Innkeeper's Lodge Castleton, Peak District
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Castleton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2010

Derbyshire Peak District is the original National Park.
The Castle is one of the minority of Inns still owned by Mitchells and Butlers brands, which offer and provide good rooms and a fully included, excellent buffet breakfast in the price.
Lunch was under £10 for a full 3 courses(!), hearty and, despite a reheating of the soup, enjoyable. All drink extra.

This Inn has friendly, young service staff and meals are good value in the "grill catering" bracket. Breakfast was an ample buffet with toast, coffee, breads, fruit, cereals and so on. Sets anyone up with this meal as a start to the day.

The room was far better than expected, comfortable, good towels, TV has limited digital Freeview reception in the Peak, a Samsung flatscreen LCD nonetheless.
Shower gel dispenser in the shower.
This is a great value Hotel, called "Vintage Inn" of M&B various brands.
If you can, enjoy this pub/hotel at a true value price.

This small town attracts thousands of those "rambling types" annually, but also has Peveril Castle, the famous caverns, Blue John crystal shops, and speciality shops for the non lycra-clad normals.
We suggest you combine a visit to Castleton with a Buxton visit.

I stayed at the Castle Inn with my 2 children for two nights in different rooms and having read the reviews on here would have to dispute the decor being tired or dirty, it was in fact modern, tasteful and clean.

Check in was slow and the staffing level seemed to be under optimum but the staff I met were without exception friendly and helpful. We stayed in rooms, 7, 8 and 9, all in the stables annexe and all very pleasant, clean and excellent value.

Breakfast was a good quality continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, pastires, great selection of cereals and toast with jams/marmalades. i do agree however that a full English would do this establishment justice.

We ate in the pub only once for lunch and it was a lovely, hearty warming lunch. Ales were in good supply and well priced.

All in all it was the perfect base for a break with my children, with good food, friendly staff, and good ales at a reasonable price. I cannot speak for the rooms in the main building but certainly the annexe rooms were lovely. Traditional Derbyshire Inn at good prices.

The Hotel had been recomended on arrival nice looking building and booked in fine the room as spacious but a little tried in places mainly wall paper pealing, paint work marked and the Bed matress uncomfortable. Also the room was in the annex where the main door is a fire door which shut under a spring not a problem unless you stay when some other inconsiderate guest stay allowing the fire door to slam making the build shudder its core.

The staff were friendly enough but the way the place is run and staff managed there appeared to be little care in general service. First night in the Resturant told no Fish dishes or Vegetarian available. Then most deserts not on when ordering the pofita rolls told no chocolate sauce. When went to purchase one of the guest bitters told that one was not on but latter told this because the staff could'nt be bothered to put a new barrell on. This was all on a Friday before a long weekend !!!!!

On the Saturday waited 1 1/2 hours to be served a meal. Ordered the Steak meduim rare when it was brought out asked if it was cooked right as the chef was'nt sure!!!! Wife had Fish which was cooked dry allround were other customers complaining food cold bar was so busy with few staff that you could wait forever

Go over the road to the Bull same type of menu better cooked food and great service

Overall a great dissapointment

After spotting the board outside advertising four open fires and it being a cold evening we were keen to give The Castle a try. The fires were not lit but we were assured that when the manager had finished what he was doing that they would all be lit- they never were! The cental heating was off and the place stayed cold. We both ordered the Sunday roast- what a mistake! The food had obviosly hanging aroud all day, the vegetables were of different temperatures- mostly cold but with some reasonable gravy to warm them up. The beef was little more than pieces of gristle and almost impossible to cut never mind chew.
We pointed out our dissatisfaction and were given free puddings. Our regret is that we didn't leave the food,pay the drinks bill and eat elsewhere.

The hotel was good you had a great selection of food on the menu and for breakfast, they were always coming to replace the empty baskets with new stuff. A lovely country pub with great friendly staff and service. They also let you try a bitter if you didi not know if you wanted it or if you had never had it before.

We stayed at The Castle one snowy evening on 2nd January. Following a hazardous road journey from Manchester it was a relief to be welcomed by a roaring log fire and a warming glass of mulled wine. Our room was 'Arundel' a double with ensuite bathroom very warm and cosy with flat screen TV and full tea/coffee making facilities. There was no need to reserve a table and only two of the three dining rooms were occupied, no doubt because of the inclement weather. A log fire in an open hearth warmed each room and tables were candle lit. We chose a pork loin dish with shallots, stuffing and sweet potato. It was delicious followed by a stomach filling apple and blackberry crumble with icecream and custard. The meal including 2 x 250 ml glasses of Shiraz and predinner drinks came to £42.30 which I thought was reasonable. The service was very friendly. Meanwhile the snow continued to fall and we wondered if we would get out in the morning.
An excellent night's stay and we will come again .

Managed to get in on new years eve after a late cancellation. The staff were very helpful and extremley friendly.
Despite the place being packed, being new years eve, they took the time and trouble to add an extra table and serve us a first class meal. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was first class.
Big thank you to Neil and his staff
