4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Good location, easy parking. Nice large lounge/restaurant, not crowded (in these uncertain times!). Very pleasant helpful and chatty staff. Great stay.
Stayed 4 nights in Oct 2020

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Room comfort
Overall the stay did the job, however when compared to the other accommodation we stayed this weekend (Innkeepers Lodge Hathersage and Curbar Hillside B&B) at the same money this stay was well below par. The bathrooms were dated and cramped, the food was similar or worse than Weatherspoons. It did the job but we won’t be returning to a Marston’s.

Dont be fooled by reviews or * ratings.
I dont often leave reviews unless I am very very disappointed, but as I found out with this visit somtimes reviews are very mixed so not really reliable , also 4 star rating debaitable. As a regular user of hotels via my employment I would like to think I could pick a safe one when visiting with my partner, but on this occasion I was let down by the following. 1.Upon arrival Left waiting at reception for no apparent reason ? 2. The two girls on reception where polite and tried to be as helpful as they could, when one of them asked there purple haired manager for advise I was not impressed , as she did'nt realy react and didnt seem to careless. ( very poor management & undertrained staff ) 3. Very bland bedroom, although fairly clean, the room was situated next to an outdoor extraction system that rattled away all night ( so restless sleep ) 4. No one available at checkout 10am , which was strange as there seamed to be plenty staff . 5. This review is not a fault of the staff who seem to try there best or of the cook who delivered the meals, I can only put it down to poor management . I hope this review helps others like it might of helped me.
