Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spent a night at the Maynard for my birthday with dinner bed and breakfast. I couldn't fault it. The room was luxurious and comfortable and every meember of staff was polite friendly and helpful. The food and wines were excellent and Ruby took great care to make sure we got the birthday meal I was hoping for. After a hearty breakfast in the dining room looking out into the garden and the Derbyshire hills, I feel I will definitely have to come back.

We got married at The Maynard in April 2024, and wow. This was truly the most amazing day, and we will not forget it! Lisa and her incredible team coordinated our perfect day from start to finish, and left an impression on all our guests, who were well looked after and were blown away by the beautiful location. Lisa kept everything in check all day and ensured everyone was happy. We are truly grateful for everything she and the team did that day and we will not forget it! The room was stunning, the private garden was beautiful and the bars well stocked! Amazing day filled with so much love and we want to do it all again! Thank you to The Maynard. If you’re thinking of having your wedding here - do it.

Came for sunday lunch today and it was amazing! Drinks and food were brought out very promptly and we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing service, drinks were always refilled as soon as they were running low and food was was absolutely amazing! Our waitress, Wiktoria, was amazing and attentive despite a big rush from wedding guests coming to the bar. All staff were great, will definitely be returning.

We booked for a weekend away as the hotel was 1.5 hours from our home. We turned up and had a drink the the bar - all of the staff were so friendly. We then checked in and our room was immaculate. We had a lovely nights sleep and the bathroom was stunning. We then had dinner (which was amazing) and breakfast the next morning. The only thing that could be improved was the coffee machine was leaking, but with how amazing everything else was we didn't mind. We loved it so much that we have booked in again in August for our honeymoon!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and very reasonably priced. The bar provides a great place to relax and the food in the restaurant is first class. This was a business trip but the hotel is very well located for exploring the Peak District National Park. Will definitely be returning.

We stayed for one night. I had booked a standard room but the Maynard kindly upgraded us to a suite with amazing views. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, the shower was powerful and lots of space for storing clothes. The biggest positive was the staff, who were all incredibly friendly and helpful. We ate at the restaurant in the evening and the service was brilliant. The food was very tasty but portions were a little small after a long walk. Breakfast was also great quality. It would have been nice to have had some extra toast but we weren't sure if this was available. One tip would be to take earplugs. I forgot mine and the noise from the bar was very loud, but I could also hear other people coughing, talking etc and the cleaner hoovering at 5am. It's an old property and sound travels.

We had our wedding here this March just a couple of weeks ago and we cannot fault their services. We had the wonderful Lisa as our wedding coordinator, she made the whole process seamless with her friendly and bubbly personality and was very detailed in her communication which made us feel at peace and help us enjoy our special day to fullest. The food was delicious and venue was absolutely amazing. We can't recommend them enough! Josiah & Jess
