Absolutely superb!
Venue Service

By Liz and Jim, on 05 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Fantastic wedding venue! We recently held our wedding reception at the Old Hall Hotel, with ourselves and the majority of our guests staying both the Friday night and Saturday night. We also had an informal meal on the Friday night which nearly all of our 90 guests attended. Everything from beginning to end was absolutely faultless! All the staff were lovely - so helpful - and everything felt to run like clockwork and the attention to detail was impeccable. We had lots of guests comment about how nice the hotel is, how lovely the food was, the helpful staff and how wonderful everything looked. As well as a lovely, relaxed setting, we also benefited from having the main reception and a separate lounge dedicated to the wedding, which meant that those guests who didn’t want to dance in the evening had a quiet, comfy lounge to chat and catch up with old friends. Holly, our Wedding Co-ordinator, was also absolutely brilliant throughout the entire process - so helpful with nothing being too much trouble. Holly managed the whole process so efficiently and every aspect was perfect. If you want a lovely wedding, with a nice relaxed atmosphere and no stress – would absolutely recommend the Old Hall Hotel.

We got married just across the road from the Old Hall Hotel in the band stand and held our reception in the Old Hall we couldn't have been happier with our day. The staff at the Old Hall were really friendly and helpful, especially their wedding coordinator, Holly who was brilliant. The food was excellent with quick service, and really interesting menu to choose from. Really recommend the Old Hall Hotel as a great relaxed reception venue, we certainly had a lot of positive comments on the place from our guests!

Holly and all the staff at the Old Hall Hotel were so helpful - from first enquiry to the final email letting us know what our guests had left behind! We really couldn't have asked for better service. Every detail was covered and communication throughout the planning stages was excellent. The day itself went without a hitch and was the relaxed' joyous affair we hoped it would be. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. If you are looking for a Buxton venue for your wedding, we'd have no hesitation in recommending that you put the Old Hall Hotel at the top your list. Thank you Holly - and all the staff. We had a simply wonderful time.

We had our wedding at the Old Hall in April and what a day we had. We could not fault a thing. Emma our wedding coordinator looked after us from day one and she was faultless. The food for our wedding breakfast was 5* compliments to the chef ! Also the staff who helped run our day were so professional and polite we could not have asked for any more. We stayed in room 30 which was great. There was loads of room to get ready and it was a big bright room. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the day was and how hard the staff worked. If anyone is thinking of having a wedding in Buxton make sure you check out this hotel, you wont be disappointed.
