Thanks for dropping by. Below are the essentials that require your most earnest consideration prior to any booking. The industry parlance for this can be translated as *management of guest expectations*.

The Buckingham Hotel is primely sited opposite the Pavilion Gardens (8.9 Location guest rating).

Both the Opera House and town centre are a 5m walk / 60s sprint from the hotel. The train station is a 10m walk away. The town centre, which is very compact, has plenty of eat/drink/be merry options.

The hotel does not offer breakfast/meals and the bar is currently closed.

Our lift is non-operational (obsolete), so climbing stairs is necessary to access all bedrooms as we have no ground floor rooms. That said, access to 1st floor rooms is via 23 steps which are wide and shallow in height.

The hotel as a whole is best described as tired and lacking refurbishment and consequently should be avoided by those seeking a luxury break or a destination hotel experience. The Facilities guest rating of 6.1 is an accurate representation of this.

However, if you’re simply after the adequate provision of sleeping space, you’ll be fine. The ensuite rooms are perfectly functional (guest ratings: Cleanliness 6.7 & Comfort 6.8) plus there’s free on-site parking and decent wi-fi (8.6 Free WiFi rating - password: mrwhippy). Bicycle parking/storage is available within the building by prior arrangement (no charge).

The hotel is pet-friendly - a charge of £10 per nt is payable upon arrival. Pets (dog’s and talkative parrots mainly) must not be left unattended in the rooms.

Our prices reflect the standard of product offered in that they offer value for money (rated 7.2) through comfortably being the cheapest in town. We guarantee that you can readily find superior accommodation in Buxton, as long as you’re willing to pay... and as Ted DiBiase: The Million Dollar Man famously repeated: “Everyone's got to pay”.

Soooo... if that’s what you’re after, we’re a match made in a place that is equidistant from heaven and hell (sadly without the siren-esque tones of the late n legendary Ronald James Padovano (aka Dio).


You can currently only book a room if you’re arriving on a Monday and staying for a minimum of 3 nts. ADDITIONALLY, ROOMS ARE NOW AVIALABLE FOR THE AUG BANK HOLIDAY W/E – Friday arrival / min 3 nts stay.
