More than served purpose of room provision. Arrived 14.30,shown to suite which was most impressive. Then returned at midnight after family party. Had key to enter at any time. Most comfortable bed and no road noise despite having window open.
Breakfast arranged for 10.00 was excellent - great variety despite us being only residents.
Polite and attentive staff.
Plenty of safe on site parking. Read more
We enjoyed a wonderful evening with our family in a private dining room where the food was excellent and the service exceptional. We had discussed earlier a menu for our guests which was for four diverse and all very delicious choices for each course.
Our room was very quiet, comfortable and clean, with an excellent shower. Read more

We do have the advantage of a lovely village in set in South Derbyshire and find many of our guests feel relaxed and welcomed when they stay with us.

Parking provided and greeted by friendly staff before being shown to our suite- old wooden beams, in keeping furniture, low ceilings- all added to the quaint setting. The bathroom was huge, the bath is a must, slightly let down by the power of the shower. Drinks in the bar, good choice and reasonable prices in a friendly setting. breakfast - fast service, good choice but wouldn't have paid extra if not included as overpriced. Excellent value for overnight stay and would definitely stay again. Read more

Good Afternoon and thank you for your great review of the Blenheim House staff, rooms and food. We really appreciate your comments and have passed these on to all our staff. We hope to see you back in Derbyshire again soon, thanks again.
Adequate for a short stay. Saved by the food and service.
Bathroom very cramped and large old cobweb over door.
Bedroom OK for short stay but have doubts that the bed was King=sized. Read more
May I apologise for the standard cleanliness of the bathroom during your 2 day stay with us. We always try to maintain a high standard at all times and although we missed the cobweb we hope that everything else in the bathroom and bedroom was clean. With regard to the size of the bathroom, they are small but we find adequate for most guests. Unfortunatley we did not build these and due to the age of the Blenheim each bathroom had to be fitted to the space available. Thank you for your comments
Well located for peak district and city visit Read more

Wide choice on menu. Very comfortabe and clean room with good choice of tea,coffee in room. Very attentive staff. Down side was the route to the bedrooms cut through a room used for parties. It was quite small so the long table diagonally placed. It was being used for a family meal. It was embarrassing trying to squeeze past with a suitcase. Read more
Good evening Wendy thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on your stay at the Blenheim House. We are pleased that you enjoyed both the meal and overnight stay with us, we understand that some of our rooms are a bit awkward to get too and when we have tables using the 'snug' it can be difficult, unfortunately the Blenheim is a listed building and so we are not allowed to make any changes to the inside or out but thank you for your thoughts on looking at an alternative route.
