Just enjoyed a lovely long weekend at this hotel, staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food in the restaurant was fantastic and the steak night on a Friday is well worth a go! Lovely area but obviously you need a car to visit the attractions, we spent a very enjoyable day at Chatsworth Hall and... More

We booked the Sherwood suite complete with four-poster water bed and "airbath" as a last minute treat when looking for a B&B prior to a day's walking in the Derbyshire dales to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The B&B price on Laterooms was comparable to many standard B&Bs so we considered ourselves very fortunate and we were not disappointed. The hotel... More

A large group of us went to Santos,we had prebooked but still waited well over an hour for a table. The menus looked very poor and tacky in appearance like something from the 1970s. The menu was ok not as varied as I would like but enough for most tastes. Some of the dishes seemed a little Odd,Salmon with currie... More

A repeat visit. I like this hotel, I find the staff friendly. The rooms are generally of a good standard. There are only two things I'm not keen on, one is the monogrammed carpets, which I think spoil the decor and appearance, the other is the lack of a real ale on the bar.

We stayed here recently after my friend's wedding and had a really enjoyable stay. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy, with a well-stocked hospitality tray and clean towels and shower gel etc. We had a cooked breakfast the following morning which was excellent, well cooked and good quality products. I would recommend this... More

staff were very rude and not helpful at all ( not all of them but most) Room we were in had a funny smell to it and was very old fashioned. Food was average at best. Didn't enjoy my stay at all, and I won't be coming back or recommending it to anyone.

Thank you for your honesty, although I am questioning whether you are referring to the right establishment as the area we receive the most positive feedback about is undoubtedly our polite, attentive, friendly staff, as you'll see from the other reviews. I appreciate that not everyone has the same taste in décor but as we have just completed a 3/4... More

Very attentive staff offering good quality meals in fine ambience. We were all rather confused about the length of the walk from the hotel areas to the restuarant, however we quickly began to enjoy the meal once there.

Thank you for your comments. Our staff are very committed and take a lot of pride in their work. The Hotel dates back to the 19th century which most definitely contributes to the quirky layout. I'm so glad you felt the quality of the food was worth the walk and hope to see you again soon. More

I recently took my mother and wife on a trip of the UK and we stopped at Santo's Higham Farm. The hospitality shown by Santos and his staff was greatly appreciated. Santos made an extra effort to make my mother's visit a special one, which was indeed a much appreciated gesture which went above and beyond the normal expectations. This... More
