Stayed here for just one night following a visit to family in Derby. The location is good next to the train station and taxi rank which made getting into the city centre very simple. The hotel has a free car park. Check in and out was simple and efficient, and staff were friendly and approachable. Our room was clean and... More

The picture on the offer indicates Hotel is in a Derby main road with shops etc. Wrong. It is a 10 minute walk to the centre. Having looked at other reviews I was cautious on arrival and found that the awful room that was talked about (104) was next door to ours (102). The room card which accompanied our door... More

A bit brutal to say it needs to close - but it's one of a class of hotels I've been to on business that are unloved and unadopted, and it's clear that the current regime simply can't afford to sort things out. The conversion of the hotel building was already a complete mess (did building control ever see it?) so... More

Thank you for your nice review, I am glad you found the deal to be of good value and that you enjoyed your stay and the location. Unfortunately the hotel does not have air conditioning but I am glad this did not ruin your stay, the hot weather is a bonus for us in the uk. More

We had a two day break at this hotel to see the city of Derby. Good location close to the railway station, though we used the very convenient hotel carpark situated at the rear of the hotel.

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback on your stay, we are in the process of redecorating all rooms at present, however due to the ground floor having the least rooms, this floor will be completed last. We have completed our top floor and first floor is under way now so it should not be too long before we... More

Our stay was great from start to finish, the rooms were really nice, beds comfortable and great shower. The staff were so friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent and there was plenty if it. We will certainly be making a return visit, and would recommend it to our friends. Well done Smart Aston.
