As part of a two-week road trip through England, we spent some time in the spectacular Peak District. The Stanley Arms is a lovely English Pub in the middle of almost nowhere. Friendly service, great meals and clean and comfortable room. Maybe not quite 5/5 but pretty close, and we had a very pleasant stay. WiFi in the room was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was so nice,clean, everything we needed and crisp cosy bed linen. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The location is idyllic for those who love to be in the country. Breakfast was lovely and the restaurant at night was good, home style cooking with genuine friendly, helpful service.

We have just come back from a weekend stay at the Stanley Arms, and we couldn't have wished for better accomodation. It was so comfortable and spotlessly clean, and I'm sure if there had of been a problem it would have been quickly corrected by the landlord or landlady for which nothing seemed to be a problem. Breakfast was included,... More

My mother was born and raised in Macc and now at 85 she has the early stages of Alzheimer's. My sister and I, who shared a delightful twin room, (spotlessly clean and well appointed, with views from the window of sheep and the moor) took both my parents (my father is 91) back for a short holiday to bolster memories...

Yes we've been back again to one of our favourite places to stopover. Carolyn,Adrian and staff make for an enjoyable stay along with great home cooked food. What more could you ask for. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Booked as a travel zoo package this hotel/pub is pretty remote. The room was fine and clean. the cows outside the window added a lovely touch and an unusual alarm call! Friendly staff and lovely food meant we would go again to eat but probably not to stay as it was so far off the beaten track.

I stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip, I liked the location of the place as the setting looked lovely and it was a preferred choice to a hotel in Macclesfield town centre. The hotel itself is only 4-5 miles from Macclesfield so very accessible. Its setting is out in the countryside and the pub is very... More

My wife and I had an excellent lunch with great service. Very helpful staff and a great menu choice. Generous helpings and excellent value for money. No hesitation in recommending the Stanley Arms surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Never stayed in the Peak District before, just picked this hotel from TripAdvisor and so pleased we did. What a lovely place to stay. Although we had one of the smaller rooms, it was fine, well appointed and spotless. We had a very warm welcome, all the staff were friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu and... More
