Hen weekend
We've just returned from my daughter's hen weekend. The accommodation over two floors was first class, very spacious, modern and clean. It is within walking distance of all amenities and is the perfect base for visiting the Peak District. There was one parking space but plenty more on street parking and long stay car parks at very reasonable prices. We would definitely stay there again.

A superb apartment in the heart of Buxton. Exceeded all expectations for a holiday rental - it has been refurbished to the highest of standards and is such a comfortable base for a holiday. The cleanliness was exceptional and the owners had thought of absolutely everything and clearly invested in quality furniture and products to ensure visitors have a fabulous and stress free holiday. Howard and his son were incredibly responsive to any queries and sorted them immediately without delay or fuss. Superb location also being walking distance to so many great restaurants and bars. All in all a fabulous week, thank you !

Spacious, clean, comfortable stay in the heart of Buxton with signature rooftop terrace
The Rooftop is situated in the heart of Buxton and excellent for accessing the town itself and the wider Derbyshire Peaks. We are a family of five and spent a wonderful week here. The flat was clean, comfortable, spacious, with excellent facilities. The rooftop terrace has a dining table and hot-tub big enough for four which is a lovely touch of luxury. The owner lives just round the corner and was warm, welcoming, and attentive. The parking space available with the flat is a super bonus. Access to the flat is through several doors and up two flights of stairs, which may not suit everyone's access needs. I would happily recommend The Rooftop for a family needing a base to explore Derbyshire, or experience a touch of luxury accompanied by the convenience of living in a town centre. Traffic is busy and the streets are a bit noisy at night, but the flat feels 'above it all' and provides comfort and convenience.

Amazing Apartment!
We have just returned from a fabulous week in Buxton staying at The Rooftop. Situated in the centre of town with the added bonus of a parking space it is perfect for groups or families to have a relaxing break away. There is so much space for everyone to get together and hang out, and equally enough room for everyone to get privacy if they need it. I love to cook and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can think of to cook up a storm and serve on the lovely dining table. The hot tub on the roof just tops it all off! If you decide to leave The Rooftop during your stay location wise Buxton is really well placed to visit many areas in the Peak District, or if you prefer you can visit one of the many pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. If I could give more stars I would!

Fantastic apartment right in the heart of Buxton
The Rooftop is a jewel. Location is bang-on. It is situated in the centre of town, across the road from the impressive Pavilion Gardens. There are at least five restaurants within a three-minute stroll - chain Italian, independent Italian, Thai, Indian and bistro. A similar number of bars and cafes, as well. Not that you'll necessarily need those food and drink outlets - as the apartment is perfectly set up for those wishing to cook their own meals or enjoy drinks on its own roof terrace. No need to bring food and drink with you - Waitrose is just round the corner, five-minute walk or two-minute drive (large car park). And Aldi is on the opposite side of the road, which also has a car park. Quick summary, the apartment is split over two levels on the top two floors of a Grade 2-listed (I'm guessing, Georgian) property. It's been refurbished to a high standard, with everything you need for a week's stay. Four double bedrooms - three with double beds, one with twin singles. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms/shower rooms. There is a third shower room that serves the other two bedrooms. Large open plan kitchen-diner with living area on the lower floor. And another living area on the top floor, with huge comfy sofas and a large TV. And the piece-de-resistance ... for the kids, was a hot-tub on the roof terrace. Such a brilliant way to unwind for tired little legs after enjoying some of the sites of the Peak District. Back to location - Buxton is a great place to base yourself for a Peak District break. So many places of interest to visit less than a 30-minute drive away. The apartment comes with a parking space - in the narrow road to the side of the building. Not the easiest place to park, but it's good to know you have a guaranteed space. There is plenty of unrestricted street parking a five-minute walk away. I highly recommend this place - but if I was to try to pick one fault with it, I'd say it's not ideal for people with mobility difficulties, as there are around three flights of stairs to negotiate to access the apartment.
