We have just returned from a fantastic 2 night break at this characterful Derbyshire hotel. We were a party of 8 adults and 1 dog and everyone had a great time.
We had booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package and the food was excellent. Extensive choice at breakfast, including fruit juices, cereals, fresh and dried fruits and a hot buffet consisting of bacon, eggs, tomatoes, sausage etc. There were additional choices, cooked to order, which included smoked salmon and scrambled egg, smoked haddock and kippers. Dinner consisted of a pre-dinner drink of Pimms followed by 3 courses (a choice of starters, mains and desserts), cheese and biscuits, coffee and mints. The package also included a packed lunch. You certainly don't go hungry at Biggin Hall!
The rooms are well-appointed and clean with comfortable beds. Our rooms all had a bath as well as a shower - great for walkers to soak away the aches and pains of the day!
The countryside surrounding the hotel is beautiful and great for walking - there are several well marked footpaths running through the village of Biggin including the Tissington Trail. There is also a friendly country pub (The Waterloo Inn) and a pub in the nearby village of Hartington (approx 1.5 miles away) so we didn't need to use our cars at all.
Would I recommend this hotel? ABSOLUTELY - Some of our party have already re-booked for later in the year.
