We stayed in the King Garden Room for three nights. We found that Matlock was a great base for visiting Chatsworth House, walking in the Peak District National Park and exploring Derbyshire more generally. Ellen House is a terrific B and B. Well located in terms of shops and restaurants but in a very quiet no through road, it provides...

Very clean and comfortable B&B in excellent situation in Matlock. Stayed in the Garden Room with doors onto the garden. Lovely tea tray with home-made flapjack. Breakfast was outstanding, including fresh fruit, yogurt, home-made jams and 'specials'. Catered for gluten-free diet. Hosts welcoming and attentive. Can't recommend highly enough.

A very complimentary review, thank you. We do prepare our breakfast with great care and it is good to know that our selection of fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and home made jams are appreciated. And of course the full breakfast cooked by John! My sister (my jam maker) has just added another award to her existing awards, a bronze for...

Ellen house is situated just off the main road through Matlock on a `dead end` road so no through traffic. A good quiet location with on street parking but there is a bit of an uphill to consider. The hosts are lovely, welcoming people. Nothing if too much trouble for Anne and John and they are also a font of...

We had a very pleasant stay at Ellen House. All B&B's should be to this high standard. My wife managed to leave a necklace and dress in the room, but the thought and care shown while we stayed there was extended to when we had left, as Anne kindly rang to let us know.

Cannot fault this place. We had a great stay and couldn't have been more comfortable. Our hosts were accommodating with my wife's vegetarian menu requirements and always had a smile on their face. I genuinely have never stayed in a better B&B. Will visit again. 10/1

This was our fourth stay at Ellen House and it certainly won't be our last. Fantastic location within a few minutes walk of the town centre but so quiet and peaceful. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and a superb breakfast. We brought some friends with us this time who were also very impressed. Thanks Anne and John, see you again soon.

Visited Ellen house this weekend had a fantastic time couldn't of wished for a better place to stay. Rooms were very clean and large ours looked over the garden. Breakfast was lovely couldn't of asked for anything more. If we go to Matlock again will definitely book this bed and breakfast.

Thank you for this review, so good to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. The garden is looking amazing at the moment with daffodils out, birds feeding and our resident squirrel happily munching away! It will be great if you stay with us again, looking forward to a return visit.
