Stayed at this hotel for the weekend as attending family wedding at a hotel near by.
On arrival receptionist very welcoming and allocated us a room on the lower ground floor. On viewing the room I was dissapointed as I was expecting a view of the golf course, not of shrubs and mud! We asked if we could be allocated another room with a better view which the receptionist duly did.
The rooms are very nicely decorated, large comfortable bed (although zip and link). Sofa bed, large desk, table and chairs to sit and lookout from the room at the view. Bathrooms nice and clean and new.
We ate in the Rooster bar which was very nice , average pub prices. It was very busy with locals which is always a good sign.
Breakfast was very good a little less so on the secound morning. The Derbyshire full breakfast was very nice however on the secound day it was missing items and dried up a little. I think this was due to a large group being served and it being later in the morning.
The hotel is in a good location with golf on your doorstep and lots of local attractions close by, we visited Alton Towers before arriving at hotel and on our departure made our way to the museum of childhood which also was not far away.
Reception were very helpful with travel directions and booking a taxi to take us to our wedding. However the taxi company they use was not very good we got lost! and they go at silly speeds down country roads.
I would recommend this hotel, it is in a good location with lovely comfortable rooms and a good hearty breakfast and a nice pub and restraunt next door.
Tip:-No cash machine near by.
Overall we had a lovely weekend away enjoy local attractions and attending a family wedding.
