We enjoyed a very comfortable room with splendid garden & countryside views for our two night stay. All the staff were friendly and professional in their work creating a relaxed atmosphere for our stay. Restaurant and bar facilities were excellent. Well done 'The Maynard' & staff we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I was fortunate enough to win a 2 night stay at The Maynard, so it was excellent value from the outset!! The hotel has a great character and nice gardens and is really well located in the Peak District so an ideal walking area. The hotel provides a number of local walks from the hotel ranging from around 3 miles...

My husband and I took my mum for Sunday Lunch for her 92nd birthday. The meal was delicious. My husband and I had the roast beef. The Yorkshire pudding was ginormous but so light and the beef was melt in the mouth. All three of us enjoyed the meal. The staff were attentive but discrete and the unhurried ambience suited...

My wife booked the Maynard for her (significant) birthday celebrations a couple of years ago, and I was happy, if not very original, in following suit. The event coordinator, Jaegar, was extremely helpful and flexible, and the chef produced a super menu. Service was courteous and prompt, and the staff did everything to accommodate us. Rooms are spacious and well-equipped,...

Stopped at the Maynard last night for a bite to eat and although there was a minor mix-up with the food, it was sorted out straight away with apologies and a reduction in the bill. The staff were absolutely lovely and the hotel itself a really pleasant place to have a meal. We'll definitely be going back.

Visited here for a family wedding, it was a very lovely hotel. Plenty of parking and a lovely day all together. The food was nice, and hotel areas spacious and clean. One pointer I would advise is that during the upstairs wedding ceremony the air conditioning units were very noisy and this made it quite difficult to hear the ceremony...

A real gem! Can't fault it on food, service and location. Our room was lovely and very spacious, with a great view. The restaurant meal was excellent! Main courses and cheese board were particularly good. Really friendly, efficient and professional staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Nice to see them helping each other out if there was something...

We held our daughter's wedding at the Maynard on Easter Monday and it was absolutely perfect. We were their fifth wedding in five days and we were a little bit apprehensive that staff fatigue may have set in. We need not have worried.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peak District hotel and restaurant, The Maynard, was refurbished in March 2008 to become one of the best independent hotels in the Peak District. The building dates back over 100 years and during the refurbishment we have tried to respect this heritage whilst at the same time bringing the accommodation up to 21st century contemporary standards. The Peak District views from the garden, restaurant and bedrooms are stunning, and may leave you wondering if you’re miles from civilisation. Fortunately, as well as benefiting from a beautiful and tranquil location, The Maynard is very well located for visitor's from the outside world; The Maynard is less than 15 minutes from Sheffield by train (you can hop off at Grindleford station a couple of hundred yards from our door), and within easy reach of the M1, A57 Snake Pass and A61 by car. ... more   less
