We purchased the hotel through a Groupon deal as a one night break a few months ago. The photos on the website looked great and was perfect location for the Tissington Trail, we were looking forward to the night away.
Prior to going we made numerous phone calls to try and book a room but nobody ever answered, we had to do everything through email.
Upon arrival we made our way to the reception and were greeted by some guy who made us feel like we were a hindrance to him and he couldn't wait to get rid of us and show us our room. It all seemed very rushed and an effort.
It was in February and was a very cold day but when we got in our room we discovered it was warmer outside. The radiator was on but you couldn't tell and later at night it went off. There was mould in one corner of the ceiling. The bathroom was lovely but even colder than the bedroom. The shower wasn't the best but was adequate. The room on the whole was clean but very cold.
Breakfast was continental and was as expected but the dining room was cold.
Hardly any staff around, however there was a very friendly cat.
If we'd paid full price for the stay we would have been very unhappy but as it was a cheap Groupon offer I guess we got what we paid for but left very disappointed, it was nothing like what we expected from seeing the website.
