“Visiting relatives”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Martin was so obliging with our check in time and very accommodating. He carried our luggage up the stairs and made sure everything was perfect. We had to leave very early on our second day there to fly back to Canada so he gave my cousins a key so that they could come in at 6 am to pick us up without waking up the house with the doorbell. It worked out very well for all. We did have one delicious breakfast there in the lovely dining room.

Room Tip: We chose a room with 2 singles for my sister and myself.

My friend and I booked Griff house for a night so we could visit Buxton. I seriously do not think we could've found anywhere nicer to stay. Very well located near to town & a lovely walk through the park.
The room we had was lovely, well decorated & spotless. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up - it was only the lure of breakfast that got me out of the bed!
The breakfast was simply excellent - I especially liked the oatcake as we struggle to buy them where I live. Homemade jams were a bonus as was the choice of 3 juices!
Everything about Griff House is well thought out and you can tell the owners really do care about you enjoying your stay.
I loved this place and hope to return - I wouldn't stay anywhere else

Oh and I fell in love with the stair carpet - simply magnificent!

Look no further if you are looking for a great B and B. Lovely room - comfy bed, fluffy towels. Whole place was spotless. Breakfast was great. 5 minute walk to town with parking on street. Couldn't fault this B and B

We spent a wonderful week with Martin and Kathryn. Our room was superb, comfortable and spotless. Our breakfasts couldn't be bettered. Martin gave us some written instructions to view beautiful areas around the Peak District which we found and enjoyed. We celebrated my birthday with them in their lounge. They organized a cake and coffee after our daughter contacted them from Australia. One of the best B&Bs we've stayed at. Graeme and Vi.

Our room was very spacious and warm, the bathroom had a bath as well as a shower which is always a bonus. Tea making bits and bobs, water and biscuits all provided so everything was provided. t.v as well. Very close to town but even though our room faced the road there was not a lot of traffice noise and we slept really well. huge bed. Lovely breakfast.

First rate B&B where you feel at home. Martin is an excellent host, and Kathryn makes some fantastic granola, musli mix and marmalade, with other home made preserves to hand at to complement the very good breakfast. Rooms are spotless and nothing is too much trouble, we will certainly be recommending Grif House to anyone wanting to stay in the Buxton area.

Wow. Fantastic B&B...Immaculate property, well laid out rooms and lovely little touches, like a
sewing kit and shoe shine, water and plently of tea and coffee supplied.
High quality bedding and breakfast crockery. Breakfast was well cooked and very tasty. We only met Martin during out stay, he was so friendly and gave us some fab advice on where to eat in the evenings..The Cheshire Cheese a local pub sold the most delicious meals.Cannot wait to return.:0) Thanks again.Alison, Trina and Nicole.
