Allowing for the changes being planned at this hotel, my stay was good overall. However, what lets it down is the loud music being played in reception when you book in, I couldn't hear what the receptionist was saying. It's far too loud in the bar area and why is it still playing loud at breakfast time. You don't need... More

To be honest we didn't really know what we were letting ourselves in for after reading the mixed reviews. However, when we arrived we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice! We managed to get the booking through a deal on bookings.com which was such a reasonable rate that we couldn't really complain. However, when we got there we... More

good swanky hotel, great decoration. great food and a good bar. the rooms are a little tired but it is nice to have a decent shower. The beds are good, the tv is big with a good choice of channels. A gym but didn't try it, but looked comprehensive.

My friend and I decided to go to Alton Towers for the weekend and we found Pentahotel online.... what a funky hotel, it was like walking into a nightclub! Very modern. My only personal downfall was the bedroom was quite basic. I prefer a carpet to wooden floors, but a nice TV and a walk in shower too! Breakfast was... More

Firstly I would like to say that my stay was good however it was not to my taste. First impressions when walking into the hotel - I was a little confused as I thought it was a swanky bar and I had gone in the wrong entrance. However once I got past this the entrance was very modern and clean... More

Have stayed twice in the last few months. Trendy check in/bar area with cool vibe. Excellent breakfast. Cleaners and all staff are doing a good job. Maybe could have a few finishing touches in the rooms like hairdryer/iron but other than that we cannot criticise this hotel for anything. Its situated on Pride Park within walking distance of train station... More

For the price, this is a great hotel. A nice central Derby location (which was ideal as I was travelling by train). At the time, the hotel was being changed from a Ramada to a Pentahotel, and the building works at 8.30am weren't really appreciated seeing as I would have liked a bit of a lie in. Bar prices are...

Check in, at the bar, is somewhat bizarre with traffic coming to and from bar, dining, sport facilities and hotel. Creates log jam of people and a points bits of "queue rage". Noisy reception area as well with music and television at high levels. Comfortable clean room although flooring and settee were a bit tired despite the recent refurbishment of... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel after a day out at Alton Towers. We stumbled across it on on google as it was close to the railway station. We weren't really expecting much as it was quite cheap and we didn't think their website sold the hotel very well. We booked it very late the day before and... More
