Had a lovely overnight stay! Breakfast and room were lovely, and the hotel and staff were very accommodating to us and the dog! Could not recommend more highly if your looking for a dog friendly hotel in the area, walls are thick as well so no barking at slamming doors!

Booked a bed, breakfast, and evening meal room here for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Excellent customer service on the phone, and when checking in (I drove my parents to the hotel, chauffeur service!!) with staff that were both friendly and professional. The hotel itself is very well presented with a great view across 'The Slopes' & the park nearby....

A charming hotel, yes it's old, the floor boards are creaky and you tend to walk on slanted floors but what d you expect from such an old place. Our room was clean and a decent size. The bathroom was clean and modern. We stayed for two nights and ate in the hotel on the first night, in the bistro...

The were not very friendly, the room was very comfortable but very dated, the bathroom was well equipped but the shower wasn't very powerful, breakfast wasn't particularly good quality. There was building work going on to the side / rear of the building which start quite early.

We visited the Old Hall on the 28th February and Wow is the only words I have for the meal we had in the restaurant. The food was extremely well presented and tasted divine. The whole party was bowled away by the whole dining experience, thank you.

Visited as an overnight break in a journey. The hotel is very central in Buxton. It has a lovely olde world charm with very friendly staff. If parking your vehicle outside the hotel, buy parking token at hotel reception. We loved the character of the hotel. We were in Room 40 which was super comfortable including the bed and comfy...

Rather dated but this does not detract from the overall cleanliness and comfort. Very friendly staff in all areas of the hotel. Food good value for money, breakfast adequate and good choice.Overall a pleasant experience for myself and family. Particularly happy as this is a dog friendly hotel. But certainly not over-run with dogs for those who are not dog...

This is the place where Mary was locked up by Queen Elizabeth I so yes it has some pretty important history.

By and large towns and cities get the Hotels they deserve, and Buxton deserves The Old Hall. Buxton is not Bath nor Harrogate, and as a town it is none the worse for that. Buxton is friendly, interesting and unpretentious, and so is The Old Hall. Lovely big high ceilinged rooms. Comfy beds, a warm welcome and a brilliant breakfast...
