We stopped at The Westminster for just one night, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room (04) was very quiet with a lovely view overlooking the park, it was very comfortable with a nice bathroom. The breakfast was plentiful and very well cooked. When we visit Buxton again we will definitely consider stopping at The Westminster again.

We only stayed for one night passing through. Situated close to the town centre and overlooking a lovely park. Good parking, received a warm welcome and the room was very clean and very comfortable, with tea/coffee making facilities the en-suite was very nice too. We had a good nights sleep and there was lots of choice at breakfast. We had...

This is definitely a guest house, not a 4* hotel. Our double room, overlooking the fire escape, was adequate. Very small TV and tiny travel kettle with a few tea/coffee sachets (no biscuits!). Rather compact shower room. Nice little guest lounge with an honesty bar, although I felt the need to whisper to my husband so I didn't disturb the...

Looked last minute for a cheap place to stay in Buxton and was not disappointed, even though we arrived early Nick was happy to show us to our room. The room was clean and warm and very inviting for an afternoon nap. After exploring the town we found the hotel was within stumbling distance as we called it a night...

Within 7 minute walk of the main town centre attractions. many pubs and restaurants to choose from. Some better than others. In the heart of the Peak district a great...

Stayed here with work, very good room and breakfast. More like a B&B than hotel, bit dated but comfortable. Very friendly people and good choice breakfast. Lovely location although an evening meal menu would have been great.

2 stars - one for the location and one for the view [which I understand we paid extra for]. This is not a hotel as proclaimed, it is at best a B and B, shabby and out of date. There was a serious smell of damp on arrival, not a great start. The room was up some very steep stairs...

We stayed here for one night following a visit to the Opera House. Room was lovely and warm and cosy, perfect to come back to on a freezing cold, wet night. Generous hospitality tray, and breakfast was delicious - even the eggs were perfect. We will return here the next time we visit the Opera House. Well recommended.

The first thing we noticed on Arrival was the views of the Gardens across from the Hotel and the lovely Autumnal views. We were greeted as if we were old friends and promptly showed to our room, overlooking the Gardens. The room was spacious and complete with WiFi. The bathroom was also large and if a little dated was ideal...

Lovely location.. overlooking the small lake / pond. We were met by a friendly lady who checked us in. The room was clean and tidy with fresh towels on the bed. Our bed was very comfy and the room was well heated even with the terrible weather we had :( We both had a Full English for breakfast.. cooked perfectly....
