Wind in the Willows Country House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2010

Ian and Alison together with their very able and helpful Team of staff have made our numerous stays at Wind in the Willows entirely relaxing and pleasurable.
A combination of period decor and furniture make this Hotel feel very homely and as for the Wine List and Menu choice - Excellent!! Local produce used wherever possible and a very reasonably priced Wine List add to the pleasure - We shall return!

Avery elegant period themed hotel based on the chidhood novel of Wind-in-the-willows.

Food and comfort: first rate. Ideal for end -of -business- session relaxation with good food and wine at modest tariff. Staff were very friendly and effisient:almost like home- from- home in beautiful Peak district surrowndings.

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.

Without doubt, THE place to 'chill out' from the stresses and strains of life ! It is just pure escapism ! The hospitality provided by Ian and Alison was worthy of particular commendation and the ambience of the hotel generally was, without doubt , thoroughly enjoyable. In the dining room we both chose what was to prove the best steak we have eaten for a long, long time washed down by an exquisite Chilean red ! Eagerly looking forward to our next visit !

Ian and Allison are warm, engaging hosts. They made us a special breakfast after an all-night flight, provided us with directions to attractions in the area, and generally made us feel welcome. The B&B feels like a well lived-in and well-loved home. It is not fancy or trendy; it is just a relaxing comfortable place to be.

The Wi-Fi comes and goes in this rural setting and the water pressure on the top floor is not luxury hotel standard but these were very small inconveniences in light of the totally captivating nature of their home--including bleating sheep in the nearby meadow.

The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout. We stayed in the 'Toad Hall' room which was spacious, nicely furnished in Victorian style and had wonderful views. The only thing to let it down was that the towels and flannels were not changed during our stay, which we have never experienced anywhere before!! English breakfast was cooked to order by the owner and as previous reviews mention everything was freshly delivered to the table. Although the front garden is well kept and beautifully laid to lawn and shrubs, the patio seating area is tatty with old chairs and discarded plant pots which was such a shame as the weather was glorious during our stay.
