Stayed here to celebrate a birthday. It is a lovely hotel in a lovely part of England. The building is Georgian and quaint and characterful. It was great to sit in front of an open fire with a post-dinner single malt.
The garden room we had was spacious and comfortable, and well equipped. Nice extra touches like sherry, nuts, fresh milk, fresh coffee - and a decent Sony TV rather than a cheapo own-brand Matsui or some such. The bed was gigantic - plenty of room to stretch out. We had a really comfortable night and slept well. The shower ran hot immediately and it was powerful too. The room was quite hot - but we just turned the thermostat down to suit what we wanted. The sink in the bathroom is probably nearing the end of its useful life.
Dinner was excellent - three courses punctuated with complimentary tasters. The three variations of lamb main course were cooked to perfection. The raspberry ice cream is to die for. If wine is your thing there is a phone-book thick wine list. Breakfast was excellent - full English (Derbyshire style) set the day off to a good start.
The service was very good. The Receptionist was attentive and gave the impression she cared that we were enjoying our stay.
Will stay here again in the summer when we can sit outside and enjoy a drink by the river and the gardens.
