This was a break with a group of friends. It's always difficult to find large enough places where we can eat and socialise together and this seemed to fit the bill. The property looks attractive from the outside but the first impression as I entered one was of the strong smell of damp and mustiness together with the darkness of... More

We spent a long weekend at the Barn (not Riber Hall), 18 of us in total and had a great time. The weather was a major plus as we spent all weekend in the garden, playing tennis and swimming at Cromford meadows (5 min drive away). Although some of the other reviews complain about the small kitchen and access to... More

We were a group of 7 couples who rented Riber Barn ( part of Riber Hall ) for a weekend break. We booked via Cottages4you and were very disappointed in the standards of this property for the price we paid. This worked out at £120 per couple per night. First, we had a very poor level of information before we... More

Harthill, Owner at Riber Hall, responded to this review

As you will notice, I don’t tend to respond to reviews. However, on this occasion I do believe it is wholly unfair. I will address each point: ‘£120 per couple’ The actual cost of the property which sleeps 20 is £32.50pppn for 10 en suite bedrooms each with sony LCD LED tv , many of which are 4 poster beds...

We stayed for two nights in the picturesque grounds of Riber Hall. We would strongly advise anyone who is travelling by foot to take the train to Matlock Bath then take the public footpath through Starkholmes, we instead walked two miles uphill from Cromford train station and rued the decision. Travel information from Derbyshire Country Homes is one of the... More

We enjoyed our stay at this venue and in visiting several locations nearby. We would definitely return to both the area and this coach house. A coach house refurbished to a unique standard, set in a very tranquil setting. No mass lighting, but subtle and subdued that added to its charm. We stayed in one of the first floor bedrooms... More

Beautiful place. Such a peaceful place in full view of Riber Castle. The countryside around the hotel is lovely. The hotel rooms have lots of original features but with everything you need for either a long stay or overnight. Excellent place for touring the area

Idyllic , peaceful and steeped in history, a wonderful stay in classic surroundings. Fantastic 4 poster bed. Best night's sleep in years! I'll be back! Found no problems with facilities or noise whatsoever.

This may be a romantic getaway, but do you really want to sit in your room listening to everyone around you getting romantic? Or listening to their televisions, talking, or walking around on creaky floors above your head? The walls and floors are all paper thin, and clearly the owners cannot be bothered to upgrade them to a reasonable standard.... More

My friend booked this place for a hen in July and a wonderful time was had by all. I do think this was helped by the good weather as we spent the day sunbathing and playing in paddling pool we brought along. I think needing to go outside to get to kitchen would be a pain if the weather was... More
