This is a nice old hotel at the edge of the city center. It's easy walking distance to the center of town, Pavillion Gardens, the Opera House and restaurants, shops, etc. What made our experience there especially pleasant though was the staff. We arrived on the last day of the recent heat wave, and like most places in this part... More

We spent four nights at the Lee Wood, using it as a base to explore Buxton and the surrounding area. Our room was quite spacious and the beds were very comfortable. In addition to a desk and chair, there were two easy chairs and a small table - making it very comfortable to sit and read or watch tv. The... More

We had room 1 for 2 nights. Although it was clean and well presented it was quite small and too warm, there was a small window which looked into another wall and even though it was open constantly there was no fresh air coming in. If it has been warm weather it would have been very uncomfortable to try to... More

Stayed only one night. Room was very well appointed (was upgraded to one of the "executive" rooms) and quiet enough considering it was right by the main road out of Buxton. Nicely located for a walk into town. Didn't use the restaurant or bar in the evening, but breakfast was ok.

The staff were very attentive and made you feel relaxed. The room was immaculate and was cleaned to a high standard. I had steak for one meal which was cooked to perfection, which is not always the case.

Hard to gauge a star rating really - 3 or 4 depending on what your priorities are. We stayed here for one night and had a room in the annexe. Perfectly clean and comfortable, very friendly service, good breakfast and can't say that anything was really wrong. However, we paid a fair amount for the room and would have expected... More
