We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Opposite Derby rail station it is ideally situated for visiting Derby city centre. Comfortable, large hotel with not many guests. Comfortable, clean room with all facilities. Lift to both floors. Very good breakfast. Italian based menu for dinner. We were the only couple eating in the room. Pleasant, friendly and very helpful... More

I visited this hotel on my first ever trip to Derby. I arrived from the train station which is a short 5 min walk away (unless like me you went the wrong way for 45 mins!) I arrived too early to check in so staff tried to see if there was another room I could have instead, there wasn't. So... More

Stayed one night, 14 July 2015. Have stayed before as it is convenient for me, opposite railway station. Staff always friendly and helpful. Single room (£57) has all the necessary: tea/coffee, hairdryer, tv, iron and ironing board, en suite. Cannot comment on breakfast as I book accommodation only and then go to M&S for a bacon sarnie and tea (before... More

Stayed at the Aston Court for ten days June/July 2015 no problems at all. Free parking onsite (rare in the UK) free WIFI, friendly staff who couldn't have been more helpful,a very comfortable bed. We were visiting family in Derby so it was such a convenient location we wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Aston again.

My husband and I stayed at the Smart Aston Court Hotel while visiting family in Derby. The rooms were very clean, and comfortable. We were only able to find one outlet in the room. If visiting from the USA, don't forget to take your adapter for the electrical plugs. Also, hotels in Europe don't supply wash cloths, so if you... More

As a hotel it's a little run down, seen better days, but it gave us everything we needed. Comfortable beds, well run bar, efficient breakfast, great location opposite the station, we were made very welcome.
