We stayed at the Dog and Partridge with our dog for one night. Firstly the good points:- 1. Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful particularly the Romanian bar man, young male waiter and maintenance man. 2. Chalet accommodation was clean and tidy. 3. Evening meal very appetising, tasty and plenty of it. 4. Good location to Dovedale...

You did chat to the receptionist before leaving you questioned your bill, you couldn't believe how much you had spent on drinks and extras, she went through your bill item by item. All our prices are on our menus and drinks prices are displayed in the bar. You never mentioned heating or anything else but agreed your bill was correct....

We went to this hotel a couple of years ago and enjoyed it enough to make a return visit. The accommodation has deteriorated, the room had mould on the walls in places and was generally tatty. Last time we went we ate in the hotel on both nights this time we sent the food back and complained. We ate out...

I find it quite strange that you didn't complain, durin your stay, and if your room was dirty why stay a second night As we have no record of food being sent back or a dirty room. We have looked at the pics carefully and they are blown up as the mark on the skirting is about a inch square...

We were bought this for a birthday present, we have been to Derbyshire before and enjoyed it. I feel there was nothing horrible about the place or nothing brilliant either. Our room which is an annex off the main building was very dated and in need of decoration, almost in a time warp! We had bunk beds in our room...

The Dog and Partridge is a 14th century building with later additions. As such it is quaint in the layout of the building. We had the third storey room which was not ideal for me as I'm disabled but that was our fault not theirs. The stairs were a bit much as they are all shapes and sizes as ŷou...

Excellent customer service; friendly staff who were all more than happy to help accommodate us and our dog. The apartment was perfect, very cosy and clean, the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on! We ate our meals in the bar as no dogs were allowed in the restaurant however we didn't feel out of place and...

We booked this with an air miles voucher. I was expecting to be staying in a country inn but the rooms themselves are chalets at the back of the inn with a bit of a walk back to the inn itself for evening meal and breakfast. It was quite dark and I felt a bit unsafe in my high heel...

This place needs to work out what it is and say it in the advertising. Close to Alton Towers is the only good point about it. I so wish we had known about the coupons as they at least would have reduced the price of our poor stay. The rooms are like chalets, placed in an unwelcoming yard. You don't...
