“Lovely!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely stay here, only one night but it was short and sweet. Perfect location, rooms clean with everything you could need. We were offered a pot of tea with biscuits on arrival. Plenty of complimentary tea, coffee biscuits in your room too. Great hosts friendly and helpful. Breakfast was perfect. Must go back and stay longer. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Cannot recommend The Gables highly enough! Once you have overcome the steep & winding road, the welcome you receive is second to none. Due to our mobility issues, John ran us down to the local pub for dinner, and then picked us back up again. Sue has created delightful rooms and both cook up an amazing breakfast. Would definitely stay there again, nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: 3 rooms in a row, all good, 1 double, 1 twin, 1 deluxe

We really enjoyed our 2 nights here at The Gables in Matlock. The owners were very warm and friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. It is up a steep hill, but it is above the town and therefore very quiet. Views are great! The room was well appointed and had a very modern bathroom. Lots of nice finishing touches made it quite homely. Highly recommended.

Excellent Bed & Breakfast with a warm, friendly welcome for Aus visitors. Great views and a great bedroom. The ensuite bathroom is huge and very nicely done. Having coffee, tea and cakes on the veranda with great views and a friendly chat with other guests from the US was a big plus.

Unfortunately was unable to stay after booking, as did not realise how steep road was until arrived, my and my sisters poor knees were not up to the climb. Host did offer to run my sister up and down into town, but did not want to be reliant on hotel owner. Expensive error

Sadly we spent just one day at The Gables, but we definitely want to come back! Great views and only a short walk from a cosy pub, what more could you want? Plenty of fresh air and peace and quiet. We didn't even notice the rain :-) Add to that free wifi, tv and friendly hosts that were actually real people... I didn't think places like this existed anymore!

The beds were excellent, the english breakfast was out of this world...

If you want to experience 5 star luxery, then it is waiting for you at The Gables B & B. Sue & John have only been the propieters for two years, but in that short time they have created the perfect haven for a holiday in Derbyshire. Firstly they are wonderful hosts where nothing is too much trouble & the tea & cakes at 4pm each day taken on the outside veranda, overlooking the Darbyshire hills is something not to be missed & is a wonderful addition to their hospitality.
The rooms are very smart & spotlessly clean, fluffy duvet & pillows & comfy bed. Even careful thought has been given to the smallest of details, cotton wool, tissues & toiletries in the bathroom.The breakfast is of the very best with every combination available & lots of it.
.This has to be the very best Derbyshire has to offer & we will return in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: We had the Derwent room with the two twins joined together which made a faboulous King size bed.
