Overview

Makeney Hall Hotel is a Victorian mansion with views across the Amber Valley and the Peak District. The 4-star property is set in six acres of grounds and retains period features including elegant oak panelling and an oak fireplace.

The hotel is in the Derbyshire village of Milford, and there is lots to do in the area. The hotel is less than 15 minutes' drive from Kedleston Hall, a "spectacular 18th-century mansion with [Robert] Adam interiors and parkland", according to the National Trust.

The hotel is close to the River Derwent and there are lots of local heritage walks in the Derwent Valley, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its history of cotton production.

The edge of the Peak District National Park is a 30-minute drive away. Chatsworth House near Bakewell (home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire) and Haddon Hall, a Tudor country house with Elizabethan gardens, are less than 50-minutes' drive away. You can also explore the market town of Bakewell, home of the Bakewell pudding and "ringed by famous walking trails and stately homes", according to Lonely Planet.

The conservatory restaurant serves local and seasonal ingredients and has views of the garden.

Well-behaved pets are an extra £20 per room, per night.

Good bedroom and hotel grounds. \Very good evening meal and service.
Other Comments
The hotel didn't separate a very noisy family wedding party from regular guests e.g. the lounge was taken over and breakfast was chaotic with young children running round the self-service hot food. Breakfast service was poor. The bar was tiny, with inadequate seating for the size of the hotel.

Other Comments
Staff were pleasant. Evening meal and breakfast good. I felt our Executive room did need an upgrade. Bathroom outdated. Lacked little extras like bottled water if you didnt want a hot drink. Extra pillows not provided in room but no doubt we could have asked for more. The shower over bath was poor. I do appreciate however it is an old building. The downstairs tastefully decorated and suited age of the building. Gardens lovely and quiet through night.

Excellent value for money; deal included dinner for two and a glass of wine per person. Enjoyed the break.
Other Comments
The windows outside could do with a good clean. And there were some cobwebs around the top of the curtains which needed dusting in the breakfast room. So, a bit of house-keeping attention to detail.
