“Lovely, traditional bed and breakfast perfectly situated”
Reviewed 10 July 2011

I booked this bed and breakfast on the spur of the moment as a late booking. Upon arrival we were met by the proprietor Dave who was cutting the grass. He made us very welcome and showed us to our room which was a lovely, large, twin bedded room with large flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a clean en-suite bathroom.
The breakfast the following morning was served by Dave, looking resplendent in his smart white shirt and bow tie. There was a choice of cereals, fresh strawberries, grapefruit, bananas and fruit juice. Breakfast itself was lovely, hot and tasty with quality products used.
I cannot commend this bed and breakfast highly enough, it is traditional, clean and very friendly with the ever attentive Dave to help you in any way he can. There is parking and also a nice seating area with a lovely ornamental pond with some large fish, It is perfectly situated, just a 2 minute walk from the shops, restaurants and pubs of Buxton.

Room Tip: Pre book, it's popular.

I arrived in Buxton on the off chance....I asked around town about a good B&B and Kingscroft came up time and time again. No dis-credit to others..(I did stay 1 night somewhere else which was very nice, as Kingscroft was full!) and as said in reviews before.. there are no lies there. Dave runs a fantastic B&B, I felt like I was family or friend, of which I am now certainlt the later. The house is a perfect example of a Victorian building with huge bedrooms and equally large guest areas including lounge, dining room, parking and garden. Dave can't do enough for you, he is a genuine person with everyone's best interests at heart. The house is an ecletic mix of tradition and character, made good by its owner and he is on the doorstep of not only the town of Buxton, but also the vast and amazing area of the Peak district with plenty of infomation about all goings on of the surrounding area. I can not express enough how glad I was to stumble upon Dave and his B&B, and the as mentioned here before, the breakfast is secong to none....my full english consisted of REAL sausages...lovely bacon, fresh mushrooms and tomatoes....my point being no tin food here, and all at a very reasonable rate considering what he offers. I have frequented many guest houses from John o'Groats to Lands End and I would love to here from somebody who could honestly tell me that they have experienced a similar non formality, whilst at the same time being made to feel special (Dave where's a bow tie with a white shirt to serve you breakfast....but it is not formal in any sense... it just works!) because this B&B is not a B&B..it's something else....what I can't quite put my finger on...but one thing I do know is, is that I will be most certainly be back...if not for the Peak District...(how you ask?!?) because Dave is equally as magnificant!!!! a top, top place to rest your head...I assure you.
Keep it up Dave, more of the same please......Howard

Room Tip: I advise to pre-book....not many to the pound!!

My partner and I stayed with another couple for 2 nights. The rooms were a good standard, comfortable and well furnished. The place has character. The breakfast was surperb and Dave, the host, was great. We went to Buxton to celebrate a birthday and Kingscroft added to the occasion!

This B&B is a must!!!! The rooms are nice and spacious with lots of character, very interesting, was like visiting a museum. The house being just like the host in terms of amazing character. You couldn't meet a more finer host than Dave who was very friendly, welcoming, and extremely attentive to everyone's needs. The room we stayed in was so quiet that I had trouble getting up for breakfast. Breakfast at the weekend had a small surprise which made me chuckle......... :-)

If TV's your thing, then you'll not be dissappointed with the huge flat screen, although we had no need for it, due to the beautiful town and surrounding countryside.

We found this B&B by chance, and were very satisfied with it. The room and the en suite were of reasonable size, the furniture had style. The flat screen TV was by far the largest I've ever seen in a B&B. There's also a DVD library guests can use for free. On top of tea, coffee and hot chocolate we also got two bottles of water and some biscuits. The breakfast was huge. Of the three B&Bs we stayed at during our holiday this was the best and the cheapest.

My husband and I stayed here several times during summer 2008. My husband was being relocated and we were looking at the area and property. We were so pleased we picked Kingscroft, Dave and Gill were just lovely, they were full of local information and really made us feel at home from day one.

The house itself is full of character and all the rooms are unique, on one visit we had a room with a four poster bed, all the rooms we stayed in were well kept and individually furnished with victorian furniture. The hospitality tray is always well stocked with fruit juice, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sweets, biscuits etc and it is filled up every day too.

Breakfast is always something to look forward to, there is so much on offer, cereal, fruit juice, full english breakfast, pots of tea and coffee and toast with jams, butter and marmalade, enough to keep you going all day. Though the menu does have lighter options available.

This is a very elegant house with a warm homely feel. Thanks so much to Dave and Gill, your local knowledge was a great help to us and your hospitality was second to none.
