“White Peak Marathon weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

Brilliant accommodation in a brilliant town. Janet and John very welcoming to their beautiful house.
We stayed in the Premier room with a new wet room and felt we were in a six star hotel in Abu Dhabi or somewhere similar...weather to match! Breakfast was fantastic, great fuel for the marathon. Walk 5 minutes to the Red Lion where they serve Hobgoblin...heaven!
All in all, we cannot imagine a better mixture, would thoroughly recommend to any one visiting Derbyshire.
If there was a swimming pool that would no doubt have got 5 stars too!!!

Room Tip: If possible go for the Premier room...fantastic!!!

We stayed over Easter. Janet & John could not have been more welcoming and friendly. They are very knowledgeable about the local area and can recommend some great places to eat and drink, for all tastes.(take a walk down the hill to the Red Lion, Real Ale and great food) Breakfast is excellent and the rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. A small accident (my wife broke it!!!!!!) with the shower fitting was fixed quickly and without fuss

In conclusion we have stayed in many B&B's and Guest Houses, most excellent but this place has that little extra. Will certainly make this our first choice for visits to the Peak District.

Great stay at Castle Green. Janet and John are lovely hosts, and gave us lots of advice and suggestions about where to walk and how to get to places (especially useful as this was our first time in Matlock).
The rooms are very nice and the B&B is also in a perfect location - a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside yet still just a short walk from the town centre. I would definitely stay here again if returning to the area.

We stayed at Castle Green B&B over the May Bank Holiday weekend. It was outstanding. The breakfast was superb with great choice and individual, friendly attention. The hosts, Janet and John, were so friendly, helpful and welcoming. We had a wonderfully comfortable room, first class on cleanliness and comfort. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Great, comfortable bed. Amazing bathroom. Convenient for exploring Derbyshire and close to many attractions and lovely pubs. Just could not fault anything. Highly recommend this B&B and we are definitely very choosy. Thank you, Janet and John, for a superb stay at your home. Will definitely stay with you again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 6 on the ground floor.

I travel several times a year around England. And often stay in a B&B then. I stayed also in November 2013 in the B&B hosted by Janet and John. They are very kind and helpful. And can tell you a lot about places to go. The GREAT! English breakfast give you a very good start of the day and John or Janet always aks how your day was and what you are up to.
A GREAT PLACE TO STAY.

Room Tip: Room nr. 4 is perfect

Hi,
We have just come back from an amazing weekend in Matlock. We booked Castle Green B&B as it had great reviews and here I am giving another one. :)
The B&B is located very conveniently close to everything that matters, walking distant even from the cable cars (although that is a 35 min walk).
We utterly enjoyed every minute of our stay here.
Bedroom big enough, en suite bathroom clean and spacious and view from our room was amazing. I actually said I wanted to live there. The house and the room felt really homely and very comfortable.
I am very fussy about beds as I am 6 months pregnant and I can not sleep on every bed but this was super comfy!! I had the best night sleep for weeks!
The breakfast was superb. Good quality and tasty.
Our hosts were kind and cheerful and gave us loads of tips about where to go, what to see, where to eat etc.
We went to visit The Heights of Abraham using the cable car. Absolutely loved it and would recommend it to everyone.
All in all one of the best weekend breaks ever.
Just book this B&B, you definitely will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Our room was number 2, lovely view.
