I cannot recommend the hotel enough.

I was fortunate enough to discover Ensana Buxton Crescent for a European press event for my automotive client who was hosting a driving experience in the area. The hotel worked perfectly given its proximity to Manchester, Birmingham and East Midlands Airport which meant direct flights for most attendees plus the regional train network for those based in the UK. 

Buxton Crescent offer very comfortable rooms with all the necessary amenities, a stylish bar and restaurant and a wonderful spa which was appreciated by all of our guests. Our media also enjoyed the hotel's enviable location in the centre of Buxton with its excellent restaurants, shops, beautiful buildings and park right on the door step. Valet parking was available and ensured our fleet of staff cars were securely parked overnight in their offsite parking facility.

There was a hosted dinner each evening in the restaurant which focused on regional delicacies including lamb and local cheese. Service was executed brilliantly and the dinners were really well received. Breakfast offered great choice and set our guests up for a busy day ahead.

All of the hotel staff are to be recognised for their friendliness and kindness - they really made our group feel welcome at all times and nothing was too much trouble. In particular, thanks go to the sales team and my main contact, Alannah, who responded promptly to all pre-event communications, understood our clients' objectives and requests and then cascaded this perfectly to all of the relevant heads of department to ensure continuity.

I cannot recommend the hotel enough and would like to thank the entire team at Ensana Buxton Crescent for their part, no matter how big or small, in delivering a hugely successful event.
