We've Made Improvements to our WiFi Access!

We are delighted to announce that work has been completed this week to make the FREE WiFi access we offer visitors staying at our b&b even better!

When our WiFi was installed a couple of years ago we had no idea how popular it would be. 
We love to chat to out guests and have been surprised to find out just how many people make good use of the WiFi while they're staying with us.

We're always trying to make improvments to the services we offer here at The Malthouse.
As technology moves at such a pace we decided it was time to see if any improvments could be made to our WiFi signal.  A new antenna and a few pounds later and our WiFi access is now better than it's ever been.  Even places that sometimes proved to be 'patchy' in the past now show much improved signal strength.  When you come to stay with us happy surfing!

Hello from a Snowy Alton!

Well what a difference a day or two make!  Since our last blog we've gone from cold to snow in Alton just like many other parts of the UK.  Thought you might like to see a few photo's that we took first thing this morning.  The snow might be a bit of a nuisance to people BUT boy does it make everywhere look pretty!

These photos of the orchard at our b&b are really beautiful.  The snow looks wonderful when it's just fallen.

We were greeted at the back door this morning by our cat Smudge.  Here he is showing us the route to the outhouse where he has his breakfast.  Cute or what, he's such a good boy!

If you have snow, hope you're safe and well.  Make the most of the wintry conditions though, it won't last forever we hope.  Bring on the Spring eh!

What's the weather doing where you are I wonder?  A couple of weeks ago Spring seemed to arrive early in Alton.  We spent quite a few days working outside in the garden at our B&B tidying up.  It was sunny so we thought why not get outside, it was lovely.  It's gone a bit cooler though now but at least it seems dry so as long as your wrapped up being outside is fine.  Lets hope the warmer weather returns.  If your planning a visit to Alton Towers soon bring sunglasses and winter coats so that you're prepared whatever the weather does!
