Apartments just the same as we remember them-clean, spacous and just off A6. Receptionist very helpful when we arrived. If I was to be picky-some champagnes flutes would be nice and some same size (adult size) cutlery-apart from that all good! Actually, a larger pan would have helped-cooking fr four adults with three small pans was difficult.

We stayed here last weekend in the penthouse suite, and what a great evening we had staying the birchover, the apartment was huggee! With a bathroom hidden among the wardobe, it was excellent. Beautifully decorated and such good value for money. There was enough information provided on cards on the coffee table and the self catering was great they had... More

We spent 1 night at the apartment as a family of 4 and it is a great facility with excellent service. Having 2 bedrooms within one apartment works so much better than all 4 of us crammed into a hotel room and it was competitively priced too. They have all the self catering facilities that you'd need plus they supplied... More

Dear Bazza0070 We are really delighted that you and your family had such a great stay at Birchover. As ever, we're always just that little bit more excited and happy to know that children have had fun in the apartments, hiding in the Narnia bathroom and (as you've said) finding the sauna to be a real treat. I'm very happy... More

We had a luxurious night at the Birchover apartments on our stay over in Derby. The flats are wonderfully furnished, clean and designed to make the guest feel pampered. The staff were welcoming, friendly, and offered loads of help and information. The flat was equipped with a really well arranged kitchen, a very classy lounge, and a marble walled bathroom... More

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

This was our first trip with our 17 month old son and things could have gone more smoothly.

Dear SarahPerera What a real delight to read your review!

Part of that is ensuring that we provide space-saving items for you like cots, high chairs, etc and... More
