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

We just stayed overnight at the Old Hall hotel in Buxton and had a thoroughly lovely time. Buxton is a very pleasant place to visit and we were very impressed by the hotel. It is large, very old and has a fascinating history, which you get glimpses of throughout (loved the lift!). It is well kept and well maintained, with... More

We stayed here for two nights, with friends. We arrived at 11.30 am, the receptionist was very friendly and checked to see if our rooms were ready, they were not and I was not expecting them to be but she was polite, apologetic, gave us a parking voucher and told us a few things we could do until our rooms...

Stayed here whilst walking the wonderful Monsal Trail. Hotel claims to be the oldest in England and its labyrinth of corridors and levels would reinforce that claim. The lift is a technical marvel from about 1930. However, the staff were great and the food was excellent. The room was adequate. The hotel is well placed to explore the town and... More

Reception: The initial impression as you walk in is not good, as a narrow corridor with a rather shabby carpet leads down to reception. Once you check in, though, the staff are friendly and efficient. Room: We booked a four poster bed room,Room 27, which was pleasantly furnished but not all that special. However It overlooked parkland, which was a... More

Stayed there on Friday night - had dinner & breakfast. Hotel decor is somewhat dated but it has character. Our room was above the entrance, overlooking the Pavilion Gardens. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the town. Dinner was from a set menu and food was good for the price. Service could have been a bit friendlier -... More

This is not the place to go if you like a hotel with smart modern and well appointed fittings. The hotel is one of the oldest in the UK and the decor reflects this.
