We booked Portland House 1870 for a family gathering, over a long weekend. Our ages ranged from six weeks to over 70 years. The rooms were perfect for us, comfortable beds, excellent bathrooms. The kitchen and dining facilities were way beyond excellent, and enabled us to eat and drink together as a big family should. I am sure we shall be back
Juliet suggested many places to visit, where to eat and where to buy food. Overall excellent, excellent, excellent
Where to start...the house is absolutely amazing! The pictures do not give it justice particularly the garden which we spent most of our time. Every detail was brilliant. The bar and speakers were brilliant and meant we could enjoy the weekend at the house without having to go into town at night.
The support before we got there was absolutely brilliant.
I couldn't recommend this house anymore. We had 23 on a hen party and every single person said it was the best hen they have been on and a big part of that was the location and house. They are all going to tell their friends!!
Thank you for making our stay so great.
If I have to organize another hen this will be my first choice!
The accommodation is excellent. We were self catering so the kitchen was a focal point. It was big enough and well equipped to meet the needs of 15 people. The bedrooms and beds were all comfortable. Location on the edge of Matlock Bath meant that cars where not used during the weekend.
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.
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
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.
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.
