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

Lovely old building in a great location over looking Matlock Bath. Very, very clean and well maintained. Staff welcoming enough. Didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on the food but I did hear other guests being very complimentary. I would happily stay again if we were in the area.

I enjoyed a decent meal here with some friends recently. The service was friendly and efficient both behind the bar and serving the food. It is a little difficult to find off the main road if you are not familiar with the area. Look out for the stone post at the junction with the A6

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
