On arrival there was plenty of free parking in the hotels car park then we had a warm welcome at the reception and our room was ready for us at 1pm instead of a 3pm check in as stated. Our room was large, clean and plenty of tea/coffee supplied. The bathroom was clean and toiletries were provided. The bed linen...

My husband and myself stayed here for 2 nights after booking an impromptu trip to Buxton. I'd read some of the reviews and they were pretty much mixed so we thought we'd chance it. Yes, the hotel is very tired and worn. The curtains in our room were all but falling off the rails. I didn't dare sit on 1...

Only decided to stay over in Buxton for New Years Eve a few days before. All other hotels fully booked. Reviews generally poor for this hotel so went with very low expectations but simply needed a bed for the night and the location was excellent for the Opera House and many restaurants. On arrival we found ample parking, pleasant check...

Having read some of the very damning reviews on trip adviser, it was with some trepidation that we booked into the Buckingham for two nights. First impressions on entry was that it was a , little worn and old fashioned , however we were greeted warmly by the lady on reception and given keys to room 15 on the second...

I was a little concerned about some of the reviews this place had. Largely unfounded I guess. The place is old - Victorian or early Edwardian I guess and not had any serious work on it for a while. It is an old building with each room converted to en-suite as is the norm these days. This means the rooms'...

This is the worse place I have ever stayed . Our room is on a slope and there is a big crack in the wall. Reading that it has been condemned and being knocked down has made me feel uneasy. The bar area was discusting and dirty . There is no doubt that it has just been left to ruin...

The decor throughout the hotel is tired and there is no breakfast available but there are plenty of cafes about. our basic double room on the third floor was spacious with two armchairs, comfy bed, tea and coffee facilities and had a good sized bathroom with separate shower and roll top bath. Really sad to find that plans have been...

We Have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. Our room was clean and very spacious. There was plenty of hot water, a big bath and a powerful shower. Exactly what is needed after a days hard hiking. Two beds in the room both very comfy. Plenty of tea and coffee. The hotel is tired but then...
