Stayed here two nights Friday and Saturday night, in all their was twelve of us. Me and wife with our 4 month old son had a room in the gods which was quite annoying as as you can imagine trailing up and down with pram etc was quite annoying! The place looks a bit worn in places, carpets could do... More

This is a reasonably efficient, functional hotel. The single room was quite small, but had a comfortable bed, and a good shower, with TV & coffee making facilities. It wasn't very warm. Cost at £32 was reasonable, but breakfast would have been another £14 which seems a lot. It is adjacent to the station, but you can't check in until... More

This hotel was booked for me by someone else and my heart sank as I walked the few yards from Derby station toward its uninspiring - frankly ugly - frontage. Once inside however I was charmed by the staff and their willingness to do everything they could to try and match my requirements to try and overcome my disappointment. The... More

I planned this trip and specifically asked about disable rooms and their proximity to the main areas of the Hotel as well as the parking for blue badge holders. I was assured the rooms were very close, up just a couple of steps to the Bar and dinning area and the Disabled parking was by the back door which was... More

The breakfast was decent and the staff were ok but when I asked if there was any more milk I was asked if I... More

I am pleased to read that the few points you have made about the hotel have not put you off returning to the hotel in the future. Unfortunately the hotel exterior was already painted white when I started at the hotel. We did have an issue with the drains which ran into the street, this was resolved as quickly as... More

Even though the staff were nice and professional, the hotel itself looks very tired, the room smelled funny, bathroom was cold and room and bathroom really tiny. It could do better if some refurb is done.
