A one night stay was not nough. From our arrival we experienced a very friendly welcome. We asked about how we would get in as we were visiting relatives for our family Christmas get together. Ron told us tiWe were shown to our room by the owner, who then explained how the shower operated and told us whete everything was in the room. It was a very comfortable bed with lovely cotton bedding. Read more

From our arrival to our departure we were made most welcome with no request being too much trouble. Read more
Everything was perfect…..and I am generally very fussy!! Read more
From the second you walk in the door, the wonderfully friendly welcome by Ron and Gay makes you smile, and the impressive building gives you the feeling you're in for a treat. Kind, friendly, homely and relaxed, even for only an overnight stay it was bliss. The small touches, such as a personalised welcome letter, and comprehensive local guide were excellent, and the grounds are beautifully kept and a welcome retreat. Read more
Calm on weekends, too. No wedding parties ! Read more
Stayed overnight as we were attending Ironman Staffs 70.3 the following day Read more
Sorry about the footprints, will have words with the cleaners, we show all guests how to use the shower.
The confirmation email which you replied to asking for a duvet, points out we are a B&B, and that we could provide an evening meal with prior notice, which we did for the friends you were with. So sorry about the OJ I am sure if you had asked again we would have provided it however it was a very busy morning providing 12 breakfasts at 4.30am for guests that needed to get away by 4.45am.
We arrived on Saturday evening to be met by Ron the owner and felt immediately at home.. a funny entertaining chap who keeps on top of his hotel Read more
Luxurious Read more
The hosts at Colton house clearly go to a lot of effort to make their guests stay as pleasant as possible. This can be seen in implementation of many suggestions by previous guests on how to improve their service. Colton house are advocates of green tech with electric car charging station and led bulbs. They have won many awards for service, food and other awards, noemi of which I could dispute during my stay. This coupled with a long and interesting house history made for a pleasurable stay Read more
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for a great review. The advice you gave us on LEDs will certainly help us make a savings in the future.
A short 2 night stay in order to explore Lichfield and the National Memorial Arboretum. Read more
Thanks for taking the time in order to give us a great review. Its not everyone that can achieve so much sightseeing in a day.
My sister and I booked Colton House on line, it was one of four places we stayed that week and was far and away the best. A very friendly welcome from Ron, we both had immaculate rooms very individual and with everything and more in them a person could want. There is a beautiful garden to look out at. Read more
Thank you for a wonderful review, we do understand that people do like fresh milk for their tea/coffee. The garden is just beginning to flower with primroses, and a large variety of bulbs.
Two nights in Coachmans View twin room.
Spotlessly clean, thoughtful touches, such as fresh milk and chocolates left on pillows.
Quality and stylish soft furnishings.
Colton House clearly has been a labour of love for the owners Ron and Gay. The house has been renovated with incredible attention to detail to maintain and restore original features whilst encompassing the expectations of the todays traveller.
Sampled the breakfasts and dinners, surprisingly extensive and varied choices. Read more
Wow thanks for a great review, Ron's especially glad that you liked the skill and expertise he showed whilst making the crepes.
The house itself is very attractive, and my room was pleasant and well-equipped.
I only saw one member of staff (the owner, Mr Lawrence) over the three days I was there, who seemed to be doing everything himself, from cooking to cleaning. Read more
Jackie went straight to her room only leaving for meals & go to a wedding. She never saw the cleaners as they could not get into her room during the time they were here, This meant that Ron had to clean her room when she was out, i.e Saturday afternoon. There's a proper hairdryer in her bathroom. Nowhere ever, do we say that we are a hotel, the guests confirmation letter says that we are a B&B. Beef stew is the only meal cooked in batches, vegetables were picked from the garden that afternoon.
Stayed for 2 nights to attend a wedding locally. Food was great, accommodation comfortable with character. Read more
Thanks for a great review we are pleased that you enjoyed our evening meal and also breakfast. Its wonderful that people do like the character of the house, we have tried hard to keep original features and also to combine them with 21st Century technology.
Confusion at the start as we thought we had booked a specific room, Paul's, which was the photo shown on the website, and having stayed before the room I wanted. Didn't realise we were just being given any room. The room we had was smaller but okay apart from the underfloor heating and the heavy counterpane on the bed, meaning it got very hot. Next time will ask for a duvet I think, blanket also heavy and too big for bed. Read more
Online bookings means you book a grade of room, in this case 1 of 7 rooms. The only way to get a specific room is to ring. Paul's room is 137sq ft the bathroom 63sq ft, and the room she had is 150sq ft bathroom 90sq ft, thus not smaller. We removed the counterpane and provided the the two blankets she wanted. In our confirmation to her prior to arrival we did ask if she wanted a duvet. Ron is pleased that you enjoyed the poached eggs.

Myself and my partner stayed for a night at Colton House, and it was a memorable occasion, with a great room and a lovely jacuzzi. The room was fairly priced for the quality provided, but it might well be seen by most as priced at a level for only special occasions. Read more

Arrived on a Thursday evening to stay for one night in advance of a family celebration, which we had arranged to be held in Colton House the following day. The words friendly and accommodating apply to every stage of the experience. The sun on the patio meant we could have pre party drinks outdoors the following day. I'll look back on the stay with a relieved glow! Read more

Glad that you like Inga's Room, it is our latest addition to the range of rooms that we have. With the coloured lights and the Jacuzzi its almost a shame to have a shower. The 6' bed is agreat size and fits the size of the room perfectly. Happy to put the crisps and peanuts in the mini bar for you as well.
We arrived late afternoon on Friday 27th June and straight away we were made to feel welcome by the Owners Ron and Gay.

