The Manor House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Situated in a perfect location for the beauty of the Peak District and for visiting several first class stately homes the Manor House Hotel was a perfect choice. Our suite was spacious and comfortable with the quirky details only to be found in a very old building. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly in the restaurant where we enjoyed several delicious meals.
We are looking forward to returning.

My fiancee and I have just literally got back from spending a 2 night break away at the Manor House Hotel in the Loren Suite. We had purchased tickets to watch an event in Sheffield, and having had no luck finding a suitable hotel there, we came across this beauty. Located approximately 15 minutes away from Sheffield and 25 minutes from Chatsworth, it was perfect for the plans that we had made. It also has an Indian restaurant directly opposite and also a lively bar area and restaurant within the hotel itself.

Having booked in with minimal fuss, we entered our room which was the Loren Suite. We decided to pay the extra for a Suite as a little bit of pre wedding treat and it was certainly worth it. I couldn't believe the size of the room. Immaculately decorated with a separate living area and bedroom with an impressive bathroom, we were both to chuffed to pieces. We later spent the night having several drinks in the bar where we had a great time (the couple of free shots that the bar staff gave us was a nice surprise), and it was good to see the locals in there along with the residents of the hotel itself. It made for a much more positive atmosphere.

The breakfast was good, certainly filling, and we had an evening meal within the restaurant on our second night and it was presented well and tasted even better. The restaurant itself in terms of decoration and layout is typical of a pub more than a restaurant, however the food is of a high standard and certainly worth a try.

The minor grips that I had with the place were that the shower door did not close properly (there was a 1 inch gap at the bottom which allowed water to get out), and there was no phone provided in the Suite. The reason that I found the phone was a slight issue was because twice during our 2 night stay when we tried to turn the bedroom light on, it would blow the rest of the lights out meaning I had to navigate slightly through the dark to go out of the room and downstairs to the reception area to report it. However, on both occasions this issue was rectified quickly and it was simply that the fuse box had tripped. Also the road outside was fairly busy on the Saturday morning, so with it being a historic building and having single glazing, I could hear a lot of the traffic when lying in bed in the morning.

I've seen on previous reviews that the noise from the bar seems to be the most regular thing that residents complain about, but I can safely say that it wasn't really an issue for us. Yes I could hear the conversations of the bar staff below us from my bathroom, and I could hear and feel the noise from the bar downstairs, however I was quite drunk on the first night so enjoyed hearing the music when returning to my room, and I only had to put up with it for 30 minutes on the Saturday when I just simply turned up the television. I think people need to realise that the hotel does have a positive nightlife, so if you're a boring and moan about anything and everything, a B and B maybe more appropriate in the hills somewhere, but if you fancy a good hotel that's only a stone's throw away from Sheffield, then get yourself here.

Stayed here one night in the Bacal Room. Room is a small double with en-suite. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean. My only issue about the room was the lack of soundproofing with the adjoining room. Due to the beds location it appeared to be level with the en-suite in the adjoining room and I could here all that was going on in the bathroom!

When we went down for breakfast we were told that the breakfast chef had been involved in a car accident and they were waiting for a replacement chef. Whilst we waited the staff kept everyone updated and provided us with hot drinks. When the chef got in he coped admirably well given that all the hot breakfast orders would have been put in at once.

Just been to the Manor House Hotel for my birthday and it I think we found a real treasure here. The building is a quaint & rickety 15th century build & the Hotel oozes "historic" charm. We had the Hepburn suite,,,it was done in a boutique style, which we don;t usually go for but it was lovely.
We ate in the restaurant which is small but nice. I ordered from the Xmas menu, my wife from A la carte & everything was cooked to perfection. And so reasonably priced. Cant wait to return

Room Tip: Our room was looking over the main road but noise was no issue at all. The rooms looked small so go...

We stayed fri & sat up visiting friends. Lovely uaint, quirky building.
Beautifully decorated. Great atmosphere in the bar, which was busy with locals. Fabulous food & service great. Staff friendly & attentive. Not the place for a quiet weekend retreat, but for a few drinks & a good time would def recommend! We will be back!

We booked for 2 nights at the Manor for a stay in the Peak District. Good points...Location very good. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Good breakfasts. The Indian restaurant literally over the road was first class! Bad points...We booked the Loren Suite. Would not recommend it. The bedroom area was on a busy main road and the windows were old and ill fitting so the noise was awful. All of the suite was over the downstairs bar area which was very busy and noisy both nights. Friday was the worst with the noise and very load music finally finishing at 1am Saturday morning. Shame because the suite was very tastefully decorated and very spacious. Generally...This is a hotel and not a pub. The bar area is very cosy though. We ate there the first night and the food was nice but the second night the menu was just the same although they had a specials menu that night, lots of hake dishes which is ok if you like hake, we don't! That's why we chose the Indian across the road and was not disappointed. Could do with a bit of TLC on the outside. Good sized car park.

Room Tip: Would not recommend the Loren Suite.
