I went here with my bride to be for a valentine's weekend away, no problem with the booking £70 bed and breakfast. I recieved an e-mail from the manager with the menu attached asking if we would like to reserve a table for the evening, which was a nice touch, the menu looked well but didn't look worth the £32 per person which they were asking.
We turned up on the day to a lovely early victorian mansion house set just outside Glossop near the golf course and in beautiful scenic area. We recieved a warm greeting from the manager who offered us tea and biscuits in the drawing room and took us to our room which was 'Wind in the Willows' themed, we were staying the 'Ratty' room, again a nice touch. Don't let the room name fool you, there was not a rat in sight, the bed was comfortable, everywhere was clean, tea/coffee, toiletries, all the extras that you would expect and a good nights sleep was had by all. We ventured down for breakfast in the morning, all of which is cooked to order and was very pleasant; few minor gripes, the breakfast crockery looked like something out of 'keeping up appearances' and was so small that the weetabix wouldn't lay flat in the bowl and I got my finger stuck in the tea cup, however, it was inkeeping with the size of the breakfast, a single rasher of bacon, a junior sausage, one cherry tomato, a few mushrooms, a bit of black pudding and a distinct lack of beans, I don't know whether the beans will be forwarded to me in the post or what?!; tasty but tiny, you'll be eating again within the hour!
Overall, a lovely place, lovely setting and some nice touches (especially if you want a weekend pretending you're an extra from Downton Abbey) but be aware that this is a victorian building and so the decor and furnishings are all in keeping with the period, the rooms have antique furniture and beds and the atmosphere can be a little stagnant.
