Grand hotel in its prime, now rather run down and catering largely for coach parties and wedding groups- or so it seemed on our visit. Bedrooms small but adequate, reasonable bathroom. Very good central location. Service slow. Reasonably priced.

This was a last minute booking for a one night stay in Buxton to do some walking in the area. The building must have been fantastic in its day but now sadly some of it looks worse for wear. It's location is really good to visit everything Buxton has to offer and it's walking distance to the train station. Room...

Me and my two friends went for a spa day at this 'Palace' and how the spa itself was underwhelming with only a pool, small sauna and steam room to give it its 'spa' title it was an acceptable little break from the children. The real disaster happened as soon as we stepped foot into the restaurant. We were met...

Had a lovely stay at the palace Hotel Buxton. Palace Hotel, built in 1868, is a prominent feature of the Buxton skyline on the hill near the railway station. The hotel has been taken over by Britannia and they are working hard to upgrade this impressive building.  If you are a person who does not appreciate the history and grandeur...

The palace hotel is a magnificent building in the centre of Buxton and within a couple of minutes walk of the theatre and the town centre. I can only imagine the grandeur when the hotel was built, the magnificent high ceilings and the open staircase are incredible. However it's plain to see that the whole hotel has seen better days,...

I was pondering for some time whether to book this hotel as there is a lot of mixed reviews, but I am really glad that I did. If I'm honest, I'm a little puzzled by some of the very negative feedback, as it seems totally different to my experience. I can only think that some parts of the hotel may...
