This was a special weekend for us as a number of family members went to Derby to see a play that our cousin had written and it was being performed in Derby theatre. This hotel proved to be an excellent location. It is the centre of Derby just a few minutes walk to the theatre which is situated in the... More

We were allocated one of the 6 smoking rooms this hotel has out of more than 100 rooms. Apparently on my booking I had requested a smoking room. The internet booking was shown to me when I complained that the room smelled. I explained that it must have been my error. All other doubles were taken so we got room... More

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 have had nothing but a great experience whilst staying in the hotel frequently for the past year. The rooms are clean and modern, the location is great and the staff are always friendly and happy to help. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

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
