“Amazing Hotel with Lovely Staff”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband took me to this hotel for a night as a treat as we hadn't been away for a while, and what a treat it was! Everything was lovely. The room was gorgeous and the view from our window was beautiful. We arrived at the hotel at around 5.00 pm on the evening of our stay, right in the middle of a huge down pour of rain, but the hotel still looked well presented and inviting. The staff who welcomed us were lovely even though we were dripping rain water all over the nicely polished reception floor. They showed us to our room which was amazing and offered to reserve us a table for dinner, but we had already got one booked. We settled into our room, I particularly enjoyed the complimentary toiletries which were so good I have since bought some to use at home. We dined in the restaurant which was amazing and enjoyed a few cocktails in the bar. The waiters were very accommodating when I requested the change the ingredients of some of the cocktails. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had a very good nights sleep. The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant, and I was amazed with the choice of things to eat for breakfast, there was so much attention to detail. Overall we had a lovely stay and I would not hesitate to use this hotel again for a special occasion. I would most certainly recommend a stay here to anyone.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel with a lovely view of a pond.

We stayed here over the Bank holiday. The rooms are excellent and the furnishings are of a high quality. We had a large room with a dressing area and a very large bathroom with a deep bath and walk in shower.
The staff in reception were very friendly and professional and made us feel at home immediately.
We dined in the Red Lion which is attached to the hotel. As it was Sunday the a A la carte menu was not available. However the food and service was good.
Unfortunately the hotel had an issue with the water supply the following morning. This meant no showers or running water to wash. I must stress this was beyond their control and the staff handled this issue really well.
We checked out that morning and were assured that the owner would call us to apologise. This was not necessary as the staff had already done that and we understood it was beyond their control.

Two days later we received a phone call at home advising us that the owner would like to offer us a free stay as compensation for our inconvenience. My wife stressed that we understood this was outside of their control but they insisted. Two days later a letter arrived with a full explanation and a voucher valid for one year. In my view Excellent customer service.

Even without this unexpected treat we would highly recommend the Peak Edge and will definitely return.

I came to the hotel as a guest at a friends wedding. The venue was easy to find and has a sufficient car park for lots of cars. The food was delicious and the drinks at the bar were reasonably priced. The views outside provided great opportunity for some wonderful wedding photos. The staff were polite and helpful. Over all we had a great experience at this hotel!

We have both traveled extensively and this small gem of a hotel had the best and friendliest service ever! The "feature" room with the glass balcony and gorgeous double bath (no tap holes at the end) was fabulous. The breakfast was delicious and it is the first time ever that we have had bubbles and freshly squeezed orange juice to start the day as part of the package!

Simply cannot rate it highly enough and if we are going to the beautiful Peak district again, this is where we will be staying.

Room Tip: We were shown the suites and there is only one with the feature glass window overlooking the lake an...

Stayed as part of a wedding party.
The room was fine but the balcony isn't really a balcony - more of an opening door.
Lighting wasn't really sufficient for applying make-up - or so I am told :-)
The gardens are immature and the lake a bit bleak but it was raining most of the time - it will be better when it matures and the sun shines.
Ate in the restaurant - service was ok and so was the food - but thats all.
The starter cried out for a little bit of toast to mop up the poached egg and the main was served on a wooden platter whereupon I had to keep retreiving bits and bobs that fell off.
Bar had a good selection of drinks but some of the staff didn't really know how to serve them but all pleasant enough.
Breakfast was OK only with items not really cooked sufficiently (eg black pudding) and staff not attentive enough - if you serve coffee by the cup they do need topping up.
Scrambled egg was a bit watery - could do better.
Seemed to be an awful lot of people smoking at the entrance which is not very welcoming.
But all in all - served its purpose for one night.

Thank you for taking the time to writie your recent review and hope that you enjoyed attending the wedding which we hosted at The Peak Edge Hotel at The Red Lion. I do value and appreciate honest and constructive feedback . The Feature Rooms have glass Juliet Balconies overlooking the lake. A Juliet Balcony is known as this as they are named after 'Romeo & Juliet' scene. The lights in all the bedrooms, where necessary by mirrors and dressing/wardrobe areas have been replaced with brighter bulbs, to assist with makeup application, shaving, etc . We have recently planted many trees, bulbs, shrubs, fruit trees, flowers and ferns within the grounds thats looks truly stunning now in full bloom and more established, not to mention all the wild flowers in the fields. We are a modern 2 year old Boutique Hotel and making excellent progress in so many areas of the business. However, I would like to sincerely apologise that you was disappointed in parts of your breakfast/bistro dining experience and the smokers that had gathered outside the Bistro enterance left you disappointed. I have spoken to each department regarding these issues have been addressed. We do hope to welcome you in the future. Kindest regards, Damian Dugdale.

Booked this as a last minute deal and what a treat it turned out to be. Spacious room, excellent bathroom and gorgeous view. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is well positioned for exploring; Bakewell, Matlock and the surrounding areas. It is a little oasis. The food in the adjoining restaurant was excellent although it did feel a little pretentious (Not sure a waiter needs gloves to bring a slate of bread which then meant he couldn't pick up the slate when we were finished). Overall a brilliant stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed two nights with friends as we wanted to see Chatsworth and some of the smaller towns in and around the Peak District. The Hotel is well positioned and is well appointed with spacious rooms and superb bathrooms. All the hotel staff were very helpful and polite. The adjoining Bistro Pub had great food and well deserved its gastro awards. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The only downside is that it is isolated....but that also is its strength as you are away from it all.
