Spending a day at this hotel has been a pleasure. I attended for a conference lasting all day. Right from the start the staff were excellent and cheery which makes a difference on a wintery and snowy day. The food was great and the hotel was very clean and tidy. Of particular pleasantness was the open fire in the lobby... More

Just had my birthday here. This our third trip on Groupon, Fantastic staff, great food, very comfortable rooms, great leisure facility. Will definitely go again. I had a fantastic birthday. The staff could not do enough for us, they even sang happy birthday to me at dinner when they presented me with a cake.

stayed here for two nights on business, can't really find any fault considering the tariff is very reasonable. The food in the restaurant is good as is the breakfast, staff were very friendly and helpful. The standard of rooms and beds is good and comfortable, I don't like people cleaning my room so always put the do not disturb sign... More

I phoned and booked a lunch time table in the "restaurant " a couple of days ago We arrived right in time. We read the nice looking menu outside the restaurant and in we went.

The only reason I have given a rating of 4 instead of 5 is due to the interior decor needing upgrading and the limited channels on the TV. Overall this is a great hotel which I would use again. The gym was great and had plenty of machines, didn't use pool or beauty room but pool looked nice. Breakfast had... More

We spent the last night of 2014 at the Derbyshire Hotel, South Normanton. For a 4/5 start hotel the accommodation is looking tired with thinning carpets, a dripping shower, no facecloth and no heating (they did bring a portable heater). The meal was also disappointing and not to my taste. They did send out a pre-order form for wine and... More
