I stayed at The dog and Partridge inn just outside Ashbourne. The accommodation was lovely, clean and comfortable and you can park your car right next to your room. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and outstanding. This is a great location for visiting many attractions such as Ashbourne, Carsington Water, Dovedale Matlock, Alton Towers to name but a few.
I have had the chance to drive a stunning Ferrari, also my co driver has been very friendly and kind. I am very happy I did this experience.
Got this as a Christmas present from our younger son. (Get one every year). This hotel was in a lovely location and our room had a beautiful view. The room itself was lovely and very clean and comfortable. It was also nice and warm. Our meal in the evening was delicious and would like to say we really appreciate vegetarian full English breakfasts!
We were bought a gift last Christmas for Afternoon Tea and were able to exchange it for a Three course meal at Prezzo. Although it had been extended by 6 months due to COVID we did manage to use the gift just before second lockdown. We had a lovely meal and it was all safe with socially distanced tables etc. Easy to book and a lovely experience. Would recommend.
