This hotel is in the best location in the peaks. Our room looked out over the Monsal Valley. Most of the staff were very friendly & helpful, Breakfast was excellent and Dinner, which we ate in the Stables Bar, was very good. Although without a specials Board, choice was a bit limited, for two nights it was not a problem.... More

All in all we were very happy, the staff... More

We visited recently for a birthday dinner for my wife. I'd booked way ahead as we were staying in the area and had heard very good things about the restaurant here and assumed that as we'd be visiting in the holiday period it would be busy .... wrong! The large dining room (the Longstone) was virtually empty with only 2... More

Person behind the bar when asked for a pint of his most popular beer replied "they're all good what do you want ",then was asked about food and said its a 50minute wait and was asked... More

Great views, nice food, enjoyable. Lovely to sit and have a drink in the sunshine, staff are friendly. Everywhere clean enough. Nice atmosphere. One of my fave spots to come on a nice afternoon. Never stayed in the rooms though

We ate at the restaurant at the Monsal Head Hotel. When i booked i didn't realise that there was a seperate bar or the back which serves the same menu. I wish I'd booked there instead of the restaurant at it seemed to have a bit more atmosphere. The restaurant could be a very grand room but it was a... More

Despite the website suggesting that dogs are welcome, they aren't. There is a new general manager who decided during our stay to ban dogs from the restaurant ( fair enough) but also from the lounge area where they had previously been allowed. He also appeared generally irritated by requests for anything that disturbed his day. The rest of the staff... More

Popped into the Stables bar at the Monsal Head hotel while walking in the area a while back and was very impressed: the staff were polite and friendly and the beers varied and interesting and the atmosphere warm and friendly with dogs allowed. I saw about 6 ales on tap along with 2 ciders and the lagers as well as... More
