Breakfast is always good. Very friendly staff and always helpful.
Cellular service not available most of the time. Bad reception in the location
The staff are so accommodating and hospitable. It was a wonderful stay and I would recommend staying there
Good location near Calke Abbey. Good off road parking. Reasonable sized and appointed bedroom and bathroom and standard of decor. Comfortable bed, free WiFi, friendly staff.
We were warned on arrival that the electric Shower was tricky to operate. It's not just tricky it was faulty. Half used toiletries were left in the shower, which was off-putting, although the general standard of cleanliness seemed ok. There was a light bulb out over the bed. The TV was tiny and very hard to view. Disappointed with aspects of the evening meal although we were offered drinks in compensation whilst the problem was rectified. Would be a great place to stay with a more care and attention to detail.
The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Staff extremely friendly, the food good. Great to be able to park the car, have a drink, a meal and relax without having to worry about driving. Breakfast was very good.
Toilet seat wobbled!
Dont know where to start tbh!
