Travelled with our 8 month old. Martin made us feel at home and went out of his way to accommodate our requests. The check in was easy, the rooms were comfortable, the breakfast was tasty, but most of all it was Martin's hospitality that made it a relaxing stay!

We found Griff House through Trip advisor while looking for accommodation in Buxton. The reviews were excellent and so we booked to stay for a couple of nights. Martin and his wife were really nice and extremely helpful. The room was immaculate and contained everything you would need with a lovely comfy bed. Instead of those little cartons of milk...

Just like to let anybody thinking of a stay in Buxton to put Griff House at the very top of their accommodation list. Martin keeps the place spotlessly clean and nothing seemed too much trouble when we had any questions or special requests. Breakfast is a feast and again nothing seemed to phase Martin who was only too glad to...

Stayed for three nights and found this B&B warm, clean and comfortable. Host Martin was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. The house is ideally situated for all you need in the immediate and wider area. Excellent breakfasts. Would be our first choice on any return visit to Buxton. No hesitation in strongly recommending Griff House.

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend in October. Before our arrival, Martin was very kind in arranging delivery of some flowers for the room. On arrival, he was happy to recommend some local restaurants and bars to visit. The breakfasts were fantastic, with very tasty granola (they also very kindly gave us the recipe!). I would definitely...

Stayed here 3 nights, and was well cared for by Martin. My relatively small room was well appointed, and always clean. The breakfast was generous, and good. Parking is limited/tedious, but not a huge issue. Martin was helpful, and the experience was positive. I wanted to stay here because of a high TA ranking, and it was not a disappointment....

Thank you for your review of Griff House, it was a pleasure to have you stay and we are pleased you enjoyed the breakfasts. Griff House has a small car park and there is plenty of on-street parking directly outside the house, so parking is usually not an issue - your experience may have coincided with the school run, when...

Griffs House is a B&B operated by Martin and his wife. My husband, Chris and I have stayed there for the 2nd time since we were in Buxton. The B&B is immaculate and the friendly hosts were commendable. We had a light English breakfast for the 1st day and scramble eggs with bacon on the second day. Buxton is a...

I've stayed here 3 times now and this time was as good as the others. Centrally located and close to the local amenities this B&B is extremely comfortable and welcoming. The owners are very nice and importantly in comparison to some other places they are incredibly flexible and accommodating. I've required an earlier breakfast on several occasions which has always...

The star of the show at Griff House is the owner, Martin Gilson, who is very responsive, intelligent, and personable. He's also a great breakfast cook. If you're a coffee connoisseur ask Martin to make it in his Italian super-automatic instead of settling for the pot. No wonder this is the highest-ranked B&B in Buxton! The house is more-than-adequate and...

Thank you for reviewing Griff House and for your kind comments. You were in Room 5 which is the warmest of our rooms, on the second floor it also receives direct sunshine through the afternoon and evening. As we're 1,000 feet above sea level it's not often that visitors to Buxton find it too hot! But as you say, you...
