This is the second time we have stayed at the Temple and it is an absolute delight. Mel and Chris are wonderful hosts who made sure that we had a fantastic stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a lovely comfortable bed. Stunning views over the Derwent Valley greeted us every morning and we were just a short stroll...

My other half and I decided to take a last minute trip to Matlock Bath last year. Given that the illuminations were in full swing and the short notice to book, we weren't expecting to find excellent accommodation. We were very pleasantly surprised! Whilst the ascent to the Temple is steep (there is an alternate and less arduous route to...

Our room was big and cosy with an enormous bed. Two windows the let light flood in and gave us fantastic views of Matlock Bath. The owners were helpful. They run the place and live there, but we were given a key to the main door so we could come and go as we pleased. It's a big hotel, so...

Large clean comfortable room. Very good choice for...

We stayed here for three nights. Central to Matlock and short trip to Bakewell. Fantastic breakfast and nice room. The owners are wonderful - so welcoming and friendly. Breakfast is magnificent. Also offer Gluten Free options and non-caffine teas which was perfect. We had a front room but there is little noise from the busy road (we live near M4)....

We had a lovely stay at The Temple which is right in the heart of Matlock Bath (the train station is around a 10 minute walk away, although there are some pretty steep climbs up to the accommodation, which are more than rewarded by the fantastic views). The owners were friendly and welcoming, and The Lodge itself felt peaceful and...

I'll start with the good points,plenty of parking,the man at reception was very welcoming,the view was wonderful,the room was a good size except they had put a lounge in the room which took up to much space and made the room to crowded. Unfortunately there are a few negatives,because we booked thru...

Stayed here for an anniversary weekend break, lovely comfortable stay, easy access to all Matlock bath facilities. Very nice owners. Beautiful toiletries in bathroom and biggest fluffiest towels I've ever seen but no hairdryer in room though
