Stayed for one night at this hotel in Buxton. This is a very large hotel which looks stunning at night on approach. Reception staff were friendly and the room comfortable with a well stocked bathroom re soaps etc. Hotel needs some cosmetic work doing to it but has that victorian feel about it which I prefer to modern hotels.
Went out for dinner to a local steakhouse (Lone Star - separate review) and on return was met by the friendly and helpful Donna in the bar. Although the drinks are a tad expensive the bar was well stocked and a few "cheeky wee whiskies" were consumed from a good range of malts.
Breakfast was a pleasure, Sarah and her team were friendly and efficient, helpful without imposing. Well done the chef!! Kippers beautifully cooked and the scrambled eggs seasoned to perfection.
All in all a very good experience.
