“Great hotel, clean rooms, lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights, went for a mini-holiday to discover Peak District. The city itself was very boring, we didn't do much sightseeing tour in town. The hotel was clean, new-looking, our room was a spacious and clean corner room with large windows. Shower was huge. So many Holiday Inns and Express hotels all around the world were rather disappointing but this property surprised us. The staff is polite and attentive. I made some research for hiking and walking places in the Peak and we would have gone there but luckily we met Jackie at the reception, who helped us to plan our days with her excellent insider tips and ideas. It turned out that her local knowledge saved us from several disappointment. The places she recommended, were amazing and remarkable, with her care and attentiveness overall during our stay she really made our trip unforgettable.
The dinner at the bar was great and we got a lot of attention and good customer service from Amira as well. There were two computers with printer for guests in the lobby to use internet complimentary, that was great. We would definitely return, thank you and keep it up.

Room Tip: Go for corner room with view if it's available.

This hotel is smart and clean - its decorated to a high standard and our room had a fantastic bathroom with a massive walk in shower. The bar downstairs is reasonable too and there is seating outside. Although we didnt eat here, the food looked nice. The air-con system in the rooms was very modern and useful.
Breakfast was nice but very busy and the room is quite small - there was a small selection but it was nice. Would recommend and stay again.

The young staff make this hotel. Stayed here many times last year for work. It is immaculate, the staff are really friendly and helpful.

5 mins walk into the centre, has plenty of parking available. Food available is average pub grub, but there are plenty of restaurants in the town if you want something nicer.

Stayed here for one night. Clean, bright and modern. Nice rooms with a large shower.
Breakfast included in the price. Location - 10 min walk from tram stop. Went to a gig at the Motorpoint Arena and was well placed for that. Friendly staff.
Tip - pay for parking in the hotel car park at reception not at the pay station.

This hotel was easy to get to unlike some of the other city hotels. Only a ten minute walk into city centre. Parking on site is a bonus. The rooms are bright clean and modern. Very well equipped with a huge bathroom and very large shower. The staff were really friendly and helpful, even when they were busy. Breakfast was included in the price which was only £55 per night and was excellent. We would definitely stay here again. Excellent value for money. We also had a lovely view of the River Don and the city centre - bonus.

Stayed for one night. Excellent clean and modern. Near a busy road but lovely and quiet, rooms spacious with biggest shower I have ever seen in a hotel. Bar bright and clean and reasons b my priced. Excellent breakfast. I would suggest sticking to main road at night however. Round the corner from a quaint Maina.

Difficult to find, this Holiday Inn Express was the chosen hotel for an evening meeting, and turned out to be rather good. Parking was easy with clearly marked disabled bays - but I do object to hotels charging for parking when you are giving them your business. Power chair access was easy and the lounge/bar/reception was modern, very clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful whilst not being in your face all of the time, and there was a smoking al fresco eating area outside - although not with the best views!
We chose to eat from the lounge menu, which whilst limited offered a good choice and all four options we opted for were well-cooked and presented. The Access toilets were reasonably accessible, but lacked the so often forgotten coat hooks. It is a common mistake as able bodied people do not often have to disrobe to go to the loo.
My colleagues who were staying in the hotel told me rooms were really good, and that this was a clean and modern hotel with better than average fittings and services (for an 'Express').
It may not be the easiest to find, but my satnav took me right to it, and there are road signs to point you to the hotel and car park. Would I return? - yes, but would still like to see parking included in the price for customers.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your great comments and we will definately take on boards your comment on the coat hander in the public accessible toilets.

With regards to the comments on the car parking, we are constantly trying to offer our guests car parking inclusive rates which are now available to opt for online when making a reservation.

Hope to see you again soon
