“Too busy, can only do instant decaf”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a friday evening with 2 friends. Only one member of staff to do bar service everything. Waitress could not explain what some of the starters were on the menu. Not much choice on a very heavy meaty menu so had the salmon. Quite pricey. Fishcake burnt. Potatoes dry. Asked for butter. Not enough sauce with the fish. Best bit was the asparagus. Decided to go elsewhere for coffee

“Cleanest hotel we've seen in a long time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The cleanest, smartest hotel that we have visited for a long, long time - congratulations. From the reception area to the bar and restaurant to the bedroom, all warm, inviting and comfortable. Staff equally charming and helpful.
Observation 1 - Why no signs on the side of the hotel, which is difficult to find in the dark, or over the front door? You undoubtedly undersell yourself.
Observation 2 - You haven't got the food right yet - of the quite pricy evening meal, one plate (roast pork etc) had too much on it, the other (fish and chips) far too little. Might not eat there again.

Lovely food, freshly prepared, service was friendly and prompt. I certainly would recommend this restaurant as a tasteful, healthy food menu, nicely decorated venue in Matlock bath with lovely surroundings

“Fabulous Hotel Bar and Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is a real find and sits in a superb location. Its not been open that long following refurbishment and is a lovely place to stay or eat or both! A high quality establishment that has to be one of the best in the area.

“Nice afternoon tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a groupon voucher for afternoon tea with wine and were a little concerned prior to our visit after reading some of the other reviews.

There was no need to worry. The food was lovely and there was enough to fill both myself and my husband. We had a lovely view of the side of the cliff out of the window. The staff were very helpful and took us to see some of the bedrooms. They are also lovely.

All in all a nice experience and we would return.
