Beautiful building & setting
We used the Old Hall Hotel for our wedding breakfast and evening reception, our ceremony was held across the road in the winter gardens but you can have your ceremony at the hotel also, they are licensed (Oct 18). The staff were professional, friendly, helpful and proactive from start to finish and really enjoy hosting weddings, they are genuinely interested in your special day.Sent on 30/10/2018
The building is beautiful and was perfect for our 75 day guests and 100 evening guests. The hotel is also in a prime location in Buxton which makes for great photo opportunities wherever you are, its surrounded by the pavilion gardens, the slopes, the crescent building and the opera house, its gorgeous.
If you're looking for a well run and beautiful event, then this is an excellent choice.

Excellent Wedding Venue
They were very hands on and professional in every aspect of the arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble for holly, who is their wedding co-ordinator. She kept us updated and didn't let anything slip, even if we forgot to do something, she would gently remind us.
On the day, we were left to get ready in the secure knowledge that everything downstairs was being dealt with and our guests were being looked after. After the ceremony, they turned the room around whilst we had our photos taken, as we didn't want to go into the big dining room for the meal.
The food was hot and delicious with very attentive serving staff. We had some guests with food allergies, which they catered for so everyone had a beautiful meal and no one was left out. They then cleared the room and we had a band come in to play fir our reception.
The band were Rythym Works from Stoke on Trent and they were fantastic and the acoustics were brilliant. Holly has their details if anyone wants a really great band. The whole day was superb from start to finish and we then spent the night in one if their luxurious rooms and our family met up for a wonderful choice of breakfast in the dining room, the following morning.Sent on 28/11/2018

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.Sent on 05/09/2018
