Very comfortable rooms, little extras of biscuits and Buxton water in room, lovely meal one evening, elderly father's 2nd floor room right next to lift a big bonus, relaxed staff, no complaints at all.

Location superb, reception staff superb, though unfortunately it ends there. An earlier comment that the hotel was stuck in a 'time warp' and like 'an old people's home' I am sorry to say, is only too true; we found it very dated indeed, and in desperate need of a refurb. The bedroom was very narrow, uncomfortable bed, (carpet looks like... More

We went in a party of ten for our annual cousins reunion. I have to say at this stage that the staff at the Lee Wood are the most obliging, helpful and attentive we have experienced for some time and UK hotels are mostly pretty good anyway. We needed a bit of extra attention for one of the party and... More

This is a great location for exploring the Peak District; but the main reason for the 5 rating was the really helpful attitude of all of the staff - all were more than happy to help. The hotel was traditionally comfortable, with everything needed for a relaxing break. Sorry that I've left it so late to review.

Four of us went here as part of birthday celebrations. We were really looking for a carvery, which they no longer do, but the AA rosette status of the kitchen meant we stayed. It was a very good job that we did. The food was very good with equally good service. This restaurant continues to be really good and well... More

I was very disappointed with this hotel. Its in a good location and the bedrooms are of a good size and decorated as you would expect for a country hotel but the hotel itself is full of very old fashoned furniture (not country house or antique) which looks cheap and nasty. The carpet is paterned, the type you would have... More

The staff in the restaurant and reception were exceptional. Lovely setting. Clean and comfortable. Food in restaurant was tasty and value for money. Bed a little soft for me but room large and well equipped.

Just had a very enjoyable weekend stay here. Large, bright spotlessly clean room with lovely view across to the hillside opposite. Quiet location despite being only a short walk from the town centre. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly helpful staff.

This is the fifth time we have visited this hotel over several years and the standard has remained high. Ideally situated in Buxton, easy access to the town centre and attractions. Some lovely walking routes nearby, with amazing views across the Derbyshire countryside. Hotel accommodation has been ungraded and the food as ever remains exceptional.

Very nice hotel with lovely setting, only minutes from the centre. Wonderful breakfast. Friendly and efficient staff, despite having a large wedding taking place on the Saturday. There is also plenty of street parking round about if for any reason the car parks are full.
