"Good location"

We had a great week in Buxton. The apartment is centrally located with lots to see and do in walking distance. Recommend Poole's Cavern and the Dome in the University building. Great meal at St. Moritz restaurant nearby. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation with a nice homely feel. Even in August we had no problem finding parking space right outside the property and used the 2 parking permits that come with the apartment.

"Absolutely superb"

This was a fantastic apartment. Staying with my wife, 2 daughters, their partners, 14 month old grandson, there was plenty of room. Everywhere was beautifully furnished, well laid out and spotlessly clean, The booking was very efficient, the welcome was warm and the facilities were excellent. The location couldn't be better, opposite the Opera House and park, and very close to restaurants and shops.
It really was faultless. Suitable for adults and slightly surprisingly, for the toddler too. Quiet, sophisticated and really comfortable

"Fabulous apartment in central location"

Really enjoyed our stay in the apartment - lots of lovely touches. The beds were comfortable - a bonus with the two residents parking permits - parked right outside for the whole weekend. Good introduction by owner on arrival. The welcome hamper - full of useful goodies!

"Spacious apartment with nice luxury touches"

Grand apartment, nice decor, wifi that worked, fresh flowers and goody tray, felt like a hotel.

Only minor drawback is no dishwasher, but for a shortish stay that's bearable!

"Fantastic Location"

A beautiful apartment in the centre of Buxton. Very well equipped and certainly the cleanest place we have ever stayed! Warm and loads of hot water. Very spacious living and bedrooms with Georgian features. Loved the shutters.
Owner, Jackie, could not have been more helpful.
