Very grand hotel, our room on the front of the hotel overlooked Buxton. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was exceptional, served in a fantastic room and so much choice, even liver! Swimming pool changing rooms need updating but great value. Near all the shops and restaurants although Wetherspoons is 800 yards away!

We spent a night here on bed and breakfast Groupon offer. First impressions were a bright and welcoming entrance with friendly reception staff. Allowed to check in early as our room was ready. Given a room on the third(top) floor overlooking the town. Good views over surrounding hills as the hotel is on top of a hill. Spacious, clean room... More

This is the best Britannia Hotel that I have visited. Reception, bar, restaurant staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel was extremely clean and well kept in all areas. We did not have time for desert so the kitchen kindly trayed up our cheese and biscuits for consumption post-theatre. Sadly our room was quite small and shower room tiny... More

This hotel was obviously very grand in its day, unfortunately for this hotel it's a distant memory! The reception and bar areas are a little tired and what has been redecorated and refurbished has been done economically and in some cases poorly. The lift is in real need of modernisation. The corridors had been recently painted but in the same... More

Visited here January 2016. So impressed with the building. Victorian building, a stately older lady these days but very pleased to have experienced its earlier splendour. Reviews I had read were mixed and mentioned a need for a bit of a refurb but for its size it must be like the fourth bridge to maintain but it is being maintained.... More

Its been 45 minutes since I ordered my gnocci and it's still not here. I am hungry, tired and cold. It's very obvious to me that the restaurant staff are run off their feet, hence my wait, the restaurant is half full and I've counted only 4 members of staff. My bedroom is old, tired and in desperate need of... More
