This hotel was beautiful. It was extremely clean and comfortable and the staff were excellent and very helpful. Right in the centre of Derby it was very convenient and we also ate upstairs in the restaurant at night. The food was very good.

I feel I have to update my previous review of this hotel, after staying here for over 40 nights in the last 3 months. After my initial trip to this hotel, I have tried SEVERAL hotels in and around Derby. However, in the end, I chose this hotel to base myself for a 3 month project, and stayed here full... More

My partner and I stayed for one Saturday night, great room, very clean, with a very comfortable bed. The hotel is situated right in the centre of Derby, so step out of the hotel and you're there. Having said that, the room was really quite, with no noise from the street below. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The... More

Arrived late on a Saturday night (about 23.30). The location of the hotel (slap bang next to a night club/casino?) immediately raised alarms which were completely justified as to rowdiness/drunks etc. upon checking in, was informed that I would need to park in a nearby multi storey and this is where my fun began. Whilst it was not too difficult... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review. I am disappointed to hear of your experieince outside of the hotel; I will certainly be sharing your comments with the management company for the car park, as it is a public car park and not one managed by ourselves; it is certainly not the impression that I would want any guest...

Staff were all very happy to help and inform us of all the hotel facilities. There was breakfast buffet included which made this stay even better as the city centre was atleast 15-20 mins walk from the hotel, would have been a mission sorting breakfast!

The rooms were spotless and well-appointed. Appreciably more costly than the accommodation we had first looked at in the same general area, but very worth the difference. Excellent location to historical downtown, and close to the river garden walk. Complete quiet through the night and wifi 'hot spot' were greatly appreciated. Clerk David was knowledgable and most helpful, assisting us... More

Stayed here often. Always clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff, especially front desk, really pleasant. Right in the centre so good for bars and restaurants. I would certainty recommend for both business and pleasure travel

Dear Guest Thank you for your great review. With regard to your heading of 'not great for parking'; we do not have an onsite car park but we are able to recommend the Westfield Riverside Car Park a few minutes walk from the hotel and we offer 50% discount on the overnight charge. We hope to see you again soon.... More

We stayed here this last weekend and visited Alton Towers the next day which was around a 40 minute drive. The hotel was lovely, very clean and spacious. The staff at check in and breakfast were very helpful and prompt. The room was comfortable and clean. However was a little noisy when rooms nearby used the water supply. The breakfast... More

We stayed here for a family trip to Alton Towers. The hotel is spotless and is really well positioned for the town centre and for the theme park which is a straightforward 40 min drive through lovely countryside. We paid £195 for two nights for 4 people and for that we got two rooms - the boys' rooms was massive... More

Stayed one night, check in OK, checked in a little early which was good. Hotel nice, rooms decent size, quilts too small, shower more of a trickle but rooms had a bath too. Didn't have breakfast but it was £9.95 if you wanted it. Plenty of food places nearby. Carpark a ripoff at £15 a night. Overall a nice hotel... More
