We stayed overnight on a family trip. Beautiful warm cottages. Had evening meal, friendly staff. The starters and main course were amazing, no room left for puddings. The fresh cooked breakfast in the morning was beautifully cooked. Will visit again.

Wwe stayed as we were attending a nearby wedding. The staff were great and helped us with taxis and keeping he bar open. The beer on tap is great and the log stove is fab. Breakfast is also very tasty! Our room (room 5) was a bit shabby and lacked the overall character of the rest of the inn. The... More

Staff very pleasant, rooms clean & lovely food. Chef shouts a lot at front of house staff if they don't pick food up promptly which isn't a bad thing, I thought it was quite amusing. One of the locals 'drops in' with his helicopter occaisionally. Views out of the back very nice.

Had a lovely meal on a friday night. Nice selection and not too pricey. Not that many tables to sit at from what i saw so booking is needed. This is a really old building and has lots of charm. Just mind the low door frames i cracked my head twice entering and leaving the back room!

We stayed recently in this 'hotel'. Our 'superior room' was a scruffy matchbox (room 4). Adding a 4 poster bed and a (plastic) chandelier does not make a room superior. The wardrobe had no rail in it, simply 4 hooks We had to ask for a bedside lamp as only one was provided (for a double bed). The shower was... More

We attended a wedding reception in Belper and as there were no vacancies at hotels closer to Belper, we booked a room at the Bear Inn. We arrived at The Bear after a lovely drive through winding country roads. It is in a great location with beautiful views. We were attended to immediately, and after checking in we were shown...

My husband and I and the family were staying at this hotel as my sister had got married locally. Mum, auntie and Uncle had stayed two nights, but we only stayed one so they had booked us in earlier. We got to our room after a long day celebrating, the room was very small, not very clean and the light... More
