The hotel was great! Very spacious and pretty! The breakfast was not so good. Cereal and stale muffins. The coffee was not good either. Good here for the room! There is a Mexican restaurant down the street that services breakfast, but is busy.

Morning Alyce - Thank you very much for reviewing us. We agree that the Inn is GREAT and that Day y Noche is wonderful breakfast spot. Your feedback regarding the breakfast will be noted and we will look into how we can make improvements. Hopefully we will see you again soon!

I stayed at this hotel for a last minute visit to Granville to see my son. I was a little leary since it is supposed to be haunted, but learned the ghosts are mostly in the main lodge. I had a room in the Ty Fy building. It was very comfortable and quite spacious.

Kerrie - We are so glad you decided to give us a try! We agree, the TyFy building, is a great choice. Most of the rooms in this building are quite large. Hopefully we will see you again on your next visit to see your son! All the best, The Buxton Inn

My husband and I decided to enjoy a staycation relatively close to home, and had never been to the Buxton Inn. The Inn is unbelievably beautiful. Our room was so beautiful, and all of the fixtures were classy. Our bed was a medium-firm, super comfortable mattress. There was a Keurig, and a smallish TV. You are able to enjoy dinner...

We stayed here for one night as a birthday getaway. We had decided to stay in room 9, which is haunted. It was not bad as we only had a small encounter during the night with tapping on our feet very lightly (the cat?). Check in was smooth and the clerk walked us to our room and made sure it...

Sitting in the back part listening to Christmas carols was nice. The meal itself was a bit unfortunate. The soup was cold.The french fries were not good. The portions were small. The waitress had a difficult time getting additional items to us (like ketchup, extra onions) I would not be able to recommend the Buxton Inn for brunch.

We reserved the Buxton Inn for some friends and family who were attending our wedding this past August. But I would not recommend that you do the same. We entrusted them with the most important day of our lives and in return, they not only served us a scallop dish without scallops at the rehearsal dinner but also tried to...

Went here for a business lunch, ordered some Hummus, as an appetizer it was overly spicy and had certain spices that were not typical for hummus. It was grainy and not flavorful. Not good. Ordered a grilled Grouper sandwich, it was a meager portion, mostly bun, and was a bit on the fishy smell side, I had smell it a...

Buxton Inn & Granville is absolutely beautiful. Especially with the leaves changing. Really enjoyed learning the history of the Inn and listening to ghost stories from the staff. The food was good. Cheesecake and wine was amazing. We will definitely be back to stay overnight.

Poor customer service, mediocre food, room did not have basic amenities (like a luggage rack, phone, shower shelf), and worst continental breakfast I've ever eaten. Building where we stayed is on a busy street and all we heard was traffic all night. Expressed our dissatisfaction, left a day early due to issues, yet were charged for the full stay.

Mr./Mrs. Flowers - Your stay with us was over Halloween weekend. The evening you checked in was trick or treat night in Granville. Upon showing you to your room your wife commented that she thought the tricker treaters were going to be distributive. At that time we offered to move you to another room even to another building.

We spent a delightful evening at the Inn for a pre-Halloween event. Ghost tours are offered year round I understand, with reservations and many of the staff have seen the ghosts themselves. The orignal part of the Inn was built in 1812 and added to in the 1850's. The Inn now owns 6 hours around it to house guests for...
