Excellent acommodation clean , bedroom was lovely and fresh fruit etc a nice touch

It said breakfast included but not English it was continental which we ordered a £6.00 each which I assumed was less a credit for the continental one we passed on.

Dinner was expensive at £45.00 for 2 courses.

Good secret escape

The location and the surroundings of the hotel were perfect .

Ideal for those looking to have a tranquil break away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Area is perfect for walking and for visiting local attractions such as Haddon Hall, Chatsworth and the market town of Bakewell. The slight disappointment was the noise we experienced in the room at night. Having been told that only three of the rooms were occupied that evening (Sunday), the residents had all been put into adjoining rooms instead of spreading us out in the hotel and giving us maximum privacy. The walls were obviously thin as we could hear the occupants in the next room coughing, switching lights on and off, flushing the toilet and having a shower . Real shame as it took away the edge of what would have been the perfect stay. This wouldn't deter us from booking again, but we would ask for a room on the first floor as opposed to be in a room off the corridor from the reception area. The staff were helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome.

Beautiful little hotel in lovely little hamlet

Had a wonderful night with my husband on Valantines day.

Staff we're extremely attentive and our meal was lovely. Particularly enjoyed the lobster and crayfish ravioli, yummy. Thank you to all the staff for a relaxing evening.

Riverside House One Night

Superb views from the room overlooking the river, from our small room "Lillie".

Very high standard of food for a three course meal for £45 - delicious. The only downside is value for money, i.e. the least expensive bottle of wine cost £21.50, but having said that service was impeccable and you get what you pay for. Looking forward to staying again, sometime in the future.

Beautiful country house hotel.

Excellent hotel, Nice clean room with patio doors and garden view.

Very friendly and helpful staff and fantastic cooked breakfast. Extra touches in room(fresh milk and coffee, fresh fruit, nuts, chocolates and small decanter of sherry) were wonderful. We visit our son, who lives in the area, quite regularly and we intend to return for lunch in the near future and we will certainly stay again at some point in the future.

Superb accommodation and service

A brilliant hotel, old fashioned in style but clean, well maintained and serving amazing food.

The service was excellent throughout our stay. Also in the perfect location for sightseeing and walks through some truly stunning scenery. We would definitely return.
