Reviewed May 12, 2013

Excellent breakfast , can't be faulted , the only thing that annoyed me was the draft coming through the door that people kept leaving wide open, after getting up twice to shut it , gave up, having said that it wouldn't put us off returning

We stayed a week in jan 2013 in the newly opened 1st floor self catering apartment in a stone building at the rear of the Tea rooms. (B & B is also available in the main building). We were the 1st people in the recently opened apartment. This apartment is beautifully furnished and decorated and it appears no expense has been spared in making this cottage/apartment functional, comfortable and an interior decorating 'tour-de-force' By functional I mean no fluffy shag-pile carpets but beautiful easy clean hard floors and leather sofas etc. Ann (who runs the tea rooms) and her partner Ade were efficient, welcoming and very friendly. A big bonus is being able to 'nip' next door to said Tea rooms for a coffee and/or 'cake fix' or treat yourself to a cooked breakfast and avoid the washing up. Do you get the impression we were most impressed ? Thanks Ann & Ade, hope to see you again.

Room Tip: Be aware if you have mobility problems access to the apartment is via a flight of steep stone steps...

We called just for a warm drink ,but were tempted into some of the fantastic cakes on offer , the tea to our suprise is loose leaf, which shows they want to make an impression ,in the days of the modern caf'e food and drinks generally are seved to you with a take it or leave attitude , but at the Fountain everything is delivered by two young girls with a smile and very polite conversation ,which again shows they want to impress, I have to say they really did ,which is why we WILL RETURN

We stayed at the Fountain Inn for one night on an impulse after visiting The Barley Mow pub up the road and deciding (with help from the very friendly landlady!), that it would be a good idea to see the live music at The Barley Mow Cop after we had visited the illuminations in Matlock Bath. We didn't regret it and really enoyed the pub, illuminations, live music (a regular event) and particularly the room and it's stylish decor, lovely spacious bathrppm, ultra comfortable bed then a hearty breakfast served early especially for us as we had to leave early.

We have been to the fountain on several occasions, mostly when we on holiday a couple of miles away. We went every morning for breakfast and it didn't dissapoint on any level. Following a recent total refurbishment the quality finish and decor is outstanding throughout the building. We didn't stay over, but having seen the bedrooms and the bathroom we are intending to stop over very soon and also sample the breakfast again. We also recently made a 60 mile round trip just to try the sandwiches, panini's and freshly made desserts....all very fresh and completely worth the trip. No evening meals, but we were told that this may change in the future, so we'll be keeping our eyes open in case it does

Room Tip: There is a double room and another with 2 single beds, both high spec.
