We came here to attend a charity ball. Credit to the hotel for holding this and for their donation. The history of the building is interesting, a training centre for railway staff with accommodation! The sunken main event area used to have railway tracks for the trainees to view from the raised walkway. Unfortunately, this does not work as a... More

Long day, (as most business people using hotels experience) and went into very awesome looking entrance with lovely sweeping staircase and through to reception. Smiley greeting and told where room was. OK, I was on the second floor, no lift and as staying away for a whole week had a lot of luggage to haul upstairs (no concierge), did this... More

Not too sure what to make of this place really? It has a bizarre feel about it, quite unlike a hotel. I don't know what the building used to be but after spending many years in the Forces I can tell you that it's very much like a 'Mess' accommodation block in its layout and feel. Rooms are clean and... More

Derby conference centre has all you need in a room, The room was quite really clean and warm. We went to a party the food was hot, very tasty the staff were very friendly. I think it was a nice building lovely staircase and was kept very warm when it has no double glazing

I stayed here with work for three nights. The hotel was very busy and pretty full. The reception staff wherevery friendly and helped me a lot. I didn't use the hotel bar so can't comment on the facilities. If I was to visit Derby again, I would visit here again. But book early to avoid disappointment.

I attended a Christmas party at the Derby Conference Centre last Saturday (20th Dec) and the only positive things I can say is that the company I was with and the DJ were extremely good. Unfortunately everything else was a complete let down. The food was terrible. The starter was supposed to be pate with sage and onion and toasted... More

We stayed here whilst on a road trip visiting family and friends around Derby. The building is Grade 2 listed and quite imposing. We loved the vestibule and ornate staircase. We stayed in the West Wing in a quieter part of the hotel. We had been informed there was to be a Christmas function in the hotel that evening therefore... More

I wasn't impressed. No water, or phone in the bedroom, i.e. No room service or reception information. Food and service were decent in the bar, in fact, service all over was great. No lift, I guess those in need stay on the ground floor. One time login WiFi! Strongly lacking in the hotel industry, must be great for conferences.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have stayed here this year and each time I have found the staff to be friendly & helpful. Rooms are small but comfy for 1 or 2 nights. The breakfast is good & the bistro food was better than previous visits. The venue was decorated for Christmas and looked really good.
