Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A haven’ in the centre, Chris and Zoe Hipwell’s ‘very special’ Grade II listed town house hotel has ‘superb views’ of the valley, and ‘challenging walks’ from the door. Its quirky Victorian interior (tiled entrance hall, ornate glasswork, the original wood-and-glass bar) has great atmosphere – ask to explore the hotel’s cellars, once used by Job Hodgkinson, the Victorian-era homeowner, to store his locally brewed beer. Traditionally furnished bedrooms may have river views or a four-poster bed; the walnut-trimmed bathrooms have a roll-top bathtub or  walk-in shower. Dine on chef Leigh Matthews’s ‘excellent’ modern British menus in the restaurant; at breakfast, choose from varied options, including omelettes, kedgeree and a full vegetarian. A large terraced garden surveys village rooftops, the view stretching to the granite cliffs and River Derwent beyond. Sitting room, bar/ restaurant (open to non-residents; closed Sun eve). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV. Background music/radio. Garden. Limited on-site parking; additional parking nearby. Children (extra cot/bed £10) and dogs (by arrangement, £10 per night) welcomed. 8 bedrooms. Per room B&B £55–£145, D,B&B £81–£197. Closed Christmas.

Guest comments

'Lovely food for breakfasts and dinners. Small portions requested and provided for my elderly mother, vegetarian dishes for me. The rooms were very well equipped, the staff very obliging. We greatly enjoyed our stay. ' - Helen Davies - September, 2012
'Number 1 place to stay in our opinion. Old building full of character, and very homely. Every detail attended to. Everything and everywhere was spotless. Loose tea and welcome card from Amanda in the bedroom. Our standard room which looked and felt top notch. Credit to Diane & Gemma and the chef, breakfast was lovely. Check out the caves attached to the rear terrace. ' - Mark Wareing - August, 2012
