Booked 2 nights at the Bentley Brook Inn through Amazon Local just before Easter and have to say it was great value for money and enjoyable. Right from the moment we arrived the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, the deal included a 3 course meal which was lovely, for this reason we decided to eat at the hotel the following evening. We all had the rump steak and it was cooked to perfection and very tender. The breakfast each morning was cooked nice and was all local produce. We had a double room which was a good size, clean and nicely decorated. My sister and her husband had a twin room which was on the small side and didnt have a phone. also the tv on the wall in both rooms was also small but this didnt bother us as we rarely watch tv when on holiday.
All in all we were very satisfied with our stay and would definately stay again and recommend it to our friends and family.

The above was the response from the manager when I asked for something not on the breakfast menu and this is the atmosphere of the hotel. Dinner is served in a bright room with well spaced tables and breakfast in what seems to be an older part of the hotel with a beamed ceiling and walls. All the staff are charming and one feels that they enjoy their work. The hotel is within easy access of Dovedale with its non-strenuous 6 mile return walk to Milldale along the banks of the river. Definitely a hotel to recommend.

After visiting Matlock we decided to go to the Bentley Brook after 10 years. Was regular visitor in past. New Spanish menu, with local Derbyshire dishes. Very good choose. We Didn't plan to stay over, however considered during garden drink and review of menu. Staff very friendly, even showed me a room. Although the hotel was full. Rooms nice and large with extension to accommodation. Was disappointed micro brewery was gone, six years past. :( food very good. Children's menu great. Cold food boxes fantastic and very good value at 5.95. Our mains were fabulous. Children and pet friendly. Nice location and out doors with beautiful views and child play area.

Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel and restaurant.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your meals, we have strived to create a menu that is appealing to all tastes, that also has a hint of our own influences (the Spanish kebabs) whilst offering some local favourites.

We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon, and maybe you will be able to stay too!

The Bentley Brook Inn is a lovely small hotel with excellent staff that can't do enough to help.
I stayed in their family room for 2 nights with my husband and 2 children. We had a lovely time, felt very well looked after and had excellent service and food. The breakfasts are delicious.
The family room that we stayed in had a few problems which could be easily rectified with a bit of upgrading and it wasn't much of an issue for us as we were only there for 2 nights. However, had we been staying longer, it may have become a bit annoying. The television wasn't working, the shower gave us a trickle of water at best and the mattresses were all very hard. The layout of the family room is excellent however with its 2 separate bedrooms and small lounge area. Ideal for families with young children. Just a few simple improvements would really make the difference. The wifi could also do with sorting out as is is only available in the main part of the hotel and not the rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.

We are pleased to confirm that the television is now fixed in room 1.

Thank you for bringing to our attention the issue with the shower, this has now been resolved and the upgrading of the televisions and the mattresses are something which have been added to our future plans.

Unfortunately the wi-fi cannot be improved, this is due to the location of the property and the unavailability of high broadband speeds, we do however advise guests that the wi-fi is only available in the main hotel and at best, is only suitable for reading and responding to emails.

We hope to be welcoming you and your family back soon.

My girlfriend and I stayed her easter Saturday and Sunday, and had a fab time. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room a good size, and clean and tidy. For an en-suite the bathroom was of a good size and had a good power shower. The bar had a good selection of local real ales which pleased myself. We ate there both nights and I would highly recommend the Chicken kebab on a large skewer. My girlfriend enjoyed the delicious homemade puddings. The countryside was also beautiful and we enjoyed visits to the local Ashbourne, Matlock and Bakewell. We would definately like to stay here again, we booked it through Amazon Local and got a great deal. Highly recommend this place for a relaxing, chilled out weekend

A lovely relaxing break in this hotel, very comfortable with excellent food and friendly helpful staff.Child and dog friendly if this applies. Would recommend to friends and family. Lots of things to do in the area suitable for all ages. Mobile phone and internet connection limited if this is important to you. Try it for yourself!! Surrounding scenery is wonderful. Ideal for a break anytime of year.

taking a dog away with you often means you are in a scruffy room, our room at the Bentley Brook was clean, tidy and lacked homeliness. The tiny TV could not be viewed from the bed and there was only 1 comfy chair. The worst element was the bed and we had to lie on the duvet to provide some night-time comfort, thank you to the housekeeping staff for providing additional bedding for our second night.
The staff are very welcoming and the breakfast excellent. Some of the food met the same standard but we found the hake overcooked and the chunky soup undercooked and lukewarm, the oatcakes were excellent.
A warm place to go after some strenuous walking, although the walks from the hotel are limiting.
