Reviews from our guests

review rating 5  It is most definitely a 'five' star rating from me. The beds are amazingly comfortable. You feel like you are sleeping on a cloud, that was my first reaction when we first visited a few years ago! The breakfasts are amazing. Absolutely finest B&B I've ever stayed in.

review rating 5  This is the most beautiful B&B we have ever stayed in. From arrival to departure we loved our stay. The rooms are immaculate and have lots of lovely features - the shower room had Elemis Products to use and the bed was big and very comfy. There was also a fridge in the room with fresh milk for the tea and coffee provided and where you could buy additional snacks if you wanted. The Lemon drizzle cake in the room on arrival was delicious and a lovely welcoming touch. The Owners were nothing but amazing - so hospitable. There was so much choice for Breakfast and was the best eggs royale I have ever eaten. My partner and I got engaged during our stay and on departure Damien presented us with a card and a bottle of Prosecco, absolutely lovely and left us smiling all the way back to Birmingham - Thank you so much. If we came back to Matlock we would not want to stay anywhere else and I will be recommending this place to everyone I know. Thank you for such a lovely stay xxx
