Lovely old place right in the centre of town with a small first come first served car park but free parking if you can get in - we stayed on the Christmas/farmers market w/end so paid more than we would usually pay - the rooms in the outbuildings are lacking in natural light & not laid out very well (try...

thepeacockbakewell, An old raincoat will never let you down, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

You know sometimes you simply cannot win as in this case, as CORTINA1600E comes as is I feel his common want, and posts what is in all honesty a nice review of his time spent at the Peacock in Bakewell on what was an insanely busy weekend in Bakewell - especially in November, yes November folks, but still finds time,...

We stayed at the Peacock for 2 nights and had a thoroughly lovely time. The food is amazing, we both choose from the specials board on the Friday night and the Saturday. The staff made our stay all the better, great chats and looked after us for the whole stay. I wanted to write this as so many people just...

Bakewell is a honey pot for weekend visitors and therefore rooms come at a premium. However for £149 per night for a double room without breakfast is a little steep. They have decorated the rooms in what they think are tasteful Farrow and Ball colours. I personally love their paints and use them all the time however they just haven't...

thepeacockbakewell, If only closed minds came with closed mouths, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

When you finish off your little ditty Classylady61 with a statement "I wouldn't recommend going to Bakewell' - then I feel we are basically on a hiding to nothing, because where is your class coming from (oh yes self opinionated), because Bakewell is a beautiful little tourist town that I can't even imagine how many people come to the Peak...

We booked the Peacock for an overnight stay before a funeral. The room was comfortable and modern, in an annexe next to the main pub. There was a good shower, the room was well heated and the wifi was free. We had a good meal in the pub in the evening and the breakfast the next morning was superb -...

My wife and I stayed at the peacock for 2 nights over the August bank holiday weekend. From the desciption and photos on the website we were expecting a much higher standard of service and quality of food. One of the biggest disappointments was the level of customer service. The owner was rude and when we mentioned that we were...

thepeacockbakewell, Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy, at The Peacock Bakewell, responded to this review

So no wi-fi JustinChris and we are deemed to give poor customer service..... One thing in life you possess Justin or is it Chris is a lack of a sense of humour, because I was not in the slightest rude to you when you mentioned you couldn't obtain wi-fi in your room, I was simply trying to make light of...

Had a wonderful three night stay at the Peacock at the end of July. So lucky to have managed to book in at short notice and we weren't disappointed with the room allocated.

We stayed at The Peacock for 2 nights in July 2016 for a short trip to Bakewell. Room was clean, spacious and nicely furnished and the Peacock is centrally located in Bakewell. Didn't eat at the hotel other than for breakfast, which was included, but that too was excellent with masses of choice. Couldn't fault and would definitely stay again...

We stayed at the Peacock on the hottest two nights of the year with our baby and they really helped accommodate us by providing us with a fan and bringing the amazing food up to our room while the baby was asleep.

We stayed 2 nights in room 4 which we immediately liked - generously sized, clean and comfy. Our friend's room on the other side of the building was less generous, apparently.
