I travelled to Buxton to see a play at the theatre across the road and went to the hotel for lunch. The food and a round of drinks were ordered and the drinks duly arrived. A simple order, a white wine sprittzer, a pint of Buxton SPA and a pot of tea. The wine was acceptable and the tea was... More

No doubt this hotel was once a destination in itself but sadly no longer. The hotel is in need of a facelift and the rooms require something of a re-imagining. In an age when the budget range of hotels offer a very good level of comfort and facilities, older properties can not simply offer wifi and a postage stamp tv... More

Staff went out of their way to accomodate us. Room had everything we needed. Yes it's old, but the clue is in the name and it has bags of character along with a few creaks and squeaks here and there. Good breakfasts too!

Anniversary night away in executive room. Easy check in, helpful receptionist (make sure you buy a parking ticket from the hotel as it will last 24 hours). Lovely comfortable and quaint room, just what we wanted. Bar was not overpriced and had a good mix of clientele in. Breakfast staff were also friendly and polite, only one little gripe and... More
