We stayed in this hotel as a mini getaway for 3 nights and we were extremely pleased with our stay. Set in a great location with Matlock and Matlock Bath both a short stroll away, overlooked by high tor and across the road from the river. The room was comfortable, clean and pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful,... More

My husband, toddler and I stayed for one night in room 6 with dinner and breakfast included. Our room was very nice, clean and spacious. Suited the 3 of us well. Dinner was good, as was breakfast and they catered well for our 2 year old also. Staff v friendly.

Stayed at the High Tor for romantic weekend. Great location - Matlock itself is very unique and then it is a great location to explore the Peak District as well. The hotel is nice and clean, very recomended for a stay, though it is a bit of a stretch calling it a boutique hotel. I paid a bit extra for... More

I stopped with a friend for a much needed break. We had a luxury double bedroom, we were booked into a standard double but were upgraded by the manager which was nice of her. The standard would not have been big enough but you get what you pay for. We ate in their restaurant before we went into Matlock, the... More

A very disappointing experience.Thirty of us sat in a small cold dining room and when we asked for the heating to be turned on we were told the radiator was on a timer. The 3 course meal was spoilt because the food was nearly cold. The yorkshire pudding was a joke...solid and sad. I felt that there was not enough... More

I am sorry you were not satisfied with your lunch with us, the letter we received from the organiser indicated differently. The organiser personally requested the use of our smaller dining room, of which the front door heaters were on as not to overheat yourselves whilst eating. The home made lunch was greatly received by other group members. I have... More

I booked this based on a friend's recommendation, and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly, helpful and the room was fantastic; about the size of a 1 bed flat in London, we had a king size bed, and huge double bath, huge rain head shower and plenty of wardrobe space. The hotel was clean, well positioned, and well priced.... More

This was a very disappointing experience. The service was non existent in the bar and restaurant. Only one other couple ate in the restaurant (Saturday night) which should have warned us of what was to come! The food was tolerable but much of it emanating from packets - frozen mixed vegetables and potato croquettes. As for the rooms the doubles... More

Stayed from Sheffield for a night to watch a band (Proud Mary) at the local music venue 'The Loft.' Really nice and the decor was really modern. Room was a £90 a night - it was really small but perfect for what we needed and again was immaculate. There is a bar area but thought it was set out rather... More
