Newton House Hotel

We had a most enjoyable stay not withstanding the atrocious weather.

Room 16 was a good size with ample storage and a comfortable bed. The en-suite facilities were of a good standard and the shower worked well. The breakfast was enjoyable but a one-hour window ending at 9am was a challenge as we were on holiday. The only other minor problem was getting into the hotel after 10pm. We found the code did not unlock the back door as promised but fortunately were rescued by one of the staff. Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Convenient short stay next to the Tissington Trail

We have a comfortable one night stay in a compact but adequate room.

The hotel is conveniently literally right on the Tissington Trail cycle and walking route. The entrance to the hotel carpark from the road is easy to miss, and it would be a good idea to have an additional sign further back on the road from Ashbourne. First impressions were a little clouded by the fact that the surrounding fields were having slurry spread on them, but the rural odour would soon clear. We would stay there again, and take the bikes this time.

We were chased by the hotelier to advise when we were scheduled to arrive.

This despite advising thet we had experienced problems with traffic.

A pleasant suprise

The new managers have been in 4 months so it is work in progress after moving into a busy hotel.

The dinner menu at the moment is basic but the food is good, breakfast is good the friendly staff and approachable management who are interested in their jobs made it an comfortable pleasant stay. Would definitely stay there again if we were in the area.

Great B&B

Hotel manager friendly, cheerful and helpful.

Loves his job. Decor may be a bit tired but our room was very quiet, the beds were extremely comfortable, the shower efficient. We were in the main building. The internet connection was excellent. TV good, coffee and tea making facilities provided. At the end of a long day it was good to be able to relax and not have to go out in the evening to find somewhere to eat. The main meals are filling, and there is a bar so you can also have a drink at a reasonable price. I can't comment on the puddings as we didn't have one. The full English breakfast looked good but we had the continental which is included in the room price. A good choice of fruit juice, yogurt, prunes, grapefruit segments, cereals etc and you make your own toast so it's fresh and warm. The staff are chatty and friendly and the cat and working collie dog from the farm next door are often around and happy to be made a fuss of. We only stayed one night as we were only in the area for the week-end. It's under new ownership and improvements are planned over the next few months but in the meantime it's a nice place to stay.

Our stay

Good clean well appointed hotel in large grounds.

Excellent choice of breakfast and surprised that evening bar meals where available at the right size/ price. Only down side, not hotel's fault, was no mobile phone signal though we found out that vodafone's signal was there 30m down the footpath at the bottom of the garden. How strange.

A comfortable stay at a convenient location

Very satisfied with our stay overall but although we had a room at the rear, there was still some traffic noise from the A515 which is quite a busy road.

The only other problem we experienced was that the toilet seat and lid became detached in the bathroom but after reporting this, it was quickly remedied by the staff. We discovered that the bar meals available in the evening were good value.

Had a one night stay to do a little exploring.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. They couldn't do enough for us, even locking our bikes away. Lovely clean room, just a shame we only got one night away.

Lovely Views

We had a great stay at this hotel, the room was lovely and big, however the bathroom could have been a bit more updated.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had an evening menu which was very limited, but it was their first night of trying out food, if they can accommodate a bit more on what's on offer I think it will be successful. The price was good value for money.
