- "Lord Harry's off at the Summit! We shall have to go and put things right!"
- ―The Manager, Mountain Engines
The Station is a simple one with two terminal roads and a long platform provided for each. The Hotel stands behind the buffer stops. It is a stoutly built one-storey structure standing just below, and therefore to some extent sheltered by, the Peak. Though dignified by the name of hotel it is, in reality, little more than a cafeteria restaurant for the provision of souvenirs, hot drinks and snacks. There are normally no resident staff, and such over-night accommodationas is provided, is only there for use in dire emergency. Most people, after an interval for refreshment, climb to the terraced roof to enjoy the view, but a better all-round prospect is only to be had from the platform built on the Peak, and reached by a somewhat scramblesome path from the station.
- Its Snowdon Mountain Railway equivalent is Summit of the same name.
