Good staff responses . Additional facilities like the italian garden tearooms
The staff were wonderful, extremely helpful and very friendly. The location and surroundings were beautiful & the hall offered everything we needed for our short break
There was nothing we didn't like.
The location and surroundings was so beautiful we couldn't believe we were actually allowed to stay there! Rooms have everything you need. Basic but comfortable. Friendly staff. Good food reasonably priced and fantastic lounges and games room. To top it all very easy access to Alton Towers! We will definitely be back.
Loved the location
The ridulus price of food. Had a terrible night as we were by the stock door so there was a lot of bangs and crashes during the night. Also staff members stood at the bottom of the stairs and had loud conversions/phone calls at 23:00+ which is unacceptable.
The view and very friendly staff
Lovely location Very relaxing
Venue is everything. We went here as part of a two day cycle ride with kids 6 and 10 and it made the trip!
Location close to Alton Towers Beautiful buildings and grounds Relaxed and informal Self Catering choice as well Friendly and helpful staff
That I didn't have more time there
I love the location, the building was ok.
The facilities were craving with a good touch.the matresses were over used and i think needs replacements. The door lock cant lock when your inside.
Rooms were simple but very clean and comfortable
Although paid for wifi struggled to get it to work
too many beds in one room
In peak district, beautiful scenery Great price Good facilities
No mobile signals
Location, amazing building and surroundings, self catering facilities, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and comfy beds. Overall great experience, negative comments are very minor and would not stop me from recommending the hostel or returning.
Food was not as good as expected. Having seen the sample menu, I was expecting a little more than food straight from the freezer! Shower heads aren't very good, water basically dribbles out. Wifi only available in reception area.
Location is on the White Peak and ideally suited to walking directly from the youth hostel. Showers were great. Relaxing lounge. Polite and friendly staff. Food quality is good.
Food portions - looked like a child's portion so I'd recommend having three courses. People who snore and think it is acceptable for others to put up with it.
Fabulous stately home and grounds with all the facilities you need and more
Walls were a bit thin and snoring man next door kept me awake all night!
Great location and value for money ,clean ,friendly and helpful staff.
We were a group of boys and found this hotel for a decent price. The hotel was clean and it looked like a castle from the outside. The rooms were much better than expected.
One female staff was very rude and said that we should next time book another hotel because we made noise. Where in fact we came late and were settling in and unpacking. Some of the other guests made a lot of noise and their kids knocked on the door and ran away. Also some guests were really drunk and talking rubbish
The building , the grounds location , friendly helpful staff , great value
Location for walking was superb. Parking good. Lounge and games room useful. Breakfast ok.
In Room 302 banging doors in the late night/early morning as staff moved around meant that sleep was disturbed on two nights.
No wifi No phone Signal I`m a tall guy, bed was too small
Location and building are amazing - as the grandchildren said - it's like staying in a castle! Staff were great - very friendly. Breakfasts are delicious - lots of choice. Lounges are very comfortable and well equipped.
Our room was a bit noisy at night - noise of what sounded like toilets flushing all night. Food choice for evening meal was limited, especially the kids menu.
Swallows in the entrance hall! Beautiful countryside on the doorstep. Staff really helpful and let us have dinner despite not having booked in advance.
Parking charges situation a bit unclear. Given the wrong room (should have queried but too tired and didn't fancy shifting all our bags for one night!).
Room was very small for 4 people
Very pleasant, helpful staff. Very clean bed linen. Great value breakfast. Perfect location for visiting Alton Towers. Amazing scenery & grounds.
We were in room for 6 with ensuite. The room was very stuffy & window did not open enough to let in air. There was also a strong odour coming from toilet & shower area into the bedroom.
