I don’t think my family will forget this on quickly. Frankly the Buckingham is a dung heap and not a hotel (if you can call it a hotel) that the Hyacinth Buckets of this world would taken up residence. Cheap, yes. Clean, ‘ish’. Dog friendly, yes. Well located, yes. Parking, Yes… But fundamentally appalling. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t... More

This has been my favourite hotel in Buxton but not now. It is quirky - and I've liked that. It is good value - and i like that. It has had a good range of beers - and I liked that but it no longer does. It has done good food in the bar and the restaurant - but it... More

We stayed here for one night with friends as going to see Paul Carrack at the opera house. Although tired the rooms were spotless as were the bathrooms. We all slept very well as a quiet hotel. This place could be a gold mine in the righthands. They don't serve breakfast but we found a great cafe just down from... More

We were initially surprised at the run down ambience of the place but actually everything was clean and fit for purpose, just a bit unusual that's all. We wanted a cheap place to stay in Buxton near to the centre and that is what we got. So no complaints from us. The only minor niggle was the bar only had... More

It's not for the so-called discerning (read picky) traveller I guess but we rather enjoyed ourselves in this funky hotel and also in the town of Buxton. A time warp? Yep! Shabby? Deffo! Character? By the shed-load! After a super-chilled-out checking in procedure we got the key with a sizeable key-fob featuring a "puzzling" quote from a Guns and Roses... More

This is a quirky hotel and you need to get into a different "mindset" to see it for what it is. That is, a hotel in the old fashioned way that hasn't changed much in a many a year. It is clean and comfortable. Our bathroom was modern and immaculate. The bar area was full of locals and had a... More

We had already read some reviews for here so knew it was a little strange but kept telling our selfs it was just a place to sleep as we were attending a wedding at the palace. I called to enquire about prices and availability for a family room was told there was availability and then pretty much told by a... More

We stayed here for one night before a university applicant day. It was very conveniently located near the town and university. It was also a very good price at under £60 for 3 adults without breakfast and in proper beds so my expectations weren't high. First impression was of an odd place in a time warp which was also a...

We booked this place via booking.com and on arrival on the 07th March 2015 at this "hotel" we were greeted by a filthy, threadbare hallway carpet, a shocking lounge which was located just off the entrance hall which had ripped and dirty sofas in it and the place was engulfed by a musty aroma. The "hotel" was dirty, old and... More

Our room no 18 was very large with an even bigger bathroom. We booked this hotel as it took dogs. Whilst it may not be to everyones taste, it is quirky to say the least. But made us smile. The staff were friendly and we could not fault our room which was spotlessly clean. Ideal location across the road from... More
