We cannot recommend this hotel enough! We have just returned from a 2 night stay and could not have been more impressed! The location, the staff, the rooms and of course, the food!! Everything has been thought of and is run beautifully!
We were even allowed to bring our Labrador with us - thank you so much for putting up with him..... spoilt at the best of times!
We ate Dinner in the dining room both evenings and the food is a major attraction. (I have just finished my letter to The Good Food Guide - why ever is it not already listed??!!) Beautifully balanced and the flavours of each course wonderful! We were looked after by Jenni - the most gracious of hosts - and Laura who was also most charming. In fact every single member of staff went out of their way to ensure we were looked after. The walk that was recommended to us was from the hotel to Bakewell - it nearly finished me off but the Lab thought it was the best!! Great gardens in the Hotel too - most useful!!
We can't wait for an excuse to experience their hospitality again - the sooner the better. I urge you to go and try it for yourself - you won't be disappointed! Oh, and they even organised tickets to Chatsworth for us at a 20% reduction!! Go, go go!!
Thanks to all and see you soon.......xxx
