“Lovely time at the Swiss House”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We had lovely stay at the Swiss House,the staff was very friendly and attentive and simply made our stay very relaxing.We loved their home made granola for breakfast and generally the breakfast was yummy.The room was clean,well heated with powerful shower which was excellent.We would prefer firmer mattress but apart of that it was all very good.

Thank you for your comments. It is difficult to please everyone re mattresses so we have to go for a 'medium' firmness I'm afraid. I hope it didn't affect your nights sleep too much.

This was the first time I've ever stayed overnight in Castleton, and I'm so glad that this excellent B&B made the journey worthwhile.

Two rooms were booked, as we were travelling with friends, and our welcome could not have been more perfect, with tea and warm flapjacks made for us on our arrival!

The rooms were perfectly sized, with great views over towards the peak district. The shower in the bathroom was surprisingly good.

Breakfast was perfect, cooked to order, and was just what we needed to ensure our stay ended up on a high note.

This was our second stay at Swiss House and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. The B&B is comfortable with modern decoration and spotless. We stayed in room 9 and the views were fantastic - from one side you can see the castle and the other, the rolling hills. The breakfast is also very good. We will definitely go back. The location is a superb base for Mam Tor and Winnats Pass. The views in Castleton and on the hill tops are fantastic. Castleton has everything you need, numerous pubs with great beer and food, tea rooms, gift shops, caverns, tourist information centre and home made fudge. A real treat for all of the family.

A group of us stayed here for 2 nights while walking. The large rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and very warm. The bathroom had a lovely shower and a bath, just what I needed after a long, wet and difficult walk up Mam Tor. The full english breakfast and the well publicised home made grenola are the best ever, set us all up for the day. Martha and Mary were very welcoming, we did not see any flapjack though which I was looking forward to after reading the reviews. The Swiss is very well situated for walks, pubs and restaurants where they are all welcoming and friendly. We are already talking about going back and it is definetly one of the nicest B&b's we have stayed in and will not hestitate recommending it to friends. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 really lovely and big with bath, keep bathroom door shut at night as fan rattles with the win...

Thank you for your comments.
I take note about the fan in your bathroom - often we only know about these things if guests tell us, so thanks for pointing it out,
Re the flapjack - we offer this, and a cup of tea, on check-in. If guests are rushing off to walk or have lunch then they don't get the flapjack I'm afraid. We also don't offer tea and flapjack after 6pm as we think people will be getting ready to go out for their evening meal.
Anyway - next time you come please make a note to ask for the flapjack!! :)

This was our second visit as we loved it so much the first time. We booked the same room again (9) for the character and fabulous views. The room was clean and comfortable again (there was even a decaff option provided with the other drinks in the room - hooray). Excellent en suite shower with plenty of hot water at all times.
We were welcomed with a cup of tea and delicious home made flapjack as we chatted about decent places to eat, visit and walk in the area.
The only negative is that the walls between rooms are very thin (we didn't notice this on our first visit, perhaps there was nobody in the room next door) but it was no worse than some other places we've stayed.
Breakfast was very tasty with lots of choice including some home made goodies.
We'll definitely be back.

Sorry about the noise from room 8! When we decorate room 9 next time we'll look into getting some kind of sound-proofing put on that party wall. :)

This was our first visit to Castleton and so was unsure where to stay, however after booking Swiss House i could not have made a better choice, Martha and Mary (Sisters) make you feel welcome and so at home, we arrived mid afternoon and after being shown to our room (room 9) we were invited to the lounge for a welcomed cup of tea however got an extra bonus of some home made flap jack (very nice). Our room was on the top floor but dont let the sloping ceiling put you off as the views are fantastic and there is still plenty room around the bed etc..We stayed 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer, the breakfast was lovely and certainly sets you up for the day. Martha and Mary will do anything for you and try and answer any questions as well as advise where best to eat in the evening etc... ( would recomend the Bull) however we ate in The Nags Head and The George and never had a bad meal but the Bull just topped the others, the Rose Cottage is also worth a day time visit too. Casteton is a lovely place with plenty of walks all around as well as the various caverns to explore. Thanks again Martha and Mary, will be back to see you soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 9 which has lovely views dont be put off by the sloping ceiling, nice bed and love...
