Was our 2nd time stopping here and it was just as good as before. The room was lovely, not large but definitely perfectly formed. We had bacon and brie hot sandwiches as a bar snack, which were just amazing, and the full English breakfast was perfect. Will definitely be back.

The hotel is in a wonderful location for visiting the Dark Peak .A warm, friendly reception on arrival made the perfect start to our stay. The room was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making equipment which was appreciated. The home cooked food was excellent and all the staff served with a smile nothing was too much trouble. The huge freshly... More

My daughter and I were making a 3 day hike between Ladybower and Matlock - Inn gave ideal start location. Room very comfortable though disappointing outlook. Excellent supper and breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Ladybower Inn for the first time (this was our only option as all other local pubs and inns were fully booked). We weren't disappointed - everything about our stay was perfect. Spacious and comfortable room, great shower, home made food and friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was an issue even if they had to wait for... More

On our way to Wales so thought we'd have lunch on the way. The pub was very busy with holidaymakers, bikers, ramblers and cyclists. (They were expecting a few coaches as well by the looks of it, a lot of the tables inside were reserved) We managed to get parked opposite the pub but wasn't able to sit outside and... More

Lovely friendly people, spectacular location and abundant, beautiful food. We had a table at dinner and breakfast by the window and stayed in Room 1 which both had a view of the reservoir. Thank you for a perfect stay.

Room rather small and in need of redecoration (especially bathroom which had no bath). Not a very warm welcome and even though I had made a point of booking a table for dinner ahead of our stay, I was told that there was no reservation and even though there was a table vacant in the restaurant (which apparently was 'for...

Reception friendly and the room was a good size and clean, as was the ensuite bathroom. The room was set away in a separate building from the Inn itself so was very quiet. Food was variable, very good on the first night I stayed and not so good on the second. Breakfast was ok but unusual in that you could... More

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....
