This is a beautiful apartment, newly refurbished, well decorated with lovely furnishings and it could have been so perfect for our family weekend away.
Sadly, it wasn't. The apartment is in an old building, above and very near to a busy pub and nightclubs. The windows (beautiful sash windows with shutters) are single glazed. Even with the windows and shutters as tightly closed as we could get them, the noise from the pub, music and revelry outside was so great we could hear the individual conversations of the people outside. On the Friday night the music and noise continued until 2 am, and on the Saturday night there was loud music until 4 that made the floors vibrate, and noise outside until 5 am.
For two families with 5 small children aged 7 months to 7 years, we're used to interrupted sleep, but this was really too much to cope with. It's such a shame, a lovely apartment in a great little town, but if you can't sleep, it's really not worth staying here at all. Internal double glazing might help to reduce the noise levels somewhat.
We'll visit Buxton again, but won't stay here.
