I stayed here a couple of weeks back with my wife on the Saturday night. We were fortunate to book the Churchill suite which was a lovely spacious bedroom with chairs, sofa and desk. The bathroom was nearly the same size as the bedroom with a stand alone shower and jacuzzi bath. All in all a lively room. In the... More

Wonderful hotel staff who bend over backwards to accommodate any request. The location is excellent with great views of the amber valley. Attended my sisters wedding and from the offset the staff made us feel very welcome. The food was plentiful and very tasty

I stayed here as a last-minute Easter get-away with my husband. I chose the hotel after looking at the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and it was an excellent choice. The room was spacious with a fantastic shower & the meal in the restaurant in the evening was one of the best we have had in ages, very good steaks. All... More

We stayed here as part of two couples on a weekend trip of the Derbyshire dales. The hotel is set in a little village and offers beautiful panoramic views of the countryside. The hotel is on a larger scale with lots of amenities, beautiful dressed rooms and a huge bathroom with a shower that you don't want to leave. There... More

We booked a quite room on the first floor for Saturday night getaway. The reception staff were welcoming on out arrival and very helpful providing information and directions to local attractions throughout our stay. The room was spotlessly clean and this is a massive compliment from someone with OCD. We have a lovely breakfast and we recommend anyone visiting the... More

My partner and I went to the restaurant for the steak night and it was one of the best steaks I have had! The service was impeccable and the whole evening was brilliant. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back!

My partner and I had our wedding breakfast and reception at Santo's and it was perfect. Santo has years of experience and really knows his venue. Before the big day, we had met to discuss what we wanted and he was able to give us so much more. His experience really shone through and the attention to detail was faultless.... More

Stayed here for two nights including the New Years Eve casino black tie event which was fab. The meal was a nine course feast and every course was amazing. And if that wasn't enough they even supplied finger food at midnight. After the meal there was a casino night with a live singer then after letting in the new year... More

I think you have summed up New Years Eve brilliantly. The feedback has been overwhelming and I am very proud of all the staff who made it such a success. I look forward to seeing you again to welcome in 2016 but hopefully you won't leave it that long before paying us a visit. Katherine Law Senior Manager More
