We stayed here during a two day visit to Alton Towers because we didn't want to stay at the park. We booked an executive room which was spacious but had extras such as robes etc missing. I was later informed that this was my error as I didn't call reception to let them know there were 2 people staying in... More

Had a twin room booked for myself and my nephew. Room was clean and modern with bath tub which was very... More

We were looking for a hotel for one night for a stop over in Derby on our way up North and I found the Holiday Inn Derby Riverlights as one of the choices that appeared to provide what we were looking for: central location and nice rooms, if possible at a reasonable price. When first getting there, I was a... More

I come to Derby for business regularly. My last stay at Hol Inn was pleasant enough with no issues. However, this week after check-in I was directed to a room that was already occupied, I opened the door and there were clothings and a mobile phone scattered on the bed. A big let down in the security aspect - checking... More

I fail to find any negative points to this hotel, I received a free upgrade on arrival being a IHG Rewards Club member to an executive room which is probably one of the best rooms I have stayed in. The rooms are clean and spacious, Although I had a exec room this time round, I have stayed in a normal... More

Hotel is in an excellent central position with close proximity to shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel is very modern and we were pleasantly surprised with room quality.
