This is my second stay here. Check-in was not very friendly - we arrived quite late in the evening and were very tired - we were allocated a twin bedded room, but wanted and requested a double, but told they were fully booked (which was hard to believe the following morning as it definitely did not feel like the hotel...

A night away with the lads from down under ofcourse we had to cross over the midlands and hit derby for a night out and meet the locals. We managed to turn up at this hotel and glad we did it was more than we needed that's for sure and the price was a steal. The staff were brilliant and... More

Perfect city centre location just across the road from the shopping centre. Very clean & tastefully decorated hotel with immaculate bathroom & large bedroom. Stayed on Valentine's night & special menu was delicious. Breakfast very fresh & frequently replenished. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed for two nights on a city type break. We had most of the weekend planned out. On the Friday lunch time it was a visit to the National Winter Ales Festival at the Round House, there was a courtesy bus to the festival and it stopped right outside the hotel's front door. Great for when we returned !!... More

The hotel is a bit tricky to find, there is no free car parking nearby. The hotel looks very new and is furnished to a high standard. The top floor is the bar and restaurant with good views over Derby, but why was it so empty upstairs? My main question is why does the TV not have BBC4 and Radio... More

This hotel is located very close to Derby's very large indoor shopping centre, previously called Westfield now Intu. The car park called Intu Riverside is slightly closer to the hotel. But is still a considerable walk from the hotel and there is no opportunity outside the hotel to drop off luggage. Make sure you give your car park tickets in... More

This hôtel is very modern and well equipped. Bedrooms are large and confortable, particularly I appreciated the bathroom and separated toilets. Breakfast is nice and complete however the diner was horrible, very expensive, long wait and half choice on the menu. I recomende the hotel but not the restaurant.
