Stayed here for 4 nights with a group of friends. What a gem - great food all freshly cooked with local produce. The owners were great - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is an old building full of character and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel if holidaying in... More

Had a four night stay at The temple as part of a group of fifteen. They provided dinner, bed & breakfast for us even though they don't normally do evening meals.The food was all freshly prepared & home made. Delicious! The portion sizes were enough to feed a small army. The owners were very friendly & helpful. The hotel is... More

Together with some dear friends of many years standing, I spent 3 nights at the Temple Hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and the hospitality was outstanding. For our first evening it was Temple Hotel 'pie night', so we ate our evening meal at the hotel. The food was excellent. Everyone had a great time, thank you very much.

Booked on a whim for a few nights away not too far from home and wasn't sure what to expect - we discovered an older / traditional hotel with creaking floorboards and charming features etc - in other words - character. The outside is in need of a lick of paint - but I understand this is in planning -... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and the staff could not have been any better. Extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of options to choose from. The rooms were lovely. The hallway was just a little bit noisy but only on occasion. Some great walks are right on the doorstep as well as the... More

I decided for my birthday last year I wanted to stay in Matlock - so this hotel was chosen and booked by me. The views are gorgeous, the building is beautiful and we can't wait to go back and see what it looks like now as the owners were doing some work on it whilst we were there which doesn't... More
