Haven't actually stayed here, but have attended thrice yearly evening dinners for many years with a group of former colleagues. We are normally in the upstairs Panorama room, which can accommodate large groups. We always receive great service from the proprietors, Chris and Mel and the staff including Rachael and Keith. The meals provided are exceptionally good quality and value... More

I have stayed at the hotel twice in the last 2 months. Location and views are great and the rooms very nice indeed. I was however disappointed by the breakfast - low quality ingredients , soggy toast. The real bug bear for me though was the lack of ice at the bar. On the first visit the barman said they... More

This was our second time staying at the Temple Hotel and it won't be our last. The minute you enter the Hotel a warm welcome awaits you from the owners Chris & Mel. Our room was clean, tastefully decorated and had a great view over the river. The bar is extremely well stocked with a range of real ales and... More

We stay at the Temple for a weekend every November for a get together with friends. Over the years we've seen steady improvements to the old place and, with fresh carpets and refurbished bedrooms, it's a comfortable and quirky place to stay near the centre of Matlock Bath. Having said that, it is situated up a rather steep hill which... More

Booked last minute and very impressed by 3 nights for the price of 2 - making it very affordable for families. Visited as a family of 4 with both sets of our parents, making a group of 8 in total. Puzzled on booking that our children had to be split between our room and a grandparents room as our family... More

Thank you for all the nice comments that you have written about the hotel and the area. We did discuss why we limit the amount of children and our policy with the person that made this booking so we can't see why you are surprised why we split the children in the group. This was agreed to at the time... More

Very friendly staff and some fantastic real ales. Food is now only available on certain days, with a theme, targeted mainly at the locals, but guests are welcome and we never felt out if place. It was pie night for us and it was lovely, with really nice veg.
