Stayed in October with a spa and dinner package, room was on a mezzanine floor and was lovely and spacious with a bath and separate shower, fluffy bath robes and slippers. The bed was really comfortable. The spa is amazing, the water from the hot spring makes it really special. Had a couple of treatments both were great with no attempt to sell products. The rooftop pool is truly amazing. The spa area will be even better post covid when everything is open including the cafe. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, the venison was spectacular but service was patchy. It was a similar story the next morning at breakfast, excellent food but the service lets it down hence 4 stars. We were pointed in the direction of the other hotel for parking when we checked in so no issues there. In summary its an amazing hotel which has been created in a really sympathetic way considering the building, once the restaurant service is sorted it will be 5 stars for sure, can’t wait to try it again post covid.

Having know this building all my life and seen it’s sad decline we were so excited to see the finished building and we certainly weren’t disappointed. What they’ve managed to achieve within the restrictions of a grade 1 listed building is simply stunning ! We were lucky enough to have a junior suite and I have to say it was worth the extra money, the view out of the window across the fountains and the sweep of the building is like something out of a movie. The suite was huge and with the 10pm restrictions for closing the bar we got a bottle of champagne and had a dance around our suite to some of the Rat Packs finest, they seemed to suit the occasion perfectly. The cocktails were excellent and very well priced.As Sean Connery had die on the the day we checked in we had vodka martinis, obviously shaken not stirred. The food in the restaurant was gorgeous and the steak tartare starter was divine, you can certainly tell the quality of the beef used when it’s raw and this was perfect. The spa is simply beautiful and the fusion of the old & new sections is seemless. In view that the crescents rival in northern 5 star spas is probablyRuddings Park in Harrogate it’s certainly an equal. Out of all the plus points I’ve highlighted the biggest plus has to be the staff who seem to be genuinely proud that they work in such a hotel and it seems totally wrong to only be able to mention a few of them. Tom the concierge has really worked hard to engage witH the guest, informing them about different aspects of the hotels history and renovation. Ellie who was our waitress in the restaurant was so helpful when we asked for recommendations on some of the dishes on the menu and she chose a perfect wine for our choices. Finally there seemed to be quite reviews saying that the hotel is expensive ? I think a lot of these people need to remember it a 5 star hotel. The cocktail prices are similar to those of a smart pub and the restaurant prices similar to a city centre, so it’s certainly not expensive. It may have taken 30+ years to get the hotel donebut it’s certainly a triumph !

We had watched this incredible building fall into disrepair over the years and then, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, saw it take it's place as the the jewel in Buxton's Crown! I was determined to stay in this beautiful building and it's opening coincided with my Birthday and so it was a 'no brainer' to book a room. Well, we weren't disappointed, we had a lovely Crescent overlooking the fountains at the front. We had a warm welcome from Jonathan, The Concierge, who showed us our room and who, incidentally, had left me a Birthday Card (thank you, Jonathan)! We had arrived slightly early and, as our room was ready, we were able to check in at that time. This gave us a wonderful opportunity to try the stunning spa facilities, with not too many people around.. It was just incredible to dip into the almost original Victorian spa pool, with untreated hot spring water bubbling out. We then tried the warm indoor/outdoor pool on the rooftop and the various other facilities. We had decided to eat out that evening, but, of course, had breakfast the next morning. Quite a modern dining room and we had a nice booth overlooking the back courtyard. The fabulous staff couldn't have been more helpful and it has to be one of the best breakfasts we have had in any hotel we have visited. We had freshly squeezed fruit juices, smoothies and home made bread, with a good choice of cooked breakfast. All in all a fabulous experience and one which we would like to repeat as soon as we are able!

We stayed for 2 nights, and as the title, the spa and every member of staff in the spa is excellent. We had several treatments and they were exceptional. An added bonus was that there was no attempt to sell us stuff. We have been to other spas when the staff have talked throughout the treatment abiut how we out to it.... We have never been back to those! Our room was OK, and we knew that it was moderately small. However it could do with another shelf in the wardrobe or elsewhere. Because of Covid, other items had been removed - or we assumed assume that they had been. It's the first hotel of that calibre where thre is no pen/pencil or writing pad. It will be interesting to see whether it is the same next year. It as good to have a bath as well as a shower. The rooms were not cleaned the next morning, but we understand that is another Covid requirement. We had a great time, but only worth 4 stars at the most because of the restaurant, which is so disorganised. It needs a good maitre 'd to sort it out. The room was never full due to Covid restrictions, and they could not possibly cope with their current arrangements. Dinner was good, though the wine took an age to come. Why? Breakfast was a disaster. We appeared to have the most inefficient waiter of the lot, and ironically the oldest. 10 minutes before our order was taken. Tea came quickly, but we then asked for some hot water (it was strong). 15 minutes later it had still not come. One of us had chosen kipper, and the other bacon, egg and tomato. Mm, we were presented with one plate? How efficient can you be? And not realise that it was wrong? Then another 15 minutes before I got the breakfadt ordered. Just as well theyhad been on one plate as it was the smallest kipper we had ever seen. Breakfast on the second day was marginally better, but still improvements needed. It was interesting that the best waiters were the younger ones, with the young woman definitely the best. Apologising profusely is fine, but then if the next day is not ,much better .......? It is a real shame as the rest of the hotel is great. As an afterthought: please let clients know about parking arrangements. You can get a ticket from a neighbouring hotel for £3 for 14 hours

Just back from a two night stay at Buxton Crescent, and don't know where to start! Spectacular hotel, amazing building renovated to a fantastic standard with lots of history and character. We stayed in a Crescent room which was absolutely lovely, really spacious with gorgeous decor and great bathroom. We've been to quite a lot of spas across the UK/Europe and this is one of the best for us - great facilities and highly recommend the rooftop pool. Had dinner in the restaurant and the food was absolutely perfect - great choice. and service. Staff at the hotel provided fantastic service throughout our stay. Friendly, genuine and professional - nothing really was too much trouble. My husband is visually impaired meaning new environments can sometimes pose a challenge. The staff were very attentive and worked hard to ensure that he was comfortable at all times - a huge thanks for making our stay extra special, and see you again very soon!
