My wife and I were looking forward to this weekend visit as it was our 40th wedding anniversary. We booked in just past 4.00pm Saturday and we were shown to our room (Room 8) at the back of the hotel. Initially a little disappointed at the small size as photos on their website had shown larger rooms our feelings weren't... More

My husband & I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel via a Travelzoo deal. The hotel is in a lovely location, the only village in the area with amenities so it provides a good base for exploring the Peak District. I agree with other reviewers that there is no evidence of any management at this... More

We had a special deal on B&B trough Travelzoo and the rooms were excellent and it's a nice little village. Unfortunately the management is lacking to make this a perfect stop. The staff try really hard despite no leadership. Inconsistencies from the kitchen. Had one really good breakfast and then it wasn't so good the next day and likewise with... More

We took a travelzoo deal on this hotel, 3 nights B&B at a reasonable price. Our room overlooked the square and was very comfortable for a short stay though there was a rather strange smell. The breakfast was ok, and most of the staff friendly and helpful. The bar is charming. It is the only place in the hotel where... More

Before staying at the Charles Cotton hotel, my wife was worried about several recent scathing reviews here on TripAdvisor. A bit sceptical about other people's opinions, we checked in with cautious optimism. After three nights, the only real complaint was that the shower pressure in our bedroom was too weak. It was clear the staff were making an effort, breakfast... More

We booked this hotel as a travel zoo deal and were not disappointed. On the contrary-considering that the manager had only been there for 3 months and the chefs 2 weeks, we feel that congratulation rather than criticism is due. I was returning to The Peak District having not visited for over 40 years. My husband had never been. Before... More
