“Unique Places to Stay Voucher”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Just got back from an overnight stay at the White Hart using a Unique Places to Stay voucher. After viewing the White Hart web site, we were expecting a spacious room with a large bed, we were shown to a tiny room with a bed that frankly looked smaller than a double but perhaps it was just a small double. (whether that small room was given because of the voucher, I don't know) Having said that, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean and nicely decorated and with an adequate en-suite shower room. The staff are all very pleasant and the breakfast was a very good hearty meal, nicely cooked and not at all greasy, unlike a previous review we were offered more tea/coffee, toast etc, and were not charged extra. Unfortunately our stay was spoiled by the fact that having a room facing the front, if you open the window (which you would need to do in the summer, the traffic noise was horrendous! also on this particular night (Saturday) there were several pubs and venues very near by, playing extremely load music until well past midnight, also load shouting and loads of traffic until the early hours. My husband and I didn't get much sleep, and for a small market town, all I can say is, leek has a wild night life!!! if booking request a room at the back!

Room Tip: Ask for room at the back

Stayed here on business in Leek, old listed building with tea rooms and gift shop on ground level. All the rooms are upstairs around a small rabbit warren of stairs and branches! You get an access code to let yourself into the hotel and rooms after paying, no human intervention. Very nice rooms, old wordy and quite large, nice beds, well decorated and good bathrooms. You go down into the tea rooms for breakfast. Nice staff and good food. Enjoyed this a lot and would be a good place to take the partner for a nice weekend. Quite pricey for a B&B, but Leek is not a cheap place to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you get your door codes emailed to you before going there, especially of arriving late.

Comfortable and clean rooms,but our breakfast was spoilt both mornings by the fire alarm going off for about 15 minutes,of which the waitress treated as quite normal,we noticed a guest at another table actually went outside to eat his breakfast.we would not stay at this B&B again.

Close family booked four of us into The White Hart Tea Rooms for two nights B&B at the beginning of May to attend a family wedding. The property sits at the top end of the old market square on the main road. When we arrived my initial thoughts were it would not be anything special but how wrong.
I asked the lady at reception did they have a private car park, they did not, but she advised where I could park safely and with no charges.
We were shown our three booked rooms and we were not disappointed. My wife and I were in a large, very tastefully appointed room with large en-suite, fresh and very clean, a super king size bed, and the room also had a large settee to view the television and relax.
Our room price was £80.00 per night for two sharing including a good hearty breakfast.
The other two rooms were equally as good although slightly smaller at £60.00 per night inclusive.
The place offers good value evening meals and is ideally situated for exploring that part of the peak district. Thats about it. We would stay there again should we visit the area in the future.

Room Tip: I believe the B&B is a fairly new venture for the owners. I think they have about six or seven...

the room was very clean and comfortable and well situated in the town. however we went on a unique places to stay voucher expecting an old fashioned tea room run by waitresses in olde worldy outfits (see the promotional pics). it is all trendy wooden floors and modern furniture now. however the breakfast the the worst. a fire alarm went off just at the start of breakfast for everyone staying, and it was 10 minutes before the waitress came to say that the alarm "was a bit mental". no apologies no explanations no idea of how long the noise would go on for. there was little choice of cereal, no muesli in this day and age!, the cooked breakfast was very tasty and well cooked. however when we asked for toast and marmalade and a second cup of coffee we were told that this would be extra! EXTRA! never in 40 years of b&b visiting have we EVER been asked to pay extra for toast or coffee. shocking. we were intending to stay until 11am but left as soon as we could to escape the fire alarm noise. a big let down on what could have been a good experience. but we liked leek.

As well as a B&B the Whitehart is a cafe at the top of the Market Place in Leek. It was taken over a few years ago and although I have been in sice, this was the first time I had been in for anything other an a cup of tea.
Although we didn't have a full meal, myself and my family stopped for tea and cakes following a wand round the town. Instead of a traditional menu for cakes, there was a changing selection in a display case, including various cakes, desserts and puddings. My husband and I couldn't make our minds up and initially agreed to share 2, however once they arrived, they were so good we refused to share! Between us, we had a banoffee pie, banana cake, Mars bar slice (as in the chocolate bar) and a small cupcake, along with various drinks.
Service was attentive and pleasant and the rooms ad nicely decorated with lovely stained glass and period features. I will definitely return here and recommend for the fabulous cakes!
