Myself and my Husband have just returned from a one night stay here, whilst the pub is ok, it's not fantastic , the accommodation is rubbish.
We stayed in Room 5. Check in was a bit strange but it is a pub , maybe a proper reception area would be good but it's so crammed in the bar area I doubt this would work ,
When we arrived we had had really heavy snow so it looked beautiful , but in the foyer was a huge leak coming through the beams that was really bad, I felt sorry for the Staff who were constantly emptying buckets of water, not a great welcome really.
When we entered Room 5 I was struck by the smell of damp , but in the bathroom was mould all over the ceiling which was causing it.
The carpet was dirty and at the very least needed a good Hoover , the housekeeping standards were really poor , coupled with a towel rail hanging off the wall and the ludicrously sized T V (about 12 inches) , I felt this was rubbish value for money at £69 .00 .
I was glad we had only booked one night .
We were told the breakfast was continental so we never bothered with it and checked out early.
On the plus side , due to the double glazing it really is quiet .
All in all such a shame as these buildings are beautiful and with a bit of care and attention to detail , coupled with higher cleanliness , these rooms could be beautiful .
We did not eat in the pub as we have a Vintage inn locally and wanted to try different food , we ate at The George at Hathersage which was lovely .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Just three miles from the historic village of Hathersage, this charming country lodge dates back to 1773 and is one of the cosiest hotels in the Peak District. What's more, it's only a short drive from Sheffield and Chesterfield. The lodge, which you'll find within the Longshaw estate, offers 9 comfy, characterful rooms, a menu of hearty, seasonally inspired food, and a wide range of regularly changing cask-ales and well-chosen wines.

Locals will proudly tell you that it's also home to the oldest continuous sheep-dog trials in the country. If you've brought your walking boots, head for Hathersage - a great place to start your exploration of the area's intriguing rock formations. The area is a haven for walking and climbing, but it's also a popular with swimmers. That's because it's lucky enough to have its own heated outdoor swimming pool, set within a lawned enclosure and usually open from March through to September. There are plenty more pursuits to keep you busy, with Chatsworth House, Sheffield Botanical Gardens, Sheffield Ski Village and the ancient village of Eyam all on the doorstep. ... more less
