We come to Derby on business up to 4 times a year. Initially we were booked into one of two generic hotel chains. We then discovered Rae and Geoff's Guest House and have stayed with them since. The welcome is warm and sincere. Quality is found in every nook and they have thought of everything to make your stay perfect.... More

We are back for our third visit to Thornhill, and pleased to say we have a very comfortable room as usual, a lovely breakfast (especially the bacon!), and a good nights sleep. Last time we did not feel like dining out after being out all day, so bought something at the local Supermarket which we prepared in the guest kitchen,... More

My brother and I stayed here on the weekend of the 14th June in order to attend a friends 60th Birthday celebration in Mickleover. The room was a twin but was extremely well furnished and felt very much like a home from home. Bottled water was provided in the room along with the usual coffee, tea etc. There was the... More

I was a guest here for 10 months (two days a week). The quality was consistent throughout. The accommodation was superb and the service was excellent. Good TV in each room and wifi. The breakfasts were of very good quality; with considerable variety and served when you wanted them. There was a kitchen for guests and so there was help... More

Stayed last weekend. Very impressed!! Lovely location, friendly welcome, spacious room, great sleep, large TV, with a kitchenette, and your own dressing gown - you don't get that in a Hilton! Lovely house as well - my own house seems so small now. Geoff and Rea made me really welcome and the Rock Cakes were appreciated after the long drive... More

Very clean and well presented guest house. Very quiet location and excellent comfortable beds. Breakfast was as advertised, with no complaints. Good parking and close to city centre. Lots of places to eat out or take-away meals can be brought back to the kitchen that is for guest use. Car park available at the rear of the house with nice... More

For several years, a group of us has stayed at Thornhill over the May bank holiday while we take part in a local archery tournament. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. As well as tea and coffee in the room (and a huge, delicious rock cake to greet you when you arrive!) there is a guest kitchen with... More
