I regularly visit the Cologne area of Germany on business and admire the standard of restaurants and hotels over there, so when two of my colleagues from Cologne decided to come to Rotherham for a sales meeting I needed to find an equally impressive venue.
Fortunately I chose The Peacock and gave them a real taste of how we can match them for good food, first class service and the most beautiful setting !
From the minute we arrived on Monday afternoon until departure this morning we were treated royally by the manager, Jenny and her team.
We were booked in to the dining room but after a drink or two in the bar, decided to stay there and within 10 minutes a table was made ready and there was no problem with ordering from both menus. The food was superb as was the service.
My bedroom (number 1 ) overlooked the beautiful garden and had everything you could ask for, water, slippers tea and coffee making facilities, Aveda toiletries, huge comfortable bed - I could go on and on.
Breakfast is of the same high quality.
My only tiny gripe would be the lamp shades in the breakfast room and the other modern furnishings which are totally out of place in such a lovely old building.
In conclusion, I would say England 1 Germany 0, bring on the next game !!

Room Tip: bedrooms on the front can be noisy when the traffic starts early morning

A fabulously welcoming hotel offering fly fishing on the Haddon Hall Estate waters. Fishing women made very welcome. The river guide was courteous, knowledgable and fun. The food is amazing, the beds very comfortable and the whole experience relaxing. A perfect country hotel experience. Thank you Jenni Mackenzie and Bernie Maher.

This is a well located hotel in the middle of the Peak District well located for visiting nearby Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.

It is located in an old stone medieval building in the nice Derbyshire village of Rowsley.

It has been well restored and offers good accommodation and nice modern decor complementing the old building but and it is a big BUT!

The arrival was awkward having to park in the car park at the back of outbuildings and somehow find the entrance at the from on the corner of a T junction. We felt on arrival that we were a problem for the staff to dispatch as quickly as possible to their room and there was no warmth in the welcome when we found the counter tucked away from the entrance. Secondly, my wife is recovering from a broken hip and hip replacement and still has difficulty in walking. We were taken up the stair to the 1st floor and then up a further narrow and twisting stair to our room on the second floor which would be awkward for all but the very young and agile. Should they have noticed this on our arrival and taken us to a more accessible room? A hotel in this price bracket should have.

The room felt airless which meant we slept badly. The window were leaded lights so they had no acoustic quality. We could therefore hear the quite busy road from our room during the night. To have opened the windows to get air into the room would have meant it would have been impossible to sleep with the road noise. There is no air-conditioning. The bathroom which had an awkward sloping ceiling had an inadequate ventilation which meant that my wife had to step out of the bathroom on several occasions to gasp for air when showering..

Our not cheap room and dinner booking meant we ate in their restaurant in the evening. This was Sunday so the menu was not the full offering. BE AWARE if booking for a long weekend. The food was OK but not up to the standard it should have been. My starter was tasty but we both had rump steak as the other things on the menu were unexciting. It was a mistake as the steak was of a poor quality and very gristly and fat. My wife had to leave almost half of her steak as did the gentleman sitting on the table next to us. The waitress appeared to know nothing about the wine apart from it being red or white and the wine we chose was very ordinary and not cheap.

This is overpriced due to the quaintness of the building and its good location.

Good location and romantic building but there are better options around the area at this price.

Room Tip: Make sure you have an accessible room set away from the main road. Avoid room on 2nd floor if you have mobility problems. The stair is dangerous and would not be legal or acceptable in a new hotel. Avoid eating there on a Sunday night.

If you want to be in the heart of the Peak District then The Peacock, Rowsley fits the bill. A comfortable place to stay with excellent food, if a little of the pricey side, The Peacock makes an impresion from the moment you walk through the door.
In good weather the gardens and river close by are good for gaining the fresh air without stirring far. In wet weather the towns of Buxton and Bakewell are just a few miles away and Haddon Hall is only a mile down the road. Chatsworth is also only a short drive.

I have just stayed for a night with my sister. It is the best hotel experience I have ever had. All the staff were attentive and professional but discreet. The hotel is beautiful and the decor is classy. Everything was immaculate. We enjoyed the chick flicks chosen from the enormous DVD library! A perfect break.
