Reviewed 10 February 2012

My colleagues and I stayed here this week on a business trip. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful proprietors, Graham and Jennie - down to building us a lovely coal fire in the lounge and providing refreshments. The accommodation is lovely and in a fantastic location. it is a long time since I was made so welcome, and felt immediately at home. I would recommend it to anyone.

Shelly was responsible for your lovely breakfast and she thanks you for your comments. Our 'meat' menu is from Coates, our local butchery, and Nick, carves the bacon from the joint, and, makes his own sauages. I'd like to say the salmon and kippers were from the Derwent ...sadly, only trout swims past the Riverbank.

What can you say about a place that has everything. Service great, Bedroom even better,
Views from room wonderful, Breakfast what would you expect fabulous, We went for walks we did not want to stop, The town is next to the park and the park is next to the Riverbank guest house, set on the bank of the peaceful river Derwent, Pubs and restaurants are all near by,
Our hosts Graham and Jenny could not have been more helpfully.
So there is no more to say but thanks for a wonderful three day stay. XXXXX

Room Tip: Over look the garden.

We were on our way up to Scotland, we decided to stop half way,
We were recommended to stay in Matlock because of all to beautiful scenery and wonderful walks.
We were not disappointed, the peek district is spectacular.
Riverside Guest house is certainly one, if not the best B/B one could stay in.
The staff were all so helpful and friendly, the rooms were attractive and spotlessly clean.
We had our evening aperitif in there stunning garden overlooking the river.
Definatley worth another visit

After nearly a week of weak streamed showers Reiverbanks was big with good pressure and not timed. The rooms are good sized and beautifully decorated, as the host prefer you not to eat meals in the rooms the dining room is well appointed and avbailable for eating in. Location it is in a great position on the river and near the facilites of gorgoeus Matlock. I intend to stay in the Peaks again and would very happily stay here again.

Just spent two nights at Riverbank - our annual visit, whilst working at the Victorian Christmas weekend in Hall Leys Park. Graham and Jenny always make us feel very welcome and are very friendly hosts. Being able to park on site is also great.
Lovely room, with a great view over the garden, although we did find it a bit chilly, especially on the first evening.
The Full English breakfast is lovely and keeps us going through the working day.
Riverbank is very convenient for places to eat in the evening and there are lots of great places.
Thanks for a great stay and we hope to return in 2012

Room Tip: Room 7 overlooks the garden.
