Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for two nights. A decent hotel. Clean spacious room, friendly courteous staff, good food. Drinks a bit pricey but you expect this in a hotel. The negatives were relatively minor but important since they prevent this from being described as a very good hotel. Service in all departments a bit slow (understaffed?). Pots/glasses slow to be cleared from bar/lounge...

We arrived quite late in the day, around 6pm. No issues on arrival, very friendly receptionist who helped us arrange a taxi (so we could both drink). Ample parking on site. There was a wedding evening do in full flow but even being directly above we couldn't hear it. It's not a very modern hotel but it's not dated. It's...

Can only rate as "average". Building looks very 'tired' and in need of serious refurbishment. Dinner only served from 7.0 pm, and though we were first in, we had to wait almost 1 hour for our meal to arrive - even though later arrivals were getting their starters served. Breakfast had to be ordered the night before, with the mandate...

To be blunt about it, I would have been very disappointed if I had paid full price for the stay at Makeney. As a discount voucher offer, it was fine. The place itself is in a beautiful setting, with excellent access to the dales. It is walking distance from Belper centre too. With regards to the hotel, it is a...

Was lovely about twenty years ago but nothing has been done to this place since. Filthy, tired, staff who don't care, terrible water pressure. Stayed on a Thursday night when a wedding disco was in progress and the LOUD music did not stop until midnight. We have made this promise before (because there isn't a good hotel in Belper) but...

The hotel is situated just a few miles from Belper allowing trips through the Derwent Valley and on the fringes of the Derbyshire Dales for day trips out. We decided on the day trips. We did however avail ourselves of the restaurant services of the hotel. We dined in the conservatory and dined from the menu which allows you to...

A lovely place to stay. Spent the night there as a treat for my wife's birthday. The staff was gracious, courteous and very helpful. The location is great. It is peaceful and quite. A few other folks were gearing up for country walks after breakfast. Denby pottery really close and also Derby.

I've stayed in the Makeney hall hotel quite a few times. The rooms are fairly standard wth comfortable beds and all the features you'd expect. It's an old building and the water pressure is a challenge with the showers, plus on 2 separate stays no hot water was available (and the hotel made no gestures of goodwill on either occasion)....
