I can only echo what previous reviewer "keithmorley" says about his recent experience at "Griff House", and the professional but personal attention from Martin and Kathryn prior to, and during his stay, That was exactly our experience when we stayed at "Griff House" for two nights (15th & 16th April).
It was our first time at "Griff House" (hopefully not the last), and I'm not surprised that Martin and Kathryn are ranked as No.1 B+B provider in Buxton on TripAdvisor.
My wife and I stayed in Room 1 on the first-floor, a large room with double & twin beds. Very comfortable. A really nice "extra" that you don't find in most B+Bs (or hotels even) was a small fridge with a jug of fresh milk for your tea and coffee, which you can also use to chill your own drinks. There were bottles of Buxton water in the room too, replenished daily.
Previous reviewers have commented about the tasty "Griff House" breakfasts. I'm a fussy eater, especially when it comes to fry-ups, but the cooked breakfasts were appetising - fat and grease free - with locally sourced ingredients, and I loved Kathryn's home-made museli and granola.
We sampled the "Cheshire Cheese" and the "Old Sun Inn" for evening meals (both near to each other in the High Street and only a ten minute walk from Griff House). On both occasions we dined in the early evening, but we found the food better and the service quicker at the "Old Sun Inn", which would be our personal recommendation for good pub grub and a cosy, friendly atmosphere, within easy walking distance of "Griff House".
