Good Hotel Guide Review

Fine dining is the order of the day at Max and Susan Fischer’s Jacobean-style Edwardian mansion in ‘prime Derbyshire countryside’, approached by a chestnut tree-shaded drive. Chef Rupert Rowley’s Michelin-starred cooking, including ‘some simply conceived dishes and a few more conceptual ones’, is ‘outstanding in its quality’, guests say. Dress for dinner in the dining room, or perch at the tasting bench in the kitchen if you prefer a buzz. Canapés and a ‘surprise savoury’ might be followed by oxtail ravioli; miso-glazed pork jowl, brown shrimp, coconut. Vegetarians, rejoice: fine menus use abundant produce from the kitchen garden. In the main house, spacious bedrooms are traditionally styled, with leaded windows overlooking mature landscaped acres. ‘Modern, airy’ Garden House rooms, grouped around a ‘pleasant’ walled courtyard and garden, are ‘excellent’. All rooms have Egyptian cotton sheets, organic toiletries, comfy seating, fluffy towels and robes. After a breakfast of freshly squeezed juice, home-made granola, local bacon and sausages, perhaps toast with honey from the hives, take a stroll to Chatsworth House. (Richard Osborne, AB)

Guest comments

'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 - large with private entrance not shared with other guests. The other four garden rooms are grouped around a pleasant walled courtyard and garden. If the sun is out the main gardens are delightful for a drink and chat. 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, not helped by the expectation, largely observed that gentlemen will wear jackets and perhaps ties. Breakfast is good, plenty of choice ' - Anthony Bradbury - August, 2015
'This is a very good hotel. We had a bedroom in the garden courtyard which was well equipped and very spacious. Excellent bathroom.Very friendly service and excellent food although some of the menus are expensive.A very pleasant stay. altogether. ' - David Craig - May, 2013
