HOUSE GUEST: Louise Groves with Alison House.

Alison House in Cromford played host to a special guest – Alison House – who was celebrating her 60th birthday.

Mrs House, of Wales, and her family stayed for two nights at the hotel in Intake Lane – inspiring hotel staff to host an Alison House convention and invite other women who share their name with the hotel to visit.

Manager Louise Groves said: “I have been here for over four years and have been waiting for someone of that name to come here all that time so I was thrilled when her husband rang and booked for all her family.”

Mrs House wrote in the hotel’s visitor book: “ “I’ve had the best time of my life here in Alison House Hotel.”
