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.
