This hotel hides down a quiet side street just off from the busy main road through Leek and is perfect for whatever brings you to Leek.
The hotel has charm and character, and the owners were very welcoming to us. The rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean, airy and bright. On the Friday we arrived just in time for dinner, which was out of this world. The food was fantastic, and a very good size for the price. The food quality is renowned in the area, so make sure to book a table in the restaurant if you're planning on eating there.
Breakfast was the same; home-cooked full English breakfast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, or any type of cereal, muesli, toast, fruit, porridge, or yogurt to choose from. And when we went back to our room we were pleasantly surprised that the bed had been remade, fresh towels had been laid out, and the coffee and tea selection refilled.
Overall, very friendly service, large, clean rooms, excellent food, and in a house with a history, all in a great location. We will definitely be back in the future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1828 for a local mill owner the Peak Weavers Rooms & Restaurant stands in its own grounds close to Leek town centre. It was sold by the Wardle family in the 1860’s and became the convent to the Catholic Church. For nearly 120 years it remained so until in 1978 it was converted to a Guest House and restaurant. The Peak Weavers Rooms & Restaurant takes its name from its close proximity to the Peak District and from the industry that shaped the town of Leek. Fine examples of weaver’s cottages can be seen on King Street, their third storey catching optimum hours of daylight to enable Leek’s women of yesteryear to work their looms from dawn to dusk. In 1999 husband and wife team, Nick and Emma Bettany, took over the Peak Weavers Rooms & Restaurant and set about restoring the period property to its former glory. An ongoing policy of refurbishment has resulted in the bed and breakfast accommodation being graded at 4 Star by the English Tourism Council and the AA. The 40 cover restaurant, under Emma’s guidance, is a previous “Taste of Staffordshire” award winner and has subsequently been awarded an AA Rosette. In September of 2005 the Peak Weavers was judged runner up in Staffordshire Small Restaurant of the Year by a panel of RAC food inspectors. Also in 2005 Peak Weavers Rooms & Restaurant attained membership of the Peak District Cuisine initiative in recognition of its support for local producers, the first, and currently only restaurant in the Leek area to do so. Breakfast is served in the restaurant and also makes good use of local produce. For the business traveller wireless internet access is available throughout the Guest House and is included in the bed and breakfast tariff. The accommodation is completely smoke free. ... more less
