Clayton Lodge is a large 50+ bedroom hotel which has been run by several companies over the years including Embassy and most recently OYO. Part of the central section of the hotel is made up of a Victorian property which has a nice original spire, but other than this it’s a mostly mid-century affair that was given a full refurb as recently as 2009.

The hotel came under fire from the local council in 2017 following a detailed investigation into ‘complaints of crime, under-age drinking, health and hygiene issues’.

After closing in March 2020 during the beginning of the Covid pandemic the hotel hit the news again in January of this year, when staff discovered the vacant building was being burgled during a routine check;

‘Officers were called at around 1.05pm and were at the scene […] within 10 minutes when four people fled out of the back of the property.’

On the 2nd of April 2021 a severe fire broke out at the hotel destroying the oldest part of the property.

‘A huge blaze has ripped through a closed Staffordshire hotel overnight. Firefighters spent most of last night, April 2, dealing with the fire…’

After hearing from some locals that this was a goer we decided to have a wander before the local kids smash it up too much.

The bedrooms were all pretty samey. Some completely destroyed by kids, some with a lingering smell of weed and cheap cider. But others were pretty tidy, I could've easily climbed into bed in some tbh!

I remember going here as a child with the local high school Clayton hall back in the late 00’s I think it was a Ramada hotel at the time, nothings changed, been dying to look around here
