                    The real ale bar was very good with excellent service and value for money

                    The rooms are very tired the whole hotel could do with a refurbishmant

                  • Family with children
                    5.0

                    It was warm (but probably because the heating was working overtime to counteract the front door being permanently left open). Staff were friendly and the breakfasts were decent. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Great supply of guide books are available.

                    The rooms were in need of a deep clean and/or refurbishment. The bathrooms were outdated. TVs need replacing. Wi-Fi only worked intermittently. The 'quirky' film theme (pictures of film stars wherever you go) is tired and worn, as are the pictures of football players/teams which adorn one wall. The workmen who stay overnight provide an unwelcome wake-up call.

                    5.8

                    It was close to the centre of Buxton. Easy to walk to all amenaties

                    Decoration looked tired and could do with a spruce up

                  • Older travelers
                    9.6

                    quirky, slightly fussy decor but on a theme

                    Very warm welcome - staff attentive, friendly and efficient.Restaurant menu very good quality and variety..Room very comfortable and spacious and newly refurbished

                    Disappointing ambience of restaurant

                    2Nd time ive stayed here.. And its not often I ever stay somewhere twice. But missus wanted to see this place for herself. Its still just as eccentric, just as quirky, but this time got to sample the large selection of bourbons aswell as the real ales. Also got a huge 4 poster bed in our room! Great hotel, friendly, full of character, lots of fun.

                    Room was double price of last year.. Ouch. Thats inflation for you!

                    The friendliness of the place ... near to Pavillion and Opera House ideal location ... breakfast was great plenty to chose from friendly staff nice pleasant surrounding ... if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with friendly staff this is for you ... could do with slightly updating but was clean and beds comfortable so it was fine ... enjoyed our stay and would re-visit again

                  • Group of friends
                    9.2

                    The price of the food was very good and was delicious, also excellent prices for drinks. T

                    Decor in some areas needs a little updating.

                  • Older travelers
                    9.2

                    Well located, quirky, hotel with an excellent "Good Beer Guide" bar and good value restaurant. Helpful reception, restaurant and bar staff. Excellent breakfast with good choice of cerials, fresh fruit and cooked options. The latest newspaper front page displays were a bonus and if you are a footie fan the WSC displays were unmissable. Don't go if you like bland do go if you like something different.

                    TV on in both bar rooms.

                  • Older travelers
                    5.4

                    the evening meal we payed for was very bland and not at all appetising.My wife and I left three quarters of it.The breakfast was also the same.I ordered a morning news paper the day before and the next morning nobody new about it so did not get one brilliant eh.

                  • Older travelers
                    7.0

                    The location was perfect including car parking facilities etc. Breakfast choice was very good. It was very busy due to the English school break but the staff coped very well.

                    The only downside was the smell of the bed linen. Obviously fully washed but not dried properly so musty smell both from sheets and pillow cases. Suggest staff ensure linen is aried and fully dried before making up beds.

                    It is close to my family who live in Buxton, staff were very helpfull

                    Decor in my room was a little tired/dated

                    Excellent breakfast with good service. Comfortable and clean room with tea coffe making provided. Good location for exploring Buxton within easy walking distance. Great to have a hotel who allow you to take your dog.
