“Would loved to have stayed longer”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Stayed for 2 nights .
Made to feel extremely welcome by John on arrival , who was a wealth of local knowledge and get some good advice on place to eat , drink and visit etc .
Room was comfortable but im fussy and the bed was a little hard for me lol . Extremely clean , light and airy , lovely to find a mini fridge with a bottle of milk , chocolate bars and bottled water .
Breakfast was lovely and basically it was a lovely place to stay and would highly recommend it .

Green Features: it had a very good eco practice in the bathroom with showers and short flush toilets etc

Stayed here for two nights on our weekend break to the Peak District. Quiet location with a short nice walk into the center of Matlock. The room was very modern and well equipped, we especially liked having a ceiling fan. The bathroom was large with a lovely walk in shower. Only thing missing in the bathroom was a stool. I like to sit down and dry my feet after a shower. It also may stop people walking into the bedroom with wet feet. Breakfast was delicious we had the full English both days. The sausage and bacon were particularly nice. Our hosts were charming and provided very useful information on places to eat. So great location, great room, great hosts. Would use again if we return to the Peak district.

We had a very pleasant one night stay in the Castle Green B&B. John was the perfect host suggesting places to visit, restaurants to try and places of interest. The room was perfect, nicely decorated and spotless. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice of juice, cereal, fresh fruit and full English. We highly recommend the Castle Green B&B. We will be returning!

We had a very nice stay at Castle Green.Great breakfast with a lot of choices. Easy distance to several great attractions like Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. Matlock har several restaurants and wtih recommendations from our host, we had some very good meals. John also recommended a very nice walk which started along the Cromford canal and took us up to the Black rock with a lovely view over Cromford and Matlock.

I visited this Bed and Breakfast with my husband and my parents in July 2014. It was a lovely house down a private road with a few other houses down the lane. it was a lovely house and the hosts Janet and John were very lovely people. My parents had the ground floor room which had a wet room in the bathroom which was perfect for them as they both walk with walking sticks so it was much easier for them. We had a room upstairs which was spotless and even had a mini fridge in the room with water and sweets in, if you had anything you just left the money on the side. the town was about Half hour walk and not many pubs down there. We chose to go to a hotel called High Tor Hotel as my sister was staying there rooms were really nice but we had a meal there and it was dreadful so don't have dinner there.

Room Tip: All rooms looked really good.
