We stayed here as a break between Christmas and New Year. It was in ideal location for the town centre and Opera House. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 3, the four poster room which was lovely but some of the decor and furnishings throughout the building could do with being improved.
On the whole a lovely hotel for a short break.

just returned from a two night stay at the buckingham and had room 23 the suite. the hotel is a lovely characterful building but the lounge and some other public areas are in need of a refurbish, the lounge needs new carpet, new settees, it is not somewhere i would want to sit and relax. the suite is very nice but a few extra touches are needed like a small mini fridge, bottled water, the bathroom is beautiful and huge with a roll top bath and his and hers sinks but at times could smell "drains" smell. also the breakfast chef needs to change the way they cook the mushrooms and food in the bar was average, also booked from boxing day and was not told no bar or restaurant would be open only breakfast the following morning. it is situated in a lovely location and with a few tweaks could be fab. reception staff very friendly. the room (23) was very clean just let down with some public areas. dog friendly apart from restaurant. had a great stay in buxton and a good base to visit some beautiful peak villages

Room Tip: we were shown by mistake into room 22 which was awful, 19 (a relation stayed in this room) was average and the suite was good apart from occasional drainage smell. i just feel when booking a suite a mini fridge and few extras would be in order. also bit noisy at night with boy racers.

We have stayed at this hotel several times, the rooms are all themed with each one having loads of pictures of a famous star of the stage or screen. Every member of staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast is fantastic with the largest choice I have ever experienced. Don't expect 4 star furnishings but rooms are warm and clean and you have the advantage of a real ale bar! Close to all amenities you will love it for being different, we will certainly visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for the film star of your choice!

Stopped here on a trip to Buxton opera house, and the location is ideal as it is a short walk to the opera house and gardens from the hotel. The hotel is old a quirky and has bill boards of shows all over the hotel keeping a theme close to the opera house I assume, which adds to its character. The breakfast was very good, an amazing array of cereals and marmalades. The bedroom was ok, but the bed was a little hard which made for a bad nights sleep, and I like firm mattresses. The one thing that lets this hotel down is the bar area, a nice bar with a good selection of real ales and lagers but the price is a little steep at £4.70 a pint, and then there are the metal patio chairs and tables to sit at, not comfortable, I like a hotel with a bar so I can have a end of night drink in comfortable surroundings, unfortunatelt this is not possible here, a shame as it is the only thing that lets it down.

I stayed 2 nights in the hotel with my young son for a short break. The location was perfect, easy access to everything we wanted to see including the Opera house where we saw Joseph (just brilliant). We booked the suite which was spacious, clean and comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. The hotel is definitely quirky and not what I expected but it was charming and the staff were very helpful. The food was excellent and reasonable. Not your run of the mill place but worth a visit.

Room Tip: Although the suite is at the front of the hotel we weren't disturbed and it was worth the money fro the space
