We found this B&B on line and didn't check the reviews it was in Matlock and thats where we wanted to be for one night, WOW! what a find we have stayed in quite a lot of B&Bs and this one is outstanding John and Ann go that extra mile with just about everything you can think of in your room to make your stay more comfortable, even down to dressing gowns, and the really lovely breakfasts with that extra special touch, I noticed near the front door there is a tripavisor sign award of excellence,I am not surprised its well deserved, if we are ever in Matlock again we would love to stay longer at Ellen House

Have spent the last weekend at Ellen House. Anne and John are terrific hosts, breakfasts to die for and little goodies left in your room such as biscuits, flapjacks or muffins yummy!. Would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast and we have already to family and friends!!. We will hopefully be back sometime.

John and Anne were the perfect hosts, we had four great nights in their perfectly located B&B. They were so friendly and warm and went out of their way to accommodate any request. The breakfasts were the BEST we have ever had anywhere, The rooms were spotless and very tastefully decorated with lots of lovely little thoughtful touches. If anyone out there is thinking of running a B&B then if you take a leaf out of John and Anne's book then you cann't go wrong.
Looking forward to a return visit.

Quiet location, not far to walk to town centre down a hill.Spotlessly clean, with bright cheerful interesting decor. Really helpful friendly hosts. Very good breakfast--couldn't get better anywhere.
Shower a bit tricky to work at first. Comfy bed, good size wardrobe and room. Can open windows if necesssary.
Extremely good value for such high standards
Would certainly return if again visiting lovely Derbyshire.

Just had 3 fantastic nights in Ellen House. Every thing was what you would expect and more. John & Anne not only provide top class accommodation, but also produced breakfasts fit for a king, i would certainly recommend the frittata as an alternative to the usual bacon eggs etc, we will be returning as soon as possible

Room Tip: Garden room lets you enjoy the early morning birds sing

I stayed for two nights on my own wanting to do some walking. John and Anne could not have been more hopsitable and introduced me to my fellow guests at breakfast. Speaking of which the breakfast was outstanding with homemeade local conserves and a wonderful choice.

Great room well appointed with nice touches like botted water, fresh muffin and beautiful toiletries. Good position too, easy walk from Railway, but no noise. Make sure you take some time to sit in the garden and literally smell the roses.
