We stayed at Ellen House for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Anne and John are the perfect hosts, being very friendly and showing a real love and passion in what they do. There were so many lovely little extra touches, ranging from the homemade jam and marmalade on the breakfast table to the surprise of finding fresh biscuits and... More

Recently spent two nights at Ellen House and had a very enjoyable stay. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and so was our room. Extremely well appointed with everything you could want and some nice extra thoughtful touches which you'll have to find yourselves. Breakfast was very good with ample choice and beautifully cooked. We had not been to the... More

Needing a break from home and work and with the need to chill out and not wanting to travel too far my partner and I picked this lovely little b&b in Matlock. The hosts John and Anne are very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is to die for and the homemade marmalade is so scrummy that you just keep asking... More

I booked here after stumbling across the website in search of last minute weekend break. This is a lovely B&B, very quiet, but very close to Matlock railway station. I had a relaxing couple of nights here in a comfy bed and was able to explore Matlock and Matlock Bath. The B&B is comfortable and good quality, everything you need... More

I think this is about the 6th time we have stopped here and again it cannot be faulted. Anne and John always make us so welcome that it feels like our second home. We both tried the continental breakfast this time, it was lovely and filled us up until the evening.

A lovely little B&B. John and Anne are incredibly welcoming and helpful, and are genuinely interested in their guests. The train station is maybe a 1-2 minute walk away, and the town is not much further. The room we had was immaculate and there were numerous pamphlets prepared about local sights and attractions (Chatsworth House is just one quick bus... More

Perfectly clean, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious, perfect x 10/10 can't wait to go back Lots to see anddo in Matlock and Matlock bath.

Stayed at Ellen House for 2 nights this Easter weekend, and had a very enjoyable stay. We wanted somewhere that was conveniently located for outdoor climbing in the area and Matlock was on the list. We had left it late to book and when a B&B has late availability it's hard to judge if it will be any good, even... More

This is a great B&B, really nice food (try the South african breakfast!), lovely owners are very friendly and helpful, immaculately clean, excellently furnished. Just a minutes walk from town centre. Very cosy. Highly recommended!

Thank you for this recommendation, Ben, we work hard to maintain the high standard in our rooms. So pleased you enjoyed John's delicious South African breakfast, it is different from a normal full English, but always popular! As you said, our location is great; you can eat out at night in one of our many restaurants without having to drive... More

Just returned from 2 nights at Ellen House and the room we had was superb, with the bed being very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and the hosts were very welcoming. Hope to back before long.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us. We do get many lovely reviews about John's breakfasts, so it is good to know that you enjoyed it as well. Having a comfortable bed is very important to us, and we constantly tweak our rooms to maintain the standard. Anne More
