We needed a place to stay for our annual gathering which usually takes place in fairly swish city centre type apartments so this was a real break from the norm and we all loved it. The rooms, bedding, etc were all clean and tidy. I felt the top bunks were slightly more comfy but that will no doubt vary from...

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave us a review. I am really pleased you had a great stay. I will pass on to the housekeeping staff how pleased you were with the cleanliness, and to our Reception staff for the good feedback. Our heating is temperamental, and the radiator in the dining room is a fine line...

Stayed here one night as a half way point to meet friends from Manchester. Great place and very reasonably priced. Excellent circular walk from the hostel too. Great facilities for kids too. Would highly recommend.

This house is beautiful. We arrived in the rain, dark, bit scary. But the house was lovely, the welcome at reception was great. Lovely lounge to hunker down in on sofas with a glass of wine. Shame the fires weren't working, as they were being refurbished, but all was great. Beds were comfortable compared to some of the YHA places....

YHA Hartington is a beautiful building more like a hotel than a Youth Hostel. The days of travelling teenagers filling the place in line with the YHA motto appear to be long gone.

Hartington Hall is a great place to stay in the Peak District. A good base for a weekend of walking the surrounding countryside.

I stayed in the Coach House, it had everything I needed, including our own small private kitchen. Quiet clean and the YHA is in a lovely location - perfect for walking. The wifi is a bit unpredictable if you have an iPhone - but always worked in the end - it just took patience.
