We stayed at the Lee Wood Hotel for four days (12-16 Sept 2021) as part of a Car Club group booking.
Firstly, when we turned up en masse (I think 17 cars and 33 people with all our different questions) the lone receptionist was outstandingly calm and organised and made the check-in process very smooth indeed.
My husband and I were allocated a lovely, spotlessly clean, room (28) but even although the bed was king-size, we didn't have a good night's sleep due to the bed being smaller than we're used to. The following morning a different receptionist asked how we slept and I gave her an honest answer ... the next thing we knew (without us asking) she was hunting for an vacant room with a super-king bed for us, and later on when we came back from an outing all our bits and pieces had been moved to the new room (32) and we slept like logs for the next three nights.
Re our dining experience ... it was great. Dinner menus were put under our bedroom doors each day so we could make our food choices in advance, which meant there was no delay in serving our whole group at the same time. The waiting team worked like clockwork with a smile for everyone even although they must have been frustrated at times because often we couldn't hear what they were saying due to lots of background talking (the restaurant was full over and above our group) and the fact that the staff were wearing their Covid masks. Neither my husband or I could find fault with any of the food we chose, It was perfectly cooked, delicious, well presented and the portions were just the right size.
In the morning we had a self-service continental breakfast plus waiter service for our hot drinks and whatever combination of cooked breakfast we fancied. Again, as the evening before, service was very unobtrusive, prompt and the food was first rate.
Lastly, there was only one thing that we really didn't like at all, and that was having to check out ... we could have quite happily stayed a lot longer, and won't hesitate in recommending the Lee Wood Hotel to anyone who fancies a few nights in Buxton. less
