Never mind the tacky décor by someone clearly obsessed with films and plays. I stayed at this hotel while on holiday with my husband and our 8-year old son in April. No, my issue with it is purely down to health and safety. During our first night there my husband had a seizure and, according to the paramedics, we couldn't have been more unlucky with the room we were given - a small room on the 3rd floor where we would get to through a maze of stairs and corridors. The lift is very old, claustrophobic and slow - it hardly had the space for my husband in a wheelchair and one of the paramedics. I had to rush down the stairs, along with the other paramedic and their heavy life saving machinery, so that we made sure we would get to the ground floor first than the lift, which wasn't difficult. I now find it shocking that at around 00:00 no one dared come out of their bedrooms when I desperately shouted for help. Luckily, the recepcionist was then close to our room, heard my cry for help and made that very important phone call to 999 (for which I am forever thankful) and assisted us on our way out. As for Buxton, it is a beautiful town, but definitely not the best of destinations to fall ill as the nearest major hospital is in Stockport. This means that the all process of waiting for the ambulance (excellent care provided) and getting to hospital, via a challenging road, can take about an hour.
