I'm very surprised by the extremely mixed reviews that the Wind in the Willows has received. Having stayed here over a dozen times while visiting family nearby I've always felt very welcome and at home here. I never realised what a marmite effect the hotel seems to have on people!
I think that the problem must be people's expectations...this is not a large contemporary hotel. The Wind in the Willows is a Victorian house and its decor and furniture match the style of the building. If you want to stay in a small, quiet countryside hotel surrounded by beautiful views of Derbyshire with fantastic food and staff and a friendly, relaxing atmosphere then I would fully recommend it. Having travelled around the world and stayed in many large generic hotels, I really enjoy the character of the Wind in the Willows and look forward to staying there again soon.
