Planning consent was granted in September 2014 by Derbyshire Dales District Council for the development on formerly derelict land in front of Arc on Bakewell Road after a unanimous decision by councillors. The hotel has been specially designed to echo the style of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. 

The £4million hotel development features 58 bedrooms, parking provision and an on-site Thyme restaurant serving a contemporary British menu. Each of the Premier Inn’s new-generation bedrooms features a 40″ flat screen TV, a bright, modern bathroom with a large shower head and a Hypnos® bed.
