“Loved every minute”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

From the very moment we walked into the hotel, we immediately felt at ease, welcomed and relaxed. The staff at East Lodge really are fantastic.
We were shown to our AMAZING room - the bridal suite - gorgeous four poster bed, with a lovely roll top bath - and TV!!! The staff were very attentive and showed us around the room.
Now, I am the most fussy eater but can honestly say that the meal was the best I have had in a long time - maybe ever, my partner also enjoyed his that much that he booked a champagne afternoon tea for his parents christmas present!
Will certainly revisit for a meal and to stay, and I think that the fact this is a family run venue really shows.

My partner and I stay here on Friday evening on our way home after collecting a new car from Wilmslow. When we arrived at 6pm the car park was packed and the reception area was full of people, what a night mare!!. Then the manager popped up from behind the reception counter and greeted us very warmly, saying "these people will be gone soon they have just had a lunch party" and showed us to an free upgraded honeymoon room. The room was big with a very nice outlook, the bathroom had a large rolled top bath and walk in shower. Dinner was very nice, the waiter and waitress were perfectly attentive. so to a perfect nights sleep, breakfast was perfectly cooked local produce. We had a really nice stay at East Lodge and after driving around the beautiful peak district, vowed we would come back for a long weekend next year.

Friendly welcome and staff at this family run hotel. Lovely four-poster bedroom at a good room rate. Room was well furnished with superb bathroom where you can watch tv whilst in the bath. Lovely hot power shower. Dinner was excellent - one of the best meals I have had out! Superb breakfast with lots of choice. Apart from inadequate instructions for tv in bedroom (staff came to show us immediately we asked) I cannot fault this hotel.

My partner and I stayed here overnight on a short break to the Peak District. The hotel is set a fantastic location and close to Chatsworth House, Bakewell and retail therapy!

Our room was spacious and comfortable with a tv to watch whilst relaxing in the bath.

Now onto the dinner which we both found to be of high quality but the quantity (particularly for my boyfriend) was simply too small - and he is a whippet in size. Why do hoteliers/restaurants think that fine dining should equate to tiny portions?!

Overall we would stay again but ensure that we were not too hungry at dinnertime.

We had another great weekend at the hotel and were put in the executive suite and booked the Chatsworth break. Our friends were also staying at the hotel and we joined them on the Saturday night for our evening meal. Food with exception of desert(a couple of us had the cheese plate) was great although service on Saturday was much slower than expected due to a large party. However, the staff were attentive, apologetic and ensured we had what we needed while we waited, ideally it would have been better if they had told us earlier we were going to be eating 1 hour later than planned.
The experience on Saturday did not spoil the weekend and we will definitely will be revisiting next year.
