Stayed here for one night a couple of months ago. Only a short walk from the railway station and easy to find. My room on the 1st floor was a good size with a sink and TV. Bed was a bit hard and pillow was flimsy. The free wifi did not work and the toilet/shower facilities were unsuitable - there... More

I have stayed here quite a lot in the last month through working in the area. It has good parking and the rooms have tv and a decent bed. There is a shared kitchen downstairs and toilet facilities on both floors. It is good affordable accommodation. The manager is always helpful.

I stayed here on business and will use again. The room was clean and it contained storage space, a sink and a Tv. The manager is very helpful and informative. The showers are hot and roomy. There is ample parking space.

We had our yearly conference here on Monday, as I has a long way to travel I was given the option to stay on the Sunday which I did. The rooms are spacious and modern the building is fantastic and has a real wow factor when you arrive. On the downside £4.40 a pint and £15 for burger and chips... More

I stay here a lot whilst working in Derby, and it suits me great. Very economical on the wallet, and has all the facilities I need whilst here:- kettle, iron, shower, fridge, microwave, freeview TV, free WiFi and car park. Warmer rooms would be nice, but other than that I don't really have any issues for the price.

Basic, clean, did what it said on the tin, Owner could do with brushing up on his English but that's about it really! Showers were clean, toilets were clean, rooms were clean, comfortable beds, not sure if it is a guesthouse though, I'd go for hostel... Tv with free view, free wifi and free parking, can't complain!
