Positive Reviews

Stunning views.

Monsale Head's view of the surrounding dale and its historic buildings is truly a sight to behold, and most rooms at the hotel feature a glimpse of the valley. Whether you choose to walk the paths along the valley or take a drive toward Bakewell and surrounding towns, you'll be immersed in the beautiful sights.

Varied menus.

Whether you prefer to eat a fresh steak or dine with vegetarian options, Monsal Head has you covered. The ingredients are all local and certified to be fresh and in-season, which creates award-winning meals for both breakfast and dinner. The on-site bar is also a must-see establishment.

Friendly to pets.

If you plan on taking a trip with your four-legged friend, this is the perfect destination. Full of roaming valleys and hills as well as special accommodations for pets, Monsal Head is a great mixture of comfort, class, and pet-friendly access.

Negative Reviews

Outdated furnishings.

Part of the charm of Monsal Head is its reliance on history and old-world fashion, including the masonry on some of its buildings, but certain aspects have been worn down by age and require some attention. Some of the wood is mouldy, and things such as linens and paint should be replaced.

Limited ale selection.

If you're looking to load up on a number of different ales in the lounge and bar area, you'll be disappointed: Monsal Head has a very limited range of drinks, and while the products are all good quality, you won't have as much variety as you might expect.

Distance from attractions.

While the rural charm of the area and its beautiful views are fantastic, you'll certainly need a car or access to the nearby rail station to see more of the major sites in the region.