It was perfect just to arrive and relax, as we'd planned an overnight break after dropping two of our children at a music festival. We wanted to take it easy and gently as we headed home. This was ideal for that. Read more

We then enjoyed a wonderful meal including home grown veg and local produce, in the spacious dining room.
After coffee, we then relaxed in the honesty bar until we retired to our luxurious bedrooms for a goods night rest, until we awoke to our fabulous breakfast in the morning. Read more

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, however we are puzzled by your comments about the glasses and water. There is a glass in every bathroom which holds the flannel.

Its great that you did us great review, we appreciate the time and effort taken to do this.

Great place. Very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Read more
We are sorry that you could not access the internet on this particular occasion although you did on the five/six other times that you stayed with us. Since then fibre optic cables have been laid to the village and we have a new system installed which means that the WiFi is available with great speeds all over the house.
Just a one night stay, nice quiet night although weather was hot, so difficult to sleep,lovely area to spend time in very friendly village. so will visit again. Read more
We stayed for 2 nights in the Castle Howard room for my partner's 21st birthday, it was absolutely gorgeous, the furniture was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The room had lots of facilities like WiFi and a mini bar which were useful. The bathroom contained a Jacuzzi which made our stay more relaxing after having a busy day and the shower had many different features to it. The Staff were very friendly and Ron and Gay made us feel very welcome. Read more
Its wonderful to get a great review for this room. Is has not that long been opened and is proving very popular. Many thanks for taking the time to complete this review.
From the moment we made our bookings to leaving we felt valued customers. We felt at ease and very comfortable from the moment we walked through the door and found a true "welcome". Read more
As the current holders of The Taste of Staffordshire 'Best Breakfast' there is no doubt that Colton House breakfasts are the envy and delight of many. They can be as much or as little as you like and also a plain or fancy as you wish. Ron is always there to add the final touches to whatever your heart desires, as far as breakfasts go that is!

Many thanks for taking the time to give us a review and an excellent one at that. Shugborough Hall Estate is very popular with our guests and is now beggining to have more of a variety of events such as the Moscow State Circus.
One night stay before a day at Alton Towers, we were a late evening check-in but they were lovely and friendly/chatty when we arrived. they took time to show us around and then to our room, which was lovely.

An overnight stay to enable us to attend a friend's party Read more
We wished that you had said something at the time rather than after you had left, we both spoke to you before you went.
So sorry that you did not have a shower cap, on checking we found that you had a mending kit instead of a shower cap, the boxes are the same.
We have given the housekeepers 40 lashes and they promise not to do it again!

Wanted an inexpensive but clean & comfortable overnight stay. With the most convenient hotels to my destination in Cannock already booked I discovered Colton House on the web. It lived up to its good testimonials and the late start the following day made the location ideal. For the first time I had a chance to see a little of the delightful Cannock Chase. Read more

Comfortable and quite nice but found it lacked friendlyness. Read more
Arrived 1pm anxious to go to the room, which other than for breakfast they stayed in for the whole of the time they were in the house. To have no hot water for the 22 hours they were here when other guests had no problem is inconceivable.
At 7.30pm as they were leaving we asked if they would be returning within 90 min as for that period we needed to secure the house and keys, and make provision for them to get in. They resented being asked about their movements, but said that they would be longe
Met by Ron and Gay, both friendly and helpful. I had a very high standard en suite room with views of the beautiful garden. Other rooms worth peeping into, mouth dropping decorations and furnishings. Staff friendly and excellent value for money. I don't know how they do it. They won an award for their breakfasts, and dinner is served with home grown vegetables. Everything very clean. They have regulars, and no wonder, I will certainly go back when I am next in that area. Read more
Very pleasant Read more
The building was lovely and homely inside, there were rooms to relax in on the ground floor with a small bar on hand in one of them .
The cooked breakfast was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. The rooms were the best part for us as they had all mod cons but still managed to look sophisticated and expensive. The chocolates on the pillows and the expensive bathroom accessories were testament to their attention to detail. The beautiful gardens complete the picture. Read more

Purely as an evening away we had an overnight stay at Colton house, opting for the 4 Poster Room. The weather was on our side allowing us to make full use of fantastic gardens. Having an in-house bar was a treat, allowing us to sit in the sun with a cold drink. Having opted to dine in, we were not dissapointed - Our choice of main dish was served with vegetables which had been picked from the garden only a couple of hours before. Superb breakfast, served at any time that suits you. Read more
Excellent Read more
Everything about this accommodation was good. We particularly liked the information about attractions in the area which had been left in our room. The location would have been grat as Colton is a very pretty village but there was no where to eat, the one pub did not serve food and the other pub was shut, so make sure you eat before you get to Colton. Read more
Stunning property for a guest house and the owner/manager is very welcoming and informative. The best room is exceptional in terms of decor and comfort. Read more
It was friendly and good value for money. Read more
This was an online booking. Guests that book by phone can discuss their preferences. This could include which floor the room is on, if it is at the front or back of the house, type of pillows antiallergy/feather, duvet/blankets, food prefernces etc. and for those that are tall the type of bed.
Very comfortable and pleasant stay, nothing was too much trouble Read more

We stayed overnight in a superb room in this really beautiful house. Having taken a stroll around the fabulous gardens we had a quiet drink on the terrace - lovely peaceful atmosphere.
