The restaurant was chilly and needed more heating. A log fire was being installed which would help I'm sure. The staff were pleasant and helpful, clean and tidy. The menu is pretty basic. On the evening we went there were no prawns, no duck or lamb roast. It has a nice view of the pretty village but needs to warm... More

the food was lovely, nothing appeared too much trouble, they managed to cater for my vegetarian and dairy allergy diet and produce wonderful food, in a lovely well decorated dining area

Smell of fried food in the bar area was enough to put me off and tell me not to stay there! Turned out to be too expensive for what it is. Rooms need updating and the food isn't good, also the service was very poor. I'd not recommend staying - go to the Manifold Inn or Jug & Glass!

We ate in the restaurant whilst staying at the hotel. The food was of a good quality and well cooked. The waitresses are lovely, working hard with a smile. The bar has a good selection og local beer and the wine menu very reasonable.

Now this might have lost a star because we'd just been in the Devonshire Arms (and stayed for 4 pints), but the only people in here were the staff which left the atmosphere distinctly lacking. The lady who served us was very friendly and the beer was decent but as the 7 of us had been walking we almost felt... More

Stayed in Hartington over the weekend and dined here on the Sunday evening. Pleasant surroundings, not very busy but food was excellent.

First the positives. The hotel is in a great location with good food and great communal areas. Breakfast was lovely and there was plenty for all. The negatives for us didn't spoil the weekend but just a little care and attention could make things so much better. Our room was very compact and had a very strange odour. It wasn't... More

Although booked in advance and very quiet I had a very poor fish and chips. About 90% batter and a little bit of distinctly old fish in the middle. poor value for money. looking at other reviews this may seem harsh but it's true.

Seven of us plus my little dog had a lengthy walk this morning. Before we set off from Hartington centre we nipped in to the Charles Cotton & requested a table for 7. On arriving at the Hotel at lunchtime we were made very welcome and they were happy for me to take my little dog into the dining area... More
