My husband and I booked this b&b at the last minute - it was definately not our first choice of place to stay but as it was the English half term weekend, they seemed to be the only place in the whole Peak District that had availability.......... maybe that should have told us something....... The room was 72 pounds for a standard room, bed and breakfast. When we arrived, we were informed that the chef was ill and therefore they would not be serving any food that evening, which was fine - these things happen. We were shown to our room - the bed and furniture were clean and new looking but the rest of the decor was very tired and the carpet needed a good vacum. No sooner had we sat down than there was a knock on the door from the staff asking that we pass them the spare bed that was in the wardrobe to be used by another guest. We went down to the bar to grab a quick drink before heading out and I was served a nice long drink in a glass with lipstick around the rim........lovely! When we returned to our room later that eveing, the smell of smoke had somewhat managed to permeate up the two floors to the bedroom which was rather unpleasant. The next morning we realised that we hadn't been informed of the breakfast arrangements so went downstairs before showering to investigate. The staff abruptly informed us that they were running behind time and that there would be a window of around 45 mins where they would be serving - probably as a result of the chef being ill, which again is understandable. The breakfast itself, and the room in which it was served were nicer however. I then asked the staff if I could borrow an Iron, to which I was informed 'We don't have one'..... What? Not even one to share between the 8 or so bedrooms....... Also, the shower ran hot, then cold, then hot, and then cold again. I wouldn't normally be so bothered by one or two of these things happening, but not all over the course of the one night stay. I have stayed in many b&bs at much lesser cost and experienced much better treatment and facilities!
