Me and my partner called in at this place for breakfast, the decor is very laid back with nice relaxing music in the background, they even had a settee to chill out on, the proprietor was polite and very business like, perhaps having a more friendly approach would have been better. but not everyone is the same, the full English...

We booked this place during the Matlock Bath illuminations so there wasn't much choice. Our expectations weren't high on the basis of what I'd read in other reviews. It was okay enough. The room was clean and the bed comfy. The bathroom felt a bit unloved. Overall the place needed a thorough redecoration. The owner's welcome left a lot to... More

Booked this last minute as everywhere else in Matlock bath were full and we didn't want to miss out on a bank holiday weekend break in this lovely town. Paid extra for the ensuite room but were really disappointed. Although sheets were clean the rest of the bedding were grubby, worn and ripped. The room was tired and worn ,... More

For the last few years myself and a group of friends travel through Matlock on the way to the Peak District at this time if year. For the last 3 years we have stopped at The Old Bank Cafe for a break and food. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. We all expressed how much we enjoyed it. The... More

Can't believe this mans aggressive attitude towards his paying guests. Having stayed in the Old Bank Cafe B&B for one night (thank god) we was exposed to air fresher after air fresher to hide the musty smell of all the rooms, the bedding was worn and ripped and the duvets being very thin where dreadful and old. The owner is... More

The staff was very rude, sounded racist(I may be wrong), but no manners at all. The person had no manners to talk and kept saying does not care. Amazing. Just two days in to UK and this rude attitude does not reflect well.
