“Perfect Venue for Hen Weekend”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I booked Portland House for my sisters hen weekend in March 2016. With 21 hens to accomodate I had to find somehwere that would suit the mixture of ages in the group - Portland House did just that!
Great sized bedrooms, the majority were ensuite which limited the number of guests waiting to use the shower. The living room, dining room and bar area were spot on and worked perfectly for the weekend.
The kitchen was fully equiped and catered for our every need.
What can I say an absolute gem of house and everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Thank you Portland House x x

“Great stay for my sisters 30th”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We had a great stay at Portland house, Juliet was really helpful with everything! We stayed for 2 nights with 24 women and every single person had an amazing weekend. We hired the bar tender for cocktail making which id highly recommend and was good fun! Would definitely recommend for a weekend with friends or family. Be aware two rooms do not have an ensuite, but this really doesn't cause any problems due to the amazing bathroom on the second floor!!! Thanks for everything Juliet, it was one to remember!

“Wonderful house to celebrate with friends and family!”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We celebrated my husbands 50th Birthday at Portland House. From our first enquiry to our departure, Juliet and Martin were wonderful. The house accommodated us very well. A group of people ranging in age from 5-55!! The decor, furnishings etc are such high quality. All fixtures and fittings are of the highest order. I would highly recommend for a similar celebration.

“Mr”
Reviewed 13 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We hired Portland House for my wife's 30th and it was the perfect venue. The house is stunning and ideal for a large gathering. We had a black tie dinner party with 24 people on the Saturday evening in the dinning room followed by a party in the bar. Juliet the owner recommend caterers and a bar tender and both were fantastic. This place is awesome and you will struggle to find a better place. Highly recommended!

“Great venue for a Hen Party”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Have just held my daughters Hen Party over the weekend. We had a great time in this comfortable and spacious venue. Plenty of parking for our 24 guests which made unloading the vast quantity of food and drink we took very easy! Fantastically equipped for large parties. Every single piece of crockery and utensil you might imagine you would need ( and a few more) was provided. Two dishwashers were a fantastic bonus and saved a lot of time.
Very comfortable beds and linen bedding added to the luxurious and sophisticated feel of the weekend. Plenty of seating and great party spaces. The bar area was brilliant and loads of room in the lounge for slide shows and quizzes. The in house technology allowed for dancing and videos, etc which was a real bonus. Lovely dining room allowed us to have a catered meal served in style. The weather was awful so we had to curtail some of our outdoor events but it was certainly no hardship just to relax in the house with a cream tea. Would definitely recommend Matlock Bath as a great place if you are looking for a sophisticated and interesting venue. Portland House is expensive but overall offers very good value for money and makes a great venue for a large house party. Highly recommended.

“Great house, great location.”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This fantastic house is in a beautiful location. It is well equipped, we didn't need anything I had taken 'just in case'. The beds are very comfortable and the bed linen fabulous. The ground floor accommodation is quite cosy if you need to get the whole party in one room all together though. The attention to detail by the owners to make your individual visit special is of particular note. Well worth a stay!

“Amazing weekend”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This house didn't disappoint it looked amazing in the pics but we were all blown away when we saw it in the flesh.
We went for a weekend for a friends birthday and all of us loved the house.
We loved the bar and it was well used.
Also loved the fact all 22 of us could sit together and eat in the big dining room.
Lovely sized rooms and Juliet who owns the house was lovely and easy to contact and really helpful..
Would highly recommend this house and the surroundings ideal for birthdays or hen/stag do's.
