Spa & Leisure

In a building that dates back to 1868, the spa at The Palace Hotel offers all the health facilities you need to unwind surrounded by the sweeping panoramas of the Lake District. The pool, fitness suite, Aquafit classes and circuit training in the health club are accompanied by a sauna, steam room, sun bed and of course the all-important beauty rooms.

Using Decléor products that boast thirty-five years of Aromatherapy research, the treatments include facials, massages, body wraps, waxing as well as Jessica manicures and pedicures. They also offer the ever more popular Garra Rufa Fish foot treatments – or fish pedicure!

Hotel & Accommodation

With 122 rooms, this historic, palatial building originally designed by the Duke of Devonshire’s architect, Henry Currey, has been sensitively updated whilst incorporating original features. Surrounded by five acres of private grounds adjacent to the spa town of Buxton, it benefits from the undulating vistas of the Peak District National Park.

As you might expect from an aristocratic abode, The Dovetale Restaurant is an elegant setting looking out through sash windows onto the gardens, while the cosier Lounge Bar offers lighter options until 6.30pm.
