Having discovered the sister hotel in Beeley, Derbyshire last year, we were keen to experience another of The Devonshire Arms'. We stayed here for 1 night in February. After some communication issues, we missed out on a particular deal, but thanks to the help of Kelly in reservations, she gave us a very comparable offer. (Thank you so much.) On... More

For my birthday my sister kindly treated me to a night at this lovely hotel. We were lucky with the weather, a perfect spring day so the grounds looked perfect esp with a cricket match being played nearby and two helicopters on the lawn! The reception area oozes old countryside grandeur, without being dated. There was a roaring fire, which... More

We had the good fortune to stay at this lovely hotel. On arrival we were delighted to find we had been upgraded to a four poster room which was lovely and comfortable and very pleasant. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly all the time and we couldn't have asked for better service. We decided to "push the boat out"... More

We stayed at the hotel with friends for three nights and can only echo previous comments. We had a wonderful time. The staff is superb - very professional and friendly. The food in the Burlington restaurant can only be described as amazing. The combination of flavours is incredible and also a veritable feast for the eyes. There are lovely walks... More

We stayed for one night at the hotel - it completely exceeded my expectations. Staff were friendly and attentive throughout and did everything they could to make our stay perfect - I was particularly impressed when the restaurant manager came over and suggested a "plainer" version of he fish main course for my son (they don't have a children's menu)...

We were guest of friends at the hotel in early April 2015, a beautiful sunny period with the Dales at their best. There are not enough superlatives to describe staying at the Devonshire Arms.It is one of the nicest, friendliest and most enjoyable places in the UK . The food is superb, we had rooms with lovely views across the... More
