The Palace Hotel Spa Buxton, Derbyshire

Set amid five glorious acres of landscaped gardens in the heart of beautiful Buxton, the Palace Hotel Spa brings you a golden opportunity to get away from it all in style. Here in this delightful Derbyshire retreat, you can soak up the ambience of a dramatic Victorian idyll that has been a major landmark for a century and a half.

Buxton itself is a stunning town for those who like to explore, so be sure to check out the stores, the museums and the majestic Chatsworth House. It’s also the ideal spot from which to visit the incredible Peak District National Park, where escaping the hustle and bustle is oh so blissful. 

Days of decadence are always special at the Palace Hotel Spa, but with more than 120 gorgeous bedrooms why not make it an overnight stay instead? The spa has six sublime treatment rooms and a whole host of amenities, while the gym is perfect for those seeking a workout. There are two fabulous bars to relax you, and dining at the wonderful Dovedale Restaurant is always a pleasure.

Need for Refurbishment

S Woolley, Derbyshire

Hotel as expected of an old building.
Dinner & breakfast good.
Spa lovely with pleasant staff.
Swimming pool, showers & changing facilities very shabby, outdated & not worth visiting.
Such a shame as swimming pool plays an important inclusion on a spa experience.

Super relaxation

Maureen Reilly , Manchester

The hotel was good enough to book the spa treatments, for me and my friend for late in the afternoon which gave us time to enjoy lunch, and shop, walk, chat and spend time together, something we just don't get enough time to do. We then had our relaxing treatments which we agreed were excellent before having a drink in the bar and leaving for home. Thank you to the staff at Palace Hotel Buxton.

Mum and daughter hen/birthday

Cheryl Fisher, Nottinghamshire

Absolutely loved the treatment we both received. Myself (celebrating my birthday) and my daughter Aston (bride to be). We both went for the back, neck and shoulder massage and also a facial. The masseur in my case was an absolutely wonderful and made me feel so comfortable and special. Her name was Laura. We also had full use of the spa facilities, towel and robes. We were surprised that the light lunch was fantastic. A starter and main course of a variety of sandwiches, salad, crisps. We had such a wonderful day and we want to thank all the staff involved for making us both feel very special.

So relaxing body massage!

Margaret Smedley, Newark

A surprise birthday gift for my husband - just what he needed. He (I also) really enjoyed the full body massage which he was able to take advantage of during the afternoon of our arrival. This certainly relaxed him and set the tone for the rest of our stay. The staff at the hotel were so attentive - we were given a room upgrade due to the fact that it was my husband's birthday while we were there - another surprise which he really appreciated! Looking forward to a repeat experience next year!

This probably rates as one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Whilst the initial visual impact is of a grandly styled hotel, a truer image soon comes into play. Our room was quite small and the...... Read more
