Large carpark, pleasant reception staff. So far much more pleasurable than PI. Room was clean and presentable but the old cathode TV was disappointing. I didn't stay for dinner but the breakfast was good. Check out was swift and overall a good stay bar for the TV. Will book again.

My partner and I stayed here on June 28th during a visit to nearby Matlock Bath. Although we were originally disappointed to find the hotel was 13miles away from Matlock (and right by the motorway), instead of the 6 miles quoted online, we were very impressed with the hotel itself. On arrival the staff were helpful and pleasant and the... More

Large room but furniture outdated, comfortable bed and given the location near main roads surprisingly quiet. The only two real downsides was the fact that the restaurant for breakfast is really too small to cope and the food for conference participants was nothing special.

Thank you for your review. We are very looking that even with our easy access location near the J28 of M1 and the A38 we get little noise plus we have an edge of the beautiful peak district. We are currently reviewing our conference food offering and thank you for your feedback. Best wishes, The Management Team More

Stayed this weekend for two nights and paid £130. The price was discounted I think as the leisure facilities are out of action! I think what we paid was fair as in my opinion it is no better than a premiere inn, in fact I've stayed at better premiere inns! There is one NXT door as it happens!! The hotel... More

I joined friends for a Groupon Spa day at the Derbyshire recently. I thought the idea of groupon was to encourage good feedback and recommendations, somethimg I would not do for this spa day experience. On arrival we were told we could not book additional treatments as they were full, ( we telephoned two weeks prior to book extra treatments... More

We stayed there on Friday and Saturday evening in June and thought it was pleasant and good value. We checked in on the afternoon and the receptionist was very efficient and polite. The room and bathroom was clean and the shower worked well. I noted someone's comments re old fashioned TV which was very true and was somewhat surprised they... More

The brochure pictures probably raised my expectations of the hotel so I'm a little disappointed. The staff are very friendly & helpful, it is very clean with decent facilities in the gym & pool. The room is clean & reasonable size. So why am I dissapointed? Some might think some of my comments petty but still here they are. The... More

We only had night at this hotel. Its actual location is near housing, but it is near to some beautiful countryside so is a good base. The room we had was spacious (for a couple and a young child), clean and well-equipped. The hotel facilities such as the pool were good, too. We had a stay which included an evening... More

We recently returned from a stay at the hotel on a travelzoo deal and were very impressed. The staff couldn't be more helpful and very friendly and the food was excellent. Really enjoyable stay. Thank you.
