You must stay here! - Rating 5/5

Our stay at the Green Gables exceeded all of our expectations. We were in a perfect location, walking distance to shops &could park our car outside the front door.Our room was very clean, well designed and the linen/towels were super soft. If I had to fault anything it would be the water pressure in the shower but the temperature was perfect.Do yourself a favour and have breakfast each morning. Martin makes an amazing English breakfast and I am having withdrawals now that I am back in London.We will definitely be staying here again in the future.Thank you for a great experience,Lynda &Dalton24y/o Australian couple

Wonderful Break from London! - Rating 5/5

Enjoyed the midlands and Derby. My son teenaged son just loved this place. He was very comfortable and the B and B had everything we needed. The bonus was the Green Gables is just a short easy walk to the Derby FC Stadium. We just followed the crowd. Highly recommend this B and B. Lovely, Helpful people and a great location. Thank you.

Lovely gentleman - Rating 5/5

The owner informed us there were no more rooms and that he wouldn't take a payment as it was all so last minute. He couldn't have been more apologetic, was very nice and wanted to try and help me out but he had nothing available.

We stayed 2 nights &had a very warm &friendly welcome. The room was ideal for our needs &the location good.We had a large white van, but advise in advance as everything is done to accomodate guest parking &departure times....something you don't get eveywhere!There is other easy parking very close in the event of problems.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or stay here again :)

Very rude - Rating 1/5

I'm glad other guests have enjoyed Mr Richardson's hospitality but this wasn't our experience at all. Having arranged to arrive around 10pm we were then delayed, so when called by Green Gables, I asked if arriving around 10.30 was ok and was told it was. We knocked at just after 10.30 and Mr Richardson opened the door and said immediately and very aggressively 'I'm not happy'. Despite my apology he continued to repeat that he wasn't happy in a belligerent manner to the extent that we couldn't talk with him. If I had been on my own I would have felt very unsafe. My partner and I left straightaway and had to find another place to stay late at night.His behaviour was out of all proportion and totally unacceptable.


Mr & Mrs Skelton booked their accommodation and we where told that they would arrive around 5pm it got to 5-45pm so i rang them and they said that they had been delayed and would possibly be another hour.It got to 7-30pm i rang them again. they then told me it would be about 10-30 pm. it got to 10-45 and they finally arrived.I told them that i was not happy, we are not a hotel with reception open 24 hours.We are a small guest house.They did not like what i said and they left.As you can see from the rest of my reviews.99% of guests that have stayed with us, have been highly delighted with me and the services that we provide.

Pleasant friendly b&b and reasonable value for money. Suggest that you change your sausage supplier though, cheap, tough and full of cereal.
