Very smart accommodation with extremely friendly and helpful staff.
The grounds are lovely
Worth the time and effort.
A very enjoyable experience for the both of us.
The room was spacious and airy with all the expected facilities being clean plentiful.
The food was of excellent quality with a decent wine list and all reasonably priced.
The staff were all polite and discrete, the hotel is well kept and definitely worth a further visit.
Clarion Collection Makeney Hall
Lovely hotel in a nice setting.
Two villages a short taxi ride away and hotel has very friendly staff. Great value for money
I thoroughly recommend anyone to stay at the Makeney for a short break.
In tranquil surroundings, the hotel is perfect for anyone just wishing to get away for a short break. The food in the restaurant was first class, the staff were attentive without being overly so, our room was spacious and there are a couple of excellent pubs a few minutes away. We visited Chatsworth House which was just 20 miles north and there are also decent stop offs at Bakewell and Matlock Bath. Coming from the West Midlands the Makeney is not too far and we will be back.
Superb place to stay in a beautiful location
Staff friendly and helpful, hotel itself very easy to find yet nicely tucked away, within walking distance of a few okay eateries and an easy drive out of Belper.
Beautiful buildings and setting, wouldn't hesitate to recommend as a springboard for a Peak District holiday or similar.
Very peaceful location.
had a wonderful time in the surrounding areas
But very noisy heating system. Shower not powerful, toilet needs attention. Lovely large room and friendly staff.
Huge room with great bathroom and wonderful views.
Staff were very friendly and would definitely recommend this hotel.
An ideal venue for a relaxing break
This was a lovely hotel in a beautiful area of Derbyshire, The evening meal for the first night of our stay was divine and my desert of lemon cheesecake was the best dessert that I have ever eaten.
The 2 people who were with me for the evening meal also expressed their pleasure at the standard and content of the meal. The evening waiting staff were rather aloof and did find it somewhat difficult to smile. The rooms were very comfortable and of a good size and the breakfast were good. The day waiting staff were friendly and approachable.
A little Disappointed
We stayed for one evening paying a discounted price for a superior double.
The room was big but it was obvious it could have done with a lick of paint. The divan was badly stained and I couldn't understand why this was not covered with a valance as it was unsightly. We had eaten out earlier so didn't use the restaurant instead ordering sandwiches. They took 45 mins to be prepared and instead of being on bloomer as described in the menu, came on regular wholemeal bread. The one sandwich was dry and felt stale to the touch. Disappointing for £5.50 each. Due to this (and a conversation we overheard from another couple who had just eaten in the restaurant) we chose not to have breakfast the following morning, (£10 if you prebooked or £16 if you paid on the day) choosing to eat outside the hotel.
Beautiful unusual hotel
Booked via laterooms.com and chose to drive a few miles rather than book into a standard Travel Lodge.
Very impressive hotel. Did get the impression from the receptionist that she though I wasn't up to the standard of clientele she was used to, but it may have just been her manner. All other staff were lovely. Room was fine (room 14) - good view of the fire escape but I only paid £39 and it got dark soon. Room heated up very quickly, the other reviewer who mentioned it was LOUD was so right. Lashings of hot water, corner bath and the biggest walk-in closet I've ever seen.
Would I go back. Yes I would, but definitely not the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed in.
