We had a 2 night stay and for the free tea on arrival I asked if they had glutton free bread and Emma said no but we will get you some which they did. I thought this was brilliant as I've asked previously to be told no. Tony went to get the bread. The breakfast was very good and bacon... More

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

A good experience in terms of the staff and the trouble taken to make guests feel comfortable. The hotel itself is a little dated and the room was very cramped but they are really trying! Food at breakfast good and the hotel itself was comfortably furnished. Nice little garden which is helpful for smokers! Cannot say enough about the helpfulness... More

This hotel is in the centre and very near the station making it great as a central base for touring the area. Our visit was a stopover that we extended to 2 nights having bought a Amazon Local voucher on the cheap. The hotel is a 3 star but not a bad one, there are good reception, lounge and bar... More

We booked two nights at this hotel as we had to make a business call and decided to make a weekend of it when we saw the offer on Amazon local.

We booked the Smart Aston Court Hotel to explore the Peak District area and the Canal waterways, we also wanted to be in a town with a good selection of restaurants close by. The room was clean and well equipped, the hotel staff were friendly and provided excellent service throughout our stay. The addition of a mini bar or fridge... More

We visited this hotel for 2 nights in August. Location is good, near to the train station and 6-8 mins walk to the town. We stayed in 101 which was on the ground floor looking out onto the car park. The room was a very good size. A couple of negative things was that I didn't feel i could leave... More

My husband and I took advantage of a special two night stay in Derby, giving us time to be with friends.

This hotel appeared to have everything we wanted but turned out to be a disappointment. The furnishings in the reception area are in need of replacement and uncomfortable to sit on. The room was on the ground floor, as requested but was too small and overpowering with the direct sunshine coming into the room, which made it stifling. Pleased we... More
