We booked last minute for a bank holiday break and were not disappointed, a lovely room overlooking the garden and very comfy bed meant we quickly re-charged those batteries. A lovely hearty breakfast, chosen the night before with a tick box form, set us up for a day's walking. Good pubs nearby and a fabulous Thai restaurant around the right corner and a great curry house to the left meant we didn't starve at night either. Would defintely recommend here for a relaxing break.

Traditional B&B. Had a great time here booked this for myself and a few guests. Rooms were nice, good location and the breakfast was a good start for the morning. Back garden was peaceful and to top it off we had good weather so no complaints. Would say again if in Matlock. Easy walk from train station.

Just had 4 nights at Riverbank Guest House in Matlock. Jennie & Graham were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Staff also friendly. Lovely breakfast. Location within walking distance to town and perfectly situated for exploring the peak district. Room very clean and comfortable. Would stay again and already recommended to a friend.

Great breakfast, lovely family and staff. Our room was a bit drafty due to fire exit not closing properly. Other than that, couldn't really fault it. A stones throw from good pubs, bars and restaurants

Thank you for your review. We are glad you appreciated our central location. We do appologise for the draft in your room, what a pity we were unaware of this problem during your stay, we would have gladly rectified this and trust it did not spoil your stay in our guest house.

We stayed with our 18 month old son for 4 nights, and definitely do not regret our choice.

Location: Excellent. Within walking distance to town and it's restaurants. We had hired a car and this was an great base for visiting Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall & Haddon Hall. There is also a large Sainsbury close by, should you need to stock up on anything.

Accommodation: We had 1 double bed and 1 single bed in our room for the 3 of us. Ensuite with a modern shower with excellent water pressure. The room and house itself was very clean and well kept.

The owners and other staff were really nice and accommodating. There was a high chair for our son at breakfast, and I believe a cot is also available (though we just used a normal bed propped with pillows). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B.

On the outskirts of the White Peak District, tucked away in a little oasis of its own sits the Riverbank Guest House... and what a delightful place it is! The location is perfect for exploring the heart of the Midlands with places like Chatsworth and Bakewell practically on the doorstep! The proprietors were extremely friendly and full of knowledge about the local area. Their restaurant recommendations were superb...'Viva' the local Italian restaurant was fantastic! Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The room was very comfortable, housing all you required for an overnight stay and the breakfast was delicious (really fresh local produce)..provided at a time that suited me! I stayed for three nights and would definitely stay there again if visting the Peak District once more.
