We found this little gem after searching all the other accommodation around Bakewell. From the first telephone call, every member of staff that we spoke to was extremely polite and courteous.
Check in was very swift, the rooms were wonderful, nuts, fruit, chocolates, sherry plus tea and a cafetiere of coffee in the room. We were in two of the garden rooms and had the weather been warmer would have been lovely to throw the doors open and enjoy the garden. The village is very quiet, had we had more time would have been nice to explore the village.
Despite the website and confirmation letter stating no children under 16, they were very accommodating and welcoming to our daughter.
We didn't eat in the hotel, but went to meet family in Bakewell so unable to comment about the restaurant.
Breakfast was waitress service and there was plenty of choice, which makes a change. our daughter asked for a bacon sandwich, which came with three rashers of bacon and two big slices of toast. I opted for fresh fruit salad followed by smoked haddock, whilst the other half went for the traditional breakfast. Toast was also offered and was accompanied by croissants.
Other choices included continental breakfast, cheeses etc.
Checkout was equally swift and courteous. Would highly recommend this hotel, it does have a sister hotel at Monsal Dale.
Please do try it out, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
