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.

We came here for the Paracon weekend as it was a birthday treat. Rooms are nice and clean, though quite small. Staff were friendly, my only gripe being we weren't given anything about breakfast, checkout or any other arrival information. The food was great, though pricey, but you can expect that. Was great that everything was in one place, we... More

People are complaining it was cheap, but thats cause the money you paid WAS cheap and you get free breakfast! Upon arrival the lovely man at the desk told us that there was a wedding reception (which we were already aware of) as nobody else bothered to move our room away from the noise.

It feels like an old peoples home. Everything is out of date, run down and of low quality. We got no information on anything during check in, just a key and on your way. Went down to the bar one night, it was open, there was no one behind it. Waited 10 minutes and walked off. Appalling service. Shower was... More
