I booked an apartment for a weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. The fact that she was delighted with my choice and thoroughly enjoyed our stay says it all. It was so good I was even in her good books (at least for a while!). The apartment was large, beautifully furnished, clean and well equipped. Best of all were the... More

I've just returned from two nights here with my husband and 2 year old daughter. I was so happy with the accommodation and couldn't fault a thing. I was phoned a couple of days before arrival with instructions and what to do upon arrival and was also asked if I needed help or info on the local area. When I... More

Lots of positives - lovely apartment, great location, free/plentiful parking, good wifi & helpful staff - great restaurant within walking distance too (Darleys). The one & only negative would be road noise from the very nearby A38, especially from early morning - might be better on weekends - but whilst I have taken 1 star away for that it wouldn't... More

Stayed here for two nights with friends over last weekend. This was a return visit for both couples. Once again we had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. The apartments are a perfect place for two couples who live on different sides of the country to meet and spend time together. Thanks once again to the friendly and efficient staff.... More

Stayed here in early February, now our third visit. Great place to stay and were not disappointed with the service and the kind and helpful staff. Had a wonderful surprise and were upgraded to the 'bridal suite' on arrival. Warm and cosy in the apartment while it was cold, snowy and frosty outside. A good meal from Jack Rabbits was... More

This was our first trip with our 17 month old son and things could have gone more smoothly. The facilities in our penthouse apartment were exactly what we needed and the highchair, travel cot and bath mat for our son were very much appreciated! So too was the owners patience while answering my questions and waiting to hear if we... More

Dear SarahPerera What a real delight to read your review! As parents ourselves (and similarly, we don't undertake long trips without a fair amount of trepidation and planning!), we really work hard to ensure that anyone travelling with children are looked after. Part of that is ensuring that we provide space-saving items for you like cots, high chairs, etc and... More

We stopped in a penthouse apartment for one night for my dearly beloved's 40th birthday and we couldn't fault this place one bit! The apartment was very clean and spacious and this made a lovely change to just booking a hotel. A lot of people have commented about noise of the traffic on the busy road behind the apartments but... More

Dear chewylouey It's great to hear that your fiance had a brilliant 40th birthday here at Birchover. We are really pleased that you both had such a good time. The "very clean" apartment was thanks to our housekeepers Maria and Sharon B, who cleaned your apartment that day. We'd love to welcome you back sometime and I'll be in touch... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Birchover Apartments near Darley Abbey in Derby. We were given very good instructions prior to our arrival and found the accommodation to be very good. I did feel that having an open plan kitchen resulted in the smell of cooking breakfast floating around the place all day. But the size of the... More

Dear Martin C Thank you very much for your detailed review. I'm really pleased that we felt that you dealt with the issue you had on arrival (we'll be honest on here about it...we put your breakfast pack into the wrong apartment, which was not occupied, so thankfully it was a quick and easy resolution). We're delighted that you felt... More

This was bought for us as a gift, upon arrival the grandness of the apartments was staggering. Beautiful. The apartment itself was clean and tidy. Bathroom very luxurious. The only negative thing was that we were put in an apartment in which the bedroom backed on to the busy major motorway, so the noise was immense. Trying to get a... More
