Went with my wife for Sunday lunch and what a lovely historical hotel. The setting is so lovely looking out over the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. The meal was a beautifully cooked Sunday roast and served up by very friendly and helpful staff. We were both very impressed and would certainly return again. I would happily recommend this hotel to family... More

The staff here can't do enough for you, so friendly and smiley. The blonde waitress was very efficient and Christian, the barman was interesting to talk to and never stopped cleaning. The food is gorgeous. I challenge anyone to come up with something they haven't got! The rooms are very clean and adequate and it was great to be able... More

This is a very welcoming place to stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. After booking in we were shown to our room and informed we could move our car and park right next to the door. The rooms are set out in a motel style and have everything you need in them. The beds are comfortable and surrounding area... More

I booked a 2 Night B&B break with dinner on the first night for the end of September using a Buyagift voucher which cost £149. We have used many of these vouchers before up and down the country and we have always been pleasantly surprised by the hotels and the service provided.

Christiian was a pleasure to be served by, he made us feel very at home, he was constantly cleaning up as soon as others left which was nice to see as it meant the standards were being withheld. The environment was clean and homely and I would visit again if near by.

We stayed as a family of four in a family room for an Alton towers visit. Location is good and play area for kids was good , as was the welcome on arrival. Unfortunately, that's the end of the positives. We had our evening meal there and my taste card was valid for their restaurant. The deal was 2 4... More

I was expecting the worse when we arrived but was pleasantly surprised that the chalet was adequate and more importantly clean. I wouldn't go so far to say it was a very attractive room but it was basic and functional. Outside the chalet and certain areas were a bit scruffy but that didn't bother us. The breakfast was a good... More
