Booking was easy over the telephone .Although no hotel parking it is a pay and display on the doorstep for £3 each 24 hr if ticket purchased at the hotel reception . The room was large and clean ,furniture was in date with the hotel. The staircase areas of the building had a damp smell and seem tired . Evening... More

I arrived by public transport & could walk easily to the hotel even though I have walking difficulties.(Taxis are not normally waiting at Buxton Station.). My room was excellent & my only slight criticism would be that I would have liked instructions for getting the shower to work!! However this is a problem in many hotels & I did get... More

Spent one night at The Old Hall on a Winter Warmer tariff, we were checked in by a charming receptionist who gave us all the information we needed for our stay, including arrangements for parking, meal times, and our planned late return from the Soul Night at the nearby Pavilion Gardens Octogon. Our room was spacious, comfortable,and well equipped. With... More

Great hotel in a great location, very friendly staff, good parking arrangements, centrally located. Wine bar is great for a quick meal. The restaurant is a lovely room and the breakfasts were very good. However we found the dinner menu very limited and not to our taste. We ate dinner out, which in Buxton is very easy to do. The...

A very warm and comfortable hotel with close proximity to the Opera House and Pavilion and situated in front of the park. The staff were very helpful and the cooked breakfast very good but could have been a little warmer. There is a lot to do in Buxton and the surrounding area and we would definitely stay at this hotel... More

We stayed for a night in one of the four poster bedrooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We managed to park right outside. The views form our window were of the Slopes, St Anne's Welland the Crescent. With the Pavilion gardens being just across the road. Everything was in easy reach. The room was lovely, with a very...

Stayed for the one night “Special Winter Warmer Break” courtesy of our daughters as a Golden Wedding present, they couldn’t have selected a more appropriate gift.

We partook of the included free hot wine in the Wine Bar prior... More

Have just returned from a very pleasant four-night stay at the 'Old Hall Hotel'. Staff were very friendly and helpful and any request we made very promptly responded to, for example, when we needed some synthetic-filled pillows or had run out of shower gel. Our room ( a 'classic' category bedroom) was a little cramped but warm and comfortable and... More

First, the hotel is in Buxton, one of the nicest towns in the country, and it is just across the road from the beautiful Opera House. Being on crutches and chemotherapy, the location and parking bays alongside the hotel, make this useful for me, especially when I was told at reception that parking with blue handicapped card displayed was FREE...
