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.

2 night stay in a lovely location, only a few minuets walk from the station, shops and park. Room was perfect, spacious and spotless, not modern but very classic tradition. Lovely cooked breakfast with very friendly people. Would / will stay again :).

We'd arranged to stay at Riverbank Guest House at quite late notice, but from our checking-in to our reluctant departure the following day we were made to feel very welcome. The guest house is beautifully built, decorated and furnished in a lovely location. The rooms are exceptionally presented with a well-judged balance of period features with modern comforts. Service was... More

We had a group family booking here ( we had booked all the rooms out) as it was my stepbrothers wedding and it was a truly delightful stay. Graham and Jenny were so friendly and accommodating and we came away feeling like we had stayed with friends. My husband and I failed on both occasions to submit out requests for... More
