Good Hotel Guide Review

Gazing across the lake in Buxton’s ‘elegant, well-wooded main park’, the Victorian B&B’s ‘fine premises’ earned a return visit and more praise from trusted Guide correspondents. Welcoming, ‘helpful’ owners, Gerard and Maggi Heelan, two former tour leaders well versed in the charms of the Peak District, provided informed local assistance during ‘another excellent stay’. Roseleigh’s bedrooms – front ones overlook the Pavilion Gardens – offer traditional decoration with richly patterned curtains; some with wingback chairs or antique-style brass bed, alongside thoughtful touches from bathroom flannels to ‘non-thieves coat-hangers’. The ‘very useful sitting room’, with warm red hues, leather sofa and armchairs, is stocked with guides, maps and history books to plan next day’s adventures. Add in well-regarded breakfasts with a hurrah for the bacon if not the foil-wrapped butter, and this is a good base for exploring the area from Chatsworth, 30 minutes’ drive away, to Haddon Hall and Castleton’s caverns, or Georgian Buxton itself: ‘We were there during the festival when they were full, very busy, and very good. We quickly booked the same four nights for the following year.’ (Stephen and Pauline Glover)

Guest comments

'After yet another visit we once again strongly endorse the GHG entry. It’s attractively and richly - and colourfully - decorated in keeping with the traditional Victorian style of the building and the area, with lots of carpeting and soft furnishings. Their business card is glossily and stylishly produced with a relative mass of information. ' - Stephen & Pauline Glover - July, 2019
'Another excellent stay. Fine premises elegantly decorated with an attractive, convenient location overlooking the elegant well wooded main park in the centre of Buxton Very helpful pleasant attentive owners. Lots of nice details including proper “non thieves” coat hangers. Good breakfast - excellent bacon. Very comfortable and useful sitting room. ' - Stephen & Pauline Glover - July, 2017
