I have enjoyed my stay with the home apart from not having many people to converse with. All meals have been good. All staff very friendly, room good but would have liked it to be on site. Toilets too low. Would like to put a thank you card in for some staff.

The nursing and care staff at Colton Lodge are excellent and have made my mum's transfer from her home into care an easier process than we thought possible. Would certainly recommend Colton Lodge.

Having made out a spreadsheet of inspecting a few nursing homes in my area. Colton Lodges came out on top. Why? Firstly location. As I visit almost everyday the journey time is very short whether by bus or car. Secondly the staff. After watching them over the last three months, they pitch in together as a team. I know now my mother-in-law is in the right place, and that is a great comfort to me.

My father was a resident of Newsome Wing for only two months and, sadly, died on 28th December. Together with my brother and two daughters I spent most of the two days prior to his death in his room with him. We were overwhelmed by the professionalism and compassion shown by ALL of the staff we came into contact with during this time and on the following day. They really helped the family to cope with the situation. Our thanks to all of them.
