The location of this hotel is very very good- with stunning views over the Derwent valley - a feast in itself. Good secure car parking, indoor swimming pool and above all the public rooms are spacious, and having visited in December lovely and warm! Staff attitude is first class!

This was our second visit to the hotel and upgraded to a premium room. Excellent staff, very comfortable room(bearing in mind the age of the building). The pool was clean, as were the changing rooms. Only negatives were: limited channels on the TV (Not the full freeview listing), relatively small tv considering the size of the room, ideally couldve done...

Room was nice - TV, great shower and bathroom, nice views and spacious. However the bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in, and pillows were dreadful. Consider bringing your own! Breakfast was plentiful, hotel very hot - you don't need to bring a jumper! Swimming pool was AMAZING, definitely worth the short walk. Location was...

Willersley Castle, like all the Christian Guild hotels, features special activity weekends of various kinds as well as catering to casual visitors. I have been to Willersley Castle several times as part of a craft weekend. We are given the large and comfortable music room to work in, with plenty of tables and chairs. The lounge is comfortable, and there...

Lovely hotel to stay in. Out the way so you get no fuss of traffic. Views from any room are amazing. The room themselves are a little small but still nice. Staff are friendly. Breakfast was good although they 'reserve' tables based on who's staying in the hotel but our name wasn't on any table reservation so they had to...

Willersley Castle is a 200 year old Grade II listed building, commissioned by the great industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright. It occupies a magnificent position on the edge of the Peak District, overlooking the River Derwent.Designed in the Georgian style, Willersley Castle stands in 60 acres of grounds ranging from meadows to limestone crags, on the outskirts of Cromford, just south of the spa town of Matlock Bath.It makes an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District National Park. With its dramatic gritstone edges and vibrant limestone valleys, Derbyshire is a walkers’ and climbers’ paradise, full of geological gems like the show-caverns at Castleton and the imposing cliffs of Matlock Bath.The area is steeped in history, from the grandeur of Chatsworth House to the elegance of the spa town of Buxton and the rich industrial heritage of Wirksworth, Cromford, and the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site ... more   less
