Arrived on a Sunday when Matlock Bath is very busy with day trippers including many bikers (enthusiasts, not the Hells Angels variety). On entering the hotel,experienced tranquility as we stepped back in time with the decor of a bygone age. We were shown to our bedroom on the second floor and which overlooked the River Derwent on the other side of the road. Our chosen package was dinner, bed and breakfast. The food was excellent with a reasonable selection of courses to choose from. As we had our dog with us, we were given a key for the hotel front door so that if we needed to walk the dog after 11 pm or early in the morning, we could let ourselves out and back in. Not everyone might like the decor, the lack of a lift, being virtually adjacent to the main road (A6) and the car park being about 70 yards up a steep hill. However we were very pleased at having selected this hotel. So many modern hotels have that sameness about them no matter where they are and Hodgkinson's was indeed a very welcome change. We would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel in the future.
