Stayed overnight as we were attending a function. Room was wonderful with views across the lake and gardens. One of the most comfy beds I have ever slept in too. The function room is amazing with the most beautiful lighting. Food was plentiful and tasty and presented nicely. The staff are friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble.... More

We enjoyed a rather lovely afternon tea here today, good service, very attentive staff and delightful choice of cakes and homemade scones. Compared to other places, very reasonable price. Good cuppa too and I am fussy about my tea.

Stayed with a large group of friends for the hotel's themed 80's night. Excellent value for money, rooms large, bathrooms massive, beds comfy. Lovely grounds and friendly helpful staff. Food was good, especially breakfast. No complaints about anything.

The bed bases are on view and stained and unsightly ,not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel.The showers have always been a problem in some rooms, with the drain unable... More

On Sunday I held a lunch in the Boardroom at Hardwick Hall for 18 family and friends and I wish to commend all concerned with the event. I chose Hardwick Hall because of the suitability of the room and also the extensive Sunday lunch menu. When I called unannounced to enquire, the team was friendly and keen to show what... More

Bedroom and bathrooms were huge by normal hotel standards, whilst the whole hotel still retained that "family run" atmosphere that you don't get at the big brand hotels and personally I like it that way. It's probably about ten years ago since I last stayed here and although the rooms are pretty much the same, they are still a very... More

Loved the location and feel of this hotel. The room had splendid views, it was clean and spacious, and we experience excellent levels of service. The restaurant staff, in particular, were attentive and helpful. Breakfast was cooked to order which meant that is was fresh and delicious.
