Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is the oldest hotel in England. Also known for having had Mary Queen of Scots live here for some time. Don't make this put you off - the hotel rooms have been refurbished, while the general areas have been updated but maintain the old-world charm.

We stayed in a double room. The beds are very comfortable, and despite the floor being slightly slope-y, the bathrooms are modern and new and the room fitted out well. It feels luxurious, without being overly fussy. There is a teddy bear that comes with each room, available for "adoption" - which is a very child-friendly touch.

Breakfast is excellent and generous, and definitely recommended.

Wifi is also complimentary - but there were connection problems when I stayed.

A top choice for Buxton.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have issues with receiving mobile phone signal - so be aware if you have an import...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. We are indeed the oldest hotel in England, and our very proud of the history surrounding the building. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed this aspect of your trip.

The teddy bears seem to be popular with children and adults alike!!

I shall pass on your kind comments to the staff and hope we can welcome you back in the future.

Got married here. The staff were friendly and the preparations were good for our big day. Few things were missed out though. The suite we stayed in was really nice and the breakfast included was tasty as well as a good selection of fried and cereal, fruit etc. Would recomend this place for couple wanting to get married as the packages are really good and even if just staying overnight or visiting the restaurant it's well worth a visit. Especially for the surroundings to. Beautiful place is Buxton.

We stayed here with our three kids aged 17,17 and 12, we stayed in the attic flat and it was perfect for us. The stairs to the attic are very steep and probably not suitable for young kids -carrying bags up was a bit tough because we had so much luggage!
The dinner, which was included in our package, was of a very high quality and we retired to our room feeling very satisfied!
Breakfast was also wonderful.
The location is excellent, right across the road from the Opera House and Pavilion Garden (which has a good playground/exercise park).
We only only stayed one night and I wish we had more time to enjoy the hospitality of the staff and the delightful town.
Hopefully one day I can return for a longer stay!

This hotel is excellent, superb location; great staff; lovely rooms and a fantastic breakfast buffet. All in all excellent value for money and the perfect place to stay to enjoy Buxton and the surrounding area.
I particularly liked that all the bedrooms are different, tastefully furnished and decorated and each one just a little different. Parts of the hotel are very old - interesting sloping floor in our rooms but the plumbing is right up to date!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review on TripAdvisor. You are very much correct, every single room is decorated individually and each has its own character. We are lucky to be situated directly in the centre of Buxton, overlooking the gorgeous Pavilion Gardens. I'm really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time here and hope to welcome you back in the future.

Stayed at the Old Hall Hotel with friends for a short mid-week break. We had a wonderful time - lovely rooms, welcoming and helpful staff and a great location. The hotel has great character - we stayed in the oldest part which has been sympathetically and well brought up to date. Didn't try the restaurant, however the breakfasts were very tasty with a good choice on the menu.
