Good points plenty of parking and the staff are super friendly. Bad points. Bit of a sad tired hotel. I can imagine 10-15 years ago it would have been really nice but now it's just dated and disappointing. Thread bare carpets and carpet tape covering other holes. I think the tv was gas powered and only had about 4 working... More

While the service is good and staff polite, that in its self doesn't make a good hotel. Yes lots of facilities here, then there is the negatives. The rooms (standard) are adequate and clean, the TV is something from the past, why on earth do they have CRT TV's in this day and age? The picture squashed up on every... More

Close to M1 and so easy to find. Needs recapturing as there are places where you can see the vacuum cleaner has removed the pile. Superior double room comfortable with good enough-suite but we couldn't't adjust the heating so it was too warm. Pleasant staff and good breakfast. We ate in the restaurant on one evening of our stay and... More

I stayed at the Derbyshire Hotel for one night. The reception area was lovely and the receptionist was extremely friendly and welcoming. The room, however, was very dated and quite shabby. There were water ring marks on all items of wooden furniture, the walls had marks and big dents on them, there were gaps between the carpet and door frames... More

My wife and I had a great stay early Dec. Room, Food and Staff were all superb, but the one "fly in the ointment" was the very cold lounge/bar area.Due to the close proximity of the entrance to one of the 2 entrances to this area, most customers, if not all, were wearing outside clothing in this area.A simple solution...

Nice hotel, nice guest rooms and staff excellent. Breakfast was superb and evening meal likewise. Only fault for me was the bar prices far too high. But would recommend for business travel. Nice size car park and handy for motorway. No noise issues.

We booked a 2 night super break just to get away, it is so true, you get what you pay for! The hotel can't be any nearer to the M1, the hotel does not look inviting from the outside.

This hotel was very welcoming , very clean and the staff were accommodating. However, our room was the last on the second floor with views of the M1!!! Other rooms looked out on gardens and the pool.
