We recently spent two nights with Ann and John, what lovely hosts, nothing was too much trouble, they were friendly and informative. We were on a short walking break, this B&B is in the perfect location for the Limestone Way, Riber Castle and plenty of surrounding attractions. The room was very comfortable and welcoming, the breakfasts were outstanding - you...

Thank you for posting this review, we really appreciate the feedback from guests. We have a varied breakfast menu and it is great to know that you enjoyed our South African breakfast. It is different from the normal full English but nevertheless delicious - as you pointed out in your review! We are indeed surrounded by great walking opportunities; the...

We stayed for two nights at Ellen House and could not have wished for a more pleasant stay. Ann and John are friendly, interesting hosts who provide an efficient but personal bed and breakfast. The rooms are well equipped with toiletries, beverages and, when we stayed, delicious flapjack! Breakfast was a delight with fresh fruit, choice of breakfasts and lovely...

Thank you for this very complimentary review. So glad you enjoyed our breakfast, we take great care to offer a breakfast cooked to order and our fruit platter is always a winner as well. We are fortunate that my sister continues to make our jams and marmalades; she has recently been awarded another bronze award for her Seville orange marmalade!...

We stayed in the King Garden Room for three nights. We found that Matlock was a great base for visiting Chatsworth House, walking in the Peak District National Park and exploring Derbyshire more generally. Ellen House is a terrific B and B. Well located in terms of shops and restaurants but in a very quiet no through road, it provides...

Thank you, what a lovely review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, as you pointed out this is a beautiful area and the Peak District has actually been declared an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You are quite right, there are no bright city lights in our little street, just owls hooting! . Thank you...

Very clean and comfortable B&B in excellent situation in Matlock. Stayed in the Garden Room with doors onto the garden. Lovely tea tray with home-made flapjack. Breakfast was outstanding, including fresh fruit, yogurt, home-made jams and 'specials'. Catered for gluten-free diet. Hosts welcoming and attentive. Can't recommend highly enough.

A very complimentary review, thank you. We do prepare our breakfast with great care and it is good to know that our selection of fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and home made jams are appreciated. And of course the full breakfast cooked by John! My sister (my jam maker) has just added another award to her existing awards, a bronze for...

My wife and I stayed here due to its TA rating and location to the shops, bars and restaurants, what a great choice it turned out to be!! Our hosts were very friendly and genuinely nice people.

Ellen house is situated just off the main road through Matlock on a `dead end` road so no through traffic. A good quiet location with on street parking but there is a bit of an uphill to consider.

We had a very pleasant stay at Ellen House. All B&B's should be to this high standard. My wife managed to leave a necklace and dress in the room, but the thought and care shown while we stayed there was extended to when we had left, as Anne kindly rang to let us know.

Cannot fault this place. We had a great stay and couldn't have been more comfortable. Our hosts were accommodating with my wife's vegetarian menu requirements and always had a smile on their face. I genuinely have never stayed in a better B&B. Will visit again. 10/1

This was our fourth stay at Ellen House and it certainly won't be our last. Fantastic location within a few minutes walk of the town centre but so quiet and peaceful. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and a superb breakfast. We brought some friends with us this time who were also very impressed. Thanks Anne and John, see you again soon.
