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. The location is ideal for the station and connections to the airport. If not using public transport the car park is adjacent to the... More

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

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
