Reviewed 20 October 2013

We stayed for just one Friday night at The Queens Head Hotel in Buxton, the reason for booking the Queens was that we found that other places in Buxton wanted you to stay 2 nights Friday and Saturday, the Queens let you have the one night. Car park round the back. We had room 4 which was excellent, really nice clean well equipped. Really good place to stay the landlord helped us find our way around and recommended places to eat, and booked one for us, (The Number 13). Huge breakfast, would really stay there again, I would also ask for room 4.

Room Tip: There are 6 rooms, 2 rooms are not attached to the Hotel its self, but just across the car park, a f...

A 10 minute walk to theatre. In a good busy location. It is a real town style pub that prides its self on good beers. I was served the best Gin and Tonic that I have had in a long time. Staff were very friendly and helpful The accommodation comprises of 6 rooms at the back of the pub. Rooms are very basic but clean and good beds. It would not cost much to add some decent curtains and bed throws and maybe some wall paper on one wall. bed heads would be better fastened to the wall rather than wobbling about. Bathroom was a good standard and looked fresh and clean. Breakfast was adequate but served in a dismal room.

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. Our Gin and Tonics are somewhat infamous! Since your visit we have carried out a schedule of modernisation and have also built 6 extra rooms. Hopefully you will return in the future to experience these.

We stopped at the Queen's Head on a whim – we checked them out on tripadvisor when we were just five minutes away. Nothing was too much for them and our room was tidy, clean and comfy. Ian, the manager, couldn't do enough to make sure we were well looked after. Thoroughly recommended.

Good quality accommodation at an excellent price, with the bonus of free off-road parking. The bedrooms have all got complimentary Sky tv, including sports, which is great value. Good, and massive, breakfasts, and the pub is a lively and fun place for a drink too!

We spent one Saturday night at The Queen's Head and like other reviewers have said it really is the night to be avoided if possible. The pub doesn't have a "beer garden" so the car park behind the pub becomes a loud smoking area / beer garden (especially on a hot sunny day like the night we stayed). The talking carried on til the early morning. There is also a noisy fan outside of the family room, which we initially found annoying but to be honest it was a good constant noise that drowned out the noise of the people talking... Until it switched off!

On the positive side; the room was clean except for cobwebs around the ceiling, but the bathroom, floors and bedding were clean which is the most important thing. The room was also a really nice cool temperature on a really hot day - though can't report what it would be like in the cooler months of the year. The staff were very friendly from arrival to departure.

The breakfast was good and plentiful consisting of; cereal, toast, tea/coffee, fruit juice, fried; sausages, bacon, mushrooms, eggs, tomato, bread.

Finally, don't assume you will be able to park in the car park every night of your stay. The car park is tiny and whilst we were lucky enough to find a space on arrival and when we came back on the evening, each time we took the last available "space". Cars were double parked later in the evening and can imagine some guests may have to pay to park in a local car park.

Room Tip: Avoid Saturday night if possible.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. It is a general rule to lock the back door at 11pm at night so as not to disturb guests. Since your visit we have carried our a schedule of modernisation and have even built 6 new rooms that have been decorated to a very high standard. I hope you will return in the future to experience this. I'm very pleased that you found the staff to be friendly and the breakfast to be plentiful.
