Riverbank Guest House
Ranked #4 of 53 Matlock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The Riverbank had a fantastic location, very handy for getting to the playground in the park in the evenings after a day out. The breakfast was very tasty, and lots of choice! The room was really clean, and although we were looking at the road, it was a really quiet road. The family room was a nice size and the beds were comfy. The Riverbank was also a very friendly place to stay. As if it needs a better recommendation than our 5 year old saying "when we come here again can we stay in this hotel?"

Many thanks for your review Tina. Our aim is to create and maintain a home from home atmosphere and we are so glad that we were successful. Our rooms overlooking the garden and river frontage are popular and the views are lovely. The many choices on our breakfast menu make for a great start to the day.

My family and I stayed at Riverbank on our England holiday in July 2013. The guest house provided every thing an Aussie family would expect on a trip to the UK - a cozy, warm friendly atmosphere where the owners made us feel welcome and looked after all of us brilliantly above and beyond our expectations, plus ensuring we were provided with the heartiest breakfast imaginable so we could take on all that was on offer in around Derbyshire. Whenever I recall my holiday my first memory always returns to my Riverbank experience and Derbyshire - by far the most beautiful place we visited.

Issues with housekeeping in several areas.Breakfast was only just acceptable even though we had to order the night before. A very average experience but hosts were friendly and informative. In need of some upgrading

What a pity you did not mention any of these issues when you checked out of our guest house. We always ask our guests whether everything was to their satisfaction as we bid them farewell. We would have happily discussed the specified matters with you at the time of your stay.

The location is excellent being only a 5 minute walk through a park to the centre of Matlock. The room was comfortable and well furnished.
On a sunny day as we had the large garden with river frontage is pleasant to spend time in.
The breakfast choice was very good and the quality excellent. The owner was very welcoming and friendly.

We stayed at this wonderful Guest House for three nights as part of a group of 24 walkers. The House, which is full of character is in a perfect location in a quiet cul de sac, close to the centre of Matlock and we all appreciated the beautiful large garden backing onto the river. The owners Jennie and Graham could not have been more helpful. Each morning, with the help of Denise & Shelley, we were served a very tasty breakfast, with lots of choices. The service was very efficient, friendly and everyone's needs were very well catered for. I would definitely recommend Riverbank Guest House as a perfect location to explore this beautiful part of Derbyshire.
