“Romantic break”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I stayed at the Swiss House in November and it was one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at. Our room was very clean, cosy and had a lovely view of Peveril Castle, and the breakfast was second to none.

Thank you
Yes, the electric showers didn't really work well did they! We got rid of the electric showers in room 10 and room 6 - they both now run off the hot water system like the other rooms - a much better 'shower experience'!!
All the best for 2014 :)

Clean rooms and well decorated. Lots of signs throughout the place, telling you what not and what to do, which I found irritating as I am a 55 year old adult.
Breakfast superb but served at 8.30 only. This obviously suits the owners and not necessarily all the guests.
Reasonable value for money but charge 3% extra for use of credit cards - so why accept them?
Apart from that good value for money and helpful owners. Would stop there again despite the above comments!

Can I start by saying how pleased I am that this guest said they would visit us again - despite the points raised, and to address those issues....
SIGNS - I'm sorry this guest found the signs irritating, we do try to keep them to a minimum. It is surprising that, despite having a lot of adult guests - of all ages - people will still ... smoke in the rooms / sit on the boot rack and break it and (quite often actually!) go up to their rooms with their muddy boots on. We ask ourselves whether they would do this at home!
BREAKFAST - unfortunately, in not wanting to read the signs, this guest didn't see the one in the room which states that breakfast is served from 8.30, with the last order at 9.15, so it is not served only at 8.30. We will also have told them this on arrival. Having asked guests over the last 9 years about breakfast time, this seems to be the time span that suits.
CARDS - we do charge for credit cards, and we make this plain at the time of booking, both verbally and it is on the T&C on the online booking. However, it also makes it clear that we don't charge for debit cards. Taking cards is giving guests a choice of how to pay - which is why we make the charge plain from the outset.
Thank you reading this response.

Stayed at Swiss House at the very end of November 2013 for a walking weekend and I have to say Martha and Mary made us extremely welcome with hospitality second to none. Our room, (room 4) was very comfortable, warm and modern with a great bathroom and a massive 6ft double bed.
We did a 9 mile walk on the Saturday and the hot bath was very welcome. On Sunday morning we were served up with a delicious and ample full English breakfast after a fantastic nights sleep, greatly rested and refuelled for another day walking.
I can strongly recommend the Swiss House B+B, you won't be disappointed and we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: From talking to people I understand they are all of a very high standard.

Went for a weekend with friends. Pleasantly surprised. Tea and cake on arrival. We received a warm welcome from Mary and Martha. Room very spacious, spotless and 6 foot comfortable bed. Lovely breakfast with good choice of food. Has a small cosy lounge with games. Close to all amenities in the village. The owners were happy to recommend places to visit and eat.

Thank you for your comments. The 6' wide beds are really something aren't they!
For guests who are tall - we have 3 beds that are 6' wide and 6'6" long. Look for rooms 1, 4 or 6 on the website :)

We had an amazing weekend staying in Castleton @ Swiss house. The location, rooms and breakfast were all excellent but most importantly Martha & Mary as our hosts were terrific. Accommodating, full of advice and welcoming we really felt relaxed in their b&b. On every occasion their recommendations lived up to expectations. We have already talked about returning for more R&R in Castleton.
