Palace hotel Buxton
We stayed in a family room during half term. The hotel is beautiful but looking a little tired in places. It's a large grand building and I imagine up keep is similar to painting the 4th bridge. The expense and time required to keep it on top top lines would be considerably
We were in family room 122. Two single beds and one double which was great for our 12 and 10 year olds as they always moan when they have to share a double ! Lots of room a small side table a two chairs. Bathroom tired but clean and serviceable shower could have had a bit more power. Downside were the beds , 4 nights of not great sleep as the bed was very hard and uncomfortable.
Sports facilities : fair size pool but water a little chilly. Sauna and steam room good. Gym good selection of techno gym equipment and a separate room of free weights. Never busy. Pool open till 10pm so kids happy as no restrictions for them.
Food : we were on a DBB package. The children were always offered a kids menu - usual selection of fish fingers burgers or nuggets but our children ate off the adult menu and we paid 50% of that cost. Worth it ! Food was a very good standard and the menu changed every day offering 5 choices of starter main and desert. Breakfast a buffet style with cereal bar, hot fry up, toast, pastries, cold meat and cheeses, fruit and pastries. Certainly set you up for the day ! Would certainly take the dinner option again if we re visit. Serving staff excellent
All in a great hotel for a family break and we would stay here again if we are in the area. Our break for 4 nights DBB two adult two children cost £600 in half term I thought that is was very good value for money. It's a shame they feel the need to charge £3 a day to park our car in their car park.
