This historic Georgian hotel is set in two acres of Derbyshire hillside, and the majority of rooms have beautiful views over the Derwent Valley, providing a peaceful environment in which to relax and unwind. The main A6 is only a short distance below, and follows the river through the "Little Switzerland" scenery of limestone cliffs and steep wooded slopes.

The independent family run hotel dates back to the 1780's and will have had numerous distinguished people cross its threshold, including Lord Byron, who was so moved by his visit to Matlock Bath that he was inspired to etch a poem on the dining room window. Queen Victoria visited when still a young princess and signed the same pane.

The Byron Room, so called because this is the room where Lord Byron dined when he etched the famous 'unfinished' poem on a pane of window glass, is used as a private dining room for smaller parties and celebrations.

We stopped here for two nights. Arrived by car via cross country route. Went to Chatsworth House on the first day. Matlock Bath illuminations on the second.

Our room and food were adequate. But the bar toilets were a real let down!

They were shabby, smelt and desperately needed a lick of paint.

The toilet bowl stank to high heaven and there was mold on the ceiling. The taps barely worked and the floor was atrocious. The floor was carpeted in it felt soggy under your feet when you walked on it.

To top it all off the hand dryer was out of order!!!

The hotel itself was great. We had a lovely weekend here. But the biggest thing that let the hotel down was the shabby bog. They definitely need to fit a brand new bog in! A bit of a let down here.
