Reviewed June 25, 2012

Family get together for 3 male adults. Rooms big, comfortable and very clean. Bathroom a little small but no complaints. Staff friendly and food very good, try the scrambled egg and flaked salmon for breakfast, lovely! If elderly just be aware that there are a number of stairs to climb and staircase is narrow in parts.I would stay there again.

We stayed overnight at the Red Lion whilst visiting Wirksworth and attending a function that was held there. Our room was comfortable and quiet and whilst the bathroom was small it was fine. Everywhere was very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and served at a time to suit us. Our request to stay a little longer in our room to help with our later plans was readily agreed.

Just stayed for two nights at the red lion, and after reading the reviews I was quite unsure of what to expect, but I have to say it was lovely, the people couldn’t of been more helpful, food was really nice, fresh and the room was nice too, yeah the bathroom was a little small but it served its purpose, the bed was comfy and there were nice fluffy towels in the room too, there wasn’t a iron in the room but the staff soon bought one to my room with a iron board too, the village was very nice, a lot busier than I thought it was going to be, had a beautiful meal at Le Minstral which I would recommend as it was really nice, all round a really nice place, I would stay at the red lion again.

Well what do you say? I booked two nights away for my wife and I and then read trip advisor with negative reviews. Where do these people come from? The food was first class, the staff friendly and welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be returning at some time in the near future so that says it all.

Yes I understand comments about stairs. Yes I follow some of the other comments and there was some traffic noise being in the middle of town, but this is not the Ritz or Hilton on Park Lane. It is a long established hotel with all the character and charm of an old building. If you have any queries, just ring up and ask. It's quite simple.

Room Tip: Explain your needs when you book

Beds were comfortable but we had to climb 45 stairs to get to the room - no lift. One of the party was 86 with heart problems so not ideal! Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. I was not impressed with the en-suites as they were very small and pokey.

We went to party last month and accidentally someone set up a fire extinguisher. The manageress showed a really bad attitude accussing people instead of asking what happened. After discussions they were proved wrong on their accusations. Never apologized.
Really not good. Will never book a party there ever again with the current management and neither will my friends
