Would use again if in... More

After a night out with the wife I looked at the room and there was dust and sweet packets everywhere. I paid for a double bed and got two singles and I could not connect to the wi-fi First time I stayed here and will be the last.

Two nights over the weekend. Twin room fine, facing the road so got a little noisy, but adequate size for two sharing with kettle, TV and a good shower. Breakfast from buffet fine, however some of our party got locked out due to insufficient space in dining room. Good location, plenty of excellent pubs within easy walking distance, only small...

Having stayed in every hotel in Derby I find this hotel the most consistent, with very friendly staff, good parking and well situated. The hotel is very clean, well priced and offers everything you want for a great night's sleep. The breakfast is great value and the bar is ideal for a chilling drink. I will always stay here when...

I spent a couple of nights here with business. Rooms were shabby and dated but it was clean. Room not on road side was quiet. Breakfast was fine. Buffet with full English and standard, toast and cereal options, all of mediocre quality. Ok for the price.

Overall I was very happy with my stay here as a budget option for a short stay in Derby. The hotel is handily located just a couple of minutes walk from the station and a half mile to the city centre. The reception staff were friendly and efficient as were all of the hotel staff. The room was pretty standard... More

Thanks for your very positive comments about the hotel and the staff, I am sorry if we let you and ourselves down at breakfast, we always staff to the number we are forecasting but do get caught out sometimes. On this particular morning we did bring a extra member of staff in to help. More

Everything about this hotel was average. Breakfast and location for Derby centre was good. Most of the staff were helpful. I personally would not stay here again. Derby area is great and the weather on our stay was very good.

A basic modest cost hotel very near to the Railway Station, similar to Premier Inn style. Comfortable bed, clean, although showing signs of wear in the carpet and a modern bathroom. Large and luxurious towels, hot water at all times, tubes of shampoo and shower gel with a wrapped tablet of good soap. The staff are young and keen. Breakfast... More
