Hallmark Inn is located in an old building needing lots of maintenance. There are no irons or ac or fans in the room. When I asked the front desk for a fan they would not bring it to the room and I had to come to the front desk for it . The fan was loaded with dust and when... More

What a discovery! Here was a clean and modern Hotel, within 2 minutes' walk of the Railway Station and its busy Bus turning-circle. I cannot fault presentation of my room, housekeeping or helpful Reception. Moreover, the ample Buffet Breakfast - in with the price - was one of the best I've seen...with, crucially, the finest Bacon I have ever been... More

We were staying in Derby on the Saturday night for a visit to Alton Towers Splash Landings, at the last moment we booked a room at the Hallmark inn and decided to travel up Friday night. On arrival we managed to squeeze into a car parking space (they are tiny) and check in. The girl on check in was rather... More

This is a budget hotel which just about punches above it's weight. Definitely a step above its two local rivals (Smart Aston and Stuart). The latter being an abysmal place. Wifi is free and quick. Breakfast is ok. Good location for the station and free parking. The Antibo Italian restaurant next door is also ok for a basic meal at... More

Very clean and extremely well priced. My husband and I had our 3 year old with us and the room was well prepared for us and our son. The price was amazing and the breakfast was very good. Only downfall was the receptionists, neither were particularly welcoming or helpful.

This hotel is very conveniently situated for the station, and is a very good price. There are a number of restaurants around, and the city centre is only a 10 minute walk away. The excellent Brunswick Inn is just round the corner.

We came as a coach party with Shearings and were so well welcomed by staff. Tea and coffee ready. Breakfast was varied and had something for everyone. The whole experience was faultless and enjoyable. A lovely atmosphere throughout our stay. It is a 5* in my eyes for service.

Spent two nights here and now suffering from sleep deprivation, the beds (racks of torture) are about as comfortable as a camp bed with added lumps, the pillows are similar to cardboard in their degree of comfort. The lighting interestingly is strip lighting creating an interesting air of kitchen about your room. Rough guess I would say the rooms were... More

Stranded in Derby between meetings and needing somewhere to stay for the night this was my choice. Well located close to the train station with good parking. Lots of broken glass in the adjacent street and I see some reference to the hotel carpark being affected previously but I had no problem whatsoever. Receptionist could have listened better as it...
