The D&P is on the A52 4 odd miles outside of Ashbourne so it is in a great location for accessing the White Peak area, but to some degree you may feel limited in options at night. Dog friendly, but this is less pub than budget hotel/restaurant. Rooms (ask about dogs in rooms) are in chalets which we found clean...

When we first arrived we weren't sure what to expect , but once shown to our room by William we soon settled in. Staff are friendly, food is delicious, rooms are clean and cosy. We upgraded and stayed in a suite which was more than big enough, only one tiny criticism, more power in the shower would be great but...

We stayed for 3 nights, I paid £93.50 for the first night and we used a voucher that we received for Christmas for the next two. The room was a good size, the beds incredibly comfortable and the bedding clean and crisp. It was let down by the tired and dark decor which made the room appear dingy. The shower...

We stayed at the Dog and Partridge with our dog for one night. Firstly the good points:- 1. Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful particularly the Romanian bar man, young male waiter and maintenance man. 2. Chalet accommodation was clean and tidy. 3. Evening meal very appetising, tasty and plenty of it. 4. Good location to Dovedale...

You did chat to the receptionist before leaving you questioned your bill, you couldn't believe how much you had spent on drinks and extras, she went through your bill item by item. All our prices are on our menus and drinks prices are displayed in the bar. You never mentioned heating or anything else but agreed your bill was correct....

We went to this hotel a couple of years ago and enjoyed it enough to make a return visit. The accommodation has deteriorated, the room had mould on the walls in places and was generally tatty. Last time we went we ate in the hotel on both nights this time we sent the food back and complained. We ate out...

I find it quite strange that you didn't complain, durin your stay, and if your room was dirty why stay a second night As we have no record of food being sent back or a dirty room. We have looked at the pics carefully and they are blown up as the mark on the skirting is about a inch square...

We were bought this for a birthday present, we have been to Derbyshire before and enjoyed it. I feel there was nothing horrible about the place or nothing brilliant either. Our room which is an annex off the main building was very dated and in need of decoration, almost in a time warp! We had bunk beds in our room...

The Dog and Partridge is a 14th century building with later additions. As such it is quaint in the layout of the building. We had the third storey room which was not ideal for me as I'm disabled but that was our fault not theirs. The stairs were a bit much as they are all shapes and sizes as ŷou...
