We had an overnight stay, not wanting to drive back to Manchester after a show at Buxton Opera House, Oldfileld Guest House was the perfect place, and added to a lovely weekend. Colin and Avril are committed to making their guests comfortable, giving a warm welcome, and providing well equipped and spotless rooms. The cooked breakfast is possibly the best... More

Stopped here party of four middle September. Had a good weekend, breakfast ample, hot and tasty with really nice room with separate bathroom below. Comfortable and quiet just as we wanted. Clean, pleasant host and no complaints. Sister lost much needed medicine some where in the bedroom and called after we had left but was told nothing found and a... More

Over the last 12 Years we have had many items left behind and in every case of an item with value we have contacted the customer and offered to return it. Sometimes they say bin it and sometimes they ask for its return. The last item was a drawer full of clothes that we returned at our cost. In common... More

Thanks for that appreciation. It's a pity we were full but then Buxton is a very popular destination and booking in advance at the weekend for the more desirable B&B's is essential certainly from March to October inclusive. Any way I am pleased we managed to find him somewhere to stay and hopefully he and is lovely partner will come... More

This charming, large Victorian house is ideally situated for anyone visiting Buxton for the Theatre or to explore the delights of the town. The owners are very pleasant & welcoming & the whole place is spotlessly clean with great attention to detail evident everywhere. The 2 rooms I saw are of a good size, well furnished with toiletries, bottled water,... More

Thank you for your comments that are much appreciated as we have invested more money in better beds and bathroom linen such as full sized adult towels (bath sheets as they are sometimes referred to). It is of interest that not only did he pay for 2 rooms for his family to stay for 2 nights as well but he... More

This was a last minute booking made by ourselves and we were pleased as we pulled into the driveway of the guesthouse - it looked well maintained, cosy and welcoming; just what we needed on a miserable Friday afternoon after a couple of hours walking around Buxton. We were greeted by the owners who were friendly and welcoming, and it... More

We booked two nights at this charming guest house in order to explore the town of Buxton as well as the surrounding areas; it proved to be an ideal choice as it is situated right on the corner of the beautiful Pavillion park gardens and Opera House as well as being only a couple of minutes walk from the main...

We stayed just the single night at Oldfield for the Richard Hawley concert at the Buxton Opera House, which was incredible, and wished we were staying longer! Looking at previous reviews the word 'dated' in relation to the decor is extremely harsh. The furnishings are decidedly old-fashioned but in the most charming and lovely way, everything is laid out beautifully... More

This Year so far has been unusual in that most of our Guests, but not all, have been in their 20's and 30's and without exception just like this couple have been absolutely charming, polite, communicative and appreciative of the what we are providing. It makes us feel good about what we do. Although we are only in February we... More

It was a lovely house, which was very close to the opera house. We went to see a play that was very interesteing and enjoyable. The house has a beautiful garden although we did not see it as it was covered in snow. The owners, Avril and Colin were very friendly people who provided a very tastyn vegetarian breakfast. We...

A lovely couple and we are so pleased they had a very enjoyable time. Coincidentally we went to the same Agatha Christie play "Murder is announced" and we also enjoyed it. The Opera House is a spectacular venue and offers a very wide range of performances. This couple stayed in the same room as the previous reviewer and as you... More

Bit of a mystery why this particular B&B isn’t much higher up the Trip Advisor list. I can only presume it’s the lack of reviews, because there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with it. So just because the B&B ends up rating low on the list, this isn’t a horror show. Oldfield is however, a little bit dated (to the extent where... More

On balance fair comment apart from one two issues. First this is a Victorian House over 100 years so it is not a modern Hotel. Second the carpet referred to was installed by John Lewis plc (the UK's leading store) this Year (2012) and cost over £1,000 following water damage to its predecessor. (We have the receipt for inspection) The... More

This was one of the highlights of our week in England. House, hosts, breakfast and dinner: all wonderful. We shared dinner with other visiting couples and it was lively and entertaining, and the food and wine excellent. Strongly recommend staying at Oldfield House if you are any where in the vicinity. It's a bit hard to find so follow Sue's... More
