Amazing 18th century coaching inn, well preserved and located perfectly for the start of our romantic escapade in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Staff was more then welcoming and accomodating, giving us tips for where to start our adventure next day. Special thanks go the owner, Peter, who cooked us a hearty and yummy full english breakfast, to Jan the housekeeper... More

In a nice location in the Peak District, and a nice pub, but the bed is VERY soft and the extractor fan outside the window is VERY noisy!!!! Ear plugs are supplied, which I suppose should have warned me. The bathroom was very nice and sparkly but very small. Breakfast was okay but the sausages were of the very cheap... More

A good Hotel to stay at. The bedroom was clean with towels and bedding. Tea and coffee good. Breakfast was good with ample choice. Not the Ritz. The staff very helpful and could not fault the service. Worth the stay and the price good value.

I choose this hotel from the website. The rooms looked nice for a good price, and the menu sounded really good. Unfortunately what we found was the complete opposite. The room was nice, although it was very loud being at the front of the hotel and there was damp causing the wallpaper to bubble. The bathroom was tiny, barely being... More

We stayed for a night with another family visiting friends. The family rooms were already booked when we called, but the owners let us put extra beds in the rooms. Lovely rooms, really comfortable beds, great tea & coffee facilities and an extensive breakfast. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We would happily stay again.

Last stayed here about 5 years ago. This time was just as enjoyable. Right in the centre of town, which isn't really big anyway. Bus stop right next to it if you don't want to use the car. Room was spotless, bed was really comfortable and bathroom was a decent size. All the staff were friendly and we really enjoyed... More

We ate in the main bar at the Lion and found it very nice after a long walk up the Ecclesbourne Valley and over Alport Height. The food was much better than last year and it came a lot faster. The bar staff are quite friendly but they need to turn the lights on in some dark corners of the... More

Very friendly staff. Great breakfast. Tea,coffees, water and milk great choice and given more than 4 of all. A few improvements which would make it even better. Wi-fi needs to be sorted could not access at all, an information pack regarding the hotel, but also the amenities in Wirkswoth.

As soon as we walked through the door we knew we wanted to stay. We were not mistaken. Warm and welcoming, the landlord and his wife couldn't have been more accommodating; even to the extent of adjusting the 'full English' to reflect our ketogenic requirements. Lovely large and comfortable room with cafetiere and ground coffee as well as the usual... More
