Nikki and Stuart made our stay at Riber Hall. Nikki welcomed us, served us in the bar and restaurant and generally ran the place. Stuart is an excellent chef! However, they could really have done with more staff to help as with Stuart in the kitchen and guests in both the lounge and restaurant, poor Nikki was left to run...

We used this hotel as our base for a few days' sightseeing. It's a hidden gem; really quiet with old-world charm and atmosphere. The owner-managers were most professional and really welcoming, with the food being first rate. The rooms are very quaint, with antique furnishings and 4-poster beds; our one criticism would have to be that there are a few...

Great place & food but the bar prices would not be out of place at the Savoy in London. Also so little choice. When asked why they had no draught ales the excuse was that they did not have a cellar - what was that down the steps of the door to the left just before you enter the "bar"?...

We have just returned from 2 nights at Riber Hall Hotel. The hotel is a fabulous 'olde worlde' place and the furniture is authentic to the hotel. It is a little bit like stepping back in time, which is great and adds to the ambience. The history of the hotel is really interesting and if you ask, Stuart 'knows his...

Reading other reviews we were a bit nervous after booking our room, it was all unfounded. We arrived at a beautiful and ancient building with lots and lots of character. Our room, complete with four poster bed and large bathroom was filled with antiques (except for the flatscreen TV) and had a lovely view. The gardens are spectacular. Food was...

We really enjoyed our stay. The managers were really friendly and helpful, gave good service and were very accomodating of the dog we brought. The food was lovely, good quality ingredients well cooked by Stuart but still overpriced I thought. The buildings and gardens were gorgous, the hall is high up above matlock with lovely views. The decor and look...

Under new management but you feel like the manageress wishes she was somewhere else , The Hotel is in lovely buildings but they need updating . The food was nice but very overpriced and so were the drinks .
