We attended this hotel for a weekend of Tango. It cannot be described as a Four or Five star nevertheless, the friendliness of the staff. The good hearty well cooked food, which is never stinted. The several function areas, large swimming pool, indoor bowling green, several dance halls of different sizes. And, it's proximity to the town (ten minutes walk),... More

My wife and I stayed at the Derwent Hotel from December 23rd 2014, through until January 2nd 2015. This Hotel, although only 2 star rated, provides excellent facilities across the whole age range. The staff were excellent, food plentiful and very well presented and served. Nothing was to much trouble, well done to all the staff. Wonderful Spa and swimming... More

My partner and I have just had a great few days at this hotel. We booked a Tinsel & Turkey break including a Round robin bowling competition. This was teams of 4 but as we were on our own we were teamed up with another unknown couple who turned out to be absolutely lovely. They were also sitting at our... More

my partner and I have just stayed in the Derwent for the first time,we travelled with a group on a turkey and tinsel tour. As a couple who have travelled the world and stayed in 5 star hotels we were a little hesitant about staying in a two star hotel. But what a surprise we both got from the start... More

Stayed here for turkey and tinsel . Not up to standard for what we paid. Our room had not been cleaned, food not all that good . We paid same price as Warners Turkey and Tinsel and so expected more than what we got . Disappointing stay here.

The Hotel has been renovated since our last trip 12 months ago and it certainly looks fresher and the rooms smarter. Just needs the stairs and hallways re-carpeting and it will be perfect. Excellent 3 night break, with brilliant food and entertainment. The staff are so efficient and friendly, it is a p,ensure to be served by them. The Aztec... More

Stayed at this hotel for a turkey and tinsel weekend, room was very clean but a bit cramped, all the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food and entertainment were brilliant and the only reason I can see why this is only a 2 star is because some areas are looking a bit tired. I would definitely stay... More
