"In desperate need of refurbishment"
In many ways this large converted chapel is ideally situated and spacious in many ways. The lounge is great for evenings spent chatting in a large group. The bedrooms are reasonably large and there a… More
The Old Chapel had been booked and enjoyed by this group on a previous occasion so I am amazed that they have commented about the access to the property as they were fully aware of the parking arrangements and that access is via an alley way. This time, however, their party did include some senior members, and when I attended to fix the slight floor depressions and the single broken bed slat that had been mentioned, the senior guests told me that they felt the stairs were more than they could manage, and they chose to spend most of their stay in the lower ground floor lounge. They had perhaps not been fully briefed by the regular guests who had made the booking, upon both the 1st floor nature of the main living room, nor upon the alley way acess to the property?
The parking is properly and fully described on the web site.
The guests had mentioned during their stay a depression in the floor boards at the bottom of the kitchen stairs and in the middle of the lounge floor and that a bed slat to a ground floor twin bed room was damaged. Only one slat was mentioned and only one was found.
The issues were emailed on the 23rd September and by the 24th a joiner had rectified them and the slight carpet depression was removed and levelled with plywood panelling beneath. A new bed slat was added to the twin bedroom and no other damaged ones were found. There were not 'many bed slats broken'!
No other guests have mentioned the size of the kitchen and with the range cooker there is plenty of cooking facilities and oven space for a full Christmas lunch!
Chairs were not mentioned in the original email but one was found to be broken upon their departure.
Their original email stated:
'This week we are continuing to enjoy ourselves however would like to highlight a couple of issues… but just wanted you to know about these problems'
It should be mentioned that the chapel was certainly not left as found as per 'booking conditions' and the team of cleaners complained about the state of the property after the guests' departure. Some of their security deposit was retained to cover the extra cleaning. So what was a situation of their merely high lighting some issues (which were promptly dealt with) now seems to have turned into a rather unfair complaint.

"Very outdated, needs plenty of work"
Went to stay in 'Old Baptist Chapel' on Bridge Street in Belper in August with extended family old and young. The chapel is ideally placed for Matlock, Carsington Water and even Alton Tower… More
The Old Chapel in Belper is accurately described on the web site and in our brochure, and fully mentions the different levels within the property. This makes the chapel a very interesting building and the bedrooms, kitchen and dining room on the gallery overlooking the main lounge give an airy open plan feel, which is a delight, and allows guests to socialise fully.
It was unfortunate that both fridges stopped working on the same day but both were replaced immediately by the owner that very day. The owner lives just around the corner from the chapel so can attend to any problems that may occur promptly.
The parking at the Devonshire that has been agreed with the landlord for our guests is recommended by the owner in all the literature.
