Great b & b, in a wonderful setting overlooking the lake in Buxton. The room was bright and very clean, with a wonderful view and lovely furnishings. Breakfast was a feast, particularly the summer breakfast of toasted granola, poached pears and natural yogurt. Didn't want to leave!!

Room Tip: The room we had overlooked the lake, and it was well worth the supplement. We had the best evening...

Great views across the park from the top floors, very clean and tidy throughout, friendly welcome upon arrival, excellent food and service at breakfast, short stroll into the wonderful centre of Buxton. Only misses on a "5/5 excellent" due to the noisy plumbing, our toilet cistern (room 14) had a horrid whine / buzz when the ball cock was close to its closed position.

Room Tip: Don't have rooms 14 (noisy loo) or 13 (no windows only skylights)

Dear Sir/Madam

Many thanks for your very positive review.

We would very much appreciate that if a client finds something they feel needs to be fixed - if they could please mention it to us at the time and we will fix it. During your stay you made no mention of this at any time. Maintenance of any property is always an ongoing situation - but we do react to all requests for assistance.

We do show clearly what all our rooms are like on our Virtual Tours and also mention this at the time of booking if by telephone.

Clients can thus book exactly the room they require by our online booking system - as each room is outlined, and supported by a virtual tour of each room (with the exception of Room 10 - which we illustrate on the slideshow sequence.)

Your reference to Room 13 is actually incorrect as this is a Single Room with a side view window aspect of the Park. The room you were referring to should have specified Room 15. - which is an attic style room with two skylight windows and can be viewed on the Virtual Tour Link on our website.

Yours sincerely

Gerard & Maggi Heelan

My wife and I arrived on Sunday later than ETA for a one night stay. We were welcomed by Gerard who took time to give us a quick in-depth verbal overview of the local history and politics and some places worth seeing in Buxton. Gerard suggested some eateries (and one to maybe avoid) late on a Sunday night. The premises have been very tastefully refurbished in the Victorian style and our room was spacious, clean and functional with a very nice view of the lake. There were plenty of choices for breakfast and the food was of a high standard.The Waitress/Waiter Service was friendly and efficient. It is very much a family run business. It is very interesting to read a personal summary of the family's formation and its remarkable journey to the present time
The business is well run right from the booking stage to departure and we would definitely like to stay again when next in the Buxton area

Booked this guest house for my senior parents and elder sister who wanted a relaxing few days in Buxton. Website was great as it shows pictures of the individual bedrooms and availabity for each. Maggie was helpful and informative in helping us book right up to 10pm at night! My mom is extremely fussy when it comes to accommodation and cleanliness but she couldn't speak highly enough of the high standards at Roseleigh. Both Maggie & Gerard had obviously been fantastic, attentive hosts as my parents both relayed stories and conversations they'd enjoyed with them. The guest house is superbly located for all of Buxton's attractions and has beautiful views over the lake and gardens. Would definitely recommend.

Met with old friends in Buxton for a short break and stayed at the Roseleigh B & B. The Roseleigh is an excellent place to stay whilst there. The standard of the rooms is second to none, the breakfast provided set us up for the day!! The bed linen and towels provided are better than any 5* Hotel, Maggie and Gerard where very helpful in suggesting walks and places of interest for us.
The rest of the staff where also very pleasant and polite.
I would well recommend the Roseleigh for staying in the Buxton area!!

We have just returned from a very relaxing couple of days in Buxton and Roseleigh was the perfect place to unwind following the weddings of both of our sons 12 weeks apart. As mentioned by other reviewers Roseleigh is very professionally run and a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Our room overlooked the lake and it says much that we were very happy to read/chill in our room for an hour or two rather than merely using it as a place to sleep. Breakfast excellent and staff very gracious - all in all an experience that many hotels would struggle to achieve. Will no doubt return if we can find an excuse to see a show at the Opera House! Thanks Maggi and Gerard

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the lake are worth seeking out

We booked through the Information Centre in Buxton and were lucky enough to get the second to last room on the night. It was a lovely, nicely appointed, comfortable, spacious room on the ground floor with all the things one would like to have but don't always get for the amount paid. Advice was freely given in relation to local attractions and places to dine. The breakfast was wonderful.
