The advantages..... We stayed here as a party of 9 for one night as we had an early flight the next morning. The cost of the room plus parking for 1 week worked out quite good value. The drop off/pick up transfer system for the airport works well and is reliable, the driver was very polite. The indoor pool and... More

This is the third time that we have stayed in this hotel while visiting relatives in the area. Although on the outskirts of Derby it only takes 15 mins to get into the hustle and bustle of the city. There is ample parking at a cost of £5 per day. The rooms we booked - one family which was huge... More

Very helpful staff but only stay if you are happy with a hotel in need of a total refurb. Peeling wallpaper, holes in walls, black tile grout in the bathroom & chipped old furniture are not what I associate with the Hilton brand (we stay in Hilton's at least 3 times a year every year). Food was good and rooms... More

Firstly I have to begin by saying that the staff were excellent - very polite, helpful and professional. The problem is the hotel itself. The exterior and reception are well presented but the room I stayed in (301) was tired and a little tatty. I don't tend to be a light sleeper but anyone who was would have a problem.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to be close to alton towers. I'm not exagerating when I say this was the worst 2 nights sleep I have ever had! We checked in where we we're given no information about times for dinner, the leisure centre or breakfast. Went to our room which absolutely stunk of damp and was freezing cold!... More

We flew from East Mids at 4am 18/08 so staying here at £89 for the night plus 10 days parking is a steal given airport parking is £79 for the same period. The hotel is tired. the ceiling in the gym shower was speckled with mould as was the grout in the pool. Beds uncomfortable and the food extortionate and... More

I have stayed at many Hiltons so have come to learn what to expect and I have ways been pleased with the level of comfort they offer however this hotel was a little different. I was picked up at the airport by the Hilton mini bus which was a great service and arrived at the hotel just after midnight. Got... More

We recently stayed over night at this Hilton prior to flying to Dublin on the ridiculous only daily flight by Ryanair leaving at 0630am. We arrived early in the evening, trouble free parking and registering before eating a substantial Steak baguette and snuggling down to sleep about 8-30. We were called at 0345 and whisked up to airport departures for... More

Used this hotel as a stop over and carpark for an early morning flight at East Midlands Airport. Location for ease of access off the M1 and to get to airport are fantastic and great value for money. Staff are all very helpful and the gym / swimming pool are really good. I had an informal meal in the piano... More
