OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The location is excellent, right in the heart of town and just a short walk from the railway station (with links to Stockport and Manchester). Directly opposite No 6 is the entrance to the Pavilion Gardens, a Victorian park with 23 acres of landscaped grounds winding prettily around the River Wye. Next to the Gardens is Buxton Opera House, an Edwardian gem, which hosts a wide range of cultural events throughout the year.

By car: around 1 hour from Sheffield, 1 hour 45 minutes from Birmingham and 4 hours from London. There is parking available on site for £3 per day.

By train: there is a direct line to Buxton Station from Manchester Piccadilly, the journey takes 1 hour. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the station. Book trains to Buxton.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

No 6 is part of The Square, an attractive block of Georgian townhouses built from the buff-coloured local sandstone. Entering through the tearoom you head up a cantilevered stone staircase to the grand first-floor sitting room and up again to the bedrooms, with period features every step of the way.

THE FACILITIES

Service is friendly and although you don't get extensive hotel-style facilities, guests are welcome to make use of the large, elegant lounge, where you can enjoy the view from the window, browse the piles of coffee-table books and maybe show off your musical abilities with a play on the grand piano.
