We have just returned from a two night stay at Griff House. Our only complaint is that it was too short. The house is beautiful, our room was large and well appointed. The bathroom was well equipped and the shower very efficient. Breakfast is high quality, freshly cooked and served piping hot. Best of all was the welcome extended by... More

The property is lovely, décor superb, welcome fantastic, location excellent, in fact everything about Griff House is wonderful, many thanks Martin and Kathrine The eating places recommended by Martin were "spot on". Buxton is only small but full of interesting places to visit.

We had a lovely 3 night stay and Griff House made an excellent base to explore the Peak District. The rooms were beautifully appointed, great attention to detail. Not a single fault. Martin was helpful and even gave us a lift to the station. Breakfast was a pleasure and it is well worth ordering the porridge the night before. We... More

We used the lodging as a base for working the Eroica Britannia event in Bakewell. Thoroughly recommended, great room with excellent amenities, including fresh milk. Although we didn't see much of Buxton this would make a good base for outdoor activities in the area

We stayed here whilst visiting the 'Eroica Britannia' Cycle Festival in Bakewell (if you haven't been it is well worth a visit). I couldn't really mark Griff House down in any area based on our 3 night stay. Martin provided a warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious, well appointed and... More

We only spent two nights at Griff House but I can say it felt much more than a home from home. The attention to detail from Martin was second to none. A beautiful room (No. 4) gave us everything we needed and combined with the local knowledge from Martin gave us the perfect stay. Breakfast was awesome! Thank you!

Visited Buxton last week and stayed a couple of nights at griff house. It has recently been refurbished and is really lovely. Our room was huge and great value. Martin was a great host and gave us lots of touristy tips . Breakfast was lovely and basically nothing was too much trouble. Little touches like a plug by a mirror... More

Lovely accommodation and breakfast and Martin was a great host, making us very welcome and offering lots of useful information. Sadly due to an early Monday morning meeting commitment in Manchester we did not get to stay as long as we would have liked, but that's a good reason to return! Some beautiful walks in the area and being keen... More

We had a glorious weekend in Buxton staying at Griff House. Martin made us feel very welcome, the room (No 4) was perfect - light & airy - with a great bath and shower. Note the bath was much needed after our 13.5 mile hike on a circuit out via Chrome Hill and back via Axe Edge. Breakfasts were spot... More

Griff House deserves its number 1 rating. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The breakfast was excellent, ordering it the night before ensured you had exactly what you want. The quality and sourcing of the food was impressive. The hosts were on hand if anything was needed and nothing was too much trouble. We were a group... More
