“"Lovely"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

We spent one night at the Peels Arms and loved it. We were over the moon with our room, which was of a very high standard.When we arrived both Phil and Helen made us very welcome and showed us around their lovely Pub. All the food on offer is all freshly cooked to a high standard.
The breakfast was really nice and nothing was any trouble if requested.
There are so many beautiful walks near by,with breathtaking views on offer within yards of the pub.
We loved it from start to finish and we recommend this establishment without hesitation to you all ,
Our advise is go for it and see for yourself...........

Thanks Phil and Helen

Have stayed at this cosy hideaway on more than one occasion, while attending family gatherings in the area. Found it most welcoming and comfortable with good food and great service. would definitley recommend a stay here...

Travelled down to the Peak District with my wife and two friends stopping in the Peels for 3 nights whilst visiting the local Brass Band contest in Saddleworth. We arrived just before 3pm and introduced ourselves at the bar. After a plate of sandwiches and drinks, including a well kept real ale, we went up to the rooms. We had booked the ensuite.. small room but perfectly adequate; my pals Dougie and Lesley had the room next door.. same size as our own with a shower... their toilet, and the bathroom, was down the corridor. Rooms very clean and perfectly fine... only wee note.. beds a little hard... Dougie said same... slept well enough though. Had a walk round the hills in the afternoon.. beautiful.. and returned for a delicious evening meal before a pint or two and bed. Breakfast early the next morning was excellent. During all the meals we were well attended by the landlady Helen and Phil, who were both very warm and friendly, as were the rest of the staff. The 'locals' were very inclusive and we had a good chat on our last night which turned out to be Helen's birthday.
On leaving I mentioned that I would leave a review. Helen was very grateful and mentioned that she always did her best to maintain a high standard and that the staff had been upset at previous comments made. I can't make a judgement on what has gone before... I can only say that we all agreed that we would return, if in the area, to a well run, and a very friendly little pub..... Thanks again Geoff, Mags, Dougie & Lesley.

We have only put in a stay date in order to get this review uploaded, we have not stayed in this establishment .Our debit cards were not accepted by their outdated systems and it took them two whole days to let us know. We agreed to send a cheque but later but later that day after the initial call letting us know our cards hadn't been accepted we received another call telling us they had booked the room with someone else who as they said 'had already paid'. I find this to be totaly slapdash and unprofessional and think that we probably had a lucky escape. After such a waste of time we managed to book elsewhere and needless to say our cards were accepted without any problem. After this experience We certainly wouldn't patronise this establishment in any way.

Don't make a booking with them - they'll let you down.
I telephoned at 9 pm on Monday evening to book a cream tea fora group of 10 people the following day. The booking was accepted. When I arrived the following day with a group of 10 people expecting a cream tea the place wasn't even bloody open.
The person that answered the door to me, after I,d stood there knocking, was totally disinterested and useless.
Will never go there again

jake2011, Owner at The Peels Arms, responded to this review, 11 June 2011
We did try to explain to this gentleman that there had been a break down in communication, and did leave 2 messages for him to confirm his booking.We have always closed midweek between 3 and 5 pm. When we had no return call we assumed they were not coming. We did offer him sandwiches and cakes but he insisted it was cream teas or nothing. We pride ourselves on excellent service and won best pub of the year 2010 , it is unlikely that the hundreds of customers who voted for us would agree with this review.We did offer to accomadate the party but only recieved an angry response. We do appologise for any inconvienience caused by this mix up but assure you this has never happened before.

Stayed in a twin room with a friend while cycling the Transpennine Trail. The owner was very helpful in sorting us out with some storage space for the bikes and advising us on the best way to get back on the Trail the next morning.

The room itself was somewhat small, although that was not unexpected given the nature and age of the building. The twin room had no toilet or shower facilities - just a washbasin. Shared bathroom facilities are down the corridor. The double rooms both have showers and the larger double also has en-suite facilities. As there are only two rooms that would need to make use of the shared bathroom I can't imagine it would ever get too busy! Our twin room cost just £50 B&B.

On the night we stayed we were the only guests and we were made welcome to use the shower in the double room over the corridor from us rather than having to use the bathroom further down the hall.

The bar downstairs is very nice - spacious, cosy and plenty of proper real ale. There is also a dining room for more formal eating but we ate in the bar. The food was excellent - rump steak cooked just as ordered with plenty of fat chips and a delicious whisky and stilton sauce from the specials board.

Breakfast in the morning was excellent, a nice large full English with all the trimmings. Plenty of cereals, toast, fruit were also available.

Padfield itself is an interesting place, a former mill town sitting on a hill on the north-west boundary of the Peak District, near Glossop. The scenery nearby is stunning, in particular nearby Longdendale, home to a series of reservoirs built in the 19th century. The Transpennine Trail follows the route of an old railway up the valley, which is an interesting, easy route from which you can strike out on more challenging rides and walks on higher ground.
