I stayed with friends & family in Dec/Jan 2014/15. I was in the front room. The radiator never came on & there is an open fireplace adding to the cold. It was freezing all the time & had to be vaccumed to get rid of spiders webs around the room that had not been cleaned for a long time. Neither had the en suite. It had not been cleaned around the toilet or behind the seat. Downstairs bathroom was very cold & water in shower did not drain fast enough. The place hasnt been decorated for years, there were faulty plugs in the lounge, the microwave door wouldn't close. All in all the place was a disgrace.
Stayed this new year, could be a fabulous place but needs new settees as most of them are broken. Microwave doesn't work and there's a note saying it's doesn't work and they're not replacing it. Lots of rooms with green walls because of the damp. We had to clean it ourselves when we got there as it was quite dirty and lots of cobwebs. Windows and doors in bedrooms had dead insects on them. Pulled one plug out and it fell to bits things in kitchen didn't work like tin opener, bottle opener, scissors didn't cut - the list is endless. Terrible shame really as it could be amazing.
I stayed here with around 10 friends back in October, we were visiting Alton Towers and needed a large place to stay. Ebenezer Chapel was perfect for us, it gave us all so much space, we didn't feel like we were treading on each others toes at all. The dining area was large enough to fit a lot of people and the kitchen was well equipped for large groups and there were more than enough sofas for everyone to sit together. The sauna was an extra bonus for us! The only downside was the on road parking, no allocated parking for all our cars but we never failed to park right outside so it didn't matter too much.
If you need somewhere for large groups then this is perfect. Lots of room for socialising but enough rooms that you can get away if needed! There is an extra, smaller sitting room upstairs also if needed. It is just by the river which is lovely and there is a pub just up the road which was great too.
