“Another lovely weekend at the Lee Wood”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Just back from a weekend stay at the Leewood with five friends. As always everything about the stay was excellent: the staff and owners are always so friendly and helpful, the food is wonderful and rooms excellent standard and very comfortable.

Stayed at this hotel for one night on the 1st of September, when we arrived the room was ready for us straight away (this was about 2:00pm). When we entered the room, lovely as it was there was an odd smell of what I could only describe as Thai food in the room that never left the whole we were here. The room itself was nice, very old fashioned in its style but nice nonetheless. Breakfast in the morning was a small buffet of assorted fruits/cerals etc followed by a choice of cooked options. We went for the full English which was a pleasant surprise, the chef knows how to cook real scrambled eggs!. Overall if you enjoy staying in what could be described as a very large b&b style hotel then you'll love it, but if your looking for something a bit more modern then this won't be for you.

Thank You for taking the time to leave your comments on Trip Advisor. We are happy to note that you enjoyed your stay and, in particular, your breakfast. In terms of your bedroom I am unsure if you approached reception regarding the smell in your room, they would be more than happy to offer an alternative room if available or for the room to be re-serviced. We do hope that you choose to stay with us again and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Yours Sincerely

My wife and I stayed just 1 night 28th of August 2012.
We arrived late in the afternoon having visited Chatsworth house that day,our first impressions were lovely, how friendly and helpful the reception staff are.We went to our room and that was cosy, clean and had a homely feel whilst not being dingy.The bathroom was clean and fresh with lovely white fluffy towels and we loved the quirky toiletries.
We decided to book in for our evening meal as it was torrential rain outside and were tired after a very energetic day.
Serving in the bar was a very nice youg man "Kyle", he was friendly and confident about hs job and very efficient.
Whilst having a drink before dinner "Jo" took our order and came for us when it was time for us to go through, The food was delicious and the service was very good, we had a very nice and relaxing evening.
Breakfast was nice and hot the coffee was good and strong,the service again by Kyle and Jo was brilliant.
We wished we could have stayed longer, I would have no qualms about recommending this lovley hotel to anyone.
A Very Big Thankyou to all staff for making our very short stay brilliant.
Well Done

We stayed here for one night as part of a 'road trip' week and chose based on TripAdvisor reviews plus past experience of Best Western hotels.

The Lee Wood is based in a beautiful old building on the main road into Buxton. The welcome was incredibly warm and personal and made us feel at ease straight away - infact throughout our stay the staff on reception were exceptional, so friendly without being 'too much'. The hotel is packed full of character with a very grand central staircase. We had a beautiful suite on the first floor overlooking the park, meaning no traffic noise or streetlights. Lovely cosy rooms and a huge, very comfortable bed. Again the character of the building shone through with sash windows to two sides giving a lovely light, airy feel. Although very small, the bathroom was warm, cosy and well-lit.

Breakfast was in the conservatory and whilst it feels like that part of the building has seen better days, the range and quality of the food was absolutely first class and it was a fantastic start to the day!

All in all a good hotel in a good location and at a very good price - would stay again!

We were let down by another hotel and stayed here as a second choice and wish we had been booked in for longer. Superb service by reception staff who could not have been more helpfull.
A Fantastic room, very clean and comfortable ( we did have a minor breakdown with the toilet but that was sorted without any fuss ). We sat in the bar area for a while and all the staff stopped to talk, say hello etc, they were all friendly and wanted to know if they could do anything for us. We decided to eat out in the town so we could have a look around and the hotel stands on a hill, 10 mins from Town so no problem with location. We had a very comfortable nights sleep and got up to an excellent breakfast, once again the staff all very attentive. Only had one night and wish we had had more, will definately return,(sooner rather than later) well done Lee Wood Hotel you get 5 Stars from us!

Stayed here for one night over the weekend and were very pleasantly surprised. It's an old hotel but has plenty of character. The room was imaculately clean and decorated to a good standard. Staff at the hotel are very welcoming and efficient. The breakfast staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent too. This hotel is good value and we will definitely return.

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel as abase for Chatsworth Country Fair on a bed and Breakfast basis. The hotel was smart and clean and in character with the 18th century town. We decided to eat in the hotel on the 2nd night (Friday) and what a disappointment. The menu was likened to a script from Master Chief (very fancy fair), but the taste was mediocre and would have made Gregg wallace & John Torode cringe. Choice was limited and not very appealing. Vegatables and potatoes were extra.
The evening menu needs to be revised to a more family friendly choice (children were in residence). Good food, with a great taste can be simple and not fancifull.

Room Tip: A hotel close to the town centre but in a quiet location

Thank You for taking the time to leave your comments on Trip Advisor. I am sorry to see that you did not like our restaurant menu, this menu has been designed by our Head Chef using feedback from guests as to what they would like to see offered. I am unsure if you mentioned your issue to the staff in the restaurant during your meal as they would have been more than happy to offer an alternative or let you speak to the Chef directly. In terms of a “family friendly choice” we have a specific children’s menu which we offer to families so they can choose to dine from either menu.

We hope you choose to stay with us again in the future, if you require anything in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us on sales@leewoodhotel.co.uk

Yours Sincerely
