Positive Reviews

Gorgeous grounds make for a great getaway

For travellers visiting the Cromford area, the stately grounds at Alison House cannot be matched Despite being only a short walk from town, the hotel has a serenity that is ideal for special getaways or memorable celebrations Active guests will also enjoy the area for the many hiking and climbing opportunities.

Staff gets top marks for meeting requests

Guests will receive a warm welcome that sets the tone for their entire stay Many reviews compliment the staff for their willingness to fulfil any special request, whether it is from a single traveller or a group conducting a special event.

High value for comfort and quality

The size of the rooms at Alison House, in addition to the level service and quality of food, causes many guests to do a double take at their final bill The amenities and professionalism are far higher here than what a traveller might expect considering the cost.

Negative Reviews

Cleaning quality is inconsistent

While many of the staff go out of their way to help hotel guests, the job performed by the cleaning staff is inconsistent at best Despite some guests commenting on how clean the accommodations are, other comments list issues such as cobwebs, dead flies, and layers of dust.

Minor improvements would help throughout

The Alison House is known for being a historic structure Despite the charm of the building’s age, some minor upgrades are needed to meet modern traveller expectations Improving the plumbing system to provide stronger and warmer showers, or boosting the Wi-Fi signal, would do a lot to perfect guest experiences.

More disappointing than bad

While online reviews for Alison House nitpick on a few aspects of the hotel, most of the negative comments are more of an underwhelming experience based on high expectations rather than outright problems occurring during a stay.
