We spent 3 nights at the Riverbank Guest House. This is our second stay, and it was as good as the first one. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We got stuck in traffic and were arriving quite late to check in, they waited up for us. Our room (#10) was on the second floor. It was very clean... More

We chose this property because of reviews we had read and it was very convenient (100 metres away) for the evening meal we had booked at nearby Stones restaurant. The hosts could not have been more welcoming, the room was comfortable and well equipped and the full English and vegetarian option breakfasts were perfect.

We stayed here for one night with friends, and found it very warm, cosy and welcoming. Jenny and Graham are delightful hosts, and nothing was too much trouble, right down to the blazing fire in the lounge. We had Room 1, overlooking the garden and the river, and were very comfortable. Very quiet location, private parking, but close to restaurants,... More

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
