This hotel is such an imposing building that guests cannot fail to be impressed by the architecture and history. My friend and I paid for a dinner bed and breakfast rate which I would definitely not do again. The dinner was a carvery which was very poor quality and very little choice. We were not aware of this when we...

On booking the hotel, it was highlighted that we need not pay until check out. On arrival at Reception they would not release the key to me until I had paid. I explained that I was waiting for my friend, and that they had taken a swipe of my card, so could I access the room. Reluctantly the Receptionist agreed....

I went with my husband and 2 young kids. The hotel itself looked exactly like the pictures showed on their website-old fashioned and dated but I held my judgment till the end of our stay. The hotel itself is situated in the heart of Buxton with the town centre just 5 minutes walking distance, which was perfect. The driveway into...

Stayed here recently with my wife. We got a really good deal on Bookings.com - £45 for two nights. I don't really know how to describe this place. It's sort of charmingly sad. It's dated, tired and broken. But at the same time it's got charm, character and bags of history. It was built in 1878. That's impressive as far...

As newcomers to Buxton we were impressed from the moment we arrived. We booked our room for a joint anniversary / 70th birthday celebration and we had requested a room with a view. On check-in, we found we had been upgraded to the Peveril Suite which was everything we could have wished for – indeed so much better than flowers...

As soon as you approach the hotel the shear size and magnificent grand surroundings are a treat on the eyes. When inside the hotel the first thing that grabs your attention is the georgious, grand, Cinderella staircase and marble pillars but it's a shame that the rest of the hotels decor seems a little outdated compared to the outside and...

Present from my partner to retreat away for a couple of days to recharge the batteries. This came about via a Groupon voucher and we are always interested in trying new places. Situated in the beautiful area of Buxton, this grand building is a real presence. As I have touched on prior, this visit was part of a Groupon voucher...

Lovely hotel, clean nice rooms, quiet nights sleep. Staff were also very friendly. Close to lots of nice restaurants including Indian Palace. Parking charge a bit steep (£4.50) but can park elsewhere for free. Overall great hotel, look forward to returning.

Lives on its reputation felt like we had come for a weekend stay in an old peoples home . Very grand in its day but think this hotel will be in serious trouble when new places open. 1st evening meal we cancelled as we didn't want a carvery which consisted of a chicken casserole or a veggie option or turkey...

I work in the hospitality (hotel) industry so i know how horrible some trip advisor reviews can be but i am going to give my honest opinion of this hotel. On arrival i was amazed at the building it is beautiful. On arrival it is clear you pay for parking which is usual for 4 star hotel, £4.50 for 24...
