The bathrooms were good I had a shower over a bath but my friend had a good walk in shower in hers. Not great views out of the bedroom windows but such a pleasant location this... More

Scott surprised me with a romantic stay in room 27, it's by far the most beautiful and romantic room in the world! We've stayed in this room before and it's lost not of its charm. It was lovely to have fresh roses in the room and sitting in the bay window with hand delivered pink fizz was a welcome touch... More

Set in a quiet location opposite the pretty pavilion gardens , but just as accessible to the shopping areas which are being developed. An old traditional hotel with quirky corridors and small lift. Rooms are traditionally furnished with mis matching furniture but perfectly practicable. Service was very good here. Standard of of food was variable , we ate in the... More

This is the oldest hotel in England. Also known for having had Mary Queen of Scots live here for some time. Don't make this put you off - the hotel rooms have been refurbished, while the general areas have been updated but maintain the old-world charm. We stayed in a double room. The beds are very comfortable, and despite the... More

We stayed here with our three kids aged 17,17 and 12, we stayed in the attic flat and it was perfect for us. The stairs to the attic are very steep and probably not suitable for young kids -carrying bags up was a bit tough because we had so much luggage! The dinner, which was included in our package, was...

This hotel is excellent, superb location; great staff; lovely rooms and a fantastic breakfast buffet. All in all excellent value for money and the perfect place to stay to enjoy Buxton and the surrounding area. I particularly liked that all the bedrooms are different, tastefully furnished and decorated and each one just a little different. Parts of the hotel are... More
