Best Western Buxton Lee Wood Hotel
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Buxton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Although the hotel flies the Best Western flag, it is family run and the vibe is personal rather than corporate. We did, however, get a good deal for 4 nights' b&b through the Best Western website. The hotel is a traditional building, so the public rooms have a spacious feel and are very relaxing. Our room and bathrom were also of good size. Service was very pleasant, although the bar isn't staffed all the time and on one occasion we had to go looking for someone to serve us - not something that bothered us, but it might irk some people.

The one dinner we had in the hotel was fine, but there is a cluster of restaurants at the bottom of the hill if you want to step out. It's not far to get to them, but it is a steepish climb to get back to the hotel if you're on foot.

All in all we really liked this place and will return if we can find an excuse.

A lovely hotel set in attractive surroundings. Staying just the one night. Room was spacious and well equiped. Evening meal very good and excellently served. After a good nights rest a full breakfast hit the spot. All the staff were extremely helpful and made the stay as relaxing as possible.

I booked this hotel for a surprise for my partners 40th birthday. When we arrived I had been given an upgraded room (number 12) spacious with a lounge area, compfy chairs and was at the front of the beautiful building overlooking the gardens.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially 'Jenny' who helped me keep my 'suprise'
I would most certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet location but within easy reach of the town centre.
A big thank you

We were booked into this hotel by our travelling companions, who know it well and use it often. The room rate including breakfast was excellent. The room (No 8) had a separate lounge with two very comfy chairs and a writing desk, standard lamp and large TV. The main bedroom was spacious and the bed 6'. Everything was spotless.

We arrived very late but the bar man, followed by the night porter could not have been more helpful. Breakfast in the morning was good - including poached haddock with poached egg.
All the staff were very friendly and made the stay more enjoyable. We only stayed the one night but will return. We had never been to Derbyshire before. Car parking was adequate and the rooms were quiet.

A very pleasant stay.
