I've stopped here a few times, usually while on bike rides or walks along the Monsal Trial, which is about 1/2 a mile away. The views down the valley are fantastic, the pub is great, the food looks nice, although I've never tried it.....but, its always a long wait to get a drink, especially on sunny days. I may just...

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. 2 nights rooms were comfortable but could do with a bit of decorating. However, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. Understood gluten free properly as well. Very good and a super location.

We used to be regular visitors to the Stables Bar at the Monsal Head Hotel but hadn't been for a while until recently. A rare evening childless we decided to take the opportunity of a lovely walk on the Monsal Trail followed by a bite to eat at an old favourite. Well, what a huge disappointment - it's really gone...

Meals are good value for money , lovely beer garden. We didn't stop in the hotel just went for lunch after a long walk. Friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit if you're in the area. Dog friendly too .

We nipped in to hopefully catch the sunset and have coffee and dessert. We ordered our desert and were disappointed when we were told they only do filter coffee after ordering cappuccino. That aside and the filters ordered...my apple brandy cruble came in a shallow ramicin dish and the crumble tasted like stale biscuits with what tasted and looked like... More

Just been here worth my family for my mums birthday. Love the elegant restaurant dining area with exceptional views over monsal head. There was nobody else in the restaurant though which was odd, but did make it feel like a private family party which was nice. Overall the food was nice but not incredible. The steaks were asked for rare... More

The stay was pleasant, comfortable bed, clean. The bathroom is quite dated, though fully functional. Lovely view from the Monsal Trail room (room #1). Food was great- both dinner and breakfast. We were lucky to have good weather, so chose to eat at The Stables, outside. All 3 courses were great!

The hotel is situated in a beautiful location with stunning views. The rooms are a good size and clean with all facilities that we required. The bathroom was a bit dated and would benefit from refurbishment but was adequate. The food was good, service for the most part friendly if a bit hit and miss at times.

We ate in the stables as more atmosphere than restaurant. Great staff and food. Everyone else had dogs, we are all dog lovers so that was great for us. Lovely outlook over the monsal trial and viaduct. We can not comment on hotel as did not stay here.
