We stayed there on two recent Sundays and found everything to be excellent. Our rooms (1 and 2) were very reasonably priced, very clean, warm, spacious and fascinating - especially room 2 - the stable room!
The staff were very helpful, especially Ann at breakfast - which was cooked to order.
Evening meals in the pub were what you would expect from a chain - but had a wide choice and again were reasonably priced.
The hotel has plenty of free parking and is very handy for Calke Abbey, Melbourne Hall and Derby.
Thoroughly recommended - we shall definitely stay there again

We stayed there for one night on the 26th July 2013, the room (No 6 ) was a very well presented room, clean and finished to a high specification with free wi fi, flat screen TV, tea coffee making facilities and 2 very welcome complimentary bottles of water.
The only draw back was the room being very hot due to it being facing the sun on a very hot day and unfortunately resulting in a very restless night.
We had a meal there at night and it was as expected a typical bar meal, not great but the 2 for 1 on all main course was welcome.
The breakfast on the other hand was perfect, I had a full English which I couldn't fault at all, even the toast is worth a mention made from great bread and brown on both sides, ( not always the case in our experience )
We would stay there again but would probably ask for a cooler room if there was one available.

Me and my partner did a "off the cuff" visit to the Crew and Harper on evening this week.
The pub was not too full most were In the outside garden.
We found a vacant table and a very nice waitress came and got our drinks order
The menu is very good with loads to choses from and if that is not enough they have a large specials board with many tasty delights.

Our order was taken and within not time out food arrived.
We both had burgers.
Mine a veggie burger and fellas was a cowboy burger I think it was called.
Good was hot, fresh and very tasty!

Over all a enjoyable visit.
Clean, staff very friendly and food was great

Thanks!
See you soon x

Twenty-odd of us enjoyed an early bird special on a friday. We'd pre-booked our orders and was expecting to sit together however we were tucked away in a corner over six tables. We rearranged the tables so there were just 3 tables and the waitress said she wouldn't be able to serve us due to health and safety as there wasn't sufficient room between the tables. We arranged the tables again and she was happy!
We had a few stragglers and the staff were patient whilst we waited for our gang.
The food was very tasty and the portions were generous - I had chicken enchiladas with salad. There were no complaints about the food within our group. The service was swift and the staff friendly.
All in all its a busy place and the food is nice. Its good to go there for a change.
