Bedroom furniture from the 1930's and a hotel elevator which dates back to and seems unchanged from the 1920's (and that's not a joke). So if that is not your thing then don't stay here. But once you see beyond this the hotel has character and I liked it here once I got over my initial impressions. It also fits...

We booked a one night stay as we were visiting the Opera House in Buxton - lovely old hotel on the main square opposite the Pavilion gardens. Loved the entire place - old England! Pleasant walk in the gardens after breakfast and wandered round the craft fair in the Pavilion. Apparently the hotel is due for a refurb - hope...

We stayed at The Old Hall Hotel for two nights and couldn't fault the cleanliness or comfort of this lovely old hotel. We took our little Cairn Lulu who was made to feel very welcome and we were able to eat in the lounge for breakfast where she could sit with us, although we obviously couldn't take her into the...

We stayed here for a friends wedding last weekend and my wife and I were happy from start to finish. As any parent knows, if your children are happy, you are happy, so it was good to see that the hotel considers its younger guests as important as the adults! More of that later... Our friends wedding took place in...

We had two rooms for an overnight stay. We arrived about 7:30, but the bar and restaurant had no guests which is always a bit worrying. We decided to go for a walk first. The entire town is heaving with pubs and restaurants - none of which had more than a few tables in use - so we put it...

My husband & I dined here on the evening of 4 October & were very pleased with our experience. We opted for the pre theatre menu which, at £22 per head for 3 courses, is fantastic.
