We stayed in Room 1, and although the room was clean it is quite small, but it has a great view of the Ladybower Resevoir. Two main criticisms, firstly the mattress is very uncomfortable as you can feel the springs sticking in your back/sides etc. Secondly the bathroom is tiny and needs the sink taps and the shower looking at....

We enjoyed a lovely weekend break at the Ladybower Inn at the end of June 2015. We stayed in one of the pet friendly rooms with our Retriever and it was spotless. A full English breakfast was included and set us up for the day. We ate there both evenings and I can recommend the rabbit, it was very tender.... More

Lovely short stay, the food was excellent, the bar a comfortable relaxing place to enjoy a good beer and a game of cards. We only had two days to unwind and Ladybower Inn was certainly the right choice! Well situated for exploring the area, will definitely re-visit.
