“The best hotel in Derbyshire !!!”
Reviewed 10 October 2010

What a fantastic stay! We found this purely "by chance" as the hotel that we normally stay at whenever we visit this area (in Cromford) was fully booked but the manager phoned "The Temple" & they had just the one room available for a couple of nights. The hotel is off the main road so you wouldn't find it unless you were directed to it but it's only a 5 minute walk down some steps into Matlock Bath. Our "spotlessly clean" and very spacious room had a superb view which overlooked the town of Matlock Bath. The staff were all very helpful & friendly, the cooked breakfast was a culinary delight with multiple choices of mainly local produce and the hotel manager Chris was so helpful & knowledgeable when I enquired about local history and places to visit. There is plenty of free parking available at both the front and side of the hotel aswell. We found this one of the most hospitable and clean hotels that we've ever had the pleasure to stay at in this country and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone.

My wife and I found the rather small room comfortable and clean. The toiletries and towels were luxurious. What really stood out though was the view from the bedroom, along the river valley and on to the opposite hillside with grazing sheep and horses - stunning! Admittedly it cost more than the standard rooms but well worth the extra. Breakfast was very good.

my husband and I stayed for one night we had a superior room which was lovely, the bed was extremely comfortable, with faboulous views over the valley. We did not stay for dinner but went to the very friendly bar later on for a drink. The freshly cooked full english breakfast was perfect. The location is good with plenty of parking, and the owner made us feel really welcome, have stayed in other hotels in Matlock Bath and this is the best yet.

Had a nice 1 night stay at The Temple. This place must be heaven for real ale drinkers!
The rooms were clean & a good size and the views were excellent.
Polite & helpful staff made the stay a pleasure.
The breakfast was great and cooked to order.
No, it isn't a trendy, chic boutique hotel but its a proper quirky hotel with lots of charm & character.

great location and views; great selection of local beers; very comfortably appointed rooms at very reasonable prices; great tasting breakfast with locally sourced quality food; lovely people running and working at the hotel; plenty of parking; lovely spacious feel to the hotel; "panorama" restaurant is just that; all in all - probably the best pub/hotel that The Curry Club has stayed in in the past 6 years - so we will be back!

We had one night at the Temple Hotel. The food was good, and the staff were friendly. The room was small but OK, bathroom dated. The entrance foyer is very tired and the state of the gents cloakrooms in the bar are truly disgusting.
