Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for a couple of nights for a walking holiday. Ziz was so lovely and very knowledgeable about local walks and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and vegetarian well catered for. The room had everything we needed and was very quiet for an undisturbed sleep. Great location, less than 10 mins walk into the center of Matlock for meals/drinks in the evening. We also got discount through Ziz at two local restaurants which was an added bonus. Would recommend

Thanks Ziz for a fabulous stay at the Sheriff Lodge! Lovely spacious, comfortable, well appointed room. Super comfortable bed - just what you need after a hard days hiking. Amazing delicious breakfasts and thanks for accomodating our dietary requirements (vegan). Ziz is a superb, welcoming host and we thank you for working your magic to get us a reservation at top class local restaurant that was officially fully booked!. Location is spot on...easy 5-10 minute walk to the town. And a great location to start a hike with out having to to drive anywhere. Highly recommended. We will be back!

Thank you so much Andrew. It was great to have you both to stay and I’m glad everything was as expected. No problem re the vegan diet it’s becoming more common now and as hosts I believe we should be providing all dietary needs. I’m also delighted you enjoyed Stones. I’m looking forward to seeing you both again very soon. Best regards Ziz

From the very first welcome to the ease of check out this 2 night stay was everything I could have wanted and more. I was welcomed at the door by the very warm and friendly owner Ziz , whilst helping with my bags she showed me to my lovely room (The Dray ) the bed was huge,comfortable and was dressed in luxury bedding. The full en-suite bathroom was very clean and had quality toiletries and big fluffy towels. Ziz has gone to great lengths to provide everything one could possibly need for a cosy home from home stay Nothing feels too much trouble . I ordered the Chatsworth platter for my supper on the first night of arrival and the afternoon tea on my second day. Both were presented beautifully and tasted amazing. The breakfast both mornings were top quality, made to order and very tasty. As a female solo guest i felt safe and comfortable at all times and would not hesitate to recommend this top quality friendly B&B to anyone. Many thanks Ziz , looking forward to visiting again sometime.

An amazing find! Ziz is the perfect host and everything was perfect. The room was very comfortable, nice and warm with extra heating if necessary. There is everything in the room that one would need. The towels are large and fluffy the bedlinen crisp and white and we had such a good night's sleep. The decor throughout is lovely and all very well kept and lovely and clean. The breakfast choice was amazing and the food was all locally sourced, such a good breakfast Ziz! We stayed for a treat for my husband's birthday and for an extra treat we had the beautiful afternoon tea, all homemade by Ziz, beautiful choices on there! Ziz is the perfect host in a very elegant home, it was a pleasure to meet Sukura the beautiful boxer puppy and looking forward to see how she's grown when we visit again. Thank you Ziz and Sukura for a very pleasant stay.

Another fabulous stay! I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve visited Sheriff Lodge. We keep returning because it’s simply the best B&B we’ve ever visited, and Ziz is a wonderful host! This time we tried Ziz’s Chatsworhh platter and it was absolutely delicious! With home made bread and chutney too, it was everything we hoped for. Her breakfasts were also of the usual very high standard. Ziz sources high quality ingredients and cooks them to perfection. Her breakfasts are second to none! Ziz had also refurbished our favourite room for this stay. It certainly didn’t need refurbishing, but looked beautiful and was as comfortable as ever, and her usual thoughtful extra touches were greatly appreciated. We’ve already booked our next stay and highly recommend both Ziz and Sheriff Lodge!

Had an amazing 4 night getaway for our anniversary and we’re so glad we chose Sheriffs Lodge. Ziz was such a wonderful host, very friendly and so helpful in every way. We stayed in the nest, which has very tasteful decor, much to myself and my wife’s taste. Ziz kindly arranged flowers for my wife which she absolutely loved. Breakfast is fantastic and I’m now a total convert to eggs Benedict, delicious. Definitely be booking again in the near future. Thank you Ziz for a wonderful stay

We chose Sheriff Lodge in Matlock so that we could tour the local attractions. The website impressed us and we were not disappointed when we arrived. Level, private and adequate parking was appreciated. The Lodge is so nice and a short downhill walk into town. If you enjoy a sumptuous breakfast, this place is for you. The 'Mousehole' bedroom on the 1st floor was lovely with quality bathroom products. The attractions of the area; Cromford Mills and village, Crich Tramway Village, Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are all easily reached. if you enjoy steam railway the Peak Valley terminates in Matlock.
