We stayed in room 15 with our Jack Russell dog and found it to be ideal for our needs. All staff from reception to bar to restaurant were friendly from start to finish. Management were visible and welcoming. Food was good - no complaints. Great location as a base for the Peak District. Very enjoyable stay and one we shall... More

Have just spent 2 nights at this hotel. It is perfectly placed for exploring this picturesque part of the Peak District. The hotel, on the village green near to the little duck pond, is friendly and welcoming. We had a standard room which was at the rear of the Hotel. It was small but comfortable with pleasant views. One drawback... More

The hotel is situated in the beautiful village of Hartington, the perfect weekend escape. We arrived at the hotel and were shown to our room by a lovely young lady. The room however was like a box room (so small)! We expected a lot more as we paid £110 a night. The decor of the room was nice enough but... More

The bar friendly and welcoming and the bistro was fantastic, great food, well presented. We both had different options and it was all good and looked like it had been prepared by... More

We went here for a pub meal. But they don't do single course meals - the choice is between rather boring sandwiches or full 2 (or 3) course meals. Once we accepted this, we found the meals were fine, and the price reasonable. HOWEVER these pluses were completely overshadowed by dreadful service - we waited well over an hour for... More

This is the 2nd person from the previous group review wanting a full refund for food they have eaten. My response is the same to the same group . .

A lovely place to stay in a charming Derbyshire village. Booked a stay here for two nights, liked it so much, we stayed for an extra two nights. I slept like a baby in our quiet, cosy bedroom. The hotel is run by Alan and Judy and their friendly staff. The food and service in the Restaurant was excellent. For... More

Thank you for your review of the hotel which doesn't sit very favourable from all accounts. Managed not very well you say in your first paragraph and in another management could be more helpful. ?
