Matlock Hotels

Matlock is found in Derbyshire on the summit of the Peak District National Park and is only about 20 miles away from Derby. Its real character emerged when John Smedley born in 1803 established the Hydrotherapy in Matlock and made it into one of the most celebrated centres for the treatment of ailments with water therapy in the country. This in turn created a need for Matlock hotels and all types of hotels were welcomed from business Hotels, five star deluxe hotels, the grand country hotels, to boutique hotels.

It is a beautiful town with a calmly relaxed atmosphere enhanced by the water and described through a stunning collection of 18th and 19th century Regency villas evocative of a seaside resort without the sea, the introduction of the railways in the 1840's of course dramatically increased the town's popularity and the need for Holiday and business accommodation. The town is divided into two parts the South Parade and the North Parade. The town is quite unique and strangely reminiscent of a European town as it comes to life at night where Venetian Nights include illuminated boats on the river.

There are many visitor attractions and include a cable car ride to the top of the High Top where a 60 acre country park exhibits a spectacular multimedia show, fantastic view and underground tours of two caves, Rutland Cavern and the Great Masson Cavern. Gulliver's Kingdom and the Royal Cave is a family theme Parks and offers hours of enjoyment, history enthusiasts may enjoy a tour of the Cromford Mill and the world's first Water powered cotton mill.

The Matlock hotels are described through a range of architectural styles from the wonderful Regency buildings many of them remodelled and renovated to present designer Hotels accommodations, to grand country retreats found on the outskirts and more modern design and convenience is found flanking the arterial roads. At the top of the range the Matlock hotels offer airport transfer directly to hotel steps and awaiting porters, however many visitors choose the convenience of car hire collected at the airports.

En suite bathrooms provide luxury through designer fittings and are complemented with bathrobes, slippers and deluxe toiletries. The Matlock hotels present fine dining at the many on site restaurants housed and is the first choice of locals and visitors as the Hotels offer international cuisines crafted by master chefs from the freshest of local produce with selected wines.
