Rooms & Rates

The Rutland Arms Hotel is a Georgian property that was built in 1804. It's located in Bakewell, a busy market town in the Peak District National Park, and is steeped in history and tradition. Not only is The Rutland Arms Hotel reported to be the birthplace of the Bakewell pudding -- the thing that Bakewell is "probably best known for", according to Lonely Planet -- but it's also hosted the likes of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, JMW Turner and Lord Byron.

This stone-built property is reportedly where Austen stayed while writing "Pride and Prejudice", and Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, which both feature in the 2005 film adaptation of the novel, are both within 15 minutes' drive of the hotel.

Bakewell is "ringed by famous walking trails" (Lonely Planet), so it's a great base for those that appreciate the great outdoors. There's a 3.5-mile circular route along the Monsal Trail to Hassop Station, returning across fields to Bakewell. The spa town of Buxton and Matlock, Derbyshire's county town, are 20 minutes' drive away.

The hotel's Square Restaurant serves locally sourced produce, and all bedrooms feature country-style furnishings, a television, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There's free Wi-Fi throughout.

It should be made clear that the Courtyard rooms are separate from the main hotel, not only that but across the road. The Courtyard is basically a car park and our room didn't even look over that but over a very busy road. The parking is shocking. Everything was very basic considering the price.

It would have been nice to have been offered a free glass of dine, particularly as I didn't spend the £25 allowed for dinner, I asked but was told I couldn't spend the difference on wine. I thought this was a tad mean.
