It is rare that I write reviews, and am only inclined to do so if service is excellent or appalling...The Old Hand and Diamond was superb. We used this B n B for a wedding reception at nearby Rowton Castle, we called to ask if we could check in early to change for the wedding and were given a room at 11am - the rooms (although small) were charming and spotlessly clean. We were provided complimentary minibus to the Reception and collected after midnight by a charming young man. Breakfast was good, although we had booked breakfast at 9am, a small toddler's demands to eat at 7.45am were deemed no trouble at all, with other members of our party coming down at different times up to 9.20. An excellent family atmosphere, very welcoming and a delightful location. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit agian in the future.
