Hotel tucked away just off junction 28 of the M1. Just 30 minutes drive to Bakewell and lovely walking area. Spotlessly clean room and comfy bed, my only gripe with the room was that it was very hot at night and although we opened the window we could hear traffic from the M1 and A38 but that was preferable to...

Stayed here recently as part of a group. Our room was clean and comfortable with a good size bathroom and lovely large white fluffy towels. We found without exception all the members of staff pleasant and helpful. I was not able to connect my I-Pad to WIFI even using the supplied codes but the Receptionist soon did this for me.... More

The hotel is ideally situated just off the M1 and very easy to find. There is ample car parking even when there is a function taking place. Check in was very quick and I was directed to my room 265 in no time. The room is very spacious and well equipt with trouser press, ironing board and tea making facilities.... More

We used The Derbyshire Hotel as a base for a Peak District Bank Holiday getaway and weren't disappointed. We booked online direct with the hotel and received a discount and breakfast included for a room only price. Our room was supposed to be a twin but we emailed a request for a double and this was honoured. It was rather... More

Check in was quick, however the receptionist did not mention the leisure facilities or the free WiFi codes. Hallway carpet was very worn with holes. The allocated room was dusty with a very memorable nasty smell and the window was not closing When I call reception the other receptionist immediately told me the hotel was fully booked and would call...

Booked this hotel after seeing a good deal advertised on Travelzoo, but have come away with mixed emotions First impressions weren't good as it was almost impossible to contact the hotel by phone to confirm our booking. I sent an email but never received a reply, and after trying again by phone I eventually got the booking confirmed. The room... More

Came here for a couple of days break after getting married. The room they first allocated us was apparently a superior room but with scum on the toilets and pubic hair as an added extra was a put off. The white window marking was also an awful view. They did however move us to a standard room with no arguments... More

First of all - this review is based on two stays in close proximity (within a two week period) staying for a total of nine nights. The good stuff first!
