“Portland House is perfect for any celebration.”
Reviewed 10 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

A group of 18 of us stayed here for a hen do in July and we had an amazing time. The house has been beautifully restored with all the charm and characteristics you would hope to find in a house of this age. The house certainly lends itself to being a party house too with a bar and great sound system, but it is clean and obviously well cared for. The quality of the furniture, bedding and bathrooms make this a luxurious stay. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a place to have a celebration or a family gathering. We will most certainly be back. 11/10.

“Spacious, great facilities and well equipped large house,perfect venue for our Corporate Team Building event”
Reviewed 18 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked for a Corporate Team Building event - having previously stayed at Portland House in May 2017 - so wewere repeat customers. The house is just perfect for large groups with the vast majority of the rooms ensuite.
The hosts looked after us very well and nothing was too much trouble - thank you for another fantastic stay

“Birthdays Celebrations - perfect venue”
Reviewed 24 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

20+ of us- young and older headed to Portland House for joint 40th and 70th birthday celebrations and it was the perfect location! Almost all the bedroom are ensuite which was superb and the facilities are great. We were lucky with the weather and made the most of the garden.

Matlock Bath is lovely and it was helpful that so many attractions and walks were literally on the doorstep! We had a great day at Abraham Heights.

I would highly recommend for a family or group visit.

Juliet & Martin were lovely and I was very grateful to Juliet for answering all my queries in the run up to the weekend.

“Perfect hen weekend!”
Reviewed 17 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We stayed at the beautiful Portland House for a hen weekend and it completely lived up to expectations after reading all the great reviews! With most rooms having en suites it was perfect for 20 girls all getting ready for a party and the living and dining areas (not to forget the bar!) are stunning and ideal for a party. Juliet and Martin were so friendly and they couldn't have been more helpful with all of our questions and their recommendations. Overall it was a fantastic weekend in a beautiful home.

“UKAStock 2018”
Reviewed 20 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This is our second year at this venue for our annual meetup. The house is well suited to a large group (23 first year, 22 this year) and we have been well catered for with loads of bathrooms, ample bedrooms and space downstairs. The house has two large TVs, very good wifi penetration and good 4g. The bar room has skeeball, and plenty of space to setup more games consoles. Plus fridges! It happily accommodated many of us who are used to drunken antics and playing board and video games late into the night :)

“Fantastic Matlock Bath house for family celebration”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We wanted a house to accommodate 24 family members from ages 15 to 63 for a 60th Birthday weekend. There were loads of great things about the house and location for our party - where to start? Accommodation in 12 bedrooms, 10 with en suite and others shared large bathroom with bath and shower. Always plenty of hot water and central heating - very comfortable and cosy. 10 very good sized bedrooms and 2 a bit smaller but still fitting twin beds. Big living room with all mod con TV (Sky etc), seating for everyone and your very own pub in house - complete with bar, bar billiards, fridges for drinks and large tv on wall. Massive dining room seated 24 no problem. Modern large kitchen and utility room with two dishwashers, washing machine and sink. Location perfect for party of mixed generations - as small town of Matlock Bath is a couple of minutes walk and no need to ferry around anyone who wants to go to pub or just amuse themselves in town. We had catering by Charlie Ratcliffe at The Private Chef company with Tony serving - which was recommended by Juliet at Portland House and we couldn't have had better food or service. Also had cakes provided by Alex at Butterfingers Bakery in Matlock - prettiest I have ever seen and tasted gorgeous too, would highly recommend them. Martin and Juliet who own the house were helpful but totally unobtrusive throughout the stay. We would definitely go there again.

“30th Birthday Bash”
Reviewed 4 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We have had the best time celebrating my 30th Birthday at Portland House. I cannot recommend enough! Juliet has the highest attention to detail and customer service, ensuring everything ran smoothly. The house is beautifully decorated and was made to be a party house with a fab bar, music system and dining room to accommodate all 24 of us! Thank you so much for a brilliant stay.
