The Temple Hotel is a 17th century, small, family run hotel in beautiful Matlock Bath. Our hosts, Mel and Chris, were very welcoming, the bar was open and our first evening started with a much needed drink! Our room was very nicely furnished and in keeping with the age of the hotel. We explored Matlock and surrounding area over the... More

I must say that this hotel really lived up to its reputation, despite the awful Bank Holiday Weather…It was a pleasure to stay there, and the staff couldn't be more pleasant, and its right in the bustle of Matlock Bath. We will certainly be going back there soon. many thanks to this lovely , clean hotel!!

Although it does need quite a bit of TLC and agree with another reviewer that it is a bit pricy for being a bit run down. We had a king room which advertises a king bed but it isn't what we would call a king, a lovely size room though which had a nice feel and hubby enjoyed the biscuits... More

average hotel, needs refurbishing inside and out, very clean, friendly staff nothing too much trouble, the breakfast was excellent, good quality food. A bit on the expensive side for a room that needed refurbishment.

I travelled to Matlock Bath for business, but enjoyed a relaxing stay in this family run hotel. The little linear town is land-locked and confined by the steep sided Derwent Valley, yet I could almost smell the ocean as it caused me to remember the seaside town in which I attended school as a child in the late sixties -...

A friend and I stayed here for the weekend. We were alarmed when we drove up that it was a long way down to the 'town' however we soon found the shortcut and it was easy. Good sized bedroom, well furnished and clean with an excellent bathroom with bath and shower. The bar feels more like a pub rather than... More

We were accepted here last minute by the lady owner who was so very pleasant on the phone, we were welcomed by the gentleman owner who was very pleasant and we instantly felt welcome, the hotel had a nice calm and clean feeling with some lovely touches and furnishing, the room was the same, very nice with lovely views of...

So if you like quirky, you may like this hotel. Obviously many people have. I prefer professional from the staff and comfortable from the accommodation, neither of which I got on my stay here. The hotel no longer does any food in the evening. There is no proper reception. Much of the fabric of the building is scruffy, although there... More

A small but nice hotel. I have stayed there several times and I find it really good. Very cosy pub with some nice beers. The full English breakfast is good. Nice location close to the centre of Matlock Bath.
