Ideal location for the Opera House which wasthe main purpose of the stay. Allocated Room 16 on check-in and eventually found it tucked away at the back of the hotel. This room overlooks a flat roofed area with several skylights and a large building with the majority of it's windows boarded up. The worst thing about the room was the... More

This was our third one night stay here and each time we have stayed in a different style room. All three were comfortable with very good bathrooms. Great central hotel with lots of character; easy to walk out and easy to take in a show at the Opera House just over the road. The Pavilion Gardens are lovely to walk... More

Spent two nights at the Old Hall on a walking weekend with my wife. Comfortable room, with a good bed. Central for the town. Hearty breakfast served and we didn't eat much for lunch. Enjoyed the stay and would book again.

We got married at Old Hall Hotel in Buxton in July, and stayed for two nights with various members of our party, including some very small children. The standard of accommodation is very good, and the public areas are particularly well appointed, clean and welcoming, however, it is the excellent service and friendly staff which set this hotel apart.

I wanted a quiet relaxing break and this didn't disappoint. A beautiful hotel, traditional but not staid. Great central location. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Will stay again

Stayed for two nights with friends as it was a birthday treat for our friend. We knew it was an old hotel but as others have said it does look a little tired in places. Our two rooms were on two different floors but this didn't really bother us. They were of a similar size and we both said the... More
