This is a very comfortable, traditional hotel. The staff - especially in the wine bar and restaurant - are superb. The food and service in the wine bar are outstanding. In the restaurant we would have liked slightly better fayre for the price. The smoked chicken salad consisted of 3 small pieces of chicken and really was a taster rather... More

Reputed to be the oldest hotel in England. Mary Queen of Scots was a former " guest". Very comfy spacious room with en- suite facility. Dinner in the bar was good value and despite the fact there was a wedding party in full swing there were plenty of other options to sit and enjoy a wine and the house speciality... More

Hotel has a fantastic location for the Festival in the Opera House. It's a historic building with lots of atmosphere and a very helpful, friendly staff. My room was large, light (2 windows), clean and comfortable. I loved the shower, but the gel provided was almost impossible to get out of the fiddly little bottles! Good wi-fi, comfortable lounges for... More

What another stunning stay at the Old Hall Hotel this weekend just gone. We hit carnival weekend and the whole of Buxton was very busy. Its a very nice hotel with wonderful staff & excellent food too. You know when you have found a nice hotel, that you book another stay within an hour of arriving home.

This was chosen by a friend for a party of 10 Lovely position nice historic building. Food in the dining room was very good although personally the bar menu looked more interesting. Our room was on the top floor and was very small, the bathroom was tiny and the bath was almost child size. The stairwells had a musty old... More

I visited for afternoon tea. The sandwiches were not great, the beef was far too rare. The ham was extremely fatty. As such I could eat neither of them. I think also what canopies are being served should be published as we may have requested something different if we had known as none were to our taste. The scone was... More

Not a cheap place to stay, but worth it for a special occasion. We had room 30 which was huge, with a bay window overlooking the Slopes park. The staff were friendly, breakfast was good (we didn't try the restaurant in the evenings) and the £3 per day parking outside was idea, if you can get a place, we were... More

I wanted to congratulate the management and staff of the hotel for, once again making our Buxton stay so enjoyable. The young, vibrant and polite staff are a joy, from the bar staff to the chamber maids. The night shift concierge was helpful on a couple of occasions too. The food from breakfast through bar snacks to a la carte... More

Large room very clean and comfortable. This was my second stay in Buxton over the last year and this hotel is much better than the Lee wood just up the road. It is comfortable has very pleasant staff and is in an excellent location just opposite the park and pavilion rooms the heart of Buxton.
