We stayed at the Charles Cotton Hotel on a 2 night Travel Zoo deal. We are experienced travellers and have stayed in hotels all over the world so we can recognise the difference between good and bad service. Our overall impression of this hotel was ' Could Do A Lot Better'. On arrival, reception staff were indifferent, probably thinking '... More

My wife and I spent one night here as a mid-week break. The hotel is in the centre of the village with ample car parking at the rear, although the entrance to the car park is a little narrow! Check in was speedy and efficient and our room was ready on arrival (mid-afternoon). Our booking was on a dinner, bed... More

Visited this restaurant today after walking in the beautiful countryside. Happy they allow dogs inside and provided water bowl. Ordered a 2 course, meal which came within good time although very disappointed at the size of the portions for the set menu price. Having said that the food was tasty and the staff friendly and welcoming. Wash-room facilities need repair... More

Had a meal there today at lunchtime, the food arrived within a reasonable time and hot also well presented, unfortunately in my opinion for the price of the food I expect a little more for my money this thing of a dozen chips in a wire basket? also I had the cheese, potato and onion pie it was ok but...

We stopped by after a walk and we noted the sign outside stating that 'walkers were welcome'. We were glad we saw this - lovely atmosphere in this olde world hotel. Nice open fire, warm welcome from the staff and great food and drink. Some interesting beers to choose from along with a wide selection of quality whiskeys. We spent... More

Very disappointing on several levels. The rooms were a reasonable size albeit small showers, but adequate for a couple of nights. The bar was nicely laid out and had a lovely log fire. We were disappointed at being sent to bed at midnight the first night because they were closing the bar! One place where being resident didn't count! On... More

We had a very nice meal here. I had lamb that was very tender, the bed of mash it was on was lukewarm, we couldn't decide if this was by design or poor production. The price was not too bad, didn't stay

On a blustery March afternoon we lunched with friends at the Charles Cotton, the famous Inn which stands in the middle of the delightful village of Hartington. We ordered food and drinks at the bar and sank into the luxurious Chesterfields by the open fire. The place was quiet (it was a Monday), but it soon became busier with families,... More

I stayed at the Charles Cotton on the same night as the review by 'Aurora', and I must say that customer must have been tripping on the 'Aurora Borialis' (hence the name and it is of course, free)because they seem to have gone out of their way to ruin what was a lovely stay at the hotel. There were 25+... More
