“Perfect place for a gathering”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Portland House for a family gathering of 19 people for a combined birthday celebrations, ages ranging from a couple of months to mid 60's and it was perfect! Juliet and Martin helped guide us through what was available to us, both in terms of what we could arrange at the house, right through to what we could do while we stayed there, they went over and above to assist us in any way they could, including some odd requests. On arrival, everything was exactly as described. As a large group of multiple families we could either remain together as one big group, or split and do various things. The Bar Billiards in the Bar Room was a real success, along with the enclosed Front Garden for a delightful BBQ. All rooms were well appointed and most had en-suite facilities, while the lounge (with the remarkedly long sofa) accommodated us all for games in the evening. The kitchen has all that is required to cater for yourselves in comfort, or the space for others to come in and cater for you, whatever you prefer. All this you get in the delightful town of Matlock Bath, with great walks in the area, visits to to Aquarium or the Mining Museum and then Gullivers Kingdom for younger visitors, all on your door step. Thanks go to Juliet and Martin, and will definitely visit again.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The house was beautiful, all of a very high standard and very clean. There is more than enough room for 24 people, very comfortable. The location is in a perfect place, close enough to walk into Matlock Bath.

Juliet who owns the house was very helpful with any queries and organising activities. Great help!!

“What a fantastic place!”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed as a group of fourteen for a hen weekend over the Easter bank holiday and what a fantastic time we had! I honestly don't think I could have had a better weekend. From the lovely surprise of a bunch of flowers and chocolates that Juliet kindly arranged, to the amazing house itself, to the friendly local town, we really had a blast. The suggestiosn we received for local things to see and do, where to eat, etc. were spot on. I couldn't recommend Portland House more highly! Thank you Juliet and Martin!

“Hen party”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a joint hen party here and was simply sublime. Worth every penny. The house has every possible thing you could need. Location is great. The house bar was fabulous. Really could not find a fault. Juliet was very nice over email and gave great ideas of things to do. Highly recommended.

We stayed here in January and it was fabulous! The house is so luxurious and certainly one of the best nights sleep I have had in a long time!
