It felt like you had just gone to stay over at your friends, the staff couldnt do more to more to accomodate, As my girlfriend was vegetarian they did a...

Thank you for this review. We do try to offer something different for vegans and vegetarians and have just added some more choices to our vegetarian menu. Do come and see for yourself! Another visit would be lovely.

We were welcomed on arrival and immediately felt " at home". Our room was nicely decorated, cosy and spotlessly clean. We settled in with a cup of coffee and home made muffins that had been left for us - a lovely touch. It's all the little thoughtful extras provided that make Ellen House special ..... nice toiletries, a torch, bottled...

A lovely review, thank you! It is good to know that the care we put into our B&B results in satisfied guests, we do try to provide everything that you could possibly need during your stay and know that this is much appreciated by our guests.

This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in. My mom and I were made so welcome. Or hotel come to that. Anne and John are perfect hosts in every way. It's spotlessly clean,the food is amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Not a home from home. Much better than that.Gorgeous rooms, comfortable beds. Love extra touches....

This B and B is extra special. Its a warm, friendly and spotlessly clean house and we were made to feel very very welcome. Breakfast was to die for, as were Annes muffins that were freshly baked in the afternoon (and replenished daily)! We would not consider staying anywhere else next time we come to Matlock.
