Buckingham Hotel Overview
Pets are welcome at the Buckingham Hotel, generally by prior arrangement so we can allocate suitable rooms The healing properties of Buxton’s spa water first drew visitors to the town in Roman times.
Over the centuries people have continued to visit though happily today their reasons are more for pleasure than medicinel.
Originally built as two gentleman’s residences, No 1 Burlington Road was known as ‘Rockhaven’ (1875) and No 2 as ‘Buckingham’ (1876).
Around the turn of the century, Rockhaven was acquired by Mr & Mrs George Ramsay-Mrs Ramsay running it as a lodging house. Her husband, George S Ramsay was a well known artist in oils, specialising in local scenes.
Records show that in 1906 Mr and Mrs Ramsay moved to Aylestone in Leicestershire where he continued to paint. Shortly after this the two houses were combined to make the hotel as it stands today.
A new millenium sees The Buckingham continuing it’s tradition of offering hospitality and as it enters it’s third century as an important town landmark the hotel plays host to many local clubs and associations as well as enjoying much local patronage via Ramsay’s Carvery and a la Carte Restaurant and Real Ale Bar.
Pet Travel Tips:
- Before leaving, check to make sure the hotel accepts pets. And check either our on-line advertisements or directly with the hotel, to find out any restrictions, fees, etc.
- Also find Emergency Veterinary Clinics in the area to which you're headed.
- If the pet travels with you, it will retain a sense of identity. However, pets can become frightened and bolt away from you out of open doors and windows. Keep your pet on a leash when outside your car or hotel.
- Occasionally travelling can upset your pet's stomach. Take along ice cubes, which are easier on your pet than large amounts of water. It is recommended that you keep feeding to a minimum during travel. More pet travel advice...
