Left this morning after countless 4/5 day breaks, you either love or hate the place we love it. Sadly the old lady closes later this year but not before we have stayed twice more, when the doors close it will not be for the last time like a Phoenix a completely rebuilt and refurbished Eco hotel will appear.it cannot reopen...

This hotel is situated very close to the centre of Buxton, everywhere was within walking distance, however this is all there is to recommend it! It was, on the whole very dated and tired and certainly not the cleanest. It seemed to be run by the maintenance man who also was part time bar man as well as receptionist. Certainly... More

Stayed in Room 17 for 3 nights, and this was good value for money, as it was much cheaper than any other hotels or B&Bs we found. This is partly because there is no breakfast included, so make sure you are comparing it against other 'room only' prices. If you buy breakfast out, it brings the cost up to nearly... More

I am writing this in between scratching the 50 or so bed bug bites I got from the infested mattress in room 6. I thought the place was rather funny at first...until next morning when my husband realised there was something else watching TV with us in bed. The edges of the mattresses and mattress covers on both beds were... More

Old fashioned décor, tired mattress, rather peculiar collection of dolls/puppets dotted around, a poster in the porch of Basil Fawlty with various 'humerous' quips about discounts / premiums for particular types of guests.... all a little bit odd. BUT they were friendly, helpful, the room and bathroom were clean, the location was good (5-10min stroll largely through Pavillion Gardens to... More

When we arrived at the hotel I would have gladly turned around and not stayed here but my partner insisted that we were only here for 1 night and we would put up with it. There is nothing nice about this hotel. It is dirty and unkempt in great need of refurbishment. The room (7) was tiny with peeling wallpaper... More

The hotel is well situated near the Pavillion Gardens. The room was well kitted out with both a bath and shower in the room, all of which were very clean. The decor was interesting although not my personal preference. There was a bar in the hotel which had a happy hour everyday with well priced drinks. There was no breakfast... More

For what you pay, I really can't fault this place. Yes it is a little dated, and the décor is a little odd (but interesting), but the room had everything we needed, it was clean, the bar upstairs is pretty good (although they do allow dogs, which is a big no for me, although I understand I'm probably in a...

Room we were allocated was rather the worse for wear - lumpy uncomfortable mattress on the bed, generally desperately in need of significant TLC. NO food sold at the hotel - including no breakfast. The place is really just a pub with some spare bedrooms. Dog friendly - they really don't care and you could bring in any animal I... More

We chose this place based on our budget & preferred location. Its a great quirky place that probably was formerly an amazing hotel. Yes, it a little dated but I couldn't fault it. Some reviews are ridicous. People expect a 5* place for 1* prices. We loved reading the reviews & all of the various themed rooms. We had 6a... More
