Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We were welcomed with a complimentary Pimm’s,’ write Guide insiders, who dined at James Moffett’s historic stone manor house in the Peak District national park. And if it seems churlish to note that the Pimm’s could have been colder, they add: ‘This was our only criticism.’ In two lounges, ‘a jolly atmosphere’ prevailed. In the large dining room – ‘divided into several areas, each with a log fire’ – the efficient team served residents and locals. ‘The meal was really good in a refreshingly unpretentious way.’ Leek and potato soup, sea bream with a potato cake, hot pot, and panna cotta were enjoyed. The ‘good accommodation’ includes traditionally styled bedrooms in the main house and outbuildings. We do hear niggles (a cold room, a rushed dinner), but our readers love the spirit of the enterprise, the ‘undeniable charm’, such nice touches as a fridge with fresh milk, the offer of a free packed lunch, with ‘really good, freshly made sandwiches’. Walkers can pick up trails from the extensive grounds. A returning guest in 2018 concludes, ‘Not posh but straightforward. Amazing value.’ (Derek Lambert, SP, DL, and others)

Guest comments

'Continues to improve. Not posh; straightforward. Amazing value. Dinner had enough choice. Good sandwiches for the packed lunch; The garden was entertaining - more hens on the lawn than last time. Staff very helpful. ' - John Barnes - May, 2018
'This is now my favourite hotel! We loved everything about it. A warm welcome from courteous, efficient staff, good plain food, wonderful setting with quirky touches like the geese rattling by for their occasional feed.. Thoughtful snack lunches prepared ready to take away from the breakfast room was a bonus. I loved the occasional realistic artwork. ' - Diana Blake - July, 2017
'A great hotel with reasonable prices. The countryside is exceptional. The atmosphere is friendly and the dinners were delicious. Breakfast a little disappointing as all cooked beforehand. The manager, Steve. was very helpful and staff were keen to please. ' - Simon Rodway - March, 2016
