Just returned from a great 3 night stay at the Palace Hotel and Spar in Buxton. We had a very large room over looking the lovely front gardens. After reading earlier reviews my wife and I had certain reservations, how wrong we were, yes, the hotel as seen better days and could do with a refurbishment, but the hotel has... More

When we requested first floor rooms with showers we were told we had them when we booked when we got to the hotel this wasn't the case. We were on the second floor. We requested a move but they said the hotel was full but we could get moved on the Monday to rooms we requested as we were staying... More

It's a grand hotel fallen on hard times where recent work has been done to a poor standard. Our room was plenty large enough for our family of four. The bathroom was very old and cheap when it had been redone and poor quality pipes all over the place and badly put together. That said it all worked but looked... More

One night B&B at full price is a rip off. It is a very old hotel which needs a lot of TLC to bring it up to the standard people expect today. The decor of the room was ok but at the back of the building with a noisy heating/kitchen/extractor fan below. There were two small, round soaps in the... More

What a beautiful hotel. Both the room andn reception areas were stunning. The view from our room was fantastic. Also the staff were so helpful and welcoming. Will definitely ho back again. Set in beautiful grounds where you can enjoy an afternoon tea.

A group of us stayed over the weekend in this rather grand, shabby hotel. The decor in the rooms is dated but there is everything you need in the room; beds were a little soft for me but I slept well. The staircase is breathtaking and the grounds are gorgeous. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Would stay again.

My husband and I along with our Jack Russell dog stopped over in this Hotel for one night. We were put up in a Attic bedroom which I can only describe as sauna like conditions on one of the hottest days of the year. There were no air conditioning, no room fans, just a small window which only opened about... More

The hotel was spotless but other than that it was a disappointment. The reception area was beautiful. Very vintage and ornate. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. That's where the good points end. The room was small, cramped and badly laid out. The telly was placed badly so you couldn't watch it. The bathroom door didn't shut properly or... More
