We booked last minute for a bank holiday break and were not disappointed, a lovely room overlooking the garden and very comfy bed meant we quickly re-charged those batteries. A lovely hearty breakfast, chosen the night before with a tick box form, set us up for a day's walking. Good pubs nearby and a fabulous Thai restaurant around the right... More

Traditional B&B. Had a great time here booked this for myself and a few guests. Rooms were nice, good location and the breakfast was a good start for the morning. Back garden was peaceful and to top it off we had good weather so no complaints. Would say again if in Matlock. Easy walk from train station.

Just had 4 nights at Riverbank Guest House in Matlock. Jennie & Graham were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Staff also friendly. Lovely breakfast. Location within walking distance to town and perfectly situated for exploring the peak district. Room very clean and comfortable. Would stay again and already recommended to a friend.

Great breakfast, lovely family and staff. Our room was a bit drafty due to fire exit not closing properly. Other than that, couldn't really fault it. A stones throw from good pubs, bars and restaurants

We had never been to Derbyshire and Riverbank looked ideal and it certainly was. Only a bus ride from Chatsworth too. A peaceful backwater, but just off the A6 and near restaurants and the railway. Good breakfasts too!
