Stayed here one night as we were traveling through the park and this was a good choice, better value being outside the park itself yet really close. Central location so could walk to pubs and restaurants. The back room overlooked the garden/river which was lovely. Host was helpful. Excellent value for money. Easy parking.

We stayed for one night on our way to Whitby and found this B&B to be extremely pleasant. It is set on a quiet road that is only a moment away from charming shops and restaurants. The bedrooms were comfortable and the staff, thoughtful and friendly.

This large guest house has a wonderful riverside garden and is in a very convenient location. Shops, bars and restaurants are just around the corner but it is peacefully tucked away from any noise. Fabulous food and service. The hosts made us feel really welcome. Will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic short break away in the heart of Matlock. Couldn't fault anything about the accomodation and the no trouble attitude of the staff, a delightful break and wouldn't hesitate booking there again in the future if we were looking at visiting the area again x

The Riverbank Guest House is run by a welcoming local couple. It has comfortable rooms with good beds; unfortunately only showers. There is a lovely garden (unfortunately not enjoyed by us because of the cold weather); the location is perfect -- right along the Riverbank in the charming Derbyshire town of Matlock, close to the high street (for restaurants etc.)...

Chose this B&B because of the ease of booking from the USA; able to arrange everything over the Internet. The room was quiet with very comfortable beds overlooking a beautiful garden. An easy walk across the footbridge to get to the market and restaurants in town. Breakfast was wonderful and the owners were incredibly kind and helpful with advice for... More

Just returned from a weekend in Matlock, and even though I only live 2 hours drive away I have never been before. What a lovely part of the UK. Lovely B&B, we had a large room (no 10) which had a lovely view of the spacious garden, which the owners encourage you to sit out in, with the river at... More

We had a great stay at this guesthouse. The location was a good base for exploring the Peak District. Our welcome was warm and friendly and our room was very comfortable. The owners were helpful and the breakfasts were great. Would recommend to friends and family and visit again.
