this lovely place is absolutely spoiled by the beer. I go in about ten or twelve times a year and the 'real ale' never fails to disappoint. It's not as if the same beers are always on...every time there is a different choice but always the same disappointing outcome. The landlord/cellar keeper obviously doesn't have a clue how to choose,... More

Dear Paul. We were concerned to read your review and disappointed that, on no occasion whenever you have visited us, have you ever made reference to any of your issues. Mark would happily take you on a tour of our cellar so that you can see for yourself how well we look after our beers. We take great pride in... More

We stayed at the Royal for one night during a 6 day walk around the Peak District. Attractive hotel. Friendly welcome. Large room with comfortable bed, and modern bathroom with bath and shower. However light sleepers might want to avoid this room which is nearest to the church, as the bells chime regularly all night (didn't bother us - one... More

Enjoyed the food and the friendly ambience here. Dogs more than welcome in the bar. Ham sandwich was really tasty and chips to die for. Was so pleasantly surprised. Men smoking outside the front door rather spoil the outside if you wish tomwin out and eat though.

What a lovely hotel. Our room was fabulous and the service outstanding. The rooms have been beautifully renovated and the beds like sleeping on a cloud. The linens are as fresh as spring garden. There is a great drying room for walkers and the breakfast will be a nice start to your day.

We stayed here twice, at the beginning and end of a 9 day walk. Our first room was superb - comfortable and updated with an excellent bath and plenty of hot water. Thrilled, we booked for a second stay at the hotel but this time (when we really looked forward to a warm bath), our en suite bathroom had only... More

on a birthday trip to Derbyshire, we stay`d two nights in the Royal Hotel. It was a lovely, characterful building, with an olde worldy oak panel`d bar. The food was tasty, and plentiful. The choice of real ale, ample...and it was well kept. The staff were friendly, and the locals welcoming. The room was on the first floor, looking out... More

Hotel with great character, that has a comfortable and relaxed feel. Used as the central location for the filming of the BBC's 'The Village'. The newly refurbished rooms were excellent, though our shower was not as powerful as it looked! The large bar is surrounded on 3 sides with different 'zones', each with their own unique ambiance. The choice of... More

Thanks to Lisa and the staff our group of two families had a lovely stay... Bedrooms were comfortable and very well appointed. The food and beer were all excellent. The village is great with plenty of shops and stunning walks and easy access to Hioe valley where the kids loved walks and caves. We will most definitely be back!
