After a very muddy (and socially distanced) walk to Rudyard, we were delighted to get a takeaway at the Hotel. Coffees were lovely; the ginger cake moist and delicious and I had the best bacon butty in Leek. Service excellent and all felt very safe. Will be back soon!

Booked this the day before at a great price of £65 for a small double, including breakfast. We had a little trouble finding it, but got there eventually. Its located right by Rudyard Lake and has ample parking. Its very welcoming and when we arrived several people were outside sat drinking. We had a lovely welcome by a young girl and checked in. Our room was Room 6, which is a small double, good shower and two small opening windows which was nice as the room was really warm! We had a wander to the lake which is literally two minutes away, it was quite busy with fishermen and families walking around. The steam train came through which was nice. As it turned dark, we headed back to the hotel. We sat in the bar and the other half was happy with the ales they had and I ordered wine. The food looked amazing so we ordered a roast beef dinner and gammon with egg and pineapple with a side of cauliflower cheese. A few minutes later, food was served and it was really good. Huge portions. We sat for another chatting with locals and then went up to the room. We had a great sleep and went down for breakfast at 9am (they serve until 11am on a Sunday). We both ordered a full English and they were amazing! There was several people coming in for breakfast that were not staying at the hotel which means it's popular. The staff during Saturday evening and Sunday morning were all really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There was even a gentleman asking if they could have a sandwich made as he was going walking, again absolutely no problem and sandwiches came from the kitchen within minutes. It was just a nice chilled stay over with good food, great service and we will definitely go back. Total cost for both meals and 6 drinks was £54. Parking is free and a good base for exploring the area. Leek is a 9 minute drive and we spent the day wandering around the Artisan Market, which is held on the first Sunday of every month.

Fantastic location for walking , this venue is dog friendly and the staff are always welcoming , when ever we have called in - food / drinks are great , and served by friendly professional staff . Venue is clean and following guidelines for current Covid situation - Well worth a visit . General manager is lovely , as is Dan behind the bar , a lovely chap and a great asset to this establishment . Please support this pub / hotel , we highly recommend a visit , you won’t be disappointed , 👍 Mike and lynda Dawson Staffordshire

Just to say what a fab time we had at the Hotel Rudyard . Only stayed one night ( just to have a get together with our kids) The owner and staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and made us feel really welcome.... couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The breakfast was superb with traditional oatcakes and generous supplies of tea and coffee.... We can’t wait to go back !

Booked last minute for a visit to the area. The price was quite decent although of course you can't read too much into that as the prices for rooms always fluctuate wildly. Location is off the beaten track so it could easily be really out of the way. I wouldn't want to have to drive all the way there if I wasn't wanting to be in the area specifically. As a hotel - and putting aside the Covid restrictions; Generally ok. It's not a 5-star, but it was comfortable enough and the staff were friendly. The reception area is a bit poky and not a very good welcome, but beyond that, it's generally ok. The room itself was fine (a family room), but a typical 'creaky English' - in need of some maintenance and a revamp. So many hotels are like that. In particular the shower had no water pressure and the toilet flush was temperamental. There is free wifi, but no reception in the bedroom. Nice view from the room though. It's a nice area - could be worth coming just to explore the area one day. The bar was good and the evening bar food was pretty good quality. The breakfast was also very good, although we missed a few things that you'd normally pick up from a buffet. When it's not there, you forget to ask specifically. Good points - staff were welcoming, breakfast was good Bad points - room needs a bit of maintenance I'd be happy to come again though if I had a reason to be in the area. I wouldn't want to pay any more than the price I got for this stay though.
