Perfect location for Buxton.

The hotel is right in the centre and easy walking distance from the station. However, the hotel is very big and tired. Its clean but needs updating. The gym and pool are good but the pool is not as big as it looks in the photo's. Staff are very friendly and there's plenty of them.

There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, not high class but a good alternative to the hotel restaurant. The theatre is also within walking distance.

Stayed here at Xmas and was disappointed by the state of repair in the less public areas. This time we had a great stay. Upgraded to a much bigger room for £20, massive bed, huge bathroom, and had clearly been maintained recently (slight paint smell). Staff were all very friendly and the big Derbyshire breakfast was ace!

Faded opulence

Stayed for one night hoping for a special experience. Can't fault the staff, everyone was friendly and chatty, a cheery good morning from the housekeeping staff too. The main public areas still have a bit of wow factor and seem decently well maintained. Sadly the corridors are desperate for refurb and look really run down. The room was spacious and had agreat view over Buxton. Sadly again tired fixtures and a run down bathroom let it down. A loose window rattled all night and really needs attention. Bit of a shock at being charged £4 a pint and over £4 for parking ... It's Buxton lads not London! Overall, I just felt that this stunning building deresved a bit more tlc. I understand that it's changed ownership a few times, I just hope that the current owners invest in their asset.
