The shops on the main road in town and the many chip shops available. We booked a night at Willersley castle and what... More

Another reviewer has said that this hotel is more about the people than the place, and I think that sums it up well. The hotel is old and refurbishing is expensive; over recent years it has upgraded most (but not all) its rooms to be en suite, and has very recently installed TVs in the rooms. This has improved it... More

OK, so you don't go to a Christan Guild hotel for the furnishings or niceties. I go with an elderly relative because he enjoys the company of like minded people. It's true, the bedrooms are dated and shabby. The carpet in my room looked like you wouldn't want to walk on it in bare feet (although it actually was clean).... More

Awesome location and grounds, makes you want to sit outside on the terrace with a Pims! Made do with a bottled beer! It is a mansion, more impressive outside than in. The two bedrooms I saw were clean but a little dated, although some recent improvements include wi-fi and flat screen TVs. The bed was scrupilously clean and comfy and... More

We've just come back from a brilliant 2 night stay in Willersley Castle. I booked Willersley as a 30th birthday treat for my boyfriend. I booked a superior double room, and asked for a good room as it was for his birthday so we were given room 40. The room was located in the far left of the castle, slightly... More

Had a great night here a week ago. The hotel itself is charming, in a beautiful setting. It is slightly run down but not in an unclean way. The staff were friendly and approachable and the views were stunning. With the use of the pool too (particularly good after a long drive and in the following morning after a run... More

I spent one night here. Room contained 4 beds and was a very large room on the first floor. Castle has lots of character, we are used to modern hotels so staying here was a change. It's a 5 minute walk into Cromford, Cromford canal and Cromford mill. The pool is up a steep hill or you could drive up,... More
