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.

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service.

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.

I feel that in Newsam House my husband is very well cared for, kept clean and fed well. I have no fears when I have to leave, I know the staff are very capable of taking care of him. I would definitely recommend here for dementia patients.

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.
