“Good for a night's stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We stayed here for one night when we went up to Derby for a wedding. Excellent location with the cinema opposite and an attached restaurant and bar. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent, although we did have to wait a while for it.
Would stay there again!

Clean tidy and friendly staff the restaurant was very good as well you have an added bonus of having a cinema right next door and Gala bingo if that's your thing. Parking is easy and location to city centre ok.

I have always liked Premier Inns but this was the quietest one I have stayed in. During the hot weather they provided a fan in every room, the offer of a sheet instead of the duvet and the staff provided chilled water for all the guests. The staff were very warm and friendly

This was so dispointing even for Premier Inns standards after a long drive, the whole Hotel and Oasthouse could do with a complete makeover not the cleanest of Premiers and Restaurants to be honest, even aircon in the room would help, the only plus here was the staff were very friendly, however would never choose to stay here again

Room Tip: Would not stay here again

Just returned from visiting our son in Derby and stayed at the Premier Inn South for the second time. From the start we had no complaints. The receptionist was very friendly , polite and helpful. We had requested a room on the first floor overlooking the car park and that is what we were allocated. We had booked breakfast and I can honestly say it was perfectly cooked and presented. The staff in the dining area were also friendly, helpful and polite. What can woe say another great stay wind would definitely return.

This is the first time I stayed in a Premier Inn. I used to stay in a Travelodge but other people suggested that I try a Premier Inn because they are better quality. I am glad I accepted their advice.

While the hotel is not situated in the best part of town, being in a poor area, there is plenty of parking and the hotel and restaurant were excellent. The reception staff were very helpful. The room was fantastic, with a very comfy bed and an excellent bathroom and shower.

The food in the restaurant was very good, as was the service. Breakfast was very good and it was nice that it is cooked to order and you can have as much or as little as you like.

I would definitely visit this hotel again.

This was a second visit to this hotel. Check in was quick and painless. Staff very friendly. As before, the room and bathroom were exceptionally clean. A comfortable nights sleep at an extremely reasonable price. Dinner at the adjacent restaurant was OK, the food not as good as before and although the restaurant was virtually empty it took a while to be seated even though a table had been booked. Perhaps just a bad day....
