Very disappointing....we found this hotel very tired looking and in need of updates. There may have been nicer rooms but ours was very small & cramped...needed three keys to just get in the room! And for what?! The bar may be described as cozy but I would describe it as smelly, so much that we were put off actually eating there....maybe it's because it's old? Wouldn't stay again.

Dear guest, sorry you were disappointed, as you say the interior was due a decoration and last week the whole of the ground floor was decorated.
With regards to your room, the pub is a converted 18th Century farmhouse, it’s an old building, but to give you some perspective, it was built well before the American War of Independence and whilst the pub lacks the dull, and soulless banality of a chain hotel we make up in character.
Descriptions of each room can be easily found on our website enabling people to make informed choices. The descriptions are accurate (endorsed by a recent hotel inspectors report). If people don’t read what’s in front of them ………….
Three keys to get to your room ???? it’s a pub not a hotel, when the pub is closed residents have their own entrance, three keys – hardly an issue is it?
Wouldn’t have you again!

This pub is cosy with good beer and an open fire which gives it a welcoming atmosphere. The landlady was a friendly host and quite attentive in serving our food order. The food quality was really good, better than the usual pub, and reasonably priced. A must for future visits to the Hayfield area.

We stayed on a two-night KGB deal which included a two course meal.The pub is cosy with great beer and an open fire which,with the hosts' attentiveness gives the pub a welcoming and warm atmosphere. The food was great,if, for us at least a little pricey, but as we enjoyed our "free" meal so much we ate there the second night too and weren't disappointed.The breakfast too was superb and efficiently served.
The room was small but clean and adequate, though a "larger " person might have trouble with the space available for the toilet! There are lots of activities most nights in the pub itself which again give the Lantern Pike its character.
The area surrounding is extremely attactive and we managed walks up to Kinder Scout and the Mam Tor ridge overlooking Castleton, despite the weather. We will certainly return.

We stayed for a couple of nights last week. The rooms were very clean, although small. We didn't mind the rooms being small as we were out most of the time and only spent an hour or two each day in the room.
The landlord and landlady were very pleasant and friendly, the breakfasts couldn't have been better, in fact they were perfect. We ate in one night at the Lantern Pike, the food was alright but there wasn't too much on the menu that I really fancied. Some of the reviews mentioned the loud music in the evenings. There was no loud music during our stay and we sat in the bar in the evening with a bottle of wine, in fact the music when they did play it was rather quiet and just the right volume.
Overall, worth staying here if you fancy a couple of nights in the peak district.

Room Tip: We were in a room around the back so didn't here any noise from the front where the road is.

We stayed at the Lantern Pike Inn for two nights on a mountain biking weekend. From the off Stella and Tom made us most welcome in a lovely traditional country pub. Our rooms were spotless and we ate on the first night the food was great. Breakfast was spot on too. But our stay was great due to how Stella looked after us she couldn't do more ! If you want to visit the Peak District I would recommend the Lantern Pike Inn without hesitation !

We stayed for 2 nights on a good value KGB deal at this cosy old pub. Our room was clean and comfy though rather small, it was quiet although overlooking the main road, thanks to double glazing,but unfortunately there was no signal for the TV. The bathroom was clean and well equipped but the toilet space was very narrow, not suitable for a large person. Breakfast was good, well cooked and plentiful. Quite a large range of evening meals on the menu which were nice if slightly over priced. The bar was cosy and quaint with an open fire, sadly only 2 real ales available which reduced to 1 on our second night. The landlady was pleasant and informative about walks and the local area.

Stayed overnight with a mate as we were walking up kinder scout the next day, unable to book in before 5pm meant a trip to Glossop to kill a few hours - whilst the landlord and landlady were welcoming and the food was good, the "acoustic night" was maybe not to our taste !! Beware if you stay on. Monday night!! The room was best described as tired and maybe a brighter light bulb would of helped the bathroom had been refurbished and was good would I stay again??? I doubt it ... The downside of using an online booking site.

Room Tip: If you don't like acoustic music don't go on a Monday night!!

Sorry the room wasn't to your liking, however, as i have explained on numerous occasions, we are a BB set in the country in a converted farmhouse dating date to 1750. We have never marketed the business as anything else.
