“Very enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for one night on February 20th in order to attend a performance at Buxton Opera House. We stayed in a spacious double room which was very clean and comfortable. On entering the room there was, what could be described, as a hall with the bathroom off, this which meant that the bathroom was further away from the bedroom. In the bedroom there was a two seater sofa which we put in front of the flat screen television which meant that you could relax more easily. At breakfast there were the usual cereals, juices, fruit selections, croissants, yogurts, toast as well as cooked to order full English. The hotel was quiet and very warm and we will return. If the weather had been warmer we would have stayed for a second night.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We have recently visited this hotel and we were very impressed. The hotel has a lovely, warm, cosy feel towards it, which is better than what you get in large hotels. The hotel both outside and inside is quirky, well kept and very nice. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much for them. They printed us maps off and gave directions for when we wanted to go visiting around other towns such as Bakewell. The beds are very comfy!! Most of all though, the location is fantastic! Not far from Buxton centre where you have a choice of restaurants/ cafes and pubs to visit. There is also the opera house and pavillon gardens. To walk to the centre from the hotel is lovely, there are lots of green grounds, gorgeous buildings and it is so peaceful and quiet. We loved our stay and will be back in the future! If you are stopping at this hotel on a break away, as well as visiting Buxton centre, check out Bakewell too, it's stunning!!

Thanks for a lovely break :)

I have stayed in the Lee Wood on 2 separate occasions whilst working in the Buxton area. On each occasion I found the staff friendly, rooms spotless and the hotel quiet and comfortable. I did not have breakfast but ate off the bar menu in the evenings a couple of times. The food was good quality although the bar menu is limited in choice. The restaurant menu has much more choice but I thought was a little expensive. The hotel offers free Wi-fi and car parking and I would certainly stay there again if working in the area.

Stayed one night - 9 February

Certainly one of the best hotels I've stayed in for a long time - in fact, I'd go as far as to say, the best.

We couldn't fault anything about it. The room was very spacious, and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. The view from the room (No 29) was amazing looking over the park. There is a newly opened gym with up to date equipment.

Breakfast this morning was lovely, served quickly and piping hot.

If you're in the area and looking for somewhere to stay, this is your answer.

We visited her in new year season for my Birthday. We were very happy as our room had been upgraded so we had a nice lounge area as well as generous sized bedroom and bathroom.
The room was plain decor but clean.
Best of all, the staff were friendly but not plastic! From reception, restaurant to domestic staff, all were lovely and willing to chat. the place had a peaceful feel about it and we really enjoyed our stay.

A really nice hotel with very helpful staff who really go the extra mile to make sure guests are comfortable. Dinner in the conservatory restaurant was very enjoyable and the staff went to great lengths to make sure we were warm enough. Breakfast was varied and good, the best hotel poached eggs I've ever had. A very enjoyable stay, thank you.
