Booked in earlier today and what a miserable receptionist. Room fairly good size but bed small for a double and one side up against the wall. Noisy neighbours. Noisy pipes in the room. Gonna be a long night. If this is worthy of 4 stars please tell me how.

A good place to stay though certainly not a pouch high star hotel. If you are looking for an average clean comfortable place to stay then this is the place for you. Well situated plenty of parking and quiet. The bar has NO atmosphere and the food was uninspiring but well cooked, beware though the sauce and chicken on my... More

Stayed overnight following a conference held here. Good facilities and nice food. Bedroom was comfortable and clean. Issue with the shower as very small and a trickle of water came out. There were tea / coffee making facilities, iron, hairdryer, freeview television and a good wifi connection. Overall, good price for bed and breakfast. Good conference rooms and excellent lunch...

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.
