As we have family in Buxton and we live in Wales, we have stayed at The Palace Hotel quite a few times now, usually over the Christmas period. We did in fact get married there at Christmas, 7 years ago and it was all wonderful. Even if staff have changed over the years, their policy is still the same, very helpful, friendly and professional.
The bonus is allowing dogs to stay too......which is great if we decide to stay at the last minute.
The hotel is huge and full of character, lots of features retained in its full glory and situated above the lovely historical town of Buxton.
The interior of the hotel may be quite tired looking in parts and there is the odd draft here and there but it has to be expected in such an old building that takes a great deal of maintenance, we think that's part of it's charm! We had a beautiful meal in the evening, our room was clean, facilities and breakfast were good. So no complaints, because for us, who run a small B&B in an 100 year old house and understand the business, it was perfect for our stay. We will always stay there when in Buxton. Well done to all the staff!
