“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

An excellent guest house within a short walk of everything Buxton has to offer. The house is warm, nicely furnished and decorated, with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was well cooked and we were made to feel welcome by the hosts. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

A warm welcome from Martin and lovely offer to help with our bags. Led to our room which was of an excellent standard, not to mention the little bits and bobs including, shoe polish, mending kits and cotton buds etc. what a lovely touch!
A good nights sleep followed by the wonderful breakfast including Kathryn's home made granola and a fabulous cooked breakfast. We especially enjoyed the derbyshire oatcake which complimented the food tremendously!
Would highly recommend to all travellers to buxton to this charming b&b.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which had a great shower and was of a high standard and was very quiet.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Easter hols with our kids of 15 and 12 and had rooms 7 and 8 on the top floor. Not connecting but we had the floor to ourselves and felt like we had a proper suite. Also nice to borrow DVDs and games from the guest lounge and watch/play in the privacy of our own room in the evening.

Both rooms are really comfortable and have nice modern decor.. Fridge (silent) in room great for keeping fruit & drinks fresh. Griff House is on a quiet road but a short walk to the centre of Buxton.

Martin and Kathryn are very welcoming and we would echo previous comments on the heartiness of the breakfast and the delicious homemade granola. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank them for their hospitality.

Griff house is a lovely b&b with two wonderful hosts. Our stay was a bit of a trip down memory lane and was made even more special by the welcome and the service provided, both were excellent. This reflects the comments made to date. Good luck and thank you Martin & Katherine :)

We stayed here for two nights over 15th and 16th March in room 8. The room was wonderful, tastefully decorated, spotless and spacious. It faces the road, but despite being only a few minutes walk from plenty of pubs and places to eat, was very peaceful with no noise from the road at all, and a great view to the hills. Katheryn and Martin are perfects hosts (I even had a birthday card from them), always there for any advice or anything else you need, but respectful of your privacy at the same time. Breakfast was too yummy - what to choose? Katheryn's home made jam and granola were great, as was the full english (locally sourced). We tried the veggie Derbyshire oatcake version and this was also really lovely, perfect before a days walking in the hills. Thank you for a great stay - We wouldn't bother to even look at anywhere else to stay next time we come to Buxton. Dawn and Andy

Room Tip: Room 8 spacious with bath and shower, and great view. This room can be a twin or made up to a kingsi...

Absolutely perfect
We spent two nights in the wonderful Griff House B&B on Easter and we highly recommend it.
The bedroom and the bathroom were spotless, perfect clean and especially modern due to the refurbish works made in the property. Martin and Kathryn were absolutely fantastic, welcoming and provided us with advices for our time in Peak District. Breakfast was superb and we could see the personal touch in the delicious home made granola and jams available. The location also is perfect as restaurants and pubs are less than 10 minutes walking so you do not need to take your car for dinner.
To sum up, a great experience that ticks all the boxes ...and even more than this.
Finally we would like to take the opportunity to thank Martin and Kathryn for all their kindness and you can be sure that if we are around we will visit you again.
Best regards

This guest house was great. The rooms were clean and spacious and the owners were really friendly. Their breakfast was hearty (good cooked brekkie - even veggie option) and very tasty (I think that the owner even makes her own cereals). This was an excellent place to stay and would thoroughly recommend it. It is very conveient - just a short walk to the centre of Buxton. I will definitely stay here if I am in the town again.

Room Tip: An excellent view from the rooms at the top all over Buxton and the surrounding countryside! Sorry...
