Our room was big and cosy with an enormous bed. Two windows the let light flood in and gave us fantastic views of Matlock Bath. The owners were helpful. They run the place and live there, but we were given a key to the main door so we could come and go as we pleased. It's a big hotel, so... More

Breakfast was served to us an hour early so we could get early bus and there was no issue leaving our luggage and coming back to use the facilities before departure. Great location. Large clean comfortable room. Very good choice for... More

We stayed here for three nights. Central to Matlock and short trip to Bakewell. Fantastic breakfast and nice room. The owners are wonderful - so welcoming and friendly. Breakfast is magnificent. Also offer Gluten Free options and non-caffine teas which was perfect. We had a front room but there is little noise from the busy road (we live near M4).... More

We had a lovely stay at The Temple which is right in the heart of Matlock Bath (the train station is around a 10 minute walk away, although there are some pretty steep climbs up to the accommodation, which are more than rewarded by the fantastic views). The owners were friendly and welcoming, and The Lodge itself felt peaceful and... More

Unfortunately there are a few negatives,because we booked thru... More

Hosts Chris and Mel could not have done more for our party of 10 to make our stay any better. Sadly they have had to close the bar but provided us with refreshments (Pims for the ladies and beer for the gents) to go with the picnic we had brought and enjoyed in their garden upon arrival.

I have nothing good to say about this hotel. I have just stayed in a comparable hotel in the Isle of Man for 2 nights. The price was less than half at £80 for a double with breakfast for both nights.
