Looking for a Dovedale weekend we searched for hotels and settled on Peveril for price and availability. The initial impression was good with the long winding drive and location. The foyer was bit jaded but OK and the staff were friendly. Our room was very basic - no telephone and a long walk form reception. The bar was awful -...

Ran a 'Map & Compass' Course for HF Holidays this weekend. Great facilities, very helpful staff & management. Food & room very helpful at all times. I would recommend this venue in the beautiful Peak District. Dovedale very close by which is a gem.

It is true that the hotel is dated and on the down side the room did smell a little musty but it was clean .The weather wasn't great this bank holiday and the room appeared cold however once we had climbed the wonderful "hill" at the back of the hotel we were soon warmed up and ready for dinner.

The hotel has wonderful grounds and on the first evening we were lucky enough to be able to sit outside with a bottle of wine in the sun which was lovely. The food in the restaurant was nice, but limited choice for those outside of hf holidays and at...

I stayed here for 3 nights on a HF Holiday. The location cannot be beaten close to Dovedale and the beautiful village of Ashbourne. For a walking visit in Dovedale you couldn't pick a better location.

Stayed at the hotel as part of an HF holiday learn map and compass break. On arrival there was plenty of car parking near to the main reception area which was dominated by a superb log burning stove. I was allocated room 7 which was in the newer part of the building. My room was large and spacious with a...

We have just returned from the Peverill following a birthday weekend for my Aunt. Eighteen of us stayed as a group and we had a brilliant time. The rooms were lovely and warm. The 3 course evening meal was delicious, I had the Linguine which was so tasty. The service from all staff was second to none from Steve and...
