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.

Our splendidly shaped room overlooked the impressive vegetable garden and had effective reading lights on both sides of the comfortable bed; The staff were universally charming and helpful. Breakfast was very good, and dinner was everything that others have written about effusively. ' - Andrew Warren - August, 2019
'Our room was comfortable, clean and spacious. It overlooked the delightful vegetable garden. Breakfast included freshly squeezed juice, wonderful home-made granola, local bacon and sausages, perfect kippers.Throughout our stay, the staff were charming, helpful and friendly. The famous tasting menu was every bit as delicious as we had anticipated from all the write-ups in the GHG over many years.. And the eclectic wine list contained some real gems, some at a surprisingly reasonable price. ' - Andrew Warren - July, 2019
