Two nights at Griff during the Buxton Festival with almost non-stop sunshine - what could be better? The recent upgrade to the house has been done with great care and has resulted in a very smart, well appointed b&b. The bed was extremely comfortable; there'a lovely spacious living room; breakfast was delicious with lots of home made food; and Kathryn... More

Stayed for three nights in June, staying in room 7 (twin, en suite, very clean and well furnished). Martin made the whole stay felt very special, offering useful advice on eating and drinking nearby, on top of bring a marvellous host. The breakfasts were cooked perfectly to order, and after leaving my jacket in the room, Martin was kind enough... More

Stayed here for one night with 3 other colleagues. We had the 3 rooms at the top floor (2 singles, 1 twin). Lovely and welcoming. Within walking distance from restaurants and pubs. Great new, fresh and modern rooms. Breakfast with homemade granola, which was lovely, and more homemade breakfasty things. If you're ever in Buxton, I would definitely recommend Griff... More

Just back from 3 days in the wonderful Peak district. Buxton is a gem and Griff House is an excellent base, within easy walking distance to centre. Marin and Kathlyn work hard at making guests feel comfortable with fridge in the room and Buxton water, biscuits, milk tea coffee etc. refilled daily. The rooms are fresh and well appointed and...

We were made very welcome at Griff House by Martin. The room was of a high standard - new furnishings, decoration and modern shower room and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts and are looking forward to making the granola at home with the recipe Martin gave us! The B&B is very convenient to walk to Buxton town centre... More

We were looking for a B and B fairly close to the town centre and somewhere quiet. We found this gem and it did not disappoint me and my wife. The Guest House was situated in a lovely area of Buxton and was walkable to the centre and the theatre. The room we had was lovely and well catered with... More

I had a lovely 2 night stay at Griff House with my cousin recently. The B&B is in a perfect location-approx. 5 mins walk to the main town of Buxton but in a quiet residential area with parking. Home cooked breakfast with local produce & home made granola to die for! Very clean rooms with tea/coffee making facilities, biscuits &... More

Stayed for 4 nights as a central location for walking in Peak District. The accommodation is of the highest standard, recently furnished - very clean and everything of the highest quality. Perfectly located for the lovely town of Buxton I have nothing to fault the stay. I would highlight two outstanding qualities - the hosts Kathryn and Martin : attentive,... More

We stayed mid April 2014 for 3 nights. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was very good with local and home-made produce. Plenty of free parking nearby on a quiet road. well situated for touring or walking in to town and hosts ready to advise on local amenities, walks etc.
