Upon arrival the exterior of the hotel is beautiful with traditional features. We did get a little baffled by the barrier across the car park but we soon discovered we just needed an exit code (you could park as a non-hotel guest for a very reasonable amount however, which is very handy at peak times).
The reception was directly in front of you as you entered the main doors; with the restaurant to your left and the lounge to your right. The lady on reception was very friendly and welcomed us, asked us about our journey and asked if we would like to book in for dinner at the restaurant. We requested to see the menu first and was told that if we had any special requirements we could talk to the chef and make an alternative menu!
As it was the day after valentine's day it was very busy so we would have only been seated at 9pm. Not a problem as being in Hathersage you're near to Hope and Castleton so plenty of places to choose from.
We were shown to our ground floor room, a little bemused as we had to go up a flight of stairs, along a corridor and down another flight of stairs; this wasn't a problem for us however someone in a wheelchair or with limited mobility would struggle.
The room was recently decorated with matching wallpaper and blinds. The bed was comfy and there were two huge pillows each, usually I need at least three hotel pillows as they're too flat for me but these were the best I've experienced. A cute touch to the room was "Huggie" an adoptable teddy bear, which brought a smile to our faces.
(Although, maybe not ideal when travelling with children who will want to adopt the teddy.)
Breakfast was amazing. There was a buffet with cereals, fruit, yoghurt, milk and fruit juices. There was also a variety of teas and coffees (even filtered decaf!) brought to your table along with a selection of toast and pastries (croissant & apple Danish). Also included in the room rate was a cooked selection: my partner going for the full English and myself going for american style pancakes with a blueberry & vanilla coulée (delicious).
Checking out was very straight forward and the receptionist was just as friendly as the one we had seen the previous evening.
