I booked the Chateau for my girlfriend's birthday. We'd been to Alton Towers and wanted to break up the trip back north so Buxton was ideal. I was happy with what I'd booked until I read the reviews on here!! Administration...tatty...poor...etc. ARGH! I prepped my girlfriend to expect the average, but we were over the moon when we arrived! The Chateau is very impressive and immediately sets a perfect scene.
You actually stay in a suite in the block just next to the chateau, but they make this clear on the website. If you want to stay in the actual Chateau don't book! Our suite was lovely. 3 bedrooms...of which we used one, a lovely lounge, modern kitchen, all finished to a high standard. We were only staying for a night so it was more than ample as a couple!! To be honest, it just worked out more cost effective to stay here than any of the other hotels in Buxton.
On closer inspection I can see the points about it needing a bit of work. I can only speak for the suite we stayed in of course. The door to the balcony was a little bit sticky and some of the paintwork needed a refresh. Apart from that it was good, and certainly not enough to ruin our trip.
Close enough to walk into Buxton in about 5 mins, although it is up a slight hill so maybe a taxi might be required for older visitors. Oh, one other thing...it had an ironing board, but no iron....if you really want to iron something on your trip! Amazingly I actually wanted to iron a shirt for once!
Anyway, overall great. Lovely setting, lovely suite, could do with some TLC but nothing that bad.
