“Pleasant Place for the Peak District”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in the Coach House that is set apart from the main house. It was a ground floor room with a patio door and a small patio, overlooking beautiful countryside and the line of a preserved railway. The room was on the small side and we had to keep moving the heavy furniture to make the best use of the space available. The room was not cleaned thoroughly each day as there was a constant layer of dust on the television stand and the chest of drawers. It is a great location for visits to Haddon Hall, Chatsworth, Matlock, Crich Tramway Museum and the preserved railway at Rowsley. Although it is next to the very busy A6 we were not disturbed by traffic noise. The staff were pleasant, although a little distant. Breakfasts were good and we found it very convenient to have an evening meal each day with good food at reasonable prices.

Booked this guesthouse for a quiet weekend away. Rest quality can only be described as shocking. Significant noise past 0230. The room was pleasant enough but basic. It would have been nice if the previous guests underwear had been removed in advance.

Food quality was very average with breakfast served by an extremely grumpy member of staff.

Checked out a day early. Even though we paid by debit card we were still charged the additional 3% for creditcard transactions. I questioned this but it seems maths was not a strong subject.

Overall the owners seem like a nice couple out of their depth. Very average 3* B&B. Would not come again.

CANNOT RECCOMEND.

We are sorry you had a disturbed nights sleep on one of your nights with us caused by some high spirited guests enjoying their weekend, this is not the norm and we did apologise to you personally on the following morning and gladly do so again on this worldwide web page. However, we have to dispute very strongly some of the quite frankly rude and personally insulting comments within your review. Firstly you were highly delighted with your luxury room upon arrival and admired the four poster beds, views to die for and the featured roll top bath, hardly 3 star basic room as suggested in your review. If you could enlighten me as to which 3 star establishments have features such as these, I will stand corrected. You next state that we are hopeless at maths, how on earth do you think we manage to run a business, fill in tax returns, annual figures and V.A.T. Your bill was worked out perfectly correctly and when you queried it with Geoff he explained the only addition was for your meal and wine which you enjoyed the previous evening. You were not charged 3% for using a credit card and he took great pains to explain this to you when queried. Your final comment regarding our ability to run a business is the final insult and is far too personal a comment to make on Tripadvisor.
I feel on reflection you didn't have a good nights sleep on your second evening and in view of the weather the following morning, heavy rain and thunderstorms have used this as an excuse to leave early without paying for the additional night you booked, leaving us with a spare room on a Saturday night and also having enjoyed the additional discount offered for a three night stay, still as you say, we are rubbish at maths!
We do feel that when people use Tripadvisor they should try to leave a balanced review, this one is wholly negative and is not a true reflection of how we perceived you felt prior to your disturbed sleep.

We stayed 2 nights on a groupon deal, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location, with lots of walking opportunities and pretty villages to visit. We chose it as we were visiting Chatsworth, which is a short drive away and so it was very convenient for this. The house is on a main-ish road, but even though our room was at the front of the house we slept well. The views out the back from the breakfast room are wonderful. Our room was clean and well appointed with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was great, although I personally would have liked to have seen a continental option e.g. croissants on the menu. Overall, I would definitely recommend Holmefield.

Having been let down by another B&B establishment on our wedding anniversary, the Holmefield Guest House in Darley Dale was a perfect place to stay for our special occasion. We were greeted with friendliness by Kate and shown to a lovely room No. 3 overlooking beautiful countryside. The guest house is tastefully furnished and has a lot of character with great views. There is a comfortable sitting room with scenic views and the breakfast was excellent. The establishment is close to Matlock, Steam Railway and beautiful walks along the river Derwent. We will definitely be recommending this Guest House to others and will return ourselves sometime in the future.

Room Tip: Room 3 was excellent

After being badly let down at a nearby hotel 5 years ago Geoff and Kate managed to squeeze us in and saved our holiday. What a lucky find , it is excellent in every way and now Geoff and Kate are classed as friends and we feel part of rhe family . We have been visiting every year since and have already booked for next year . Nothing is too much trouble and all needs are catered for. Everything is immaculate. The hotel did us a favour , we found a much better place and good friends. Please keep going.

My partner and I were booked into another 3 star hotel in the Peak District area over the weekend of the 28th Feb/1st March. However, the Hollin Hall Hotel fell far below the standards advertised and a quick phone call to Kate and Geoff at Holmefield Guest House soon resolved the issue. Luckily Geoff managed to squeeze us in at very short notice. A short while later we arrived at Holmefield Guest House where we found a very warm welcome, and a clean, tidy, warm and luxurious room awaiting. The breakfast selection is first class, the surroundings beautiful and the owners and staff very friendly and accommodating. Holmefield Guest House is sure to please. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are first class!

This was our 4th visit to Holmefield, and again we were not disappointed. Kate and Geoff offer a warm welcome, great service, high quality comfortable clean rooms, and freshly cooked food.
We stayed this time in the Haddon room, which has great views, as does the homely lounge, with its log fire.
We will definately be visiting Holmefield again.
