The food was good and well presented but the place was deserted ! It was a Saturday night in September and there was only 1 other couple in! Had wanted to try this place for some time but was a little disappointed as although a beautiful countryside setting the experience really was nothing special. Won't be returning

We came for a family reunion and it worked perfectly. The management and staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. The setting was lovely and we were able to walk from the hotel (Froggart Edge). We had a superior room (Room 6) with a great view down the valley.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peak District hotel and restaurant, The Maynard, was refurbished in March 2008 to become one of the best independent hotels in the Peak District. The building dates back over 100 years and during the refurbishment we have tried to respect this heritage whilst at the same time bringing the accommodation up to 21st century contemporary standards. The Peak District views from the garden, restaurant and bedrooms are stunning, and may leave you wondering if you’re miles from civilisation. Fortunately, as well as benefiting from a beautiful and tranquil location, The Maynard is very well located for visitor's from the outside world; The Maynard is less than 15 minutes from Sheffield by train (you can hop off at Grindleford station a couple of hundred yards from our door), and within easy reach of the M1, A57 Snake Pass and A61 by car. ... more   less
