Went here for breakfast. Have to say the owner has manners that leave a lot to be desired. Food not that good although freshly cooked. Won't go back in a hurry!

Of course we all go to Matlock Bath for the Blackpool-in-the-Peaks thing, but when you've had enough of the tat shops and ice-cream, I'd say pop along here for a classy cuppa on a table that is not made of plastic. Very helpful owner, and a comfy sofa with colouring books under the table for the kids - ahhhh, bliss!

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
