What a wonderful day myself and my new husband had at Santos. Despite the water being cut off during the morning you would never have known. The food, service,all the staff were fabulous. We had a truly memorable day and all our guests were most impressed. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Thankyou.

This was our third NYE celebration here and once again it didn't disappoint! Service was impeccable as usual, with nothing too much trouble for the staff - please pass on a huge thank you to each and every one of them. They are friendly and efficient and treat all guests as individuals (even remembering us from previous years). Food was... More

Places like this just don't exist anymore. It is slightly dated in places but that part of what makes it so magic and charming. It's very clean and I am fussy! The staff are really fantastic its like a proper hotel and restaurant like they used to be. Linen table clothes and folded napkins, friendly staff topping up the drinks... More

For the price of a Premier Inn, you get the Amber Valley, luxury bathroom, room service, beautiful room. What more can you say. Perfect. Even the service was 2nd to none. Very comfortable luxury bed too!

We celebrated my parents 75 year birthdays - we are from Sweden and we had the most lovely weekend ever. Environment, the staff, food, wine, rooms, - everything was perfection. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our parents.

We booked a one night stay as a base for seeing family in Derbyshire. After a visit to Chatsworth we put the hotel post code into the satnav and reached The Sitwell Arms Morton which is about 5 miles away from Higham! We had to ring the hotel for directions. We arrived around 4pm, but had to go out for... More

Nice hotel but felt like a bit of a gate crasher when we checked in with a wedding reception in progress. The restaurant was nice and the hotel had an excellent view of the Derby countryside. The staff could learn to smile a little more as none of them looked very happy. Overall a pleasant stay.

It's great to know you had such an enjoyable stay with us. As you rightly point out, every room is different so it is well worth telephoning reception if you have specific requests/requirements. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Santo's Higham Farm Hotel in the near future. Katherine Law Senior Manager More
