Needs maintenance.
The B & B was so disappointing. It looks lovely from the outside and in a lovely setting. The pub itself also is fine BUT the room was terrible. Forget the fact that it needed desperately updating, it hadn't been cleaned, the bedding was old, huge cracks in the walls and ceiling, no soaps etc, no kettle for the tea & coffee, one towel to share with 3 guests and the list goes on. This was meant to be a 2 night stay as a gift for my son and 2 grandchildren. All 3 of them had bites!! There were no rooms free so couldn't be moved and after looking at and finding other hotels in Matlock were full they had no other choice but to stay. At breakfast other guest were also complaining. Breakfast was actually very good. Sadly, my son and children only stayed the one night and had no other choice but to come home. It sounds like the whole B&B part of The Square & Compass should be shut down and reviewed. I do have photos

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Unclear rooms clearly not sanitised. disappointed
Unfortunately the room was unclean complained was told it would be cleaned!! As we are in the middle of a pandemic I expected the room to be spotless and sanitized which it cleanly wasn’t. The bathroom floor had not be touched creased pillow cases !!! Dead flies on the windowsill and a uncleaned toilet after I was told the room was ready !!! I do have to say the cooked breakfast was very good but waited 45/60 minutes. So disappointed in the cleanliness of the B&B I hope the next visitor do not experience my weekend . I do have photos but will not post to stay any embarrassment
