Rooms are fairly basic, but the comfortable bed & clean bathroom are fine for 1 night. Staff were pleasant and very friendly. Breakfast was standard, but the waitress asked if I wanted anything from the kitchen which was a nice touch. I'd stay again but was disappointed that as a lone female guest, I was given a ground floor room.

We chose the hotel for It's locality to the train station. It's only a two minute walk, and you can see it as soon as you exit Derby station. There are a few really nice pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance, and if you like Indian, I can recommend The Viceroy. Great food, and the hotel have discount vouchers... More

The hotel itself is in an ideal location right across from the railway station where you can get the skylink bus straight to the airport. the room was clean and spacious, the bar area was nice and relaxing and staff could not be nicer. My only criticism would be that our bed was very uncomfortable as you could feel all... More

My wife and I recently stayed for a two night weekend via a Groupon deal. Although the hotels décor is rather tired and could do with some TLC the staff however were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We was initially allocated a corner room at the front but that was noisy due to the busy... More

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback regarding your recent stay with us, I gather from you comments that you took advantage of paying extra for the upgrade to one of our Executive Doubles.

Me and my partner stayed here on a Groupon Deal and it was fantastic. Afternoon tea and breakfast was really good. Our room was lovely and cosy. Great location to walk to the shops and the park with the river running through it. Free car park too. We had a really lovely weekend, thanks very much.

A budget hotel situated very close to the railway station amongst other hotels. This was a 2 night amazon voucher very reasonably priced and included high tea on arrival or the choice of a glass of wine. It has a 3 star AA rosette but I think this is a little generous. It has the benefit of its own car... More
