We attended a wedding and stayed overnight. It is a beautiful location with fantastic views for the photos. The room was warm and comfortable and the dinner fantastic. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. They went above and beyond to help create a magical day. How this place is only three stars I do not know.

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Santo’s, everything from the check in to the check out was perfect. The staff couldn’t do enough for me and my wife who were made to feel like Royalty.
If anyone reading this review is looking for a break in a beautiful location with a homely feel, this is the place for you.

Fantastic! Used Santo’s as a venue for my daughters Christening. Absolutely blown away by the quality of service received on the day and prior to the day when arranging all the little details. We had full use the courtyard and the adjoining room with everything laid out to our specifications. Staff handled third party services very well and coordinated perfectly. The food was absolutely flawless and plentiful and worth every penny.

We attended a wedding and decided to stay overnight. Highly recommended. The venue is excellent for small weddings. The food was very good and the service perfect. All of the staff at Santos are an asset to the place from receptionist, bar staff, waiting staff and of course Santo himself. Everyone seems to take pride in their jobs and it shows. The bedrooms are very good, freshly decorated and the bed very comfortable. Plenty of places to sit and relax.

Had a great weekend break staying at Santos Higham Farm Hotel. Staff were really friendly and very helpful. We also ate in the restaurant and the food and service were both excellent. If you are visiting the Matlock area it’s a great place to stay close by.
We were a couple but would also go back as a larger family group where some of the tables were set up for large families.
