We had an amazing weekend at the 5* Portland House. From the minute I booked the house until we left it was superb. It was spotlessley clean, really well equipped and the lay out excellent. Everyone was really relaxed from the moment they arrived. We had Sloanes Catering cater for us on the Saturday and they were equally excellent. An added bonus was it was Matlock Baths Illuminations so we had firework display on the Saturday. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.
Portland House is a 5 star quality house fully equipped to accommodate 24 partying adults! Spent a weekend Friday to Sunday there at the end of September and can not recommend it enough! The quality is fantastic with a well equipped kitchen, tasteful furnishing and spotless bed linen and towels.
We celebrated my 50th birthday with a total of 12 couples staying and we partied until the very early hours both nights so don't worry about being too loud.... no complaints! The sound system is brilliant, plenty loud enough and you can play it in several areas with the ability to turn rooms off if people want a quieter space.
The whole downstairs area is a fantastic social space large enough for us all to eat together and also relax in the lounge together. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all tastefully decorated, were spotlessly clean and felt luxurious.
Juliet was helpful and kindly left a birthday welcome for me with a few essentials plus flowers and chocolates. The outdoor space is fantastic too with plenty of parking and lovely gardens to the front.
As others have commented the bar area is fantastic giving a great party atmosphere.
I would highly recommend this party house and hope to return for a reprise in the future.
Wow. What a gorgeous house. Perfect party house, own bar, dining room seating 24, garden, stunning decor with original character of a bygone age. All facilities were exceptional and extremely comfortable .....and catered dinner on Saturday night was perfect....
Only a very slight regret ....a very mild weekend although tipping it down and windy.....’women of a certain age’ kind of wanted to open a few windows to cool down .....so we opened all the doors and told the men to put on a jumper if they were cold
This is our second visit in two years and we will definitely return again.
The house is stunning and the service from Juliet is second to none.
Every room is beautifully decorated and the bar room is fantastic fun.
Highly recommend that you book.
Very nice location just a few minutes walk from Matlock Bath centre - which is a little Victorian spa town with some great attractions (we visited the Lead Mining Museum and took the trip down the mine). The excellent ameneties of the house start with the ample parking and, once inside, there's the dining room with seating for 20+, the excellent catering kitchen, the living room with that Chesterfield, and the bar - with the bar billiards table that was well used during our stay. And that doesn't mention the 12 bedrooms, 10 ensuite... Loads of room for all my family to stay and celebrate a significant birthday with me. Good communications with Juliet before the stay and during. I would recommend definitely.
