This is a wonderfully conveniently located Guest House – especially appreciated by someone travelling by public transport – only a few minutes from train station and several good bus routes to Derby and other North Derbyshire town. Very quiet position, with a quick level walk over nearby pedestrian river bridge through Matlock's attractive town-centre park to all its main shops....

Been there only for a night's stay (unfortunately). Very lovely room, bright!, comfortable beds and amazing large shower. The breakfast was very delicious, better than most other places I've been to during my vacation. Very centrally located for either a stroll around Matlock or to Matlock Bath. Lovely owners and enjoyed talking to both of them. Will definitely return and...

Spent the weekend at this lovely guesthouse. Jenny made us feel so welcome. The bedrooms are lovely and the bed was very very comfy. Breakfast was lovely, very filling and a nice start to the day. Would recommend and will stay again when in the area :-)

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...

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. I can't recommend it highly enough; very welcoming host, lovely rooms, good sized showers and great towels, oh, and lovely breakfasts cooked by Graeme! - do try the smoked salmon. It's in a great position, at the end of a no through road and...

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...

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
