Just a short break, and we were not disappointed with anything we encountered at the hotel. The staff were efficient, accomodating and completely professional. The breakfast was superb. It was also comforting to have a very secure car park. Great small town with much to see.

We booked 3 rooms for the weekend to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. The hotel were very good at keeping it a secret that our daughters were joining us with their partners and my husband didn't guess. For what we paid it was good value - £57 per room inc a nice breakfast. The rooms were oK although variable. We... More

This Hotel has had a long awaited make over by the new owners and the restaurant is a whole new enjoyable eating out experience. The pizzeria is first class and the restaurant itself serves a very good choice of excellent food. It is proving very popular with both local people and visitors. Belper is finally gaining a few very good... More

Stayed there for one night on my own and had dinner at the bar. The place is busy, meaning that the locals find it a good place to go to. The staff were friendly, took me to my room, got me a table at the bar with a plug for my computer. Very nice. The food was reasonable, maybe a... More

Went for an evening meal as wanted to see the difference to what it used to be like when previous owners had it and had heard good reviews. Due to the weather wanted to be able to take the dog and eat at the same time - after a quick phone call was advised this was possible by sitting in... More

A ladies lunch today with family, we were shown to a lovely set table with white table linen and fresh flowers in a beautiful room, the strutt room. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service good too. We had a great afternoon catching up with family. We will definately go again and I highly recommend it.
