I was very impressed by the reception team who managed to offer me a double room at the advertised discount for party goers attending at the conference centre. However, I really did not like that I had to contact them via email to arrange this as every time I phoned, I was sent to voicemail. I find voicemail impersonal and... More

Came here on 8 Dec for a works party and stopped overnight. Oh dear. From the front this looked rather nice. Driving round to the back to park was full of rubbish, abandoned carpet and old chairs. The reception area was ok, the staircase very nice. The rooms are adequate, Ive been in worse; the bathrooms were nice for the... More

My husband and I found ourselves in need of a room to stay when planning a trip from Gateshead to Derby and I found the Derby Conference Centre close to where we needed to be for the Sunday conference we were to attend. I booked on line with no fuss and arrived at about 7.30pm on Saturday 29th September. The... More

Friendly helpful staff allowed us to store our tandem in the restaurant over night and leave our car in the ample parking for a few days after our stay. Breakfast was buffet style and could have been better.

This has to be one of the best places to stay in Derby, the staff are very friendly, the food unbelieveable, and the service is better than alot of 4 star hotels I know. After reading some of the other reviews I can only think that they must have learnt from them and moved on because there is nothing here... More

After a 6 nights stay I was glad to depart. Personally I would never stay again. Some of the staff are excellent, other staff give the impression, don't bother me I'm busy. Problems existed from the very start when I attempted to book via the website, obtain food (certain staff expect guests to be physic) and complaints are treated with... More

A few lovely art deco features - however a particularly soulless hotel. The rooms are fine and spacious. The breakfast was good as was the service. You do a feel a little as if you are in a factory turned into a hotel. As the name suggests it is a conference facility and that aspect is pretty good but tends... More

I needed somewhere quite cheap to stay, and fast as the police had to remove me from my home because of my abusive boyfriend. This was the only option at the time, the bedroom was fine, a bit like university halls but the bed was extremely comfortable! The bed was lovely, and the room was rather spacious and bright with...
