Me and my 2 sisters stayed in a family room on dinner, bed and breakfast basis. We spent the day walking the monsal trail. The view from this point is amazing. Helpful staff, gorgeous food that was really great value for money based on our package. Yes the rooms are a bit shabby (the bed was very comfy!) but it...

We've loved this place for years, it's our regular stop-off on the way home from walking up at Kinder Scout. We've always had lovely food and enjoyed the amazing view. After today....I've changed my mind! We sat in the (surprisingly quiet) beer garden at the Stables, and my husband went to order our drinks. I had asked for a 'fruity...

This is one of my top two places to visit. Yes, the rooms are rather old-fashioned and in need of refurbishment but the view is to die for and the welcome we get is always really special. The 4 rooms overlooking the Dale are the ones to go for. Then you can sit and watch the people come and go,...

Stable Bar! After walking on the Monsal Trail we decided to call in for refuelling. 3 ladies, 3 dogs and two children we decided to sit outdoors and take in the beautiful views. Went in to order and there was no flexibility when ordering and were told that as we were paying separate, food would not be brought out together....

Such a wonderful setting. The views are breathtaking. Our evening meal was unusual and very well cooked. The liquorice panna cotta was very tasty. The breakfast was well cooked and good produce was used. Complimentary sherry and homemade biscuits in the room were a nice touch. The staff were friendly and helpful. The photos are views from our room window.....

Visited with friends for lunch. The staff didn't seem very happy, food was ok but not brilliant, the food is cooked at the hotel and brought into the stables bar via the side door meaning your food is carried outside, not a good idea! Good for walkers good for people with dogs as they are allowed in the bar... Would...

We stayed here for one night with our dog. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had drinks and dinner in the stables bar with our dog lying next to the huge log burning stove. The food was excellent and there were several vegetarian choices. Our room was a good size and very comfortable, although a little dated. Our...

I gather the hotel is up for sale, so if you have one and a half million to spare then it could be yours. However, you will need to spend more to bring it up to scratch. A lick of paint here and there would not go amiss. Having said that, we enjoyed our stay there - the staff were...
