We recently re-visited the Old Hall for a one-night stay to tie in with an evening at the Opera House. This is very interesting, historic hotel, perfectly located between the Opera House, the park and the town centre.
There is choice for dining - either the more formal restaurant or the modern bistro-type wine bar. The food is excellent whichever room you choose - contemporary-styled, locally-sourced food. I would recommend the brie, cranberry and apple tart to start, and either the lamb or pork main course. If you like proper, "real" ale, (and many hotels don't give you the option), try the local Buxton Bitter. My wife was impressed with the wine too.
Plenty of lounge space too, plus a small, quaint Theatre Bar.
You can get to the bedrooms by stair or by lift - try the lift; it's almost an antique!
Our bedroom (45) was very spacious, well-fitted out and overlooked the park and the Buxton water tap. (Free, constant flowing Buxton water - don't forget to take some empty bottles). The only criticism I have about any aspect of the hotel, is the bathroom. No problem with cleanliness or the working of the shower, but peach/apricot suite? And a stand-in bath shower with one of those horrible rubber mats. (I know they're a safety precaution, but they're still horrible!). No doubt costs are an issue here, and for all I know there may be modernisation plans in place.
And frankly, all else outweighs this relatively minor issue.
Worth mentioning the breakfast - superb. Proper bacon and sausage - not the limp, frazzled rashers, or "Walls" type bangers prevalent in some places. And when it's freezing and snowing outside (as it was when we left), it's just what you need,
Finally, worth mentioning the staff - without exception, they were extremely friendly, courteous and professional.
Heartily recommend a stay here.

We had our wedding here on the 12/11/11 and it was the best day ever!! I wouldn't change a thing. From the initial planning stages, the friendliness and organisation of our planner Vicky was second to none. Everything went very smoothly, the room looked beautiful for the ceremony and wedding breakfast which was held in the dining room. All candle lit and cozy with lovely food. There were a few slip ups like me giving them the wrong number of guests for the breakfast and it only coming to light on the day of the wedding, but this was not a problem and was handled professionally and without a fuss. The evening do was held in the orcestra pit with a live band. What a wonderful venue!! Loads of atmosphere and pleasant warm staff, even when they couldn't get rid of people at night. The food was lovely at both the breakfast and in the evening. Everyone commented on how lovely our day was, so THANK YOU to all at the Old Hall Hotel, you made our day very special, I would definitely recommend others to use it for any special occasion.

Stayed for a week end (18-19/11/11) on a "two nights for the price of one" offer. Whole experience was very good. This is a really old establishment dating back to 1573 with a wonderful patina.

Huge comfortable beds, spotlessly clean rooms and a fantastic full english breakfast.

Only disappointment was the late 'after theatre' evening meal (warmed up lasagne) which had been overdone in the microwave. Should have complained but it was 10.30pm and we were too tired to wait around.

Location is perfect for exploring area and the theatre which is just 1 minute walk away.

Staff are really nice, friendly and efficient.

Would definately go again or recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park known as The Steps.
