We are a group of friends who meet in a different location each year-we met while teacher training 51 years ago! Riverbank was a very convenient situation, close to trains buses and the town but peaceful, near the river and a beautiful park. We had such a warm welcome by the friendly owners and were made to feel so comfortable... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at this b&b. The landlady was lovely and very welcoming. The b&b is in a great location for Matlock town and restaurants and bars. We had a lovely stay. The breakfast was very nice and sufficient for my husband who takes some filling! Thank you for a lovely stay.

I am sorry your experience was not up to our normal standards. When you arrived we were still making up rooms and laundry was all over the hall waiting to be counted, and arriving early you took us by surprise . I did ask for an hour to prepare your room. I have checked our booking confirmation and it does... More

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!

We stayed here last weekend and th welcome was very warm. Unfortunately I went down with flu so couldn't partake in the breakfast but TOH assures me it was brilliant. The room was perfect and decorated beautifully and the ensuite a good size. All was clean and tidy and well maintained. The bed was fantastic which was a god send... More

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...
