening meals, but the staff were able to prepare a lovely pizza shortly afterwards so issue here. Breakfast...

Pitches on caravan park & camping field need upgrading, shower & toilet blocks left a lot to be desired, desperately need an upgrade too,the floor was wet all of the time in both. ? Leaky pipes. Considering it cost £27 per night expected more. No wifi as advertised, only in the bar area, which wasn't very good. On the bright...

Was meant to be staying here two nights but after one night we left more then willing to lose the money paid for the second night. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is alright and reasonable in price and that's about all the good I could say about the place. We were shown our room on arrival...

Arrived at hotel early evening after a very busy day at Alton Towers. Had a lovely welcome. Very friendly staff. We had booked a table for food at 8.00 and was asked if we could give our order straight away because they were very busy. We were then shown to our room and it pretty much went downhill from there....

Stayed here 1 night while visiting Alton towers theme park. It was a very basic room and perhaps a little over priced, but it' was expected due to the close proximity to Alton towers. Lovely owners very welcoming. I would definitely stay again if I was in the area

Decided we wanted to see a bit of the Peak District. Location of The Cross Inn was nice a few miles from Leek and a few miles from Ashbourne. On arrival the staff member who took us to the tent area was nice and friendly. Showers were ok - 50p to have one is a bit cheeky considering we were...
