My wife and I recently spent a few nights at this hotel in peaceful Buxton.
The location is very good - about 5-10 minutes walk to the Opera House - a little further to the shopping centre. The hotel is facing the cricket ground which, on an infamous day in June 1975, had snow stopping play while Derbyshire were playing Lancashire.

Our bedroom was of adequate size - recently renovated. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom had a shower within a bath - quite a steep climb. You had the option of a shower straight from the ceiling or with a hand held implement.

The dining was in a very smart conservatory - the tables were well spread out, so very peaceful. Dinner was three courses - vegetables were allocated to the particular dish, although you could choose something different if you wanted to. The only comment that I would make is that it might have been better to automatically let guests decide on vegetables when they chose their main course. Breakfast - full or continental - catered for guests with special diets by offering sugar - free jam or marmalade - which was appreciated.

And the staff - all very helpful and friendly

Good Hotel this ..of the older fashioned variety and no worse for that, comfortable bed ..great breakfast....We had dinner there ..and it was rather good and reasonably priced too which as anyone who dines in hotels in the UK is a rarity

The hotel appears security concious but the one quibble I have is that the safe is not bolted or fastened down in anyway to a wall or cupboard and as such safes are not very heavy the possibility of a disappearing safe is not beyound the realms of possibilities..or am I just being paranoid..
All in all I enjoyed my stay at the leawood..and the safe didnt disappear..

Room Tip: Rooms in Older Hotels such as this are usually similar

This was my fourth time to stay for a break and I found nothing to complain about but many things to sing praises of.
The meals were excellent. The staff delightful considerate and unobtrusive some even remembering my previous stays . The room was very clean and comfortable.
I hope there will be rooms available when I next need a short break.

Room Tip: Discuss when ooking

Very central, not the cheapest option, but staff were without exception very helpful. Was staying in the Annex, as there was a weeding , room was of a very high standard, in an old fashioned way.
The breakfast was possibly the best I have ever had, Plenty of choice

Room Tip: Annex good if there is a wedding

We stayed for two nights (Friday and Saturday) on a bed and breakfast with dinner on the first night deal. It was lucky we were having the dinner on the first night as on the Saturday there was as wedding reception and it was very busy.

We arrived at the hotel at around 12:30, so well ahead of the checkin time. Lots of space in the car park. Thankfully our room was ready. Checkin was smooth and efficient, although they did have to check the room basis as it seemed our deal was not on their system.

Our room was on the second floor, comfortable and pretty spacious. It faced out into the park, which was nice. We went out to explore Buxton.

We headed back to our room and after freshening up went down to dinner. We had a drink in the bar, and after studying the menu, they took our order. When our starters were ready, they collected us from the bar and seated us at our table. Everything was smooth, the food very tasty, the service very good.

The first night it was nice and quiet at the hotel, although the bowling club opposite was active until around 10:45.

Breakfast on both days was very pleasant. A good buffet and a good choice on the menu, with efficient service.

When we returned to the hotel after our day out on Saturday, probably at about 5:30, there was no parking available because of the wedding reception. Thankfully there is free parking by the park, and we were early enough still to be able to see the car from our room window.

The wedding reception meant that it was a little more noisy late that evening, but not terrible.

Check out was smooth, our bill accurate, and we were soon on our way.

We are very pleased to see you enjoyed your stay, we do try to ensure that are residents still get the best service possible even when we are hosting events in the hotel. We ensure all music is finished no later than 11.45pm and also whenever possible allocate rooms away from the music.

We hope to welcome you back to the hotel again very soon.
