It's the finishing touches and attention to detail that make this place so special. Alan took a picture of us before we went off to the wedding and it was in our inbox when we returned home. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is better than any you'd be dished up in a 5 star hotel. Alan's home...

Thanks for the comment about us not being clinical - this is a former Edwardian Gentleman's Residence and we have tried to ensure that it holds on to a little style without blending into the plethora of beige and bland hotels that seem to be prevalent these days. This doesn't mean that we have any laurels to rest on and...

We spent two nights at the Sheriff Lodge with a 3 year old and a 3 month old. The small child's bed and the cot that were placed in the room were perfect. The room and en-suite were really clean and well maintained. When we needed extra things like a bowl for sterilising baby stuff and plates and knives for...

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...

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.
