We stayed here for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Having read the reviews we weren't expecting to be disappointed but it couldn't have been better. The owners made us feel very special with lovely extra touches in our room to add to the romance. We were given recommendations for local eateries in a friendly email after we'd booked...

Centrally placed quiet B&B with quality fittings, particualrly the beds. Wide choice at breakfast - well presented. Friendly helpful hosts - able to make recommendations with regard to eateries. In our case we chose to go to the local pub up the road & Thailand No 1 in the town centre - both I can recommend - an easy walk...

We have recently enjoyed a wonderful two week holiday based at Sheriff Lodge. This was our first visit to Derbyshire, and as we had such a great experience, we have booked again for next year. Why Sheriff Lodge? While planning our holiday in Derbyshire, we browsed the Tourist Information Website. We then browsed the Websites of a short list of...

Three of us stayed at the Sheriff Lodge, myself, my wife and my teenage daughter, we were in The Warren, which works well as a family room, more like two rooms, with a seperate child/teen area. Alan and Kate were excellent hosts, and we were welcomed with a hot drink on arrival-the coffee is excellent. The rooms are clean and...

This review is written for a friend who recently stayed. These are her comments: Can't fault Sheriff Lodge, everything was wonderful and I can't thank the hosts enough. I will miss the fabulous breakfasts, especially the Eggs Benedict! If visiting Matlock again I would choose this B&B without hesitation. The fact that there were other returning guests speaks volumes. Kate...

Thanks for your tremendouos comments - awards are great to achieve but it really is the 'Returning Guest' that tells us we are doing something right.

Our title sums this B & B up, although it does omit mention of the amazingly friendly owners. We were welcomed with tea, coffee and cakes and after unwinding following a long drive were taken to our room, which had at it's centre the largest bed imagineable - much appreciated by those of us for whom a six-footer is just...

We stayed at Sheriff Lodge on 25th and 26th May to celebrate our birthdays. Alan and Kate were amazing hosts and we felt very well looked after.

We stayed at Sherif Lodge from 17 to 21 May 2012 with our two greyhounds. It was perfect for us. Super accommodation, truly outstanding breakfasts, (from full english; to fruit salads to die for; home-made bread; cereals; juices, etc.) The friendlyness was second to none and we will definitely go back again. Only a short walk from Matlock town centre,...

We found this hotel via the Tourist Information Office list. It is wonderful. The bedrooms were well-furnished, the bathrooms spotless. The enormous bed in The Loft is the best night's sleep I've had in years. Amenities for guests are many and varied. The family made us so welcome and we left reluctantly after a large and freshly-cooked breakfast. We were...

Susan, Thanks for your great response - our gigantic (7 foot long) beds are obviously still a hit:-) But your review gives me a great opportunity to clarify a couple of minor points. Firstly we are not a hotel - the English Tourist Board won't allow this title as we simply (but we hope very effectively) supply bed & breakfast...
