We have just returned from a stay at the Innkeeper`s lodge in Castleton. On our arrival we were greeted by a friendly chap called Richard, who could not have been more welcoming and polite. He was kind enough to give us a complimentary bottle of champagne as it was my birthday. We regularly saw him and enjoyed a chat!
The food at the castle was lovely, the gormet chips were amazing! I found the beef and merlot pie exquisite.
A lovely touch which my husband and I really appreciated was from Ali the housekeeper. We had bought and bottle of our own champagne and had left it in our room. She had gone to the effort of putting it in an ice bucket, provided 2 champagne glasses and some fresh daffodils.
During our stay unfortunately the fire alarm tripped in the middle of the night on two consecutive nights, but I was quite reassured to know they worked! The manager and staff could not have been more apologetic.
Castleton itself is beautiful and idyllic. The Castle made a great base to explore the rest of the Peaks. We would recommend it as a place to stay. The only criticism would be the breakfast. It would have been nice to have a cooked option (either added to the price or an optional extra) as a fry up could only be ordered at the weekend.
