“Wonderful, comfortable weekend away”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We parked in the car park and was cheerfully welcomed at the door by Adrian, who showed us to our beautiful, comfortable warm and immaculately clean room. The hosts had decorated the home for Christmas so nicely, the Christmas tree in the breakfast room was so pretty, and the subtle trimmings in the guest lounge, just very sophisticated. ( the lounge is very comfortable and just very very nice). From first arriving at Glendon we instantly knew we were in for a treat and we were not disappointed at all. We loved every minute!!! We have stayed as a larger group before in their self catering property Derwent House and that was amazing so we knew we would be in safe hands again!!! ...and well just brilliant again!!!
Our room was the four poster room which included a fridge full of goodies and even fresh milk for our drinks. A spacious bathroom and gorgeous views outside and up to the church. We were offered hot drinks and a slice of delicious home baked cake. This started our weekend off a treat.
We did choose this weekend specifically as it was the Matlock Xmas Fair and we wished to get into the Christmas spirit, we were joined by friends who also stayed in the guest house and as soon as we arrived at Glendon it felt very festive like Christmas should feel. Friends together for a enjoyable weekend away.
We really do like Matlock and the surrounding areas and it was just so nice to visit it at Christmas time, all trimmed up and the atmosphere was just very relaxed and happy.
The room was very comfortable, our bed was a delight. So much so we both slept late we were obviously very relaxed. We showered under hot strong showers, and dressed for breakfast. And what a treat that was too, we met Damien who was very attentive and personable. And the breakfast was served beautifully, just so gorgeous even the porridge arrived with a twist not going to spoil it for you if you decide to stay and you should but lets just say the porridge was divine, then I followed that with a full English. I was set for the day.
Glendon has it all and the hosts are so friendly and they have got it just right, they are doing a wonderful job, just keep doing what you are doing!!!.
We will be back and all I can say is thank you for making our weekend away with friends such a happy memorable one. So looking forward to our next time with you in March as its my parents 50th wedding anniversary and we are having a family weekend in Glendon, just can't wait. Thank you , and any one reading this looking to book all I can say is do it you will not be disappointed at all in fact you will return !!!!

We are really pleased your party all enjoyed thier stay. We are particularly aware that when you make a booking on behalf of others you feel a sense of responsiblity for wanting everytihng to be 'just so'. It is great to know that everyone in your party felt Glendon was welcoming, comfortable, relaxing and provided a good base for the area. We look forward to welcoming you back next year for your family celebration.

We are reluctant to tell everyone what a fabulous job Adrian and Damien have done with Glendon Guest House. You will all want to go and we won't be able to get a room! These two clever guys could show the hotel industry a thing or two. The rooms are stunning, linen and beds top quality, service faultless and breakfast one of the best selections we have enjoyed anywhere. Our family were comfortably housed next door at Derwent House and here too everything you could want is at hand and our birthday weekend celebrations was a great success and everyone agreed that Adrian and Damien had made it quite perfect for us. good luck for the future. Elise and John

I arrived late evening from the train station and was met by one of the proprietors in the park near Glendon Guest House as it was dark and I was unsure where to go.
Uon arrival i was shown the most beautifully decorated room with a four poster bed and modern bathroom. Outside the room was a vase with fresh long stemmed roses. Tere was chandeliers in the ceiling and beatiful coving. The four poster bed was beatiful with a large duvet. I was offered a cup of tea and gorgeous biscuits in the nearby lounge which had chesterfield leather sofas.
Myroom was opposite a small stream and church. Itwas a quiet little road. The housewas built mid 19th century with large sash windows. the following morning i had breakfast in a beatifully decorated room with a large christmas tree. the menu was superb with fresh strawberries and blueberries. i had smoked salmon and scrambled egg. the service could not have been better and i hope Glendon Guest House will be there for many years as i will try to come back again.

This guest house provides excellent value for money and a friendly atmosphere. They provided a pot of coffee anda slice of cake on arrival, as well as tea making fcilities and biscuits in the room. The room was very comfortable. The location very near to the centre of Matlock. There was a very good selection at breakfast. The owners gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend this to anyone.

This is my first review on Trip Advisor but after staying at Glendon House I felt that I had to let other people know what a fantastic place this is. We were greeted with tea and delicious cake in the lovely guest lounge. Our room was spotless with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was spacious with lots of hot water. Breakfast was served in another beautiful room and you could not get a better breakfast in a 1st class hotel. I just wish that we had been staying for longer than one night but we will certainly make a return visit.

I have never written a review on TripAdvisor but after our experience at Glendon House I felt that I owed it to Adrian and Damien to write a review. After a last minute decision to go to the Peak District on a Saturday and ringing around 15 B&Bs, all who were fully booked, we were going to give up. We then came across Glendon House which did have a room available and quickly set off for the Peaks. We were so pleased that none of the other B&Bs had any rooms as we were shocked with how stunning the house was not to mention the helpfulness and welcoming we received by Adrian and Damien. They kindly booked us a table at the local Thai (superb) and advised us on what we should do the following day in the District. The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was above our expectations with a lovely selection on offer. Thank you for everything! Erik & Nichola

Just spent 2 lovely nights at glendon with my partner and our 5 month old baby. We stayed in the family room and it was beautiful. The owners greeted us to a warm welcome with tea and cake. The breakfast was perfect we can recommend the eggs benedict. The owners were very hospitable throughout and we would love to stay here again. We loved the decor of the house and our view of the church was magic. X
