Every thing very quaint service very good all round
Cooked Breakfast could have been hotter. But was still very good.
I appreciate this hotel is old, but bedroom desperately needs updating. Bathroom had been revamped but room was dreary and depressing! and was ok but room was dreary and depressing. Wardrobe did not close properly and door kept opening.
Great location overlooking park, opera house and crescent. Staff are all pleasant and willing.
The hotel shows evidence of lack of investment over long period and a 'make do' mentality. It has enormous unrealised potential and with better management could be a 4* hotel with substantial appeal.
Hotel full of history, being where Queen Mary was held prisoner. Staff very friendly and helpful. Locals praised events held here.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Staff very friendly.
Badly in need of renovation, room very small. Due to the fact that the windows did not close properly the room was very noisy. "Old" is certainly a good word to describe this hotel.
Location, size of room, parking, comfortable bed, quiet location.
Charming, old building (dating back to 1573), centrally located, with beautiful views from the large bedroom windows and within easy access to the Pavilion Gardens, the Opera House and much, much more. Friendly staff, comfortable spacious bedroom, delicious breakfasts...
This is not so much a 'not like', but a suggestion for the next staff training:There is so much to see and do in Buxton that we wished the charming staff members were more proactive at suggesting walks/must dos in and around the Hotel, and more knowledgeable about the history of the hotel itself! For example, it was the wonderful driver/guide Michael, on the Victorian 'Tram' ride that told us of Queen Mary Queen of Scotts inscriptions on the original windows of the Old Hall Hotel with her diamonds, whilst in 'custody'. And we read of the 'famous' Mary's Cake only after we'd been to afternoon tea at an alternative establishment, but would have stayed at the Old Hall if we'd been told about it by the staff!
An extremely comfortable hotel with very friendly and efficient staff.
Anyone expecting modern facilities may be disappointed
Very good service and quality
It was a very historic hotel and the staff were very nice. We didn't eat there in the evening so cannot comment on evening meal. Breakfast was excellent and good choice.
I stayed at the Old Hall Hotel with my new husband and we enjoyed it very very much. We strolled opposite to the Pavilion Park, and the Opera House, and then just a short stroll away was the shopping centre and some really nice, traditional bars. The younger staff are a real asset to this hotel, as was the freshly cooked breakfast - that was delicious!!
There was nothing not to like about our stay.
Staff most helpful, food choice excellent and of good quality.The ensuite facilities were extremely good
A few of my friends in adjoining rooms were disappointed with the lack of heating but I was very comfortable. The key fobs were very heavy and large!
Central Location, very close to Opera House.
Room 16, our allocated room had terribly sloping floors, so much that our feet were higher than our heads while lying on the bed. Cooked breakfast was served, warm, at best. Bar was very messy and the Draught Guinness was undrinkable.
Situated within minutes of most Buxton landmarks, this cosy hotel made our stay perfect.
Maybe getting close to needing a lick of paint but nothing to put one off booking a stay.
Great location and the added bonus of a free parking permit.
The quality of breakfast was poor in terms of the size of the hotel. I ordered scrambled eggs which I think were made with one egg and the Salmon was tasteless.
All round enjoyable stay. Ideal location
nice,friendly and centrally located hotel
friendliness central location good breakfasts
rooms very expensive for what they are, quite basic even though classed as 'superior' -need TLC quite badly

Room looked great and gave a warm feel
Phone reception was extremely bad.
Great location. Interesting old world charm. Room was a good size.Tea/coffee provided. Parking cost good value.
We found the staff friendly and helpful. The food was excellent with good choice and if you didn't feel like a formal meal there was a wide menu in the Wine Bar. Although we did not take our dog, we liked the fact that dogs were welcome in the hotel. We will take her next time.
We could find nothing not to like.
Very pleasent hotel right in the centre of Buxton and next to the opera house. Very friendly staff serving top quality breakfast. Sadly we only stayed one night but would use the hotel again at our next visit.
It seems that you can't reserve a parking space - we got one just outside but we may have been lucky.

Creaking floors of all rooms meant disturbed sleep.
The staff were friendly and the room was lovely, there was even a teddy on the bed for my little girl
