We stayed for four nights for a Peak District break and easy access to the Monsal trail. Bakewell is a good location with the Rutland Arms right in the centre. This is a nice looking hotel with a lot going for it. But it is lacking in several areas.

Our room was a superior room. Excellent bed so we slept well. Important. Not much room to move round in though. It was very clean, but niggly failings like every time you lean over the sink you bang your head on a glass shelf in front of the mirror. Very nice bathrobes but not big enough to cover our modesty and a shower that had a prostate problem. Our room was in an annex across the road from the main hotel, which posed some challenges crossing near a roundabout. That said we had one of the few rooms that overlook the very pleasant Bath gardens open to the public. Also when we could park our car it was below our room, so handy. However, getting a parking space is a faff (so few spaces) and finding overnight parking elsewhere is not easy or requires a pre 8am journey to retrieve ones car to avoid enforcement.

The atmosphere inside the hotel was pleasant, the bar was welcoming with a couple of local beers and the dining room had a fairly good ambience with lots of pictures / paintings. The staff were pleasant. However, at nearly every meal something didn't arrive or arrived too late to enjoy. If you like a full English breakfast you should be pretty content. They are currently freshly and well prepared and plentiful. Mind the tea though, cheap catering tea was rather grim.

Dinners though were rather poor. No change in the daily menu meant limited choice. Also there was an over reliance on fried food with nearly everything served with chips. Everything else felt like it had been pre-prepared and heated through. On our fourth night we found a very good restaurant nearby

I would say the rooms are overprices but this is the first time we've stayed in a hotel post lockdown.. Food and drink prices were reasonable but reflected the quality. If you're happy with the compromises and minor inconveniences, the Rutland Arms is nonetheless a pleasant location for a short stay.

Recently renovated, new interior, very tasteful, very clean, beds super comfortable. Right in the centre of Bakewell, great real ale pub over the road. Food in the restaurant was very good, plenty of breakfast options. Hotel bar has Thornbridge Green Mountain and Jaipur on draft, one happy husband!
Service was very good and friendly, will come back and would definitely recommend. Hotel Parking is very limited, there is on road parking close by.

Room tip: Get there early to bag a packing spot

This recently refurbished hotel was a pleasant surprise. Our room, which was situated in the courtyard over the road was small but very comfortable and quiet with several small touches such as bottles of water, quality tea and coffee bags, coffee maker, small bars of chocolate and biscuits. The toiletries were good quality as were the towels. We dined in one night and the menu was small but varied and the service was good. Unfortunately, breakfast on both days was haphazard. On the first day we received our cooked breakfast before our neighbours who had been seated well before us and on the second morning we seemed to have been forgotten as the same thing happened to us. After half an hour we received one cooked breakfast but it was cold and had to be sent back. It returned but the scrambled egg was now rubbery as was the toast. However, we were assured that the management is trying to sort the situation out as pre-covid they ran a buffet for breakfast. We did book at the most popular time when the staff were flat out. We would not let this put us off as the whole place is delightful, good value and the staff are more than friendly and helpful.

Fantastic hotel, stayed with my mum in a twin room whilst visiting Bakewell. The room was immaculate and had everything you could need, beds were very comfy. We had an evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant, the menu had plenty of choice and the food was fantastic. We enjoyed some cocktails as well, the barman (I didn't get his name) made me the best Amaretto Sour ever, even though it wasn't on the menu, very good customer service. The only slightly inconvenience of the stay was there was no car parking spaces available when we arrived, so had to move the car later on once spaces were available. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend.

Stopped on a Saturday night recently, we had a travel zoo deal which had been cancelled twice due to circumstances. Paid £69 for an overnight stay in a small en-suite double room across the road in probably what was once an outbuilding for some other use. The room was of high standard, with a lovely shower bathroom and fast free WiFi with tea, coffee making facilities. Included in this rate was a full breakfast which was set in the beautiful main hotel building restaurant, also included was free parking if you’re lucky as limited spaces. We had also a late checkout, which we had to say as they wasn’t aware of this. Staff were generally friendly, but we felt a little distant and hurried as when we rang reception to say the heating wasn’t working, we was told it was set to come on at 6pm even though we told them the room was cold she said open the bathroom door to get heat from the electric radiator. In the end the heating did not come on at the said time, so we managed in a cold bedroom as it was early October and it had rained all day and was cold outside.
