Booked the Winter Warmer for 23rd Nov for 2 couples. Fabulous stay in a lovely hotel. Staff - as always very friendly and attentive. Rooms - large comfortable bed, hot showers and bath, decent size towels. Restaurant - the chef, waiting staff - especially Louise - were brilliant. The food delicious. All this set in the beautiful town of Buxton... More

Was recommended this hotel by Health and Safety Laboratory as I was on a course there. Arrived Sunday night after train from down South, at first I wasn't quite sure by the appearance. But after checking in and finding my bedroom, I was very quick to change my mind, the room and bathroom were just amazing, not like anywhere I... More

My wife and I were already familiar with the hotel's excellent restaurant. This was our first stay at this splendid historical building. Having read some critical reviews we were a bit apprehensive. We booked a "winter warmer" offer of bed, breakfast, 2-course evening meal and even a welcoming glass of mulled wine (delicious). We had a lovely large double-room, spotlessly... More

Just returned from an overnight stay in one of England's oldest hotels. I booked the historic Queen Mary Bower room 26. The sense of history in the room was tangible and particularly visible in the ancient ceiling which I have no reason to doubt is 16th century. Staying one night in a room that most knowledgeable opinion says Mary Queen... More

Stayed for a couple of nights at The Old Hall which was old world and quaint. The breakfast was very good and nice service. We had an early evening meal prior to going to the Opera House the meal was very nice but not hot. The teddy on the bed was nice.

We had our wedding here on Saturday 15 November 2014. We had the most amazing time and the staff could not do enough for us! We had the ceremony the reception and the evening reception and the whole thing ran like clockwork thanks to Vicky the Assistant Manager and her staff. It was all so relaxed. All our guests said...

The Old Hall is a charming hotel with a fantastic location in the center of Buxton. As far as my room was concerned, it was small and dark, and the two tiny lamps and clock/radio were so cheap looking that they really detracted. On the plus side, there was a cute teddy bear, and the room was quiet. I found... More

Yes, charming hotel in a great location, but there are downsides. We stayed for three nights one weekend in November. Each night there was a private event - a birthday party, a wedding and a christening. Staff energy and common spaces were taken up on making the events happen, which left us feeling like baked beans in a baked bean... More

We (couple) stayed here for one night as we were visiting the Opera House. It was reasonably priced and included breakfast! We checked in slightly earlier after a really helpful receptionist checked whether our room was ready for us. She also advised us about parking and suggested places to eat for our evening meal. The hotel bedroom was full of... More
