The Riverbank had a fantastic location, very handy for getting to the playground in the park in the evenings after a day out. The breakfast was very tasty, and lots of choice! The room was really clean, and although we were looking at the road, it was a really quiet road. The family room was a nice size and the... More

The guest house provided every thing an Aussie family would expect on a trip to the UK - a cozy, warm friendly atmosphere where the owners made us feel welcome and looked after all of us brilliantly above and beyond our expectations, plus ensuring we were...

Issues with housekeeping in several areas.Breakfast was only just acceptable even though we had to order the night before. A very average experience but hosts were friendly and informative. In need of some upgrading

What a pity you did not mention any of these issues when you checked out of our guest house. We always ask our guests whether everything was to their satisfaction as we bid them farewell. We would have happily discussed the specified matters with you at the time of your stay. More

The location is excellent being only a 5 minute walk through a park to the centre of Matlock. The room was comfortable and well furnished. On a sunny day as we had the large garden with river frontage is pleasant to spend time in. The breakfast choice was very good and the quality excellent. The owner was very welcoming and... More

We stayed here in May and were so impressed that we stayed an extra night. Our room at the top was so pretty and the view of the river and the beautiful garden topped it off. The staff were very attentive and the food was scrumptious and plentiful. Thank you for a lovely break.
