The only difference between visiting Hallmark Inn and a hospital, is when you leave the Hallmark you feel worse than when you arrived. There were large stains on the some of the furniture, towels and the pillows. When I showed the receptionist pictures of these stains as we checked out - no apology was offered and I was questioned why... More

Initially we were booked in at the annexe across the road. Probably the worse room I have ever stayed in. Mattress and base really stained and room was musty and in need of work and decorating. The other room we booked was a family room. Couldn't move because of the pull out bed. Asked if we could move to the... More

If you want a cheap and cheerful hotel then this is the one for you. Clean and well appointed rooms, very friendly staff, free parking and free wi-fi. Location is great - near to the railway station and the city centre including the Westfield (intu Derby) shopping centre.

Wallpaper falling off. The décor felt like I was visiting my gran in the 60s. Dusty on all surfaces. Really hot rooms, no air con or way of cooling the rooms even with the cheap fans, had to leave window open and deal with the shouting / screaming from the night life. The window opened about an inch. Chose hotel... More

I stayed at this hotel but I have to say I was slightly disappointed. The rooms were very clean but dated and needed modernisation. Rooms are large and the bed is comfy. Breakfast is brilliant. The hotel does have a free car park and is within walking distance of the city centre. Would consider booking again.

I stayed here for work for 4 nights. This hotel is a one minute walk from the train station, and about ten minutes walk from the Westfield shopping centre. The rooms were a good size and the room itself was clean. The staff were all really nice and housekeeping were amazing. I am coming back next week for work and... More

I wrote a very good review of this hotel 3 yrs ago when it was the European Hotel (Sept 2011). We have since used it roughly once a year, but we will probably not use it again because although the prices have increased it has not maintained the standards of the European and I blame Hallmark for this, they have...
