We stayed for one night whilst visiting Ashbourne and were extremely impressed by the facilities, food and staff. Would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to visitors to Derbyshire as a great location to the Peak District and Alton Towers.

Really sorry you didn't enjoy your stay, we are dog friendly but only allow dogs in dog friendly bedrooms, and they are not allowed in the resturant, but we do allow them in the bar.

The rooms are in purpose built units behind the hotel and you can park your car right outside the door. The room was very clean and pleasantly decorated with tea / coffee making facilities, hairdryer and toiletries. We found it very quiet. Also behind the hotel is a large beer garden area with lots of things for children to play...

Enjoyable stay with our three dogs , in separate accomodation to the Inn which was ideal as dogs didn't need to bark at everyone going past. Parking available immediately adjacent to your room. Rooms were ideal with separate entrance area to put wet dogs after a day walking in the Peaks. The room did get a bit chilly though even...

The good bits first. As a smoker, I loved the room. Direct access to the outside covered carport, and, because I take a 'travelling ashtray', I did not leave dogends on the ground, like previous guests. The room itself was well equipped, a bit tired in places, but spotless and comfortable. Well done to the cleaning team. Brilliant bed! The...

All in all enjoyed my stay here. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and welcoming (some of the kitchen/waiting staff not quite so).
