My friend and I have stayed twice on a groupon offer and have had a really enjoyable stay on both occasions. I guess it's all relative to what one has paid but on both occasions my friends and I have really enjoyed dinner and there is sufficient choice to suit most palates. Leisure facilities are an added bonus and early... More

Solar gain on the 'motorway side' of the building, a window restricted to open only about 20cm, and a hot July day resulted in Bedroom 340 resembling an oven on arrival at 7pm. Thank goodness for the fan! I left the fan running from the moment I got to the room until I checked out. It was just about bearable,... More

We used the hotel as a stop off for the peak district and a visit to Chatsworth, entry which was paid for in the package. Generally clean but window ledges and window framework were dusty. Good rooms and comfortable bed let down by on air conditioning. This is probably the case with too many hotels in the UK but it... More

Overall good value for money, just off m1 therefore easy access and close to Nottingham and derby. Food is a little expensive and room menu limited. Staff helpful and friendly. Small but functional gymn, large pool and spa.

Can't say much about this hotel except to advise that your room must be on the ground floor if the weather is warm. If it has been a warm day the upper rooms are unbearable and have no air-con. It seems unbelievable that any modern building can be so bad. Strangely the bathroom tap delivered only cold or tepid water... More

Found out bottle of wine to be got from bar, but unable to take it into restaurant - a very odd thing. Staff... More

I was due to stay here on a summer day (we'd booked a few rooms as part of a big group). It was warm outside but nothing too excessive. When we got into the room it was sweltering. We could tell right away we wouldn't be able to sleep. We tried opening the window but that did very little -... More

I got married at the Derbyshire in May 2013, it was 16 months in planning and our wedding planner Sharon, was amazing, patient and inspirational. Our host on the day, Johnathon, was like a magician, everytime we thought something needed doing he appeared out of nowhere to tell us it was already sorted. The price was exceptional for the service... More
