The Cavendish really does embody all the charm and elegance of hospitality of days gone by while catering for the modern and discerning traveller. My shoulders instantly drop whenever I cross the welcoming threshold of The Cavendish's main entrance. The receptionists, especially Moira, are so warm and welcoming. The open fire and furnishings of the lobby give a clue as... More

My wife and I had been looking for a place to stay while in the locality for a birthday party; we booked one night in the Cavendish, as the nearest place to the event with a vacancy. It has a beautiful location on the Duke of Devonshire's Chatsworth estate, full of character with relaxing lounges, corridors full of memorabilia, books,... More

We stayed in windy March and the hotel was just the loveliest place. So cosy, grand but small, romantic. Our room was absolutely wonderful. Everything you want when escaping to Derbyshire for an Austen experience!

A real treat, a comfortable, luxurious hotel with old world charm and stunning views of the Chatsworth Estate. An ideal place for a special birthday or anniversary, the hotel offers a number of promotional breaks.

We enjoyed a very pleasant short break here in April, made even better by being blessed with warm weather! The booking included a half bottle of champagne and Belgian chocolates on arrival. Staff were extremely pleasant, courteous and helpful. Food was good and interesting not "run of the mill" hotel menus. We recommend this venue to those who enjoy comfort... More

I stayed for one night with a friend with the sole purpose of visiting Chatsworth House. I wholly disagree with the review regarding the menu and food, we found the food to be delicious and we go to lots of restaurants in London, breakfast was great too. The rooms were comfortable and bathrooms very nice, a good sign when you... More

A hotel which could do with a little more care. The staff were all extremely helpful, the views from the rooms beautiful but bed very uncomfortable and looked as though it had been slept in. Duvet cover and pillow cases in need of ironing. After a long day travelling I was shocked by the menu, very limited and ridiculousy small... More

What a super early tea. Very friendly staff. Presentation of food was fabulous. Top quality and beautifully served sandwiches and cakes. Plenty of earl grey tea. Very much looking forward to going again.

The food was exceptional the beef cheek and Halibut was to die for ! All the other dishes were excellent but this one stood out.After a lovely breakfast with great views we headed off.... More

Lovely spacious clean rooms. Very good service throughout. Calm comfortable atmosphere throughout the hotel. Spectacular views from the rooms. Food locally sourced and presented well. Very expensive, we went on a deal from their mailing list and it was still quite expensive but certainly worth a visit. A lovely walk through fields from the hotel to chats worth house. Free...
