Riverbank from the very front door has an inviting warm welcome, then you step inside the Beautiful house, with a cosy, home from home feel all the way through, decorated to a high standard even down to the Christmas Decs, tree & glowing Fireplace, simply the perfect touch & just what was needed after a -1degree cold frosty xmas market...

This Guest House is operated by a very friendly and efficient couple. It's located down a short cul-de-sac within the town so is quiet, with plenty of parking, yet right in the middle of all the facilities. The bonus is a lovely garden by the river (hence the name) although we didn't make use of that because of the wet... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverbank Hotel. The location was perfect – in the centre of Matlock and very handy for exploring some of the Peak District’s great walks. The room was clean and comfortable, and we slept amazingly well! Breakfast was delicious and of high quality, and served with a smile from our friendly and helpful hosts.... More

What a pleasant hotel. Room 9 was very cosy but overlooks the front. Nothing was too much trouble. Graham cooks a wicked brekkie folks. Be careful using satnav. The road you actually turn down isnt shown.. that is no fault of the place though. All in all def worth a visit ... we are going back

We stayed here for two nights and it was a very pleasant stay. The location was perfect for us as we were 10 minutes away from where our friends live and was the purpose of our visit. From the outside the house looks very nice and once inside we were not dissappointed, there was an old fahioned charm about the... More

Set at the end of a private road two Victorian villas have been made into one property making it an ideal location with no passing traffic. The furnishings are in keeping with the age and style of the property, though with a modern comfortable bed and bathroom. Our room was on the back of the property and set exactly at... More

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
