My husband and I stayed overnight for a wedding on 24 Sep 2016, along with two other couples. The owners very kindly allowed us to arrive quite early so that we could get ready, and waited up until after midnight to make sure we all made it back safely after the wedding. We stayed in the Winter Room on the top floor, which is a good, cosy size with a lovely modern bathroom. Everything was clean, tidy and comfortable, and the award-winning breakfast was particularly delicious! 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

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
Thank you for your very kind words they mean a lot to us and we hope you can manage that longer stay next time
Luxurious Read more
Probable the shortest and descriptive view we have had. Thanks you obviously enjoyed your stay
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.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a great review, we enjoyed your company. Ron is especially pleased that you enjoyed your breakfast
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.

I'll look back on the stay with a relieved glow! 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
Thank you so much I do not think we could have had a better review. Looking forward to your next visit
Very pleasant Read more
It was great to know you were very pleased with your stay at Colton House. We do hope we can repeat your experience next time you stay
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

Your review is a bit like your stay, Excelant. Thank you so much for that
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.

Your review was a bit like your stay: short and sweet and in so few words sums up your great stay at Colton House
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. After supper in an excellent local pub (The Dun Cow) we availed ourselves of the 24 hour bar - a really good facility. Breakfast was simply outstanding - beautifully cooked and very tasty. Read more
