Very friendly people gave us a warm welcome.

The house is quirky but the rooms are comfortable and attractively furnished in a nostalgic sort of a way.

The gardens are abundantly stocked and it is clear that they are regularly maintained. The time of year (Mid March) did not show them off at their best, but the range of plants will, I am sure, offer a fabulous display in warmer months.

Immediate impressions are fabulous - long straight drive up towards a genuine minor stately home in its own grounds - gravelled car park and a beautiful view. Inside is just as good - nicely appointed reception areas and friendly, welcoming staff, who helped us with the bags. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, large, well furnished and comfortable, with an amazing view over the park. The evening meal was beautiful too - well cooked and generous, with well presented starter courses and mains although I have to say not a very adventurous choice of vegetables.

Breakfast was promptly served and the whole experience was very good, in regard to generalities - you do feel that you are experiencing something special, and memorable.

There were a few minor issues which should not have happened when staying at a hotel of this quality, I'll present them as do's and dont's,:-

- Do switch the radiators on in the bedroom about half an hour before guests arrive, especially on a cold March night.

- Don't say things like "there you go then" when placing dinner in front of guests - this place should be classier than that.

- Don't open the white wine before bringing it to table - show it to and open it in front of the guest.

- When the breakfast menu states "manx kippers" do serve more than a single small kipper.

Altogether a fab experience which could and should have rated five stars but for the pereceding points. Nevertheless, highly recommended.

We Stayed for Saturday night dinner and an overnight stay for our wedding anniversary and the experience is well over and above expectations. Nothing is to much trouble for the staff, who are all very friendly and there always seems to be somebody available. The dinner was excellent comfortably 5 star, as was the individually served fresh cooked breakfast. The room was both huge and quirky with an internal balcony style window, complete with table and chairs to sit and take in the magnificent views of the Derbyshire countryside.
This really is a gem of a hotel in which to spoil yourself.

Room Tip: There are only 14 rooms, so I doubt there is a bad one.

We have recently had a Golden Wedding Celebration here. What a joy it was from first booking to the actual evening. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful without being too gushing. The food was absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere at this lovely hotel was warm and the surroundings
Beautiful. Top marks for everything. Dinah G.

We spoiled ourselves by staying overnight when we could quite easily have had a taxi home -
but why should it just be visitors who get all the plums?!
Having dined here for getting on for forty years we have on three occasions stayed overnight -
usually to impress friends from the South (!) but this time it was just the two of us - Pampered!
Cannot overdescribe the experience of staying at one of the most beautiful houses in the Peak Park - one that just ouses atmosphere and is staffed by efficient and qualified people who are genuinely interested in their guests.
Can't wait until the next time. We often stay in London and frankly have found nothing to compare - even when paying twice the price.
Well done and please carry on - you have a National treasure here and must never consider
selling up.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the front - but they all have decent aspects from the mullioned windows

This hotel deserves 6 stars!! The staff are professional, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The house is unique, very beautiful and homely. Our room was stunning with views over the formal gardens and a fabulous, huge bathroom, roll top bath with tv, walk through drench shower & fluffy robes.
The food is traditional and the menu is extensive, the chef deserves a special mention as every course of every meal we had was fantastic.
Our 2 dogs were made very welcome and there are lots of lovely walks near the hotel.
We had a small, intimate wedding ceremony in the Green Sitting room which was wonderful. Both Richard and Tom went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for us and our guests.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fabulous hotel and restaurant.

Quality... A truly warm and professional welcome, began our stay. Room 15 was beautiful, with several steps which require 'remembering' before partaking of an evening drink!

Choosing our menu prior to going into the dining room took some time; such a large, varied choice of all the courses. What an amazing feat to offer and then prepare such quality food.

The table was set perfectly and really set the scene for the outstanding meal.The service was just the right balance of professional linked with welcoming.
A tip. The dining room was really hot the evening we dined (February).Three of the four of us commented on it and two actually felt light headed. Advise layers of clothing to adjust to your level of comfort!

We slept well and the breakfast was brought on a table into the room and placed in the bay window, where the morning sun shone brightly onto us.

When we packed and left we vowed to return...maybe on a warm summer's evening when the dining room windows are open!

Room Tip: Room 15 is a bath with shower attachment. Amazing round window in the bathroom, but for a stand up s...
