Good old fashioned service and comfort. Lovely quiet location next to the lake and handy for the Opera House and gardens. Visited this hotel on several occasions now and had a pleasant stay each time. Good traditional English breakfast and friendly staff.

This is a deservedly popular hotel/guest house overlooking the Pavilion Gardens. OK we didn't have a view from our bedroom but you'd have to be a clever 'mine host' to work it so that every room had a park view! The owner was very pleasant and welcoming as were the other staff. Breakfast was a most pleasant occasion (though 2... More

Lovely, friendly, family run hotel with views overlooking the lake in the pavilion gardens. Very reasonable rates but you may need to book a little in advance....it is popular. Excellent full English breakfast. We will definitely return.

We wanted somewhere close to the theatre with good reviews and a reasonable price - Tripadvisor usually provides the answer, and it did. Great location, lots of parking, friendly staff, good large room with en-suite and a good breakfast. Location gets 5/5 easily - right on the Broad Walk only a short 5 minute walk into the centre of Buxton.... More

We stayed midweek and had an excellent view of the Lake from our hotel room. The staff were friendly and helpful, as well as being forthcoming with useful local information. The room was scrupulously clean and tidy. We just gaped out of the window across the lake for about an hour when we first arrived! The hotel is a short... More

Stayed for one night at this hotel. The position overlooking the park and the easy walk into town is its saving grace. Looks great from outside but inside is very tired and cheaply decorated, the ensuite especially needs up grading. The car parking is limited and very tight. Breakfast was ok nothing special to write home about. There is an... More
