Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The hotel, its staff and food were exquisite,’ a reader writes of an anniversary visit to Max and Susan Fischer’s stone manor house, in a village on the fringe of Chatsworth Park. A shady drive leads to the house, built in 1907 in rich Jacobean style. ‘Very comfortable and well-appointed’ main-house bedrooms, replete with swags and drapes and luxury toiletries, overlook a garden with clipped yews and box hedges, flower borders, pond and arboretum. ‘Spacious and extremely comfortable’ Garden Rooms, in contemporary style, have their own private walled garden. From this luxurious base, guests can explore the Peak District, returning for dinner in the dining room, the new wine room or at chef Rupert Rowley’s tasting bench. ‘Fischer’s certainly deserves the Michelin star and other accolades’ for such dishes as Derbyshire pork jowl, piccalilli, langoustine, grilled pak choi – or, from the vegetarian menu, mushroom risotto, truffle mascarpone. Many ingredients are home-grown. At breakfast there’s freshly squeezed juice, honey from the Baslow Hall bees. For a gastropub lunch, look no further than Rowley’s down the road.

'My wife and I stayed here for our 12th wedding anniversary having stayed here on our wedding night. The hotel its staff and food were exquisite. Fischer's certainly deserve their Michelin star and other accolades. ' - Stan Buchanan - December, 2017
'First stay - bedroom in the main house, Rutland; very comfortable and well appointed. Meal first-rate, staff excellent. On a second visit the bedroom was in the garden. very spacious and extremely comfortable. Dinner again worthy of the chief's Michelin star. All hotel staff, again, were excellent. ' - Robert Cave - September, 2017
'Large comfortable garden room. Expansive superking bed, comfy sofas, modern airy feel. Restaurant - formal feel, good linen, dressy. Fine dining. Worth searching out the best of the more simply conceived dishes, though if you like ‘concept’ cooking there’s a certain amount of that on show too. Pretty gardens. Pleasant small village in prime Derbyshire countryside. ' - RO - June, 2017
'Our first-floor garden room was excellent. The other four garden rooms are grouped around a pleasant walled courtyard and garden. Staff are very polite and food is outstanding in its quality. Because most guests are of a senior generation the atmosphere in the dining room is rather muted. Breakfast is good, plenty of choice ' - Anthony Bradbury - August, 2015
