Oh Boy!

Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom

Loved this place! From the moment of arrival it lived up to my expectations. Helpful staff at check in, a comfortable room, a free a spacious car park and a good restaurant too. Local store and gas station were very convenient and despite the snow, it was a great trip. I opted for a valley view room. Worth it! Even on a cloudy morning. It's taken 51 years to get this trip done....so hopefully the next one will be a little sooner.

Great hideaway with brilliant history 🤠

Euxton, United Kingdom

What a real surprise this was, we booked a stopover on way to four corners but hadn’t realised the historical significance of this place. We loved the stories. The room was clean and comfortable, our coffee machine issues was dealt with immediately. The views are spectacular. My tip is to head from here to Medicine Hat and simply enjoy the spectacle, remember to stop where you can a look behind. It was an constant incredible view.
