My boyfriend had a pleasant enough stay here in the extremely centrally situated red Lion. The room was comfortable, with a great bed with quality bedding. Yes the shower room was a little compact but we as averagely sized people managed fine. Breakfast was not great- very greasy and they did not have the smoked salmon on the menu so... More

We all thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast at The Red Lion, but the rooms are in need of some tender loving care and more spacious loos/showers (ours was tiny). Across the road from The Red Lion is the Blacks Head, a cosy pub with a friendly landlady. She allowed us to eat our baguettes in the pub, as it doesn't provide... More

Stay here if 1. You have to be in a hotel in Wirksworth. I note it's ranked 1 of 1 so there's not much competition. 2. You've always wanted to feel like a giant. Using the bathrooms instantly makes you feel like you're in Lilliput. 3. You're part of whatever function is on. Because you have no chance of sleeping... More

Spent a very comfortable night at the Red Lion Hotel, on a recent visit to Matlock Bath. Great nights sleep and excellent food and drink served in the bar. The fresh stone baked pizzas were to die for as was the excellent breakfast in the morning. Certainly good value for money and we would definitely stay there again the next... More

We stayed here over night on 21st June 2014. 1st impressions were very good but we were not sure where to check in, this happened to be at the bar but there was nothing to tell you that. We were shown to room 6 and told where we needed to go for breakfast. About 2 minutes after we arrived in... More

We have just held our wedding ceremony here this weekend, Peter and Christine couldn't have been more helpful :) The function room looked amazing, they got in a special perry we requested for the drinks, pizzas came out right on time and were gorgeous. Everything was just as we'd planned it and Christine and Peter and all the staff there... More

We stayed here on Sunday night after a trip on the Ecclesbourne railway. We found the landlord and landlady very friendly and helpful as were the locals. Our room was spacious and comfortable and very clean. This is a very old inn so everything is very quaint and higgledy piggledy. Our breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to order. We... More

As said by someone before, outside the rooms is a favourite spot for the local young drinkers to hang out in the smoking shed and chat until gone 1am. When I complained in the bar at gone midnight I was told this was ok as they were drinking up so this was ok. The owners wife was not in any... More

We had a fab time at the red lion, perfectly situated for a walking and cycling weekend with plenty of choice of pubs for a drink before dining in the red lion. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, even storing our bikes overnight in a safe place. Rooms clean spacious and comfy bed although looking a little tired could do with... More

The Red Lion is right in the centre of Wirksworth opposite the market square. It dates from at least the 1700's and still has the arch where coaches entered. (It now leads to the car park.) Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and the usual hotel facilities. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The pub downstairs was... More
