The breakfast was gourmet & plentiful, with enough choice to suit all culinary tastes. The hosts were very... More

Had a lovely stay when we went to the tramway museum. Welcoming hosts and a brilliant breakfast. We'll be back. Only drawback is the lack of guaranteed parking, but we managed to park 50 metres away so no problem.

I think this is about our 7th or 8th stay, as usual it was faultless. The B&B is spotless, fantastic breakfast and excellent hospitality. Anne's recommendation for the Cool River bistro was well worth it. We loved our toast lady at breakfast, a true professional! Hopefully see you in February

The owners, Anne and John, made us feel so very welcome right from the start. This is just how a B&B should be. Comfy bed with two thick pillows and loads of cushions. Lots of nice extras like chocolates (each day) and delicious homemade flapjacks in the room with tea and ground coffee with a cafetiere. The breakfast is amazing... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Ellen House in Matlock. Absolutely charming hosts with many interesting stories. The breakfasts were wonderful with a huge amount of choice. Excellently presented and cooked. Great location for the town and further afield. Good for walking and plenty of restaurants nearby. Would love to go back.

We were offered a very warm welcome. The accommodation was perfect with lots of extra touches like delicious homemade flapjack. All rooms were beautifully presented. We stayed in the garden room which had a lovely outlook onto a very pretty terraced garden with direct access. The views from the gazebo at the top are stunning. Breakfast was superb, beautifully cooked.... More
