The hotel is well situated above the cricket oval and overlooking Buxton. Parking was ample and the hotel rooms were small but well set out. It appeared that the bathrooms were added after the rooms were built and as such ours was small and involved some contortion to use the toilet or the shower. We ate in the hotel restaurant... More

We had a couple of nights at Lee Wood Hotel in July 2014. It is about 7 or 8 minutes' walk down to the main gardens and Opera House and a bit further to the town centre. The walk back is uphill and takes longer. The hotel was quiet; the bed was large and comfortable; the free wifi worked well.... More

A traditional hotel near the centre of Buxton. Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. Spacious, comfortable room with all the usual amenities and a really nice modern bathroom. Dinner and breakfast were excellent and the service was professional if a little slow. Would definitely return. Highly recommended.

The service at the Lee Wood was at best shambolic! A anniversary party seemed to take over the hotel and other residents and guests completely ignored. No wine glasses at the bar, no seats in the lounge in fact moved out of the lounge to make way for the private party. Clearly more money to be had from a private... More

An upgrade to a suite made this otherwise rather expensive "character" hotel worth a 2 day visit. Plenty of room in the suite which overall was up to the mark. Don't know what the standard rooms are like. Dinner and breakfast are about what you would expect - nothing brilliant, but nothing really wrong either. Dinner in town is probably... More

A real charming, character hotel. The rooms are spacious and well supplied with lovely, large comfy bed. We definitely intend to stay here again. We had one little hiccup but this was dealt with and do not anticipate that it would occur again. Situated opposite the bowling green and cricket pitch - lovely place to be on a warm summer... More

I remember staying at the Lee Wood about 20 years ago. This hotel hosted my school reunions. Sadly my old school has gone but the hotel and its excellent service remain. It has been a long time since I visited home but next time I'm in town I'll be booking in at The Lee Wood again. Top service by friendly... More
