“Brilliant accommodation for a special occasion and get together with friends!”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had an amazing time at The Mermaid Inn. The rooms were all great and made up in the configurations requested. There were plenty of utensils, crockery, glasses etc in the kitchen catering and enough fridge space to store food and drink for our group of 30 for the full weekend! The table tennis, pool table and bar area was a real hit with the guys who could pretend they were living in the pub for the weekend and the large dining room window looking out over the Peaks was just beautiful! A thoroughly enjoyable stay for everyone!

Liked best: The ensuite in every room and the picturesque window!
Liked least: very little to note - perhaps some of the painting needs to be redone rather than touched up (rm 12)

“Fantastic getaway for a big group”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was the perfect getaway for our group which comprised friends from all over the uk. It is a great central location , easy to get to yet wonderfully secluded set as it is surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful scenery. The inn itself is incredible, with extensive room for entertaining and dining. The table football and pool table kept the kids entertained and the bar and karaoke kept the adults entertained! A huge table seated about 40 with wonderful views over the countryside. The rooms were nicely decorated and all en suite. The kitchen was well equipped. The local supermarket was happy to deliver our food for the weekend and we were recommended the fantastic catering by 'The Cafe' at Buxton who delivered meals on both evenings - absolutely brilliant food and competitively priced. There was plenty to see and do near the Inn. We can't wait to come again, hopefully next time in the summer so that we can make use of the bbq area and picnic tables. Altogether faultless place - I wouldn't change a thing.

We could not have been more pleased with the venue. Clean, modern amenities, well equipped, beautiful and the fun of running your own pub while taking in the breath-taking view... We will definitely be back!

“A fantastic property for large groups”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We hired the Mermaid Inn for my Dad's 60th birthday celebrations. Our entire family and some close friends (26 people in total) stayed for 3 nights. From the start, the contact from Pete and Marie-Axelle was excellent. They talked through every detail with me from event insurance to sorting a Sainsburys grocery delivery.

The property itself was even better than we expected. The view from the dining room is enough to take your breath away. The space for lounging and socialising are plenty. The rooms are warm, the showers are hot and the beds are comfy.

The surrounding area is beautiful. If you're a fan of the outdoors there's plenty to explore. One thing I will say is that if you have a dog, please be responsible as there's a lot of livestock.

99/100 score. To get the perfect 100 I'll have to try and convince Pete to get Sky Sports ;)
