This hotel is ideally situated near the centre of town and easy to find. It has a lift to all floors, and on site restaurant, small parking lot and accepts dogs. My room on the second floor was quite large with TV, table, chairs, en suite. The continental breakfast was ample and the restaurant meals excellent. The staff were friendly... More

Spent a short weekend here a year ago. the rooms are rather small but comfy enough and the welcome polite and cheerful, a downfall is the simplicity of the rooms with very little to them and highly cold. Good parking and in a good spot for access to all that Buxton has to offer. It does have a very good... More

Although our greeting on arrival was friendly, I can truly say the room wasn't as welcoming - a good lick of paint would have made the room more pleasant. It just gave the impression of neglect which I didn't expect after a winter when most places do go through some refurbishment. Bar was pleasant to sit in - the menu... More

Loved the Buckingham, fantastic place to stay in Buxton, lovely room, very clean, massive en suite with shower and separte bath, sky tv, a very comfy bed. Free on site parking, and the hotel is in an excellent location for The Opera House, The Pavillon gardens and just a short walk into the town centre. Loved the showbiz theme throughout... More

Nothing to fault really, will use again if returning to the area. Good location for Buxton itself. Rooms above the bar area are noisier however it gets quieter at 10 and then very quiet after 11 so not a problem for most people.

Room was ok, a bit scruffy, good night's sleep though, price was good. But the breakfast was seriously grim and the whole place presents as run down and shabby. Overall impression is of a hotel that is quite seriously on the way down. Better to pay more for something more professional.

Having stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years I have to say the quality of food has decreased markedly. Breakfast used to be made to order but now is a continental breakfast that is just heated up pre-cooked pancakes/waffles or similar. Some of the evening meals are of a similar approach. Sad to see this compared... More

Room was very clean with a lovely bath. Sky tv also! The staff were really helpful and great value for money! A great place to stay for a visit in buxton. Drinks in the hotel bar little expensive £4 a pint. We didn't eat at the hotel so could not comment on the food, but the menu was impressive

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Buckingham Hotel, it has lots going for it and is a refreshing change to a chain hotel. It has lots of character and has a thespian theme running throughout, lots of period pictures of film stars and the dining room has what appears to be a lighting set from a theatre. The... More

This is a quirky hotel (in a good way), it's a very old building and it does show, but it adds to the character of the hotel. There's also a few interesting things to look at (my partner particularly liked the toy collection behind the glass, and some of the puppets in the stairway), the lift is pretty interesting too....
