Very enjoyable one night break in Buxton at this hotel. Nice room, friendly staff and great breakfast. Only slight downside was the Brakes delivery van unloading at 7.00am directly below our room as we would have liked to have slept a bit later following a days walking in the Peak District! Great stay though and will definitely return.

What saved us from this rather mediocre hotel (horrid damp smell in the bathroom & a sink which took forever to drain-comfy bed but an old fashioned & old feel-kind of tired feel) was Charlie. Charlie, in charge of the bar that night, was superb...chatty but not overly so, interested & interesting-he made the Lee Wood a pleasurable overnight stop.

A lovely hotel, with a well maintained original feel. The room service, appliances and general condition was excellent, would highly recommend if visiting the Peak District or Buxton. I didn't use the gym or spa, but both look very good and if I brought some gym kit, would definitely have used it!

This was our second visit and very enjoyable. We had a suite which was lovely and contained a very large bedroom and a separate sitting room. The only bugbear was the shower curtain - very old fashioned and it had a habit of sticking to me whilst showering. The breakfasts were good especially the choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and...

We stayed here for one night and although the hotel is a little old fashioned the cleanliness & food were first class. The dining room is a huge conservatory which is lovely when lit up at night, our evening meal & breakfast were exceptional and the staff were really pleasant and helpful ( especially the polish lady who was lovely)...

Stayed at this hotel on business recently. Buxton is a town of largely poor hotels, but the Lee Wood is an exception. Friendly, professional staff, nice breakfast, good sleep, nice gardens/outdoor areas, good location. My room in the annexe was a very pleasant change from anodyne chain hotel rooms - large, stately and comfortable, it was, I guess, a bit...

Reception staff were outstanding. They made me feel extremely welcome and they were genuinely friendly. The hotel was lovely and traditional. I congratulated one of the cleaners for the quality of cleanliness. I would go back in a heartbeat!! Ps I hope the Paris trip went well?! Thank you! Neil

Stayed here for 1 night midweek when we decided on a spur of the moment trip to the Peak Distrct during a few days off work. We checked in around 5pm and were given a free room upgrade - the room we were given was really spacious with a large bed and a sitting area as well as a good...

Typical Best Western hotel with all the amenities you need. Bathroom looked to be recently refurbished and well equipped. Good sized room and very quiet location. Plenty of parking but handy for walking into town. Staff very welcoming and excellent breakfast.
