Lovely location - perfect for walking and just five minutes drive from Bakewell.
The room was small but nicely appointed and comfortable with a good view.
Dinner and breakfast were good and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for a break in the Peak District.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a nice view over Lathkil Dale.

We stayed here one night only in April 2013. Unfortunately there was heavy snow day before so we struggled a bit to reach hotel because many roads were covered with snow. The Hotel was on quiet location with great views. We got warm reception. Room was with double bed. Not a huge room but comfortable. We had a great breakfast next morning.

Overall pleasant stay. Thanks

Hotel is more of a small inn than a hotel per se. It's in an undeniably beautiful location with spectacular views over Lathkil and quite close to Bakewell village, Chatsworth, Eyam and Hassop station. The hotel itself is spotless but lacks the friendliness and warmth of similar places we've stayed in. On some occasions the staff in the evening came across as rude and surly. Our room didn't have a great view but then you pay £20 extra for that! It was a bit small with a tiny ensuite bathroom. I had a good sleep but my husband now has a bad back as it was 2 single beds pushed together with a lumpy mattress. Our room was very clean. Meals were ok, reminded me of the nursing home I used to work in as they were obviously catering for the older market. My vegetable rissotto was a mush of orange stuff with a few flecks of rice and some very stewed cauliflower but it was edible. My husbands pie was nice though. Prices were a little steep considering we had a 3 course meal in Bakewell for the same as 1 course in the hotel. Breakfast filled you up but it wasn't a vast choice 3 cereals, some over ripe fruit and a small fry up but plenty of coffee/tea and toast. All in all great for a short break like we had but it needs to be bought into the 21st century and staff need customer service skills training

Came in in the middle of a walk didnt know what to do with ordering food and asked staff at bar who didnt really help then went through to where food was served and it was all layed out and asked the person serving the food what to do and she didnt help at all. After figuring it out the woman serving was getting annoyed with waiting for us to decide we had our food which was alright nothing special and left

Our small room with the most beautiful view in this lovely old building was perfectly planned. The shower, fitted at the end of the bath was excellent and there was always plenty of hot water. Lovely big towels to be cosy and warm. The food was good and they were very happy to cater for a dietary need. A great atmosphere in the bar where plenty of locals come to drink and chat. All the staff were friendly and kind. We highly recommend this small hotel, we hope to return.

Room Tip: All rooms sounded to be good, but the two with the view of the valley would be our choice. All are q...
