Stayed here one night in October while attending a wedding in Derby. It's about what you would expect from a holiday inn. Clean, spacious rooms and adequately helpful staff. They helped us get a cab to the wedding venue the next morning and arranged to charge it to our room because the cab couldn't take our credit card. Somehow we... More

A typical HI Express. With excellent front of house staff. I was made to feel welcome and the reception staff were eager to provide me with take away menus of local businesses. Providing me with cutlery, plates etc. Nothing was a problem for them. The hotel room was the standard offer, but was much roomier and pleasant than a Crowne... More

Friendly, efficient staff. Good-sized room. We liked the folding suitcase holder, also the two coat hooks on the wall - saved fiddling with the hangers in the wardrobe. Heating worked very well. Decent quality towels and bed linen. Bed was comfortable. Room was a little dark, as many are, but there were spot lights on the desk and at the... More
