Stayed at Hardwick Hall Hotel for the second time in August 2018. The hotel is impressive from the moment you drive into its grounds. There is parking to the front and rear. The hotel is full of old charm from deep pile carpets to leather furniture.
I had booked a Premier room The bedroom had three windows overlooking Hardwick Country Park. It was appointed with a very large comfortable bed, two chairs and large desk plus chair. Upon an ornate set of draws stood the tea / coffee makings, kettle DVD player and complimentary mineral water. A free standing wardrobe contained a safe. There was an iron and board. Mounted upon the walls was a large TV and a B & O music centre. The bathroom was exceptionally large featuring a grand free standing bath, two basins and a large walk-in shower.
Both dinner and breakfast were take in the hotel and I can recommend the 'posh fish & chips' in the Rib Room. The cooked breakfast was very good too.
The hotel is located on the edge of the Hardwick Country Park which was a pleasure to stroll around. To concluded this was a relaxing stay in a very nice hotel which is in a lovely location.
Negative points: -
The rooms decor is showing its age. Marks and stains on the wallpaper. The B&O HiFi worked very well but had a cassette player! The massive desk and its chair could be replaced with a small settee to view the country park from ones room.
The Rib Room staff were young and attentive but the older breakfast serving staff were just miserable. At 8.50am I was told that there were no more croissants, poor as breakfast is served until 10am.

Attended the festival for the full weekend, brilliant set up and bands etc. We have been every year since its creation and like the past events this one was just as good.

Standard tickets on the Saturday and gold tickets on the Sunday, gold worth the money you can eat all day if you can handle it.

Will we go again - yes without question.

Had a great afternoon tea here. Fabulous service from the waiting staff. Jane, Donna and Margaret all very attentive. Going above and beyond the usual requirements. Serving generous portions, certainly value for money.
Thanks to all the staff involved behind the scenes too but especially those mentioned.

A lovely afternoon tea made even lovlier by very attentive staff, Donna, Liam, Margaret and especially Jane for whom nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is set in gorgeous grounds.

We especially loved the coffee pot.

We regularly visit the Hardwick Hotel for Sunday Lunch and have taken extended family and friends on several occasions. The style of the Dining Room and the background live piano music make for a very relaxing and pleasant ambience.
The food is plentiful and wholesome and characterises good home cooking which is great value for money and a pleasant dining experience.
The Staff Members particularly Martin and Margaret and their colleagues cannot do enough to assist and are very pleasant and polite and most professional in carrying out their tasks.
I have not found a better dining experience in the area and I really look forward to my lunches at Hardwick.

Room Tip: I visit for meals only.
