Good location, Parking can be a slight problem but the hotel do offer day tickets for £3. Rooms are a little tiered but very clean. Limited evening menu but it was well presented and hot in the main restaurant. Breakfast award winning hotel ?? Mainly only luke warm, Could not manage a hard poached egg after 3 attemps very poor.... 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.

We hired function room for our mums 90th birthday party. It was excellent. Attentive staff, lovely food and a great venue with a private bar. Superb. We stayed over and enjoyed a lovely room and very nice breakfast in the morning. We had our dog with us and he was most welcome throughout, even offering us breakfast in a side... More

Apparently Mary Queen of Scots stayed here 1576-1578, and judging by some of the soft furnishings and decor you would think she's coming tomorrow, but that just adds to its charm, the whole place creaks when you walk through it, for history lovers it's a must.the staff are so friendly and how nice it was that the breakfast girls are...

I can believe the Old Hall is the oldest hotel in England - there was not an inch of floor that didn't creak when I stepped on it. Opposite the beautiful Pavilion Gardens, its stone walls contain a labyrinth of corridors, cosy bedrooms (with a complimentary teddy bear on each bed) and old fashioned public rooms. It was like staying... More

Perfectly situated for the Peak District or for exploring the lovely town of Buxton, The Old Hall was a very good choice. The room was very well appointed (4 poster) steeped in history and character. The reception team were very good and helpful. The restaurant however was not as impressive. The chairs, (straight from a hire company) seriously need replacing.... More

Stayed for just the one night after a private function in the very suitable Shrewsbury room. Quirky is the right description for tha rooms with slopping floors . Aimed at the overseas visitors but over the top with a dash of lemonade costing 75 pence. Breakfast ok, but our table of six ordered athe same time and some had finished... More
