“We really liked it and would recommend it to family and friends.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

We had a one bedroom apartment with lots of space for just the two of us. The renovation looked like it had been done very well indeed – combining original features with a modern kitchen and modern bathroom. The overall effect of this was impressive. The location of Bagshaw Hall and Bakewell as a town is excellent. The apartment was very convenient for the town centre – less than 5 minutes’ walk. Bakewell itself is a great base for walks in different parts of the Peak District – both nearby and further afield. Although it was self catering, when we did need to call on the staff, the response was rapid and helpful. The car park was only just large enough, and parking could sometimes be difficult and time consuming on the two or three occasions when we found other vehicles parked across two spaces. Perhaps the management might consider ensuring that the parking spaces are very clearly defined.

This is a lovely place to stay in a great location. We stayed in the Rutland Apartment which was very nice, clean and had everything we needed. While we were there the staff were also very friendly. However this was described (and priced) as Boutique which it definately wasn't - There was nothing I would descibe as luxurious about the apartment, in fact most of the furniture was a bit on the tired side. It didn't help either that I paid by cheque and then a couple of weeks after our stay, they also took some money off the credit card I had used to guarantee the booking under a completely different company name!! They did refund me, but didn't exactly rush to do it.

Bagshaw Hall is a lovely old building which has been converted to luxurious suites. We stopped in the Rutland and the Cavendish. The Rutland is very spacious and just like home, going upstairs to bed. The Cavendish is on the top floor and for me the appeal is being on top of the building, a little balcony through the kitchen allows us to view Bakewell in the fresh air. There is a great market on Mondays in Bakewell. There was a music festival recently with bands outside in pm. The hosts at Bagshaw are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend this to anyone it is more than value for money. Lesley & Andy Derby

We had a Friday and Saturday night stay in the Chatsworth Penthouse this weekend. The room/suite was excellently decorated to a high standard and the room was well equipped.

The location is perfect for exploring Bakewell and the Peak District. We visited Matlock and Buxton and can definitely say that Bakewell is the nicest.

To be clear this is an apartment, not a hotel, so there is no towel replacement or breakfast, however we thought this added to the feel of the place. It felt like a home from home rather than a characterless hotel!

We'll definitely be coming back :-)

Room Tip: Book through their website as all rooms are individual rather than through late rooms etc.

We stayed in the Cavendish apartment and after phoning to let the owner know we had arrived we received a very pleasant and friendly welcome. He showed us to and around the apartment and recommended good places to eat. Bakewell is a lovely little town with plenty of cafes and restaurants and a great base to explore the Peak District. Overall I would recommend this place with the observations listed below. This is not a typical hotel, in that the apartments appear to be operated with minimal service and interaction from the owners during the stay, although there is a mobile number you can ring if you need to contact them and I assume that they are onsite.

Positives
- Great location only a few minutes walk (downhill) into Bakewell
- Private car park
- Very clean modern apartment
- Good kitchen facilities (microwave, fridge, dishwasher, washer/dryer, toaster)
- Great shower and bath
- Lovely bedlinen and towels and robes
- Very quiet private top floor apartment with a great view & unique balcony (although I imagine those apartments on the lower floors maybe slightly noisier due to vicinity to stairs/main doors)
- The lack of inclusive breakfast suited us as we could either make our own or wander down into Bakewell and weren't tied to a time to get up for breakfast.

Negatives
- Slightly confusing reception entrance location and arrival procedure which requires having a mobile phone.
- Unclear what the room servicing procedure is for a number of nights as room was not serviced for a 3 night stay
- The lack of inclusive breakfast, lack of room servicing and other onsite hotel facilities tipped the accommodation to being on the expensive side overall for us (£65+ per person per night).
- Plenty of cutlery though the crockery seemed a little random and could have done with more mugs and glasses
- No tea towel
- Limited TV channels and slightly out-dated TV facilities. Ended up buying a couple of DVDs to watch. Would be great if there was a DVD library.
- Slightly dark apartment due to being up in the eaves
- No door on the ensuite bathroom - probably due to space
- Obviously this is a very old building but the decor in places which had been modernised was slightly tatty in places. Like anywhere that has been modernised to a high standard it needs to be regularly maintained otherwise it can quickly look shabby.

Room Tip: On the top floor

Enjoyed the penthouse suite with its views of the surrounding countryside but were disappointed that the room was not serviced and no towel replacements for a two day stay. Strictly a self service hotel.

I booked an apartment in the Bagshaw Hall for my parents and a room in the Sleep Lodge for myself and husband. On arrival everything seemed excellent, and while the location can't be faulted, the cleanliness can be. The bath water in our apartment wasn't draining well and on closer inspection, the drain was blocked with hair etc. There was mould and mildew on the tiles and you could not have a shower without flooding the floor.
In my parents apartment, 2 light bulbs did not work and it looked like no one had ever vacuumed under the sofa cushions. The wine bottle openers in both apartments were broken and the main door to Bagshaw Hall slams shut, which can be be irritating when it's next to your lounge and other guests arrive late and leave early!
All of these things are small issues, considering how nice the apartments are, but it was frustrating that there were no staff around to ask questions or any instructions on what to do with rubbish, or your key on check out.
I would stay here again as the apartments are unique, practical and in an absolute ideal location. With just a little bit more effort this place could be outstanding.
