A stay at the Buxton Crescent is the perfect opportunity to sleep in a magnificent heritage building, with all the service and amenities of a 5-star hotel. The Hotel offers a unique, luxury spa experience, combining traditional beauty therapies with wellness and holistic treatments. The hotel is also an ideal base from which to explore the natural world of the Peak District National Park.
Buxton Crescent is the reincarnation of two once-upon-a-time, grand and gracious hotels, well-known throughout Georgian England as the premier resting place for stylish spa seekers who came from all over the country to bathe in the thermal waters of Buxton.
Buxton became a spa destination in Roman times, when a settlement was built around a clear, warm-water spring that still sends up more than one million litres a day from the original source underneath the Buxton Crescent.
The Crescent, designed by John Carr of York, houses the hotel and spa and is one of the most architecturally significant buildings in England. This makes staying in this 18th century building, together with chandeliers, painted ceilings, stained glass windows and fluted columns, feel more luxurious.
As well as 81 luxury rooms in an historic setting, Buxton Crescent offers traditional hydrotherapy, luxury spa treatments, lifestyle programmes and healthy cuisine, all the five-star amenities that discerning health travellers look for.
Its position in the heart of Buxton means that visitors can also explore a year-round programme of activities within the town and the Peak District.
