“Enjoyable stay at the Lee Wood”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Lee wood immensely. We had a superior room which was spacious, clean and well equipped. The decor was lovely. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. They prepared another room for us to have our breakfast with our dog Finn, who enjoyed his holiday. The variety of food available at breakfast was generous. The only quibble we had was the choice on the a la Carte menu was very limiting for us as we are vegetarians. Other than the evening dining we will definitely visit again but perhaps will eat out.

Room Tip: We liked the spacious superior room. It gave us more room as we were with our border collie dog.

Thank You for taking the time to leave your comments on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased to see that you and Finn enjoyed your stay! If you choose to stay with us again and fancy going off menu please let reception or the waiting staff know. Our food is freshly prepared at the hotel so if you don't want the vegetarian option on the menu the chefs will usually be able to prepare something different for you. We hope to see you again very soon.

Kindest Regards

We really enjoyed our stay at the family run Lee Wood Hotel. It's within a short walking distance of the Opera House, set in small but lovely grounds. It's a shame it was raining for breakfast time as it would have been lovely to sit out on the terrace with a great view of the cricket pitch opposite. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and a good strong shower. The room did get very hot which made it uncomfortable getting to sleep, but I realised I hadn't opened the window fully, and it was a warm night. The breakfast was delicious- great quality bacon and sausage.
But it's the staff that make the hotel. They are friendly and professional, providing an efficient service with a smile. Our room service food was delivered within 15 mins and when we asked for an ice bucket, it came literally a minute later. Thanks to Lee Wood Hotel for a lovely stay.

Very helpful, pleasant staff. Room décor a little dated but very comfortable. Restaurant pricey. Excellent location, we were able to leave the car and walk to places of interest. Large range of places to eat all within walking distance of hotel. Would definitely stay at The Lee Wood again. Buxton very beautiful place to visit.

The check in was swift and we felt welcomed into the hotel. The rooms were in good condition and facilities such as the gym were good. The recommendations for the restaurants were amazing and for what price and it did not disappoint. Also having to look after a dog as it was distressed for an hour while we went to dinner so overall the experience was amazing and thank you for a great night.

We'd normally stay a in B&B, with it's individual character and charm, but opted for a Best Western Hotel as it suited our travel arrangements on this occasion. This place exuded a delightful charm, from the moment we pulled into the driveway. Staff were genuinely friendly and interested in our trip and stay with them. The room was modern and surprisingly spacious, given we had booked a standard room, but were travelling with our 7 month son. Furnishings were clean and tidy and didn't give the appearance of being worn and used, as some large Hotels do. Breakfast was delicious and staff were helpful. We would highly recommend this Hotel.

Just arrived home from my sisters wedding at The Lee Wood Hotel. I can honestly say it was the best wedding venue ever. Lovely staff, fabulous food, comfortable rooms. I cannot fault it in any way. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We are even thinking of going back for new years eve.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon and were made very welcome. A problem arose when we used the shower in our room - there was no way of controlling the pressure of water which nearly blew us out of the bath. Maintenance confirmed a new set of bath taps/shower would need to be fitted, and therefore we changed rooms with little or no fuss. Hotel staff were extremely courteous at all times and constantly checked all was well. We dined in two nights and the food was superb (although the wines were a little expensive we felt). All in all a most enjoyable experience and to be recommended.
