“Fabulous hotel for a wedding reception!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We have just celebrated out daughters wedding reception at Hassop hall hotel this weekend just gone & what a wonderful time we had! The hotel setting is just perfect within a fantastic location in Derbyshire! We found the staff exceptional, professional & very attentive. The food was wonderful...how they manage to achieve serving 112 guest with piping hot food almost all at the same time was brilliant! The Hotel itself we stopped for the night was cosy, warm & inviting!Where ever you went you would come across a lit fire that just added to the feel of the whole hotel. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough for staying to explore Derbyshire or to book a wedding reception. Thank you Hassop Hall Staff for giving us such a wonderful experience that we will never forget!!

Room Tip: All 13 rooms where taken up by my wedding guests & all said they loved their room so I recommend...

We spent a night at Hassop Hall with a deal that included a 4 course meal bed and breakfast. The friendly attitude from all of the staff made an excellent start to our stay. We registered then went for a good walk to Baslow through to Chatsworth and back around to Hassop returning to a warm and comforting room to bath with loads of piping hot water in our very nice room. The evening meal was excellent with bottled water being replaced swiftly and efficiently. The food was of a very, very high standard and unlike some hotels, there was plenty on the plate! The selection of wines on offer was very good with unexpectedly reasonable prices. We had a very good Penfolds wine at a very good price. The choice of sweets at the end of the meal was wide with something for all, I was full and at first declined but when the trolly came out I succumbed! The breakfast was of an equally high standard with lots of healthy options and the obligatory cooked breakfast, this set me up for the day and I did not have lunch that day! The only glitch was in the bathroom in the morning when the taps would not work and the shower refused to go. I rang down and within in seconds a plumber was at the door. After a very short time he rang down and a key to the next room was brought to us to use the facilities there. A very slight inconvenience for which we received a large discount on our overnight price! (unasked for!) I would recommend this hotel as a very good base for the Peak district, for a special meal out or celebration as well as a wedding venue. I cannot praise the happy friendly staff enough. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the gardens is better than one with a view of the car park, but all are quiet.

We went to a formal dinner at Hassops Hall, and stayed overnight. We had a lovely stay: great food. ( both at the dinner and for breakfast the following morning) and a really characterful room. The description 'faded grandeur ' used by another reviewer fits the bill beautifully. The bed was huge and comfortable, the bathroom quirky, but functional and the main rooms were pretty and comfortable. Everywhere was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The price for the night was far less than might be expected for a country house hotel. The only disappointment was that the weather was too wet and gloomy for us to explore the stunning scenery around the house. We hope to return in the summer.

Obviously if you are rich this is your local eaterie. For the rest of us, this is a special treat. The hotel/restaurant is a delightful building in a lovely country location in Derbyshire. Stunning countryside although on this occasion we arrived in the dark! We went to celebrate a birthday so we were only visiting the restaurant, not the hotel. It was where hubby and I were married so a bit of a nostalgia trip. As befits a place of this standard, the service is very good. You are welcomed and looked after with quiet efficiency. The menu was excellent and we were hard to put to make our choices. The Chateaubriand was to die for. The duck and turkey went down well. The wine list was excellent. In fact everything was great except for one dish; the dover sole was not good and when it was pointed out to the waiter out no apology or redress was offered. It was the only negative point of the evening. Should have made a fuss but it was a birthday event and the guest did not want to spoil the mood. Shame the waiter did not offer to do something. The fish was pretty much uneaten.

A huge thank you to Helen and the rest of the Hassop team for our recent Weddng Breakfast. We , and our guests, were charmed by the Hassop experience - a very personal feel, gorgeous genuine faded country-house grandeur, superb food for every course and attentive service. Helen went to enormous trouble to accommodate our wishes, even allowing us to string family and friends photos around the sitting room. We spent a lot of money on flowers, which admittedly looked gorgeous, but actually the beauty of the Hassop table settings meant they were a lovely adjunct but not at all necessary. Dietary requirements were met with aplomb. We considered lots of lovely Derbyshire venues but are so happy that we chose Hassop, thank you.

This is a pleasant but not exceptional hotel, but in some ways it just misses the mark.

Firstly, there is no proper 'downstairs' area for guests: aside form the dining room there's a bar and a room off the bar, but each table seems to have one comfy chair and two or three of the sort that maiden aunts think is good for the posture. So one tends rather to stay in one's room, meaning the place feels rather B&B-like. Secondly, though there is some nice furniture, some of it is pretty close to thrift shop: on the large half landing outside our room, there's a sort of 'sofa graveyard' of tatty green velour furniture that looks like a staging area for the skip. Lastly, though the restaurant is visually very lovely indeed and the service extremely attentive, the food is... well... I'll give you an example: they put white sauce on the broccoli. It is full of appreciative locals (the car park is a lot fuller at dinner than at breakfast) and I am sure it knows its local market but for me, it was aiming at fine dining and missing. The menu is too long, a classic mistake, and though some of the dishes two of us had over the course of two dinners had perfectly cooked elements, some of it was not up to the mark.

Our room (the four poster) had lovely bones and some nice furniture but it still managed to feel a bit B&B and it wasn't cheap. It did, however, have a spectacularly interesting bathtub in a very large and attractive bathroom.

I would certainly go back: the hotel is beautifully situated and it is a handsome building - but If I were the manager, I'd have a careful think about what would happen if someone nearby decided to compete.

Just returned from a few days here. I loved it from the moment we arrived at the impressive gateway! Everything about the décor and the ambience is just right - not at all hotelly and thankfully not madeover with a Spa, gym, modern wooden floors and other modern trappings. Our "standard" bedroom was lovely and spacious and the attention to detail was impressive: monogrammed bed linen, bathrobes and towels (lovely and fluffy), decorated toilet paper and complimentary newspaper. The bed was large and very comfortable and the bathroom really spacious (doesn't bother us that the bath isn't modern - so what!?). We found the room a bit hot at night but we hit a warm spell and guests would moan if the hotel was too cold.The breakfast was wonderful served in the elegant dining room with starched napkins and tablecloths. I love the old cutlery and teapots with the hotel's crest. The breakfast food was really good and the service friendly and faultless. We had one evening meal which was again served in the sumptuous candlelit dining room which made for a lovely evening although the food itself I found rather uninspired and rather old fashioned.(the over long menu immediately rang alarm bells) However it was not expensive as part of the DBB deal and the surroundings were so special - topped off by inclusive coffee & petit fours in the cosy wood panelled bar. I do hope they don't get Alex Polizzi in - its such a gem as it is ... perhaps a new shorter more modern menu?... but please don't do away with the old cutlery, table linen, beautiful soft furnishings, proper dining chairs, plush carpets and uneven floors. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend.
