The welcome was a little lacking enthusiasm, which improved a little while being shown our room. The room was clean and very well presented with all you would except in a room of this standard. I was surprised though that while a freestanding bath was the centre feature of the bathroom there was no shower other than the hand set...

Very nice hotel in a lovely location in the heart of the Derbyshire dales, very close th Chatsworth House. The service is excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. The food is also very good, with a lovely restaurant.

With so many impersonal, lifeless hotels around these days it was a joy to stay in this wonderful hotel. It has such character & situated in a beautiful village ideal for visiting the surrounding countryside. The small touches added to our stay, fresh coffee and milk in the room and sherry and chocolates. A comfy bed with soft pillows and...

Riverside House is situated in the picturesque Derbyshire village of Ashford in the Water, an excellent base for walking or touring in the Peak District. It is an exceptionally high quality country house hotel located on the banks of the River Wye. Our comfortable and elegantly furnished room looked out over the garden towards the river. The friendly greeting from...

We first stayed at Riverside House Hotel for our 25th anniversary and have made a number of visits over the years so it was a natural choice for our 40th anniversary. Jo has gone to a lot of trouble to remember us and always treats us in a welcoming way. We were pleased to see the Kingfisher room is still...

A lovely hotel with the river going past the grounds. Bedrooms ars luxurious and the food is absolutely delicious. Fine dining at its best. Service is first class - nothing is too much trouble. Ashford is a quaint peak district village, nearby are Buxton and Bakewell which offer more in the shops.

Just had a lovely afternoon tea for my 40th birthday. Cannot praise enough. Piles of ridiculously tasty cakes, sandwiches, teacakes, scones and piles of tea and coffee. Staff were both friendly and welcoming , yet left us to enjoy a good 3 hours of chatting and relaxing in the lovely orangery. Highly recommend!

This small hotel is an absolute gem. We booked quite last minute as part of a trip to see friends and couldn't believe our luck! The bedroom had fresh fruit, cafetière coffee and a decanter of sherry on arrival. The evening meal was absolutely excellent - I had lobster broth, fresh venison and a spectacular chocolate dessert. There was an...

It is almost 20 years since I was last a regular visitor to this charming, small, privately-owned and rather special hotel - but nothing much has changed except for the better! The manager and many of his staff have been here for most of that time and this surely illustrates continuity, consistency and a degree of stability seldom found in...

A surprise weekend break organised by my husband in September. This was a beautiful little hotel with a well-equipped, albeit very small, bedroom. The breakfast was delicious and the service first class. We didn't eat any other meals here so cannot comment. The building and grounds were stunning.
