This is one of the most out going hotels I've been to in a long time. There was movie stars all over the walls when you walked in. Posters everywhere, always something to look at. The room was clean plenty of tea, coffee and sugar, complimentary soaps in the bathroom. The location is spot on. And it has a bar... More

Lovely old building. Staff member told me it had been condemned and will properly be demolished. In the meantime they let out rooms but no food or drink service at all. Room was fine if a bit dated, we had pictures of John Travolta all over the room. Clean and everything worked. If looking a bit run-down. Great price for... More

the hotel was clean and good enough for our requirements, which were somewhere to sleep after the theatre and leave early next day. We would not want to stay there any longer than that. The door sticker boast of a 4 star food hygiene rating, but when we got there we were old by the receptionist that they don't serve... More

Named after a palace. Logo is a dog. Halls and lift covered in posters. Rooms themed after beers. Interior rooms covered in 1990's has beens. Cabinets of early 80's dolls... Not for the modern feint hearted traveller! Our stay was ok, would avoid for future stays! No breakfast which isn't much to ask when room is same price as other... More

The Buckingham is in a good location by the Pavilion Gardens and a short walk from the town, this used to be a graceful and elegant hotel but is now uncared for and down at heel with structural issues. The owner seems to be locked in some sort of planning argument with the local council, he wants to demolish but... More

The hotel has a brilliant location just off the main road into Buxton and opposite the park. It is a fine and impressive stone building with ample car parking on site. The work "Quirky" is probably the most suitable as you are greeted with a laminated poster of Basil Fawlty on the porch entrance window. Then it's like stepping back... More

We booked a room at the Buckingham Hotel Buxton for 2 nights. We later noticed that the order confirmation said that it was a room only booking, but thought we could add breakfast once we got to the hotel. However, when we arrived we were told that the hotel was not doing ANY food at all so we could not... More

Despite calling to book the room and being very politely informed that should we want one, an evening meal at the hotel was not possible, no mention was made of the fact that breakfast wasn't provided and that we were paying for the room only. The website details reasons to stay at the hotel, of which number 4 refers, in... More

On our arrival we were allocated a large airy room overlooking the Pavillion Gardens. The location is perfect for visitors to the town. The beds were comfortable with crisp clean sheets. The decor is tired and in need of tlc. We have learned since that the hotel is due for a major re-furb to commence this autumn. We were underwhelmed... More
