Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is a brief review of an overnight stopover from a couple travelling to a North West destination from East Anglia. We booked a superior double room via Best Western Reservations for "dinner, bed and breakfast". There was an issue with the internet booking which was resolved by Matthew online at the hotel. Thank you again. The room was spacious and airy unlike the chain corporate boxes. Fine view overlooking Buxton Park, but stayed during Storm Kathleen so limited glimpses in cloud cover of local fells. The double bed was as big as a king plus. Mattress was perfectly comfortable. Dinner and breakfast were both served in the huge and impressive conservatory "garden" room and approached after by-passing the hotel bar. Dinner menu included choice of courses from the full menu. An excellent meal accompanied by a bottle from a decent wine list. Breakfast was full of choice and cooked options and hot drinks ordered at table, but initial buffet starters, cereals and pastries are from servery tables and, thankfully, self service. Service at table and throughout our stay was exemplary and friendly. We highly recommend this hotel and restaurant after discounting others in town. It is suggested that booking should be made directly with the hotel. Parking is an essential and provided without charge next to the building with an overflow if required by groups. Buxton is surprisingly convenient for Cheshire and Manchester in addition to its being a well-known destination for location and activities itself.

I keep coming back to this hotel, having previously stayed in virtually every other hotel in Buxton including the most expensive. It is definitely Buxton's best hotel with the best food (hot and delicious even for fussy people like me), best staff (so friendly and helpful) and best parking (free). The pleasant, seven minute walk to the beautiful Buxton Opera House is worth it. Its location also makes it quieter than the town centre hotels.

Excellent hotel and restaurant. Travelled up to Buxton and Bakewell for an additional birthday treat for my son. Hotel staff were polite, friendly and courteous from start to finish. Hotel clean & tidy. Whilst noting other guest comments about nobody at the bar - there is a bell to use and staff busy multitasking arrive immediately so unsure what the issue is?

We upgraded the room,which although very nice was cold when we arrived.For the price we expected a bath (shower).We arrived back from town around 10.30pm,the lounge/bar was cold but we had a nightcap (coats on).Nice breakfast selection although the bacon and sausage was undercooked.Plus's were the view and location,and we were allowed to check into our room a little earlier..Would we stay again?jury is out as there are plenty to choose from and for the price for B&B its certainly not cheap.Buxton is a great location to explore the Peaks,although cyclists and locals in a hurry tend to spoil the experience of enjoying the scenery.

Deares Michealr, Thank you so much for your kind review. I am glad that you enjoyed your room upgrade. If you had let us know that you would like to have a bath, we would happily have arranged that for you, I am so terribly sorry about that. I am also very sorry that you thought the bar was cold. If you mentioned it to us, we would have brought you an extra heating fan as your comfort is our priority. Same goes for the your breakfast, it would have been our pleasure to bring you new sausages and bacon. How lovely that you enjoyed our location. We are quite fortunate to be located so close to the centre and yet, surrounded by greenery. I hope you do choose to come back. Wishing you all the very best, Lorena (Duty Manager)
