I booked this stay through Hotels.com and after reading the reviews thought it looked a good option. Before we arrived we were warned about some decoration being carried out on the staircase but that it wouldn't disrupt our stay. On arrival , we arrived 3 hours early to find new carpets being laid and the owner was very apologetic ....it was our fault we were early so took a walk into Matlock. When we arrived back the fitters were still there and again the owner was very apologetic, it didn't matter to us at all... after all you have to do these jobs in the slow Months. We were showed to our room (14) which was absolutely gorgeous, a massive 6ft wide comfy bed clean white linen and a super sitting area with leather settee. The bathroom was amazing with large bottles of fancy toiletries just what I wanted! We ate in the bar and had the prawn and salmon linguine which was tasty and well presented and the next morning we had a super breakfast too. It is obvious that the hotel is undergoing major refurbishments but I wouldn't let it put you off because the bedrooms are gorgeous. I did read some reviews about the toilets in the bar needing work but to be honest my priority would be the sleeping areas anyway which have been done to a very high comfortable standard. This was a surprise for my Husbands Birthday and fitted the bill nicely. On the last night we found some lovely chocolates in our room and a note saying how sorry they were for the carpet fitters running late. I thought this was a lovely touch and this is a nice example of a hard working couple who are obviously putting their heart into their business and caring about their guests. I would definitely come back to this hotel in the future if coming to Derbyshire.
