My partner brought me to Buxton for a birthday trip, and we stayed at Roseleigh for 4 nights. The location is fantastic, with views of the park, and I can’t fault the room at all. Comfortable bed, amazing shower (I am sad our house doesn’t have a shower like that). Breakfast was fantastic and we really appreciated how varied the menu was - I am vegetarian and Roseleigh offered a very nice veggie cooked breakfast. The proprietor was really helpful, and gave us good advice on walks and what days to go to avoid bad weather. There was enough car parking, and we never had to fight for a space. Perhaps most importantly, social distance and sanitising measures were in place and effective, with breakfasts being staggered and hand sanitiser pumps on the walls at regular intervals. Overall we had a great time, and we would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Dear Elaine Thank you for your positive feedback which is very much appreciated. We are glad that you enjoyed the location, bedroom, breakfast and our approach to Covid 19 measures (for whom we have to thank and highly recommend - Rafael Cobos of Cleaning MasterClass with whom we completed a Cleaning & Infection Control Course and applied the methodology to the Roseleigh and in the training of our staff). We would love to see you again back at the Roseleigh and the Peak District. With best regards Gerard, Maggi, and The Team

We had a lovely few days here. We opted for a lake view room which was worth every penny - it was spacious and it was restful to sit in the comfy armchairs looking over the park. Every part of the guest house was spotlessly clean and very well organised to comply with COVID regulations. The service at breakfast service was very efficient and the breakfast itself was delicious - so much choice and perfectly cooked. Gerard was a mine of information about the area and gave lots of suggestions for places to visit. They also have laminated sheets of local walks to borrow. Bakewell, Castleton, Eyam and Derwent Valley dams were in east striking distance, as was Chatsworth (on our list for a future visit). All in all, a great stay and we hope to return.

Stopped for 1 night. House is beautiful set opposite the lake/park. Very clean but our room was very small. The window led onto the fire escape, so we couldn’t leave the window open. Slightly over priced fora room with no view.

Response from Gerard Heelan, General Manager at Roseleigh
Responded 15 Oct 2020
Dear Kerry We are aware that the room was booked upon your behalf by a family member , we did approach the person who booked the room at the very beginning as in our response below - "You were asking for something special - we would encourage a lake view room to be selected for something special" but received no response , thus the original booking was retained as requested. The Roseleigh was built in 1871 and we work within the remit of a Grade 2 Listed Status building. In some rooms the en suite facilities are compact, but we have tried to maximise every aspect of what we offer in the bedrooms and en suites. We also believe that all clients are always offered a professional level of customer service by all members of our staff. Being an historic building the Roseleigh offers an insight and connection back to a fascinating timeline in Buxton and its association with Chatsworth House (and beyond to Mary Queen of Scots who regularly took the Buxton Waters). The architects of the Roseleigh applied their planning of the room dimensions to the 19th century and therefore hopefully people will recognise this when they decide to stay with us and allow for its historic nature. To maximise the experience for our guests we continually invest in the Roseleigh every year. We have made a major capital investment to offer a comprehensive Free Ruckus Wi-Fi system, 43 inch flat screen TVs, and all en suite facilities were renewed in 2019. We always provide complete information to our clients of what the rooms entail by means of our virtual room tours - all our rooms can be viewed via the Virtual Tour facility on our website We are assessed by the AA every year. Their assessors provide a methodical system to all establishments – this year they awarded The Roseleigh 4 Stars’ Gold Award category, whilst we have retained for our 3rd year running our listing in the Good Hotel Guide 2019/2020/2021. Yours sincerely Gerard & Maggi
