When we booked we asked for an upgrade room (at an additional cost), and we were led to believe this was done, but we were placed in a standard room. OK not the end of the world. I only tried the bar once, and was grunted at by the barman, and eventually served,( I was the only person in the... More

Stayed here Sunday night and last night. At the time of booking i was told our room was in the dog friendly annex but assured that the rooms where dogs are allowed were deep cleaned after use. I neednt have worried our room was large modern and beautifully clean. As it was big enough to take it 2 chairs rather... More

Decided to re-visit after the new owners made a big effort to win back customers some years back. Long detour Buxton / Ashbourne road, walked into the hotel bar at 3.45 pm waited 5 minutes whilst the bar staff sorted out another customer, asked for a bar food menu, told at 3.50 pm that they stopped serving food at 4...

Four male walkers of "late middle age" greatly enjoyed their three night stay at the Charles Cotton Hotel. The area has a good range of beautiful walks, the hotel was ideal being reasonably priced, good bedrooms, good food and beer. The owners, Judy and Alan and their staff were friendly, helpful and interesting. All in all, we'll go back; strongly... More

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday, we upgraded to a suite and the room was well worth the money. The size of the suite itself was huge and the bathroom definitely can't be described as small. The room was well decorated and the view from the front window made us feel like we were in the middle of... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is and ideal location for walking - no car needed. The food in the evening was very good. The breakfast table could have done with some fruit for none cooked breakfast people and we don't like being given a pot of hot water and a separate tea bag - the water should... More

Following a long walk along Milldale, reaching the delightful Hartington was a well needed rest. An early evening meal at The Charles Cotton was equally delightful. Service friendly and outside area stunning. Next time we will stay here too.

Stayed here for two nights in May 2015, and had a really enjoyable time. The food is excellent, the staff are very friendly, and the hotel has a very good atmosphere. Plenty of walks in the local area. The hotel is definitely recommended.

lovely setting friendly staff. Evening meals could do better surrounded by eateries in the district including a Pub over the road. If it rains enjoy the cosy Bar by the fire and enjoy well chosen music and good beers.

We visited this hotel and stayed on the 29/30th March 2015. The location is lovely. The hotel is rather tired and we weren't too impressed with it. The room was small with a very dim light so no good for reading. Breakfast was another either/or job which doesn't suit us. We chose the cooked breakfast on the first morning which... More
