This was the second time we have stayed at Griff House and hope to stay there again in the future. This time we were accommpanied by our two grown up sons. On arrival Martin made us very welcome and showed us to large and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was very tasty and I especially enjoyed Kathryn's Granola. We enjoyed our conversations on football with Martin. We'll forgive him for being a Leeds supporter.

Hi Gill,

Thank you for reviewing Griff House. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and felt welcome and comfortable. Kathryn's granola is fast becoming legendary!

Had two nights at Griff House in early April 2013. Comfortable, clean and excellent value for money. Martin and Kathryn offer a very restful B&B - probably the best I have been to .Highly recommended. Restaurants recommended by Martin in Buxton were excellent. A most enjoyable short break.

Room Tip: Myself and friends used 4 rooms - all equally comfortable

Griff House ticked all the boxes for us. A very pleasant welcome by Martiin who took charge of our cases and escorted us up to our room. He offered to move his car so that we could park on the small car park to the side of the building.
The bedroom was beautifully equipped with new furniture and fittings, a useful shower (which we had specifically requested) and (as we later discovered) a very comfortable bed.
Next morning we were greeted in the breakfast room by Katherine, the lady of the house. She served an excellent full English breakfast which sustained us throughout the day, until we went out for a substantial evening meal. She had also made the muesli and a variety of preserves. A major point in this day and age was that the toast was served freshly prepared, in a toast rack.
Next mornng Martin offered to collect our cases whilst we were eating breakfast. All in all we thought that this guest house provides excellent value for the money and we would heartily recommend it. Note that they only accept cash or personal/travellers cheques.

Room Tip: There is no lift but Martin was very happy to sort out the room allocation so as elderly guests, we...

My husband and I stayed at Griff House for 3 nights in the front facing room on the first floor. The room was really lovely; bright and spacious with a huge and comfy bed. Everything felt new. Water pressure was excellent - always looked forward to taking a shower! Breakfast is a very filling English breakfast (too much for me as a girl!). Kathryn also makes the yummiest home made granola which she generously provided the recipe for :) Overall we really enjoyed our stay and Kathryn and Martin make wonderful hosts.

While staying in Buxton for the annual International G&S Festival last August, our family was so fortunate to stay with Martin and Kathryn. Their B&B (Griff House) is simply charming, breakfast's are wonderful, and their hospitality was unparalleled. Comfortable beds in lovely rooms, with bright clean WC's... we were left wanting for nothing! Thank you so much, from Arne, Erik, Meghan & Tyronne! We would love to visit again if you'll have us! :)

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.
