We visited the house in may half term as a family get together plenty of room for the 16 of us the house was great with every thing you needed the only fault was the lack of cleaning of the house on arrival kitchen is in need of a deep clean but all had a great time
This is our fifth visit to this excellent house. The service is good the rooms are spacious and the facilities great. It is value for money and in a superb location. The owners are attentive and listen to any issues that may arise. A very worthwhile destination and a superb place to enjoy relaxation and a great base for hill walking in Matlock and surrounding district.
A beautiful huge house ideal for a group of people. I will start with the positives first - The owners were very welcoming and quick to respond to requests.The spa garden is very nice and would recommend the hot tub, we did not use the sauna but it looks lovely. The views are wonderful we had really good weather and used the barbecue which is a very good size, the front garden has lots of garden furniture and is a lovely place to sit. All bedrooms are ensuite which is an added bonus,obviously some bedrooms are bigger and have better views than others but generally speaking all are very adequate, lovely comfortable beds. The accomodation was very suitable for our needs. The only negative comment we can make about this property is as previously mentioned in the other reviews is the low standard of cleaning and can fully agree that very little cleaning is done above and below waist height and it really could do with a lot of TLC.The kitchen needs a deep clean and the washing machine was still not working which was a nuisance having stayed for one week. It may also be worth mentioning to the owners about the fire exit door onto the spa garden, the exit from the side garden is pad locked. With more attention to cleaning this house could warrant an exceptional rating.
I spent 4 nights here with my brothers and sisters to celebrate an 80th and 70th birthday. The bedrooms are all ensuite which was a must for our group. There are very steep steps up to the house which is not so good for older people as there was no handrail.
As other reviewers have noted, the kitchen really needs a deep clean, the washing machine wasn't working which was a nuisance. A lot of the dishes in the kitchen cupboards had not been washed properly and the carpet and bin were not nice at all. I agree with the previous reviewer who remarked about the lack of TLC and general low standard of cleaning . However we had a lovely few days there and enjoyed sitting out on the front lawn in the sunshine with a glass or two of wine admiring the wonderful views.
A group of us used Robertswood House as a base for a weeks walking holiday. It was a great location for this and we certainly got a good deal of exercise walking up the hill from Matlock to the house. However, the views from the front windows and the nice seating area on the front lawn made it all worth while - especially when the sun shone.
The bedrooms were spacious and the kitchen well equipped although the cleaner could be a little more attentive.
The owners were very welcoming and quick to respond to requests.
We would certainly use this house again as we enjoyed our stay and there are so many wonderful walks in the area that we still haven't done.
