We had a relaxing stay in this beautiful hotel, where - within all guidelines - the staff were attentive and helpful. We were on business, but at the end of each day, we were able to sit in the picturesque garden by the canal, enjoying the scenery and bird life. You would not find a better place to stay in Staffordshire. Highly recommend for a work or leisure stay.

The venue was very well organised in terms of Covid safety. I dealt with two members of staff- both of whom were extremely friendly and helpful. The lady on reception in the afternoon and the gent (Who I think may be the owner) in the evening. Obviously at the moment restaurants are not an option so take out food was the option. In suppport of this we were supplied cutlery and crockery (spotlessly clean) and an area of the hotel that was suitably socially distanced in layout for me to eat. In normal times I am sure this great service would be reflected in normal times operations.

The Moat House is a fine family owned hotel and is well suited for business and pleasure alike. The rooms are well equipped, tidy and clean. The team are always willing to make your stay comfortable, including the CEO of the group Chris Lewis.

We stayed here in January following a funeral. The manager was superb, so kind and considerate. We felt so welcome and relaxed and it made a difficult time, so much better. The rooms were large and clean and the bed was really comfortable. None of us wanted to leave the next day and we have all said we will return when this is all over.

My stay at The Moat House was thoroughly enjoyable, where I had such a pleasant and relaxing time over a period of several weeks. The rooms are very comfortable, quiet, very clean and well presented, in an excellent hotel, set in such a scenic and tranquil location. I received an exemplary and consistently commendable level of service at all times during my stay. The hotel is providing accommodation for key workers, with easy access to the M6 and a few miles from Stafford. Takeaway meals are available over the weekend and can be pre-booked, as I did when I checked out on a Friday, ready for my evening meal on a Monday evening. A very good take away breakfast is provided, with a nice selection of morning snacks and drinks. I also highly recommend The Dog & Doublet in Sandon, which is another fantastic pub and hotel that I’ve had the pleasure of staying at. Sadly it remains closed during the lockdown. My personal thanks to Chris and his team of beyond amazing, friendly, polite, helpful and professional staff. I very much look forward to staying at both hotels in the future. May I wish you all a very Happy New Year, Stay safe and well, Steve
