Paid £75 for a Saturday night in January. Charming hotel that's certainly not modern but this just adds to the appeal in my opinion. Arrived at 1030am and the receptionist was happy to check us in as our rooms were ready. Located about 5 mins walk from the town centre so not too strenuous. Breakfast was good too for £13.50,...

We spent three days at Lee Wood Hotel including New Years Eve. We were made welcome and throughout we were impressed by the quality of the staff and their sense of being a happy team. Our room was excellent and the both breakfasts and evening meals were of a very high standard.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel and it was lovely. On arrival ample parking and easy to find off the main road. We checked in without fuss and our room was a very good size with everything we needed. The staff who were on duty over breakfast were wonderful, very polite and nothing too much trouble....

Hotel is dated by modern standard, but had a certain charm. Very clean and comfortable. Staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient. Within walking distance of the centre of Buxton, ample partying and nicely positioned. Hotel represents great comfort and value. No problems in recommending.

We wanted a 2 night stay in the Peak district so we could visit Chatsworth House and see the Christmas decorations there and this hotel proved a good choice for that. The bed and breakfast rate was reasonable and the breakfast was excellent - a huge choice of everything! (at least 7 varieties of juice for example!) The location is...

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed visiting Chatsworth House as we have only heard good things about the Christmas decorations this year. We can't believe that Christmas is over again so soon and trust that yours was thoroughly enjoyable. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and service and apologize that the hotel...

We stayed at the hotel a few years ago and loved it. Unusually in these matters, it was just as good this time. For a fairly large hotel, it is remarkably calm and peaceful and you feel as if there are only a handful of guests. In fact the hotel was almost full. We didn't have dinner, but the breakfasts...

I was travelling home on a dirty night, and needed to break my journey. I found the Lee Wood, and it was just what I wanted. Elegant, well trained staff, a nice bar and a very good restaurant. I settled back in comfort. It is an old building, and I was in the annex, so no elevators. But it was...

Absolutely loved our stay here, great staff and lovely rooms and very handy for the town centre. Would definitely stay here again when visiting the area. The hotel is clearly very old and a lot of the original fixtures are there but the hotel is very clean and doesn't feel like an 'old' hotel. If you want somewhere to stay...
