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

Were staying in the vicinity and decided to eat in here on our first night. We went in and the atmosphere was very nice. Log burner so nice and warm. Not very big inside but we think there was another room but weren't sure where. The girl behind the bar was a little standoffish although the rest of the staff... More

Firstly, I must mention that Wirksworth is a lovely town. Secondly, the Red Lion Hotel is a pleasant little place in the heart of it Only stayed overnight but was impressed enough with the room. Modern bathroom contrasts with the homely interior of the bedroom. Tea, coffee and mineral water provided which is great. Couldn't fault it at all. Onto... More

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
