Very clean and comfortable room. The staff were very friendly. The parking is limited, so get there early. If you are unable to park, there is a large car park across the river, very close to the Inn. The hotel is very central, and Bakewell is a lovely town.

We stayed at the Castle Inn for 3 nights. The room was excellent as it has recently been refurbished. Only down side was that we had booked a double room and the bed was 2 singles joined together with large ridge in the middle. Breakfast was lovely. Staff were helpful. Evening meal was good value for money. Good walks around... More

Very cheap lunch, way better standard than the dreaded 2 for 10 style pub. I had the penne Arabiatta, which was good, fresh tasting sauce, but the pasta over cooked. The others had excellent fish and chips, fresh, good portions. Recommended especially as it has free parking to boot!

We all ordered from the 10.99 menu and each dish was below par. Solid lasagne, cheap pate, overly deep fried orange coloured chips. Other diners eating from the regular menu seemed to have better looking dishes. Generally, the locals in the bar were off putting and seemed like they'd never heard an accent outside Derbyshire. The dining area could've done... More

We went to the Castle for a meal on saturday, two meals for £10.99, excellent value and quality, but the thing we both would like to comment on was the service and general helpfulness of the young waiter James, he obviously enjoys his job and is priceless.

The Castle Inn is in a great location, just on the edge of the town of Bakewell. It's two minutes walk to the centre and in walking distance from many pubs, restaurants, cafes etc. It also sits right next to the river and iconic bridge of bakewell which is really pretty. The bedroom was comfy and spacious, although the bathroom... More

It was the best Lamb Shank dinner I've ever had! Attentive, thorough and welcoming service with excellent quality food! Ideal location as well as it right by the bridge into the town. The restaurant section of the pub was smaller than the average pub but that just enhanced the homely feel. Thank you! Would highly recommend!

Always a challenge to find a dog friendly pub with decent food. Not being a fan of Green King I have to say I was a little apprehensive about eating here. Have to say I was pleasantly suprised. The food was actually pretty good and the service excellent. Thank you ladies for looking after our dog so well!

My mum and I stayed at this hotel during Chatsworth horse trials. We enjoyed the experience as there were many good things about this hotel, but a couple of things did let it down. Firstly the good points. The staff were excellent, very helpful and welcoming. The bed I slept in was very comfortable and I had a great night's... More
