    Excellent location, good price on Booked.net, good service, lovely breakfast with white crisp table linen. Comfortable spacious room.

    Drinks in the bar were a bit too pricey.

    The location of the Hotel is fantastic, however the Hotel itself is somewhat tired, a major problem with these lovely old buildings.

    The Hotel was very impressive & in a good location. Rather run down in places but that did not bother us initially. Buxton is a lovely town with lots of history, lovely little one off shops & very good restaurants.

    First room was not as advertised, had to upgrade to a bigger room. cleanliness was poor. Breakfast was awful. Housekeeping was poor. Apart from the building nothing was 4 star.

    Elegant and charming hotel on top of a hill, overlooking Buxton town. A local landmark building. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast buffet.

    The hotel is a bit worn here and there. A renovation would help to restore the original splendour of this magnificent building.

    We sent our parents to stay in the Buxton Palace hotel as a present for their joint birthday. They couldn't have been happier with their stay. They have had a particularly tough year and we wanted them spoiled. We had booked a double room but on arival they were shown to a lovely suit. They came home refreshed and relaxed with only lovely things to say about their stay. Thank you all at Buxton they really needed that.

    Good location and from the outside impressive appearance.

    It is staffed by dull staff, lacking personality, warmth, competence. 2 star rooms with creaky floors, in our case a view only of the outside staff smoking shed, our friends room even worse. Small stupid shape and layout. (202&203) Good breakfast. Reminds me of hotel in CZ mountains pre revolution with same attitudes and lack of imagination and investment! Car parking charges on top of overpriced rooms the last straw!

    It was in a superb position overlooking Buxton and close to the theatre and shops etc. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean with superb comfy beds.

    Fabulous

    I loved the theme of the hotel which reminded me of india with the ornate ceilings. The staff made one welcome I THINK THE HOTEL HAS A LOYAL LONGSTANDING FOLLOWING AND COULD EASILY BE A TOP CLASS HOTEL IN EVERY RESPECT IT HAS GREAT POTENTIAL. I LOVED THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE HOTEL AND I WOULD STAY AGAIN AND RECOMMEND.

    I did not think my room was up to 4 star standard, it was very dated grubby. The paintwork should look clean and fresh. I DID NOT LIKE THE TOWELS ON THE BED IN THE SHAPE OF AN ELEPHANT AND THE OLD FASHIONED TELEVISION. THE DECOR IN THE ROOM WAS DATED. THE BATHROOM LEFT ALOT TO BE DESIRED. IT WAS NOT UP TO 4 STAR STANDARD. THE FITTINGS WERE BADLY FITTED BY THE PLUMBER. THE BATH SIDE PANEL WAS BROKEN AND HANGING OFF AND THE TILES AROUND THE BATH HAD BLACK MOULD IN THE GROUT. THE TAP SURROUND WAS DIRTY AND THE SHOWER CURTAIN WAS SOILED AROUND THE EDGES. THE SOAP IN THE BATHROOM AROUND THE SINK WAS OUT OF THE PACKET AND HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY USED AND THERE WAS ANOTHER EMPTY BOX AROUND THE SINK. THE FIRE DOOR IN THE CORRIDOR WAS BANGING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. I FEEL THAT IN THIS DAY AND AGE HOTELS SHOULD RECOGNISE THE QUALITY EXPECTED BY THE PUBLIC AS THERE IS GREAT COMPETITION OUT THERE AND IN ORDER FOR THE BUSINESS TO SURVIVE YOU HAVE TO KEEP AHEAD OF THE GAME

    What a great location for getting around in Buxton. The staff were really welcoming. The hotel was full of character. The bed was really comfortable and we had all we needed in the room. I found a double room online for £75 for the night and this was certainly a bargain for two of us. We would definintely stay again next time we are in Buxton.

    My only negative comments would be that the self service English breakfast was a bit rubbery due to it having sat there for a short while. The hotel does look a little run down in places; decor a little dated, tape on carpet in corridors and it could do with a general lick of paint, but all of that said, I would still stay again because the building has so much character, the staff seemed lovely, it was good value and the location was perfect.
