  • "We absolutely loved the Rooftop - it was beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed."

    The location was excellent. The information pre-arrival was detailed and recommendations on parking were very well received. The only slight negative was because of the hot tub, it was a tight squeeze to get 7 of us on the roof terrace.

    The Rooftop is a beautiful apartment with all mod cons. It could not have been better.

  • "The Rooftop is a superb property in a very convenient location."

    We had a great time and would definitely return. A few small niggles which might seem really picky but hopefully is constructive. There were 3 of us staying and we were only provided with 3 sets of towels. I think an additional hand towel in each of the bathrooms should have been provided (bath mats were provided). We bought a couple to use during our stay. The towels that were provided also all had bleach marks on them. The towel ring in the downstairs bathroom was broken, as was the airer in the kitchen. The utensils in the kitchen weren’t of great quality either, such as the peeler and pizza wheel which bent when using. The knives were also not very good but a sharpener was provided. The placemats and tables in the lounge/kitchen area could do with replacing as they weren’t of a great standard. Some of the crockery was put away dirty so maybe this needs checking a bit more thoroughly. Food was left in the freezer too (ice lollies and garlic bread) which ought to have been removed. There were also condiments left in the cupboard which is fine but we threw away the mayonnaise as it should be refrigerated! The grill pan was filthy when we arrived (I did clean it during or stay). The main light in the twin room wasn’t working either. Whilst all this might sound very negative, The Rooftop is a really lovely place to stay, extremely warm and comfortable. The beds were super comfy and the hot tub was amazing. The weather was pretty awful whilst we were there but it didn’t matter as we were very happy relaxing in the apartment. The lounge upstairs is a real treat, huge and very comfortable for us. The apartment is spacious and well equipped, in a very convenient location to explore Buxton. We had tapas at Santiago, pasta at St Moritz and a delicious meal at Simply Thai.. all within a 2 minute walk of the apartment. You wouldn’t go hungry in Buxton! All in all, I would certainly recommend it as a place to stay!

  • "Great property very central to Buxton town."

    The flat was very clean and spacious great 2nd living room with a very comfy sofa. Please note there are many stairs to climb to get to the flat so if you have mobility issues this may cause you a problem. Was able to check in early which was a big bonus having travelled 3 1/2 hours by car, Very handy to have a parking space right outside the flat and plenty of free on street parking close by.

    Absolutely no unwanted noise from the town but right in the centre for convenience. Perfect location for Buxton town and Pools cave/ Solomon’s temple. Lovely helpful owners if required. All shops very handy. We will return hopefully and I have recommended it to various friends. A couple of pretty night lights on the roof garden area could be a little suggestion - but no changes needed. We had a fabulous time. Thank you

  • "A clean, modern flat conveniently set in the centre of Buxton."

    Really close to lovely restaurants and the shops. We really enjoyed using the hot tub on the roof (once we’d worked out how to heat it up!). The Buxton pavilion gardens were beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the surrounding area including Pooles cavern and the Corbar Cross. A lovely setting for a short break, thank you!

    One parking space (the owner was very helpful with our key problem!). The children particularly enjoyed the upstairs lounge, and the roof top hot tub was enjoyed by all of us. Ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District, and Buxton's many attractions. Unfortunately, as Yorkshire half term a week early, some of the places we wanted to visit were not open.

    It had everything we needed. Great location and was very clean and comfortable. Our only gripe was checkout time is very early (9am on a Sunday). 11am would be more reasonable and in line with most other places and would still give 5 hours to get the cottage ready for the next guests at 4pm.

  • "The location of the property was perfect, the kitchen was well equipped and the hot tub was a great bonus etc."

    Unfortunately the cleanliness was disappointing, for me, that let this property down. We found some of the previous guests food in the freezer, very off putting indeed. Crumbs of food in the kitchen cupboards and in the fridge itself. I don’t want to run the place down - because it has great potential, after traveling 7 hours that day it was just disappointing to have to start cleaning before I put our food in the fridge etc. Again unfortunately we noticed, towards the end of our weeks stay, that the fridge was not working to full capacity and unfortunately some of our food had gone off. But having said all that we did enjoy our time away and Buxton itself is a wonderful place to visit.

  • "Overall, excellent accommodation and location with the rooftop hot tub and parking a bonus."

    Buxton is a great place with lots of fantastic bars and restaurants and places to visit. Would have been 5 stars if not for 2 items: A) (not owners fault) - Sykes still have policy of 9am departure for leaving. This is out dated as other companies have moved back to 10am. We left the night before as getting 2 children out for this time on top of everything else would have meant a very early start! B) Matresses were uncomfortable/poor quality. Had to sleep on the old single matress that was comfortable, if not ideal.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at The Rooftop in Buxton."

    We are a family of five and found the accommodation spacious and very clean. The property was uncluttered, well-furnished, with excellent facilities. The owner lives very close by and proved to be warm, welcoming, attentive, and very helpful. The Rooftop, as one might expect, is accessed via two flights of stairs in addition to being split over two levels, which may not suit everyone's access needs. The ceilings are generally very high, although the upstairs rooms have sloped eaves and some head-bump hazards for the tall among us. The location in central Buxton was superb for access to food, sight-seeing, and shopping. The roads are busy, but night-time noise was not too bad. The lockable parking space that comes with the property is an excellent bonus. We greatly enjoyed the Rooftop's signature roof terrace, which has a dining table and hot tub. It's very private touch of luxury. It is possible to smell food cooking from the restaurant below, but it's not overwhelming or unwelcome. The flat was very comfortable - beds and sofas very soft, dining tables, chairs, and bar stools very practical. The kitchen was well-equipped and convenient. We found the flat, particularly the uppermost bedroom very warm, even with the thermostat set low, but it was not a problem. In short I would recommend the Rooftop as a good base to stay in to explore Buxton and The Peaks.

About the location

BUXTON

Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
