Good Hotel Guide Review

With ‘superb views’ of spectacular limestone cliffs, Chris and Zoe Hipwell’s Georgian town house hotel is ‘a very special spot’ near the River Derwent. Most of the listed property’s carefully restored Victorian features (tiled entrance hall, ornate glasswork, the original wood-and-glass bar) originate from the ownership of wine merchant Job Hodgkinson, and have been carefully restored. Some of the traditionally furnished bedrooms have river views; in one, a four-poster bed; in each, a handsome walnut-trimmed bathroom has a roll-top bath or walk-in shower. Leigh Matthews’s ‘excellent’ modern British menus are served in the restaurant; breakfast options include an omelette, kedgeree or a full vegetarian. ‘Excellent walks, some challenging’, straight from the door.

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
