Stayed for one night, location is good but that's where it ends.Staff were efficient and helpful but the Hotel is very tired and needs some money spending on it Rooms were tatty and the bed sheets were threadbare and pillow hard as rocks and you shuddered to think what lay beneath the covers Bar area was reminiscent of a social...

We useually visit Derby 6 or 7 times a year, we have tried some of the other better rated hotels, none equal the Hallmark Inn, so we now book this hotel, knowing we are getting good value for money, friendly staff, good breakfast and plentyful, the chef is often checking on quality and we always get a good nights sleep....

We have stayed at this hotel a few times now, it suits us for a little weekend break. The breakfast is always good and its not too far from the shopping centre. Easy to find and plenty of car parking.

We stayed here overnight on Saturday because we were attending a nearby party so merely needed somewhere to sleep. We booked a double room it ended up with a family room so didn't have the table etc we expected but a sofa bed instead (alongside our double bed) that was made ready for sleeping in. We were happy with the... More

I stayed for the work week and while I have stayed at nicer hotels I cannot find any fault here. The room was large and clean, it is conveniently located close to the station and the city with ample parking. It has everything a business traveler would need at a good price. The staff I encountered were polite and efficient.

Stayed for one night as a treat for my elderly Mother. Ate out in the evening as this Hotel does not have a Restaurant but that was not a problem as there are many Restaurants close by. Bedroom lovely and comfortable-everything in it you should need. Dining Room for Breakfast nice and the breakfast was good too - cold foods... More

Stayed one night on business. Quick check in/out. Large free car park. Room clean. Bed comfortable and had a good nights sleep. Dining room a little shabby, some of the furniture needs replacing. Average breakfast, self service. Near to the train station. Plenty restaurants nearby.

This hotel is a clean, simple, fairly modern and economical option close to the Railway Station. It has a restaraunt downstairs for breakfast but should you require an evening meal then you will have to eat out. The associated restaraunt "Antibos" (previously reviewed) is an excellent choice as would be the "Sallamar" (previously reviewed) just two minutes away. The hotel... More

Gaming machine in reception area says it all. Tired hotel and furnishings. Only moderately clean. Everything is well past its "Best Before" date..... Buffet Breakfast miles below greasy spoon standard with cheap ingredients badly cooked. Bed was far too hard. Only thing going for this hotel (hostel) is that it is very close to the railway station.

The location is right outside the main train station in Derby. Its close to most things, and offers free parking. These are its plus points. The downside, (well there not really downsides in my opinion) but it doesn't leave you with any particular "WOW" factors. It ticks all the boxes you want from a hotel, decent sized rooms, which are... More
