    Good

    the hotel looked amazing from the outside. The breakfast was good, had large selection. Rooms were big. Pool was fine with sauna and steam room

    The hotel was grand, however does need a refurb, loose floor tiles, paint cracking, rooms were dark and generally just needed an uplift. gym was a bit odd with it being in several different rooms.

    Hotel staff were excellent. The location to the centre of the town was great. Leisure facilities were good. Help yourself breakfast and service of staff in the morning was second to none. All told a great stay at this large hotel.

    The cost of parking on site appeared and was a little excessive considering we were resident in hotel for 2 nights.

    Guest rating

    Central location in Buxton.

    Noisy bedroom doors which slam. Queues for tables at peak breakfast times. Tired and dated bedroom furnishings and facilities.

    Good

    The once-opulent building and its commanding position in the town

    The hotel is in need of substantial refurbishment; its former glory is now rather 'dog eared' in some of the public areas and certainly in our room, 201 (I don't think the windows could have been cleaned this century!). I suppose this adds to the character of the place. We found some of the restaurant staff rather too intrusive in their quest to check that 'everything was alright' - we must have told five people that it was! Nevertheless, this is a splendid place to spend a few days relaxing.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The Hotel is beautifully situated and very grand.

    I booked a double room however when I arrived reception stated that I was single occupancy and I was given a small room at the end of the hotel with a poor view and faded decor. I have stayed at this hotel before with my partner and had a beautiful room so I was disappointed.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful hotel, friendly staff and excellent location.

    Very disappointed with the room - needs up-dating and very noisy at night.

    Ideally located in city centre next to railway station. Great swimming pool and sauna/steam-bath.

    Good

    Pleasant if not terribly efficent staff ( Many non-UK workers). The basic dinner was excellent value for money and was served quickly and in a friendly manner. Breakfast was rushed and we were urged to leave our table well before service ended. Not good.

    It has to be said the bedrooms are long overdue for an upgrade, as is the main body of the hotel. This could be a very pleasant location if it was brought up to date. As it is, it falls well behind other hotels in the Barcelo portfolio (Those we have visited )

    Very good

    Staff were very friendly and catered well for my partner who has an allergy

    The breakfast was very poor, possible the worst I have had in a hotel. No juice left and sausages were very poor and very little choice.

    Guest rating

    The breakfast offer of £5 per person was good value for money. The central location of the hotel was very useful and it was good being so close to the centre of Buxton. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    The swimming pool was a bit of a disappointment, the lack of male changing facilities during our stay was an issue but understandable as the pool area like much of the hotel was outdated and needed renovation. The decor in the rooms was very faded and could do with being updated. It certainly isn't a luxury four star hotel.

    Superb

    Very central to the theatre and offering everthing you could need

    I think the rooms are probably in need of an update, but they were still lovely.

  • 6.2
    Good

    its position and ease of access; the ground floor amenities and comfort of lounge chairs

    I asked the receptioon clerk why an establishment which advertised itself as a four star hotel could provide only one chair in a double bedroom. Even in a stated 'standard room' was one guest expected to stand up? No handle on bathroom door

    Superb

    the hotel is very palacial as the name states it is very grand and you get the feeling of how it would have been back when it was first built
