How to Get There
What a lovely hotel... we booked a 2 day Groupon deal with low expectations and we were very surprised to find that this is a very nice hotel that has recently been refurbished. The staff excellent, the room lovely and the food very good. We had 2 spa treatments included in the offer and we went back the following day for 2 more! This 2-day stay has to be one of the nicest and best value breaks I've ever had! This hotel is really trying hard to cater to many different types of people and it's doing an excellent job... We will definitely be back with or without a Groupon!
We arrived on the 17th of March which was a Saturday. Unfortunately we were running late, about half an hour so just missed our appointment for two people for a massage. When we arrived there was only time for one so my girlfriend had it, she said it was great.
Spa facilities were small but not busy. We had no awkward experiences and everyone had space to do what they wanted. The spa was very clean and towels and robes were provided.
Our room was then ready after the two hours in the spa. We had paid extra for a superior suite and checked into room 9. Wasn’t too sure what made this room “superior” as it was rather small but was big enough for just the two of us with an en-suite with bath and shower combo. The room was again very clean with ESPA wash gear provided and a couple of bottles of water. Might be an idea not to upgrade to a superior as it just seems like a normal hotel room! But it was well decorated and very clean.
After checking in and moving into the room we had a lovely cream tea with hot scones and complimentary tea and coffee. Do note that if you want a hot chocolate or a different beverage they do charge you extra but that’s nothing major. The scones were probably the best I’ve had with included cream and jam. We also ordered off the bar menu too as we were very hungry, the hot food was also great too. We did have to go hunting down a waitor to take our order for about 15 minutes but the food service was very fast.
In the evening we decided not to eat off the three course set menu as we only fancied somthing light so we both went for the Caesar salad and gelato desert which was lovely. Ambiance of the rook was calm and relaxed with piano music and great attention from the staff. There was a very friendly and smiley young guy in the resteraunt but unfortunately we didn’t get his name, but he was great so give him a tip!
The reception desk provided a card for a taxi service to go into Matlock and we spent the rest of the evening there. Mad Hatter Gin Bar has nice cocktails but is rather expensive and The Crown whetherspoons had the usual merry atmos which was nice.
The following morning was the amazing continental breakfast which was great. Lots of choice. Muffins, pastries, cereal, fruit, fish and bread. The food was very fresh and a lot nicer than a stodgy cooked breakfast. Can’t go wrong with continental.
Finally checked out for 11!
Overall the experience was great. Lovely room, staff and facilities.
Only room for improvement would be the tagging of a “superior” room and having to hunt for staff in the bar, other than that it was great.
Great setting, all the hype of reviews and the hotel website were far too generous for the reality of our experience. No spa available over two days, tv didn't work, moved rooms where heating was off. The menu choice is pitiful, displayed on a laminated A4 paper with spelling mistakes. Only continental breakfast, lacking management. For me I had a special occasion made embarrassingly ordinary for a premium price.
Excellent weekend. Highly recommended and amazing food.
Spent a rainy weekend at this fab hotel. Spa facilities are great and the restaurant is a hidden gem. We'll definitely be heading back here I. The near future.
Absolutely amazing massage by Renarta (I am not sure on the spelling) the best massage I think Iv ever had! The hotel surprised us both with the lovely decor WONDERFUL service and the lovely evening meal in the restaurant, the room was lovely and very quiet. Afternoon tea with 2 scones! I don’t drink coffee but my partners said the coffee was lovely too. Really really nice hotel to stay at, we got an amazing offer on groupon at the time but I would definitely come and stay again.
