This is by no means a criticism of the hotel itself, but we have just had our bookings cancelled. We had booked our one-night stop-over "during the May peak season". We can fully understand they want to maximize efficiency during the peak season, but maybe they can put this review on their headers as we were un-aware they didn't want... More

Overnight stay at Riverbank for a walking weekend. Very pleased with our choice. Nice room with tea/coffee etc. Welcoming owners and excellent breakfast. Really liked the fact that we could walk just a short distance to many nice restaurants and bars in the evening. A lovely place to stay.

Attractive house with beautiful garden backing onto river. Ideally situated in quiet cul de sac with parking space and a footbridge close by gives access to park and the town centre with its shops and eateries, just a short stroll away. Downstairs, House has an eclectic mix of retro and current furniture with a quirky style, where family photos vie... More

There were six of us staying over the weekend, on a walking trip. The owners were very welcoming and the location of the guest house is ideal; central, yet quiet. Plenty of car parking space, too. Bedrooms were en-suite and quite large; breakfasts were excellent.

Everything at Riverbank was done to perfection. Location was great for seeing the town and the free parking very useful. Breakfasts very good and nothing too much trouble for the hosts. A great place to stay!

This guest house is in the centre of Matlock but just off the main road, so seems to escape all traffic noise. Private parking outside the front door, a lovely garden to walk in, and private river fishing available from the end of the garden. Rooms are traditional decor but clean and spacious, and include bottled water, tea, coffee,and bathroom... More

My partner and I stayed two nights here. Room and en-suite were large and very clean. The hotel owner Graham was very friendly and accommodating. Great parking and good signal wifi in our room. They took our breakfast order the night before and was allocated a dedicated time slot (very efficient), food was great and of a moderate serving. I... More
