We stayed over on a Sunday night and got a good deal via booking.com. The hotel is smack bang in the middle of an industrial park but a 5 minute walk from the train station. Arrived Sunday afternoon and the place was deserted, once you are through the main doors it feels like you have just been transported into a... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night and to say it exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. Perfect location for both Pride Park, train station and Derby City centre. This is a relaxed chill out hotel with very high standards of cleanliness with modern feel throughout. The rooms are perfect with added extras a nice big flat screen TV... More

Stayed here for two nights earlier this year. The first night was a nightmare. The Window wasn't properly sealed, and there was a wind all night, and I had to endure a 'whistling' sound from the window all night long. I asked a different room, unfortunately, the hotel was full. To their credit, the staff moved me to a new... More

We stayed here at the weekend as a couple for 2 nights and got the very reasonable web rate of £88 for two nights including breakfast. The check in was straight forward and I was in awe of the décor as soon as I walked in! There are no MDF/Laminate combos in here, its cool and fashionable and very laid... More

Its a great Hotel in the middle of Pride Park in Derby, central to all the surrounding area and of course all the pride park shopping areas. The food was very good and the service second to none, Clean personal and very friendly. Its close to the Station and the town centre, but none of the noise.

The photos on the website do not do this hotel justice, it's really groovy in a mismatched kind of way, expect the unexpected! The reception doubles up as the bar, complete with glitter balls, the pool table is not the standard boring green baize, there are candles all over the place, comfy chairs, giant televisions and atmosphere a plenty!

Never heard of pentahotels before but after reading the previous reviews I decided to take a risk and book. I was not disappointed, Staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us. Great value for money, breakfast was lovely and even included prosecco and smoked salmon. Will definitely book a pentahotel again.

The Penta Derby is a great hotel. Your first impression is - what did I do - booking a hotel in the middle of an industrial estate. We stayed a Friday night. So it was very deserted. However that instantly changed when we entered. We were welcomed. Our booking checked efficiently. Staff were great throughout. At the weekend, its quiet... More

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
