Griff House is in a great location, close to the town for drinks and evening meals and an ideal spot to start a walk in the peaks. Spotlessly clean, great breakfasts and helpful and friendly host. The room was spacious with beautiful cotton bedding and fluffy white towels, every detail thought of. Honestly cannot find fault with this guest house... More

The room was good, the breakfast was fine but Griff's USP is Martin himself, who could not have been more helpful. We will definitely come again - as long as not too many people read this review ! Griff's is very convenient for the Buxton festival, walks in the beautiful landscape of the Peak District, visits to Chatsworth...

My daughter and I spent two nights at Griff House and absolutely loved it. The house is spotless, the breakfast delicious and we really liked the way the owners have taken pains to be environmentally friendly. It's a good location to visit Buxton and an easy drive to lots of hiking, Lyme Park and Chatsworth. We hope to go back.

Stayed 3 nights in August in this lovely B & B. In a quiet road but just a short walk into Buxton centre. Spacious room, with a lovely bay window area to sit after long days out. Very clean and well equipped. Martin is a friendly and welcoming host, the breakfasts were delicious, especially the home made granola, muesli and... More

Our room was just perfect! Spacious with a lovely view, comfortable bed that had crisp, clean sheets and perfect pillows. The bath was well stocked with everything you'd need... More

Lovely b&b in easy walking distance to the centre of Buxton. Furnishings are modern and cosy. You can tell the owners have not cut corners, even the bedding is really soft and luxurious. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and you felt very welcome from the word go. Breakfast choice was ample including home made cereals.

I was really pleased that Martin uses the very best and local ingredients and produce, it makes a difference, breakfasts are marvellous. He's extremely helpful with info about all the attractions too. Comfortable lounge available for all guests, and pretty garden with seating in good weather. Roomy rooms, well furnished and bathroom facilities all finished to a high standard.

We stayed two nights at Griff House and were very impressed with all aspects of our stay. We came for the Buxton Festival and found the B&B in a lovely leafy area of town approximately 10minutes walk to the Opera House and gardens. Martin was an excellent host, coming to the car to help us with our luggage, providing information... More
