Great base for four friends to hit the hills. Very welcoming, comfy apartment (note no shower) delicious cider and wines, delicious breakfasts and supper served promptly and they happily accommodated our dog and muddy boots, as well as gluten free and vegetarian eaters. We'll be back!

It is still a traditional Inn which has warmth and a cosy homely atmosphere. Positives: Full delicious English... More

The staff are fantastic, the rooms are warm, clean and contain everything you need. The food is superb, served quickly with a smile, piping hot generous portions and very reasonably priced. Michael and Chris go out of their way to make you feel at home and you never feel rushed or as if you should buy another drink/leave. I can't... More

We stayed for one night and were made to feel very welcome by Chris, the food and ale were excellent, and the room was very comfortable. A great place to explore the Peak District from. Will stay again next time we are in the area.

What a nice surprise in the Peak District! The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the service was impeccable. Mike in particular was really helpful and made us feel at home. The inn is the perfect place to begin beautiful hiking trails, and it's just remote enough to feel like a real holiday from the hustle and bustle of the... More

This famous historic tavern has wonderful staff and a superb menu with lots of vegetarian options. Also, ordering at the bar means no waiting for a waiter and no waiting for a bill. Look out for the little bits of history dotted about the place. The premises used to be called The Snake Inn as it was named after the... More

The staff are excellent at this Inn. Very friendly and very helpful. They let us check in when we arrived at noon, five hours earlier than planned, which was very helpful. We stayed for one night in a family apartment and paid £99 which included breakfast. There were four of us. There were two bedrooms, a lounge and bathroom. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Snake Pass Inn is a famous landmark pub and watering hole near beautiful Ladybower in the Peak District in the spectacular High Peak area of Derbyshire and The Peak District National Park. With 12 letting bedrooms including a separate apartment block, the Inn offers affordable b&b accommodation in a unique setting amongst some of the finest scenery in the whole of England. Steep-sided, rolling hills, meandering streams, the wild moors of Bleaklow on the Pennine Way and the well known Ladybower, Howden and Derwent reservoirs are all close neighbours of the Snake Pass Inn - so a few days in this part of the world are sure to re-charge the batteries. And with fantastic walking and great scenery straight from the doorstep, you'll need your walking boots, cameras and sketch pads too...! ... more   less
