            Very helpful staff who made us extremely welcome. The additional facilities such as pool, sauna etc. were great. Breakfast was super and room impeccable.

            Central heating not working but once we asked we found the separate electric fire hidden in a cupboard.

            Ambience and location

            Good Hotel - Hotel rates good but bar prices were extreme £ 2.50 glass of coca cola and ice, £ 2.00 for a mixer size lemonade

            The hotel itself, and its setting. Also the friendly staff.

            There was no cold water in the bath/shower on evening of arrival. This had been rectified next morning. on the On the Best Western website I was unable to find the hotel, whose name I had forgotten, by entering either Allensford or Consett in the lacation slot.

            This hotel has great promise - but doesn't deliver. Many of the staff seem to be poorly trained and supervised. A suited staff member at breakfast snapped at me when I queried why there was only one egg on my plate (others had two), he said that there were two and that the other one as underneath - it wasn't, the sausage was of the very cheapest quality. A member of the bar staff said not a word when she cleared our plates from the table after supper - my wife's ham sandwich was served in dry bread, my rib-eye steak was the toughest I have ever tasted; the so-called salad was a few chopped salad leaves (obviously from a packet) with three slices of tomato on top, there was no dressings or mustards available. The bench settee seating in the bar was very hard and uncomfortble. The 'noise' played in the public areas was some radio programme with talk and wailing music - quite out of keeping with the style of the hotel and the average older age of the other guests - probably more for the benefit of the staff than the guests. This hotel advertises 'disabled access - where? The only sign we saw of it were no steps into the reception area on the ground floor. Our room, also on the ground floor, had sixteen steps to get to the reception area a further four to the lift (which did not serve the second floor), and more steps to get to the dining room. I am disabled, with mobility problems, and found it very difficult; for someone in a wheelchair it would have been impossible.

            The loaction and look of the hotel is wonderful. Good food in the evening and nice bar area

            The staff were a little moody in the evening. But the breakfast staff were very pleasent

            The location of Derwent Manor was absolutely beautiful with fantastic views all round. The rooms were very big. We stayed there for a wedding and David who was in charge of he wedding party was a fantastic bloke who was extremely helpful and made sure everything went as it should.

            Access for wheels chairs and push chairs was available but sometimes you have to go a long way to get to where your going because of access points.

            Pleasant suroundings and very pleasant staff.

            Our suite was directly above a function room where a wedding night party was on. So it was noisey until quite late. No CD player in the room as was advertised and although I left a note in the booking form that it was our first wedding aniversary, no mention was made about this and it seemed just a waste of time putting anything on the 'comments ' section if no one can be bothered to look at it!

            Good location just of the A68 to Scotland, scenery is very good, food is good. Staff friendly Rooms are very large but now in need of refurbishment, road leading to hotel needs to be repaired

            Road of A68 to hotel is becoming dangerous with big pot holes. Rooms are nice and large but in need of refurbishment, new TVs need to be installed with Sky
