Booked this hotel for a weekend getaway and wasn't disappointed. We stayed in the suite with four poster bed, roll-top bath and views over the edges of the peak district after receiving a complimentary upgrade. The room was beautifully furnished, comfortable, and only lacked a shower in what was otherwise perfect. The rest of the hotel is a mix of character charm and modern furnishings. The roaring fires were very welcome on a cold and rainy evening.
We ate in the hotel restaurant from a Valentines special menu. Cannot fault the quality of the food and at £16pp for a three course meal it represented great value. The soup and steak were particulary good and all ingredients were handled well. We also enjoyed a full English for breakfast, worth eating for the sausage alone. We didn't have time to sample the standard menu but given the standard of the food we ate we would be confident of similar quality and value.
What raises the standard of the Norfolk Arms above other places where we have stayed is the staff. Friendly, approachable, attentive, they were without exception a genuine pleasure to be around. Amanda who helped rearrange our booking when we had car trouble, Sam who kept the Black Sheep flowing and dealt with our dietary needs, Amy who makes the best Moscow Mule cocktail without having made one before, Matthew who looked after us on arrival and until we left, Bill for the banter, Steve for the £5 voucher off our next stay, and Becky for the brecky and her (mostly) excellent taste in music. A great big thank you to all of you and those who we didn't meet behind the scenes.
Will definitely be going back, and often.
