I stayed for one night on a family visit. I choose a double room as it was not much more than single - well worth it as it was quite spacious. It is an historic building used for conferences - the room had a decent sized desk and speedy wifi. There was a flat screen TV with the usual free... More

Had to attend a 4 day training seminar. At first appearance it looks a little dated, once inside rather impressive!! Great facilities and bedrooms are good. Designed purely for sleep, shower and revision, they serve the purpose. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus were a shock. Not cheap and nasty, however great food and variety as one would expect from... More

A little bit outside the centre of Derby, the conference centre offers a very good, cost effective alternative to staying in a regular hotel. The rooms are functional and clean, the bath room actually rather spacious (with a tiny shower). The breakfast is ok, nothing spectacular but tasty and sufficient variety. Staff is very friendly, bar cosy to finish the... More

Hotel is nice, and the price was good. Bathroom could do with a little update but not a major issue. I Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking to stay in Derby for a night or two. Breakfast was lovely! Definitely include breakfast when booking, as you won't be let down!!

Typical business travel type place. Clean and tidy, good internet connection, the grounds very well manicured. Friendly check-in staff, usual conference facilities. Good food. The only issue was a very hard mattress that doesn't suit all travellers!
