Had a fantastic stay at this guesthouse, having never stayed here before we weren't sure what to expect but upon arrival we were made to feel like one of the family. The rooms are finished to the highest standard and Janet and John were so friendly we are already planning our next visit back! We felt like we could just relax and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and amazing breakfast.

I would recommend a stay here to anyone!

Room Tip: Family room is great value for money

We stayed for a few nights with our one year old son in a very practical double room with adjoining smaller single room where we had the cot set up. It meant we didn't have to tiptoe around the room whilst he slept. The rooms were very comfortable and newly refurbished to a very high standard. Janet and John are a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and were so helpful with recommending places to go and places to shop (much to my husband's dismay!). It really was like home from home we felt so comfortable there. We had such a lovely stay we would venture back up to Matlock just to stay at Castle Green again!

stayed Friday to Monday Janet and John were excellent hosts with advise on what to see and where to visit.The room was first class very comfortable with en suite man sized shower The breakfast set us up for the day with fresh fruit salad choice of cereals and full English with plenty of tea and toast all freshly served by John who made sure everything was cooked to our specific requirements we can be a bit fussy. We visited Matlock Bath for the illuminations and fireworks. Had a day out at Chatsworth House and Bakewell, look out for the lavender tea rooms lovely afternoon tea. We had a great Italian meal at a restaurant recommended by John who made the booking for us and then kindly gave us a lift . Overall a brilliant week end break we will definitely staying at Castlegreen again .

We stayed for 3 nights but wished it could have been more. Janet and John greeted us like friends and treated us like family whilst we were there. The room was scrupulously clean and very comfortable ( my wife is now asking me to fit a shower at home like the one we had there). Breakfast was lovely with good quality food well cooked. There is a great garden area you can sit out in at night and relax with a few (or more) glasses of wine. Best of all was the hosts, i can honestly say they are a fantastic couple who are obviously determined to make sure their guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay and they don't disappoint. With so many things to see and do in the area we will definitely be going back and will not even bother looking at other places to stay as we enjoyed it there so much we wil just be ringing Janet and John to book in at Castle Green.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, we stayed in room 1 which has great views.

The family room was great for us and our 6 year old - the rooms were smart and comfy and clean. More importantly the welcome was very friendly - we were even given a lift to the local pub! John and Janet were really lovely, sharing info about the area, and if we stop over Matlock again we'll definitely be booking here again. Great guest house.
