“Great location”
Reviewed 24 October 2008

We stayed the The Casle for 3 nights, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. The parking was a problem - we had to park in the road away from the Pub. The staff said maybe it would quieten down later and we could move - but it did not.

We (my husband and I) found the pub welcoming and staff friendly, but very busy and noisy. Our room in the annexe was ok - bathroom needed a makeover! We could not get all the channels on the tv, that were listed.

Food was good, but pricey for what it was.

Breakfasts were a disappointment - quite poor really. Toaster did not work properly.

Overall - a pleasant stay because the area is so nice.

Stayed October 2008

We stayed here for two nights, hoping for a nice weekend away.
As soon as we arrived, we had our first problem - parking!!! There is a car park, but when we arrived at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon, there were no spaces. We were told by the staff we would have to park elsewhere (there is a pay and display car park further down the village). Quick check-in, then directed to our room.
Our room was in the main building, above the pub. The first thing I noticed when I went up the stairs was this awful smell, it was like an old fusty smell, not nice.
Our room was horrible. I can appreciate that the building is old and retains some character, but out room was cold, old, very tired, and not that clean. I couldn't believe what I saw. The windows were rotten, the window catch was just sat broken on the window sill, the duvet cover was too small for the duvet, the bathroom was dirty and mouldy, please see the pics of all of this!!!
We didn't sleep well at all. The bed was so uncomfortable and uneven. The headboard was screwed to the wall and the bed was on wheels, which was fun! If you rolled over the bed moved away from the wall.
Breakfast - again, not good. It was a basic breakfast. Cereal, toast, tea/coffee etc. On both mornings I had to ask for a clean bowl for the cereal, the bread was still frozen and left in a basket for you to pop in the toaster, the coffee was cold, the breakfast room itself (part of the pub I think) was not that clean, just a bit grubby.
We did try to find somewhere else for the 2nd night but everywhere was fully booked. On the plus side, the TV in the room had sky sports, and on a morning there was always a newspaper to read with your breakfast. But do we really go away for a break in the country to watch sky sports and read the paper? We had a couple fo decent meals at the Peaks Inn and the Cheshire Cheese Inn, and a great lunch at the 3 Roofs Cafe, all of which are in Castleton. Blue John Cavern is worth a visit too. We like Castleton and will visit again, but we will probably stay at The Peaks Inn or the Swiss House, definately not The Castle. Beware!!!

Stayed here many times over the years, always consistent and good value. Part of the Inkeeper's Lodge/Vintage Inns chain but loads of character. Have stayed in both the main hotel and the annex/old stables - on balance prefer the main building (except for the roadside rooms, which are quite noisy) but the annex rooms are very good too. Most of the rooms are large for the price, beds are comfy, and five or so have jacuzzi baths! Decor is getting just a bit tatty (e.g. on latest stay the shower grouting was looking grotty and the loo seat came off!) but doesn't really detract.

Staff are generally friendly and helpful, and the pub serves OK food in a lovely homely and warm atmosphere (always log fires in the winter). If you want something a bit better to eat, we found the Bull's Head just opposite to be serving great food on this trip. Only real problem with the Castle is the lack of a cooked breakfast (they only do a limited continental offering), but won't be a problem for many people.

All in all, recommended for a comfortable and reliable stay in a lovely Peak District village.

We have stayed at the Castle Hotel twice now and we will definitely be going back - many more times!
It has lovely rooms which all appear to be different. They are all clean, with nice clean bed linen and towels. The only drawback can be some noise from the pub downstairs if you stay in the main hotel. There is a seperate annex which other reviews say is quieter but we prefer to stay in the original building which is full of history and ambience - and they say is haunted but we are yet to encounter any ghostly spirits!
The breakfast is great - considering it is a continental style there seems to be plenty of choice.
The pub itself has lovely open fires which in winter are extremely welcoming.
The staff are all really freindly, especially the management team who seem to take a pride in their job.
All in all - lovely hotel in a lovely part of England.

Fantastic room and breakfast only continental, and mostly the staff are very good.

Only problem is the sheep bleeting at 6 in the morning and the traffic if you stay in a room overlooking the road. Other than that itis very family friendly and the food is excellent. Big portions but a little on the expensive side. But this is on par with rest of the food outlets. A good base to go exploring from. Car parking is good and the rooms are nice and big, with old fashioned beams. Have stayed on several occasions and will again.

It's a chain hotel (Vintage Inn) but has a lot of character. Ancient beams, winding staircases. A little more expensive than some of this chain, with, unusually, prices higher at the weekend. Good pub downstairs, standard but perfectly adequate menu at fair prices. Friendly service. Parking limited though. The location is quite beautiful with lots of local attractions. Rooms on main road (in main building) suffer from road noise - ask for one in the courtyard. Pretty good, no need to pay more.

If you're looking for a hotel in the Peak District, Innkeeper's Lodge in Castleton occupies a magical spot in a beautiful corner of Derbyshire.Nestled amongst the hills of Hope Valley, and surrounded by stark limestone crags, wild moors, sheer rock edges and intriguing caves, it's clear to see why Castleton is known as the honey-pot of the Peak District.A coaching inn since the 1800s, The Castle is tucked underneath haunted Peveril Castle, from which it takes its name. Country pubs don't come much cosier.

There's plenty more to see and do nearby, with some of the country's best footpaths winding through the stunning scenery of the Peak District National Park. ... more   less
