Loved the hotel, the 4 poster bed was comfortable and the room was awesome, we never got to try the roll top bath , the view from the room was stunning, and exploring the caves and gardens behind the hotel was great fun, the breakfast, like the rest of the service there was top notch, and the hosts friendly and...

My wife my little doggy and myself booked into the hotel for an overnight stay as we fancied a night away. We arrived at Matlock bath and after a coffee and a walk around we still had about 3 hours till we could check in, so we went to hotel to drop the bags off and the manager greeted us... More

The owners of the hotel (Zoe & Chris) were so warm & friendly and made us feel so welcome. We booked a one night stay, but had to arrange a last minute one-night stay just before Christmas (to attend a close friend's funeral) - and Zoe & Chris, arranged things to accommodate us. Everything was perfect during our stay. Food... More

We had a brilliant two nights at hodgkinsons. From the moment you get there you feel relaxed and welcome, so nice to find somewhere that our little dog was not just allowed but welcomed too. The breakfast selection is the best I've seen and tasted amazing. We also ate in the restaurant on the Friday night the 3 course set... More

I am currently staying in lots of hotels throughout the UK for business. I am trying to find nice reasonably priced places with character. It's not easy! However Hodgkinsons certainly ticks all the boxes, really impressed and it's not often I give full marks. The hotel is clean throughout, the rooms are spotless with extremely comfortable beds and fantastic linen.... More

Stayed one night. Felt like we were coming home to a warm welcome .Treated like one of the Family with all the trimmings of a cosy boutique hotel. We enjoyed the blazing fire, great dinner and sizzling breakfast and will be coming back.

I think this hotel is suitable only for guests who are keen on extreme period styling. I found the room had too many ornaments covering the surfaces for me to comfortably put out my belongings. The breakfast was good. Did not have a full dinner, just soup & roll, which was homemade. I was not offered a drink.

You are correct that all our rooms are decorated to a style that is in line with the history of Hodgkinson’s as well as Matlock Bath, but with modern touches. We hope this is quite evident from the photos that are on the online booking site that you used as well as the extensive gallery on our own website and... More

This is now the 4th year that my wife and I have visited this wonderful Victorian hotel for our wedding anniversary and we loved our stay there. The hotel is like walking into a time capsule of the Victorian\ Edwardian period and it never fails to impress with its attention to period detail. The service was personal and the food... More
