A True Dining Experience!

We always read reviews prior to staying anywhere and the reviews were not wrong.

The Chef Owner of this establishment knows exactly what he is doing with food. We were left in a state of OMG that was sooo good after each evening meal. We have never tasted food so divine. If you need somewhere to stay in the Derbyshire area, you need look no further. There are only four rooms and we were fortunate to have a front room with a fantastic view. Want to say a big thank you to Gareth, his welcome and customer service are excellent. It's also the little touches; on arrival, in our room, a small decanter of sherry, chocolates and grapes. An assortment of teas on the tea tray and some biscuits; just makes you feel so welcome when you are wanting to get away for a couple of days and re-boot. We highly recommend The Samuel Fox Country Inn!

Comfortable hotel in beautiful surroundings

This is really a restaurant with rooms - which is why I chose to stay here when I had a business appointment in Buxton.

The accommodation itself is very good: comfortable rooms with good Wi Fi, television and various nibbles. From the bedroom windows you have a fantastic view of Bradwell Edge and in other circumstances I would have been getting my boots on for a walk. Food, as one would hope, is a highlight. At dinner you have a choice of an exceptionally good value Early Bird menu or a more ambitious a la carte. My meal was substantial, the ingredients were high quality and the cooking of a high standard. An early breakfast next morning was equally impressive. The chef and manager are both friendly and welcoming. In all, you will not find a better place to stay in this part of the world.

Great place to visit for a special occasion

This was our second stay and we had a great time again.

Staff had changed from our last stay but were great and the place is in good hands with a friendly team. Our room was spotless and filled with some nice welcome tea, coffee, chocolates, biscuits and grapes.

Bradwell is a nice village to visit and we enjoyed a couple of drinks with a great view down the valley at the Globe pub in the village which is also worth a visit and good traditional and friendly pub. Steak for dinner back at The Samuel Fox was a highlight and I just about managed a very nice chocolate pudding with white icecream for pudding. The Derbyshire breakfast the next day topped off a very nice stay and we look forward to the next time we visit. Thanks to all the staff for making it a nice stay.

Overpriced and overated. Very very disapointed!!!!

I booked this hotel because the reviews were so good.

We paid £260.00 for 2 nights B&B for my husband and I. The room was ok, but decor very floral and old fashioned. The entrance hall had coconut style matting which was marked in many places as was the stair carpet up to our room. The en suite looked ok, but all of the taps moved when they were being turned on and off. The blind had black dirty marks all over it. There was only the window sill in the en suite to put our toiletries, no shelves. The thing that made me most upset was that someone came into our room to replenish tea etc, but never emptied the bin or gave us clean towels. I definitely expected clean towels for £260.00!!!!. I did read in the handbook clean towels were available on request, but had to find that out for myself, so missed out on clean towels. Our room faced a busy road, which was noisy and kept us awake, so did the noise of music and voices from the dining room below. Breakfast was small portions and average tasting. We certainly did not receive the warm welcome everyone mentioned. All they wanted to do was try to get us to book evening meals. Another reason we booked was because Friday was stated as being Tapas night and the chef was award winning. The menu we were given for both nights was the same and there was not tapas on the menu. I am a vegetarian and there was only one vegetarian option, which i didn't like. I would not want to eat the same dish twice in a weekend if I had liked it, so we had to find somewhere else to eat. There were only 3 beer pumps. There wasn't anywhere to sit to just have a drink. It was clearly set for diners. In mine and my husbands opinion it was definitely not worth the money. We have stayed in much, much nicer and friendlier accomodation for £80.00 a night.
