How to find us


Reputed to be the oldest hotel in England, one time host to Mary Queen of Scots. Daniel Defo writing in 1727 and staying at the hotel, said, "This is indeed a very special place." Which of course it is, even to this day. The Old Hall's mellowed walls and many ancient rooms reflect the pedigree of its rich past, yet providing every comfort, cuisine and high technology expected from the best hotels of today.  Surrounded by hills, hills and even more hills at the heart of England's beautiful Peak District, in the elegant Spa town of Buxton, just across a leafy Georgian square from one of the most exquisite Opera Houses in this country. This is one of those hotels you often think about yet rarely find. And when you do, you only tell your best friends.  The Old Hall Hotel believes that your wedding day should be everything you have ever dreamt of.  This why our events team have created a number of packages that endeavour to cater for your every need.  If you have ideas of your own then we are more than happy to create a bespoke package for your requirements.  If you have a budget that you are working to then a package can also be created to accommodate this.
