Good Hotel Guide Review

Take in ‘superb views’ over the valley from Chris and Zoe Hipwell’s ‘very special’ Georgian town house hotel. The quirky Victorian house (tiled entrance hall, ornate glasswork, the original wood-and-glass bar) has a rich history – ask to explore the atmospheric cellars. Traditionally furnished bedrooms may have river views or a four-poster bed; the walnut-trimmed bathrooms have a roll-top bath or an Edwardian-style walk-in shower. Leigh Matthews’s ‘excellent’ modern British menus are served in the restaurant; breakfast has lots of choice, including omelettes, kedgeree and a full vegetarian. A large terraced garden has views stretching to the granite cliffs and the River Derwent beyond. ‘Challenging walks’ nearby.

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
