Such a pleasant place to stay. The owners and staff clearly care about their visitors and make you feel at home. The house and rooms have a great old fashion feel but are also very clean and comfortable. Nice location in Matlock with a short walk to shops, restaurants and pubs. Always had pleasant conversations with the owners and fellow...

Once again, Riverbank Guesthouse never disappoints....Had really relaxing time over the holidays there. Great hosts, great English breaksfasts, etc. Had the pleasure of being there during the Raft Races on Boxing Day, which was a good laugh. The hosts treat their guests like family, really can't say enough good things about this place.

Great people and food, Riverbank House is very clean and has a warm friendly feel about it. It is ideally situated in Matlock as it is fairly central, but enough off the beaten track in a quiet little area

We stayed here with our 4 year old during half term and it was just perfect. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It was no trouble to them that we arrived an hour early for check in. Our room had a four poster bed so we really felt like we had a bit of luxury. We all slept comfortably....

Perfectly placed in Matlock and only a walk to Matlock Bath this charming and delightful guest house is further enhanced by its hosts. Jenny and Graham's attention to detail simply add to the charm and their local knowledge is valuable. On the river with a beautiful garden it was perfect for us to venture out to some great walks and...

The room was very comfy. The breakfast was delicious, especially the poached eggs, and timely served. The location delightful, next to the river Derwent and the High St. It was close by major roads for site seeing. Local restaurants and pubs are nearby. A vibrant town on the edge of the Peaks.
