“Best B & B.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Simply a top class B&B with beautiful, comfortable rooms. Marvellous breakfast and the hosts could not have been more helpful and pleasant. If you are going to the Peak District this is one not to miss.

We have just returned from a brief, sadly, visit to Buxton to look at Uni for our daughter, and were looking for a reasonably priced bed and breakfast, I booked Cramond house on the 6 reviews posted, and whilst other B&B's had many more remarks, I have always felt it is quality rather than quantity that sets something apart. The house itself is beautiful and has been renovated to a wonderful standard. We have stayed in some beautiful hotels and I have to say that the decor and attention to detail here is better than those. The furnishings are muted but very restful, the bathrooms look pristine. Senga and Alan have added little touches from the handcream, to cashew nuts, crisps, biscuits, various flavoured teas all which make your stay so much better. The breakfast was wonderful and Senga is very conscious that her guests enjoy what they have, even personalising egg requirements!!

Those on channel Fours, Four in a bed, should visit here for a fine example of how a B&B should be run!

Luckily, our daughter was offered a place at Derby Uni when we visited, so no doubt we will be back at Cramond House in the not so distant future!

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms but equally as lovely, although we had the room at the front which had a wonderful of B...

I stayed at Cramond House with my partner Teacupcake. The hospitality shown by Senga and Alan was out of this world. I particularly enjoyed the "merry banter" over breakfast. The size of my "Full English" with Whisky Black Pudding on the morning we left removed the necessity to eat for the rest of the day.

In the immortal words of Lorraine Chase, "I'll give it FOIVE".

We were looking for a reasonably priced bed and breakfast in Buxton, as we really like the Peak District. We found Cramond House and we are so pleased we did! It is a beautifully renovated Victorian house, with large rooms and plenty of atmosphere. It's been recently done up to a very high standard by the owners, Senga and Alan Doig, who have put a huge effort into making the house warm and welcoming. There were so many little touches, too many to mention, that made our stay so enjoyable in spite of some rather wet and blustery weather! We will certainly stay there again next time we go to that area. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Room two was great, nice and quiet with an owl hooting in the trees!

We stayed at Cramond House for two nights whilst in the area to attend a wedding. Senga and Alan made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We were impressed with the house from the start. The couple have made a tremendous job of renovating and restoring it. It is finished to such a high quality throughout. We stayed in room 2, the blue room. It is a generous size, equipped with everything you need or could want. We slept well. We liked the folder with useful local information but particularly appreciated the information about the history of the house.There was a wide choice for breakfast. My husband had a "full English" whilst I had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Delicious. There was no problem about us popping in and out at odd hours to shower and dress for the wedding and the couple even offered to drive us to the venue.
Senga and Alan have developed an excellent establishment, an absolute gem, and they are a lovely warm, welcoming couple. We hope to go back, stay there and spend a bit more time exploring the area.

I stayed overnight at Cramond House on my way to Manchester Airport. (The airport bus leaves from just around the corner) and realised I had found a real gem. Not only is it walking distance from Buxton town centre including the theatre, pubs and restaurants, the inside on the property has recently been completely refurbished with quality fittings yet the owners have retained the original period feel both inside and outside of the building. The owners are a delightful couple and the breakfast was first class. I understand they don't advertise their B and B, preferring to rely on 'word of mouth' and since there were so many 'nice touches' I feel duty bound to 'spread the word' further. If you choose to stay at Cramond House, you won't be disappointed! Excellent!

Room Tip: There are only two rooms, one with an en-suite bath, and the other with an en-suite shower.

Stayed at Cramond House recently as part of a last minute decision to visit Buxton for the G&S Festival. This was one of very few guest houses that had availability at short notice, but wow, what a find! The house has recently undergone a refurbishment and it has been worth every penny. We stayed in room 2 - an extremely spacious and welcoming room; king size bed with luxurious bedding. More than plenty of room, which is so unusual in many guest houses. The bathroom was equally as impressive, with a large walk in shower, and all the toiletries and accessories you could wish for. A welcome tray of sparkling and still water, biscuits, peanuts and chocolates, this was real luxury. Thank you to Senga and Alan, the most hospitable hosts - you have a B&B to be proud of. I would encourage anyone visiting Buxton to consider Cramond House before anywhere else.
