We had a very enjoyable family holiday at the hotel, last week. The breakfasts are really good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The family enjoyed walking and climbing the hills. We were very fortunate with the weather which was very good. We also ate in the bar and they accommodated us very well.

Room tip: Some parts of the hotel have lovely views and there are also dog friendly rooms out in the courtyard.

Just returned home today, after a 2 night stay- as the snow started to fall!
Friendly staff, clean room and great food. One of the best walks in England starts at the door, the River Dove walk is just superb. Go early after a full English breakfast and see the wildlife. Then relax in the bar with a pint or two....I would go back again tomorrow if I could, snow or not.

What a lovely spot, so tranquil and off the beaten track. Welcoming staff who couldn't do enough for you. Lovely room looking out over the valley. The only disappointment was the bathroom, which was basic and lacking those little extras e.g.shower cap. There was a safe which didn't work!! The meal in the restaurant was superb, but only one choice on the main course for vegetarians? Breakfast was really very good, everything you could possibly want. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

An excellent night with good food and friendly accommodating staff. They even made a private lounge available for a raucous run through some old photographs. The scenery is lively with some good walks around Dovedale and Islam.
