We had a lovely welcome on arrival and our weekend break was perfect. The position of The Silken Strand is perfect for visiting Leek. We ate at their restaurant twice. The food was excellent. Beautiful cocktails. The chef was also a friendly chap and ready to engage with the guests. All the guests were ready to talk and exchange information... More

Friendly greeting when we arrived, ordered drinks and sat in bar. We were then taken down to a table in the cellar which was quite cold and smelled a little damp. However we were the only ones in there as it was quite early so would be possibly warmer when full. We ordered a selection of tapas between the 3... More

We visited this hotel on 3rd June 2016, and decided to stay over as friends were holding their engagement party there. It was a delightful hotel, the staff were all very friendly, there was a lovely atmosphere and the service was excellent. The room itself was beautifully clean, very comfortable and it had a superb bathroom, rolled top bath, shower,... More

I came here with a couple of friends on a weekend evening - as we decided to try out the Tapas menu having heard some good reviews. We were not disappointed by it either. We were promptly seated in a small but intimate downstairs cellar area which was nice and cosy and served with our choice of drinks promptly. We... More

Visited here with my wife a couple of weeks ago on a sunny day. The beer garden is in my opinion one of the best in leek. I visited here last summer with a pal and the garden was splendid. Worth a visit for a pint or glass of wine on a day when the weather is good.

The hotel looks stunning from the outside. There is no indication on arrival where the hotel reception is we figured it out and we're met be a helpful member of staff. We were given room 5 which had a 4 poster bed and a large bathroom. In general everything is fine but just a little upgrading would make it as... More

I stayed here with colleagues following a business meeting. The room was adequate, the bed had a soft poor quality mattress, however at 5.30am, I was woken by a constant stream of HGV's braking for the traffic lights at the bottom of the road. To add to a poor start to the day the electric shower did not work. Fortunately... More
