Score from 226 reviews Superb
Location ,warm friendly atmosphere great food and great staff.
Poor mobile phone signal and no internet in the bedrooms.
Tranquil, hilly setting (mobiles don't operate hurrah!) and great staff
Nothing in particular to dislike
The hotel is very close to Dove Dale. I was also very pleased that I requested gluten-free bread and unlike many multi-starred hotels they provided it.
The weather, but this is not under the control of the hotel!
Food, room, location, staff, everything really. Afternoon tea in front of a log fire - bliss. Relaxing and peaceful. Will be visiting again, perhaps for longer than a weekend break next time.
Internet/WiFi access was a nuisance. For a longer stay it would be a real problem as we need to stay in touch with the office.
We were made to feel special by everyone and the location is superb
Very cheerful and helpful staff, pleasant rooms, good restaurant, comfortable bed, almost no cell signal (great if you dont want to be disturbed!) beautiful location.
Bathroom could have done with some updating.
wi fi connection did not work
Very close to Dovedale and local walking routes. Restaurtant staff very good, with great food.
Staff attention/help Food Views
Comfortable, friendly hotel in an exceptional location. Restaurant menu good with some interesting twists; food and service both very good. Would benefit from highlighting locally sourced produce. Staff were attentive and genuinely helpful. Room and bed was very comfortable and well decorated.
no mobile phone signal - mixed blessing! Not great hotel WiFi
Fabulous location with beautiful views, delicious food.
The reception area is untidy & does not give a good first impression. Our rooms were clean but dated as were the bathrooms, the dining room and the general look of the hotel. I understand the hotel has changed hands recently so I hope it is updated to reach it's potential as the location and food are excellent.
quiet and comfortable, pleasant staff, good food, clean and tidy. great views and walks nearby. peaceful and relaxing
views food everything was perfect
Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. We have stayed quite a few times before. The peace and tranquillity make it a very relaxing break away from it all but with great walks to Dovedale very close by.
It was a shame to have the same menu both nights of our stay. Also a steak knife would have been appreciated for the steak.
the breakfasts were superb the room was spacious The bath had a spa facility which I thoroughly enjoyed
no internet access in room
Good quiet position. Although only been reopened since June There are many lessons to be learned by the new owners. Peeling paint around the windows dusty bathroom. Unlikely to return. Certainly not value for money
Over attentive waiters in the resteraunt our plates were taken away before we had really finished eating. Vegetables not cooked and food lukewarm and this was on a very quiet evening
The lovely old beams in our bedroom and in the Dovedale bar. The staff without exception were absolutely lovely - very polite, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there is the choice of eating in the bar or the restaurant in the evening which is ideal especially if you don't want a huge evening meal. The setting of the hotel is wonderful - although be warned - it is surrounded by hills and you can't get amobile signal on any network! Nice if you don't want to be diturbed though!
There was a problem with the radiator in our bedroom i.e. it wasn't working! But one of the staff brought us an electric heater which was very effective. Also the fan in the bathroom didn't work and since there was no window this was not ideal.
Staff very friendly and helpful Food excellent. Reasonable bar prices. Relaxing atmosphere
V. small TV!
Food, location and staff all excellent
Cold room on arrival Paid high price for room that had promise of being superior but not achieved it yet. Noticed better discounts on booking.com on return. Full price £20-30 over the odds in present form.
No phone coverage, wifi only in reception.
The location is superb base for exploring the area by foot. The hotel has been extensively refurbished and there are some lovely quite lounges for chilling out in. Our room was large , tastyfully decorated and clean. Lovely view from the window. Food from the bar was good value and the breakfast in the dining room was great, with wide choice of cereals, pastries and fruit juices. The following cooked breafast used good quality ingredients.
Possibly have some background lounge music in the bar / dining room to add a bit of class.
The views from the windows. Polite and attentive staff. Wonderful breakfast. Comfy bed.
No negatives at all as far as we are concerned.
Lovely setting, fantastic evening meal, quiet, easy to find, great location for walking
food steak, were tough
