“Luxury accomadation in the heart of Matlock.......truly gorgeous”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

The whole experience from booking to staying at Portland House was exceptional.
The booking process was brilliant, communication was great and lots of info and suggestions of things to do. The owners also emailed all of my party members with directions etc before our stay. The accommodation itself was luxurious, spotless, the bedrooms were gorgeous with comfy beds and the cosiest quilt I have ever slept in. The house was extremely well equipped and lacked nothing. It was also extremely spacious with plenty of room for all 20 of us. We had a catered dinner party whilst there, the dining room was a good space for us all.
Julie the owner could have done nothing more, her communication and eagerness to help was a refreshing change and greatly appreciated.

“Beautiful house, amazing countryside, fab party!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We organised our office xmas do here, it was fabulous! The owners were extremely helpful & friendly, it felt like home the minute we arrived (despite the enormous size of the place!). The kitchen & bar were beautifully clean & well equipped, in fact there was nothing else we needed. The bedrooms (virtually all en-suite) were lovely. All 19 of us were very happy
I would love to return, just need to organise a few more friends & a good excuse!

“A truly amazing hen weekend in a fabulous, beautiful house!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

I booked Portland House for my friend's period themed hen do. Portland House made such a beautiful setting for this and gave us a really magical weekend. It has been so sympathetically renovated, with a mixture of the period and the modern, that it took everyone's breath away as they had their first tour of the house. Set close to both Matlock Bath and Matlock we were able to go out of the house to visit places, but we also had everything we needed to stay within the house if we wanted to. The house was extremely well equipped and catered perfectly for the large group of us staying. We had great fun cocktail making in our very own bar, we had some lovely meals all seated in the grand dining room and had fun relaxing on the largest sofa I have ever seen in the living room. The sound system, allowing music to be played throughout the house, was brilliant and again added to the theme and atmosphere of our weekend. The booking process was excellent, we couldn't have asked anything more from Juliet and Martin. They even put up a real Christmas tree early, especially to fit our theme! The flowers and chocolates in the kitchen upon arrival were another really sweet touch too. Thank you Juliet and Martin for helping us to give Jane a truly memorable, amazing hen weekend - she loved every minute of it!

“Fantastic House for Family and Friends”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had a wonderful weekend at Portland House for a 60th birthday celebration. The house is just right for a large group of people and it has a very comfortable feel. What a shame our weekend had to end! The house is well positioned for strolling into Matlock Bath or walking further afield. A great experience and we would definitely stay at the house again in the future.

“magnificent residence, wonderful location, fabulous decor.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

A large group of us stayed at portland for a hen do- we were impressed by the property, the high standard of decor and the amenities. Juliet even left some flowers for the hen which was a really lovely touch. The bar was a brilliant party room, the beds were sooo comfy none of us wanted to get out of them. Juliet was also really helpful in providing local info that really made the weekend. I can't recommend this place or the service provided by the owners high enough.

“Great Find”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Portland house hosted my 'Gentlemans Weekend' Its a fantastic house and was a priviledge to stay in such a grand residence. Great place to spend time. Has a bar, bbq, well equiped kitchen, big lounge and lots of beds. Juliet and her partner were great and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. You will not be dissapointed!
