We had 2 nights DB&B at this hotel and overall we really enjoyed the experience. The public rooms are cosy and it was great to sit down by a real fire following dinner and chat to the other guests. The hotel is clean and the food was wholesome with lots of options at dinner and a full breakfast buffet with both hot and cold choices. The hotel dose'nt have a bar, which was a surprise but there is a large selection of bottled beers, wines and spirits in the reception area and these can be purchased at any time. The bedroom was in the main house and this was fine even though it was a little tired, it was clean and it had all of the facilities we needed and a comfortable bed so there was no problem.
The staff were friendly and helpful and they responded efficiently to all requests.
It was a little more expensive than I expected (circa £150 per night for a couple DB&B) but it was worth it to us as we had a good stay and enjoyed the break.
I would recommend the Dovedale Stepping Stones walk to anyone who enjoys scenery but is unable to complete difficult terrains or distances - it was a easy stroll (except for a couple of stepped climbs and it was simply beautiful. Buxton is also worth a visit as it has some great architecture and a few nice shopping areas.
