Griff House is THE place to stay in Buxton. Martin and Kathryn are very warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts. They are happy to pass on local knowledge and loan their guide books. The rooms are lovely and the beds the comfiest ever. Breakfast is delicious and Kathryn's home made granola and preserves are to die for! We could not... More

This B&B was immaculate. Our room was large. The owners were friendly and helpful about telling us where to visit and where to eat. We loved the homemade muesli and granola as well as the choice of cooked breakfast and vegetarian.

We stayed in room 4 which is very spacious, well decorated and has a generous bathroom. Heavy curtains keep the light out and the warmth in. Nice touches like the fridge with fresh milk for the hospitality tray, a lovely change from those little plastic cups of plastic milk. We took a bottle of wine with us and the owners... More

Everything we were looking for in a B&B. Clean, good location, friendly knowledgeable hosts and very good food. Our room was spacious with good views to the hills, had a very comfortable bed and was well equipped including tea tray and fridge. We were very well looked after - Martin even offered to dry our boots!

Griff House...we had a lovely stay at this B&B over Easter and we are truly glad we booked. It met our very high and exacting expectations. The location is very good, you can walk into town or it's a 2min drive there. So you are close to restaurants for your evening meal and you can also do like we did... More

Excellent service in Griff house. Excellent location for the town and for accessing wonderful walks. We were very well looked after, from lovely breakfasts to helpful information on local walks. Rooms are clean and fresh and modern and very comfortable to stay in. Griff house made our short 2 night stay in Buxton a really enjoyable, memorable one.

Just simply sublime, Martin and Kathryn are truly hospitable, Martin even came out to help with the luggage! The rooms are very big, cosy and to a very high standard, you won't be disappointed. The location is very conveniently located near the town, so getting back late after a knees up is very easy.... no taxi required. You must try... More

I read the reviews and the place does not disappoint. It is a wonderful house and has been well furnished and decorated and the location is good too. What however really makes it stand out above other B&Bs is the warm friendly service provided by the owner and his wife. He even called me a day before my expected arrival... More
