IT was nicely situated in Town. Rooms were fine. Only some little suggestions: it would be nice to have a chair in the upper bedroom in front of the table with mirror. Also in the double bedroom. It would be nice to have more things to hang the bathroom towels. In the kitchen would it be handy to have a lid on the frying pan. Apart from these wishes, we really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The owners were really nice and gave us a lovely welcome !! Thank you very much!!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Though not for someone with mobility problems as there are a few flights of stairs. Very comfortable. Great bathroom and comfy bed. Very centrally located and great to have seasonal parking permit. A bit noisy with traffic outside.

lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful and cosy apartment. Right in centre of high street everything was at easy distance. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it on the dates for which we had made the booking and Lorraine was kind enough to let us reschedule our stay instead of letting the money go to waste. Kevin was very helpful and nice when we met him and explained everything we needed to know straight up. The easiest part was keys pick up and drop off. The apartment is spacious and across three floors so kind of fun. If I visit Buxton again and place is available I am definitely booking it again.
