We had been walking for hours and came across this place and wanted a cup of tea and a Bakewell Tart- being in Bakewell and all that. I went inside and instantly thought it was way too posh for walkers but when we said we'd sit outside they seemed relieved. No Bakewell Tart. Only scones but when needs must.... it...

Wonderful lunch. We ordered the soup and cheese board and felt like we were rubbing elbows with the rich and famous. The food was wonderful, The service impeccable. The décor was top notch. This is not to be missed.

8 of us, (4 couples), stayed 4 nights here a week or so ago. Service was efficient, polite and always attentive. The hotel, set on the edge of a pretty, picture-perfect Peak village (famed for its annual Well-Dressing: Trinity Sunday onwards- June 11 in 2017), is a beautiful building in the local honeyed stone, surrounded by well kept gardens and...

Travelled to Ashford without booking and found this gem of a hotel. Amazing room, brilliant staff and a great breakfast menu. Set in the tranquil surroundings of the river it would be easy to miss this hotel, so glad we didn't. Felt very welcomed and the attention to detail in the rooms was brilliant, love the port and fruit. The...

This is my favourite hotel in the peaks for the following reasons: It's a beautiful building In a beautiful setting Not grand or ostentatious - just quality. The staff are superb (Jo is great fun) The food is exquisite. The set up is classic in terms of decor, service, bar area and grounds. Not plastic, not new. You can walk...

We booked dinner B&B for a three night stay. The quality of this hotel might be summed up by the fact that only 7 or the 14 rooms were occupied on any one of those three days. Quaint is one word to describe it. Odd would be another. No complaints about the quality of our garden room which was very...

As it was my birthday, and I was working at Bakewell show, we booked in here for 2 nights. Our friends had previously visited and said that the owners couldn't have been more accommodation. The room was quaint and the addition of nuts and sherry in the room was pleasantly different.

Disappointed with room, although very nicely appointed double bed was basic 4'6" so tight, extractor fan chimney right outside our window so noisy, wet room flooded so unpleasant, duty manager feigned no knowledge of the problem but my guess is its been reported daily by housekeeping. Meal was fine dining and was good but not great which is the expected...

Expensive for bed & breakfast. However, we had the set £45.00 dinner also. Enjoyed the whole stay very much. Service excellent. Quality of food very good. Excellent little touches - dressing gowns, fruit, nibbles, sherry, biscuits in room. Initially, bed seemed hard but was actually very comfortable with quality bedding. Our Greenfinch room could have taken a bigger than double...

Great setting for this hotel and the staff were excellent. The double bed was very small and very uncomfortable. They need to replace it with a wider one! We are not big people by the way!! Wi-fi did not work in the rooms and they need to sort that. Excellent breakfast. Poor nights sleep so would not go back
