Stayed here for three nights on a business trip. Straight of the motorway so handy. Bedroom clean and bed comfortable. Bathroom was cleaned and maintained. Only disappointment was the quality of the television and audio which was very dated. Wifi was available in all areas of the hotel through a code from reception. Breakfast was okay, and staff all friendly... More

Me and my husband stayed one night on a Travelzoo deal. It was excellent value for money. The staff were first class from start to finish. We used the spa facilities which were great. Our evening meal was lovely and very well presented. Our room was comfortable if not a little dated in appearance. I would definitely stay in this... More

Weekend conference, nice facilities and very helpful staff. Food throughout was excellent. On the first night my bedside lamp was not working and the mattress was uncomfortable, both of these were rectified as soon as reported and charmingly, a complimentary box of fudge was left in apology. Swimming pool facilities were good and provided welcome relief at the end of... More

Just back from a two day conference at the Derbyshire. Although it's quite difficult to get to by public transport (I suspect it's really aimed at car drivers, as it's just off the M1), once there, the welcome was warm. The staff were great - very friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile. Food in the bar is... More

Business hotel, convenient for motorway. Staff very obliging and express checkout facility appreciated. Room clean but overwarm and choice of TV channels very limited. Full sized ironing board useful. Indifferent restaurant, overpriced meal plus nearly £9 for a glass of wine, with limited food choice, young staff worked really hard. Breakfast average.

The staff were very friendly, especially Clare on the reception desk, and made us feel welcome. The evening dinner was fantastic and would highly recommend eating here. Breakfast the next day was equally as good and had some of the best sausages I've ever tasted!! Access to the swimming pool, sauna and steam room was an added bonus and was... More

Arrive on Friday evening to be greeted by very friendly accommodating staff. First impressions were good. The room was a standard double and was clean and tidy. The soft furnishing we're starting to look tired and in places threadbare. Everything was clean and tidy the housekeeping staff were obviously very efficient. The Tempus dining room was relatively small and we... More
