Spent a night here unexpectedly due to a change of plans. Booked in to a single room which only cost as much as dinner at a decent restaurant! The hotel is right outside the train station and close to the city centre so location could not be better. The staff were friendly and had no hassle getting the room sorted.... More

The hotel is clean, smart and the staff are great. However the hotel room was a bit 'querky.' Floor boards in the bedroom sqeaked a lot, the cold water started hot, but after running for a while it went cold. The showing for, I presume similar reason, took a little while to setting down. Tea and coffee making facilities in... More

Booked for a one night stay and choose the hotel because it was a good rate and close to the station which was ideal for what I wanted. I arrived early and found the staff very helpful and kept my bag until I was ready to check-in later on in the afternoon which is why this kind of hotel always... More

Thank you for your comments, I am glad you found the hotel staff pleasant and the location convenient. I do agree that some of the bathrooms are on the smaller side, this is purely down to the hotel originally being one of the units and as the other units became available over the years they were purchased by the original...

I have stayed here before and it was an easy place to stay. It still is, but the hotel is so understaffed. The reception looks good, and the rooms are fine, but there seemed to be only 3 people on duty covering everything. The manager was the only one available to make me a sandwich. I also wanted a soft... More

Exceptionally well-placed for the railway station and airport - 24/7 Skylink bus every 30 mins to East Midlands airport stops right outside. 15 min traffic free walk into town centre, 25 min walk to Derby Conference centre and plenty of buses to there too. Good sized room (222) and good desk for working at. Very good value at £47 per... More

To celebrate my imminent 70th birthday four of us decided to take up a Groupon offer to stay at the Smart Aston Hotel. The picture with the advert showed a lovely modern building set beside a lake/river and the advert mentioned a golf course close by. However when the sat nav brought us to our destination we were so disappointed... More

My friend and I first stayed at the Smart Aston Court in July of this year. We enjoyed the stay so much we returned in September. On all counts the boxes are ticked for this hotel.

Located directly opposite the railway station. Our room was small, clean and comfy and whilst the decor and furnishings could do with some refurbishment at £60 for a night I'm not complaining. Our room overlooked the station and by 8am there was some traffic noise although I was not aware of any through the night. Of course, if you're a... More
