Had a 5 night break here. What a great room, old Victorian house, so the room was big and high, the owners had a complete refurbish, and boy did they do a great job, can't fault this at all, one of the best I've stayed in. Very quiet even with the window open. 5 minute walk into Buxton town, go... More

This is a really wonderful B&B where lots of little touches make your stay very homely and comfortable. The family room was great for the 3 of us (our son is 6) and there are nice thick blinds for a good night's sleep! The owners are kind and generous and the breakfast is delicious. Easy to walk into town too.... More

The B&B is very nice and nicely decorated. We found it with no problem, it is within walking distance of the town centre where we visited the sights and went for dinner. The owners were lovely, welcoming, and offered plenty of advice and recommendations for things to do. The breakfast was very nice as well, they asked if we wanted... More

My husband ,daughter and I stayed for 2 nights during the festival. Right from the start both Martin and Kathryn made us very welcome. The location is perfect, peaceful and easy walking distance to the town centre. The beds were extremely comfortable. I loved the homemade granola for and cooked breakfast. We were very grateful that an unusual request was... More

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
