        We had a very enjoyable dinner on our first night as the hotel has 2 red rosettes, however on our next nigh t we were informed that the restaurant was full. There is only a bar restaurant as an alternative with a very basic menu. We ate there as the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and we did not wish another drive. On finishing our meal we discovered that the restaurant was half full.In further discussion with reception we were informed that the hotel did not have sufficient food to cater for any more guests. We have e-mailed the manager and as yet await a reply.

        Location - it is very close to the entrance to Dovedale with great views of the surrounding hills. The adjoining bar is very traditional with much character; it is relaxing and informal. Excellent breakfast.

        The look of the annex to the back of the hotel is not in keeping with rest of hotel.

        At our request due to the need to be close to the exit our room was changed. The first room was fine apart from its location but the second room was lovely. It was large, airy and bright and just at the top of the stairs, perfect for a claustrophobic sufferer. This made my wif'e's stay perfect, as she did not suffer any attacks at all. Thank you so very much for that. The bed was also probably one of the most comfortable we have slept in in the many hotels we have stayed in!

        Nothing really, although the bar food was not very good. Unfortunatley we did not use the restaurant which looked lovely as we had a 16 & 19 year old with us who would have struggled with the menu!

        The situation was beautiful. To wake in the morning and look out on the moors and walk around the hotel and see the views was an experience. The Staff were there to help at all times. The facilities were good and provided many areas for relaxation.

        the four poster bed was rather restrictive for an elderly couple!

        Value for money, stunning location, relaxed atmosphere, pleasant staff, good food.

        Decor a bit dated.

        Staff helpful and friendly, stunning views and very handy for Dovedale and Ashbourne..

        The hotel, though comfortable, is badly in need of redecoration and some refurbishment.

        My mother was very impressed, as was I, and asked me to say she thought that everything about the hotel was excellent. We each had spacious and comfortable double rooms where everything worked. The food was excellent and there were plenty of lounges. The location is amazing and look forward to a return visit with husband and dog to walk along Dovedale.

        While decor is highly appropriate to country house style, it is beginning to look a little tired. Perhaps more staff waiting on at dinner.
