Although the holiday Inn riverlights seems to be designed more for business purposes, I found the room to be modern, attractive and very well presented. I stayed in a smoking room. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious although I recall having to pay an additional £10pppn at the time of booking. The room price was good value for money although... More

I've stayed here for 4 weeks not mainly due to my work. I'd recommend this hotel, as it is close to the town center and the Intu mall in Derby. There's plenty of stuff to do around the hotel. The staff are very friendly and are ever-ready to go out of their way to fulfill your requests and make your... More

I stay at this hotel many times during the year on business, but this particular trip was for leisure purposes as a base for walking in the Peak District. The staff are very helpful and when one of the rooms in our party didn't have enough beds, we were given an extra room free of charge. Rooms were a decent... More

I'm based in derby during the week for work Mon-Fri and stay at the Holiday Inn Riverlights. It's the best hotel around in terms of location, service and cleanliness. Staff are great and the intu shopping centre is across the road. I'd recommend it!

I have been based in Derby Monday until Thursday for the last five weeks. This whole time I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Riverside. The team there has made my stay very enjoyable, they look after everything - future room bookings, information around town, events, busy times etc. The hotel itself is new, modern and clean. The food in... More

I am part of a large team staying in Derby on business - we're 4 weeks into our stay and we all stay in the Holiday Inn Riverlights. The hotel is very comfortable and has all the amenities we need (free internet, gym, restaurant, room service, good breakfast, etc.). Location is good (near to the train and bus stations, shopping...

I've been staying here for around 5 months for business and I'm always pleased with my stay. The hotel is conveniently located to the Intu shopping centre and in walking distance to most of the restaurants/bars in town. There is also a taxi rank outside which is handy. The checking in process is always quick and seamless which is exactly... More

Over the last year I have tried virtually every hotel in Derby and this is the hotel I return to time and time again. The location is excellent, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the service is wonderful. The front of house staff go out of their way to make me and my colleagues feel welcome each week and...
