I stayed in the Riverbank guesthouse in March with two friends and it was such a happy weekend. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown to our very cute room with matching wallpaper and bedspreads, a TV and good bathroom. We spent the afternoon by the fire (well tended by one of the owners) playing cards in the communal... More

We have just returned from a short break to the Peaks and stayed overnight at this lovely guest house. We stayed in Room 1, which was a double room with wonderful views over the garden and riverbank. The hosts were so welcoming and helpful, absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable.... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights a week ago. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was great with plenty of choices. Our room overlooked the park and river and was lovely, very clean and comfy, would definitely recommend to friends and family. Perfect location to see the area and loved Matlock.

A wonderful Easter weekend at The Riverbank. A wonderful guesthouse in a perfect location for exploring Matlock and it's beautiful surrounding area. The hosts and staff couldn't be more attentive or charming, but leave you to enjoy your break once you are settled in. The breakfasts are an absolute delight. We will certainly be back!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this delightful guesthouse. Perfect location, especially for my husband who cannot walk too far. I was very pleased with the advice I got from Graham on walking along the river and up the steep hill to the Tor with amazing views over the town and surroundings. Only wish we had more time...

This is the third time we have stayed at the Riverbank guest house. We have always been made to feel very welcome. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and warm. Breakfasts have always been very tasty a great way to start the day. We will be back again, keep up the good work!

This is a large, Edwardian house, with bags of charm and a lovely ambience. The parking is off road and the house is very close to the town centre, and to the park that has an excellent cafe. The room was a good size and very clean, complete with good views.The landlady was very helpful and friendly. The other guests... More

We are sorry you found your stay uncomfortable, if we had known a local mattress supplier can deliver within the hour. We will now try and find the room you had and change it. WE would point out that our butcher has won awards around the East Midlands and none of his products are cheap.Our 4 star award is given... More
