Great place to stay for visiting all the local attractions, just a short walk over the river Derwent into the town. The house backs on to the river and we found this was a great place to finish the day, sit in the chairs and watch the river, birds and people, so relaxing. Lovely breakfast in the morning, as much... More

Jenny and Graham saved our holiday when they took our last minute booking. Everything from the location, to the comfortable beds, to the scrumptious breakfast was perfect. You cannot go wrong with this B & B. We would come back in heart beat.

My husband and I stayed here, together with New Zealand relatives, for two nights this month.

Riverbank proved to be a very pleasant place to rest a weary head, located within easy walking distance from heart of Matlock, the park and the railway station. Our room (2) was furnished in dark wood and traditional wallpapers but these compliment the period and style of the house and everything was in good working order.The bed was very comfortable...

Lovely, friendly hosts. Very nice little guest house with a nice garden to sit in when the weather is good. Very close to the shops, main street and a pretty little park across the stream which runs at the bottom of their garden. Good breakfast and very clean rooms with comfy beds.

Beautifully clean guest house and helpful hosts. It is an attractive Victorian house set by the river. The breakfasts were very good; really good bacon and mushrooms- one little thing - the order sheets for breakfast were overly complicated.Very tranquil. Would stay again and recommend.

I know the breakfast list is long, each year we look at it and make changes. I suppose I know it so well that it looks straight forward , but we do get many different interpretation. Best thing is to talk to us. Thanks for making your comments, very helpful More

We had room 1 which was very clean and comfortable. The room overlooked the beautiful back garden which we sat in and enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine. The home cooked breakfast was excellent even though we had to place our order the previous evening and last serving was 9am.

The Riverbank Guest House is perfectly located for accessing the many picturesque areas of the Peak District. It's also well positioned to walk in to Matlock town centre and the park (which was great for our little one!) The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was really nice.
