Stayed here last Saturday night as visiting Derby for the first time and wanted to stay over. Booked a room on-line which cost £20.14 per person, quoting the Derby reference which we got after searching on-line for attractions in Derby, which we thought was great value. The room was spacious, modern, clean, felt really luxurious and the bathroom was ultra... More

The hotel has a great location, right in the heart of the town, adjacent to the bus station and the riverside. The street is noisy, but with the windows closed it is not too disturbing. It was for this reason that I requested a riverview room rather than one facing the street. This was confirmed prior to arrival; unfortunately when... More

I am I member of IHG reward scheme but was told that I couldn't collect any points as I had booked as part of a trip to Alton Towers - bit disappointing as I... More

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

Dear TravellingViking1977, Thank you for writing a review about your stay. I am pleased to read you like our modern rooms and helpful staff. However, it was regrettable to see the bed condition and food selection that was served were not quite what you were expecting from our hotels. We take all reviews positive and negative very seriously, and your... More
