I've stayed here a number of times for business trips. It's all very basic & does what you need. Depressing if you end up staying more than a few days. Housekeeping is hit & miss. One thing that does irritate me is the sheets - they don't use fitted sheets (and the material is very rough) so it's very uncomfortable...

We stayed at the Riverlights as part of a Titan Tours Christmas package. Reception and check-in were friendly and efficient, our room had everything we wanted and the housekeeping was good. Breakfast was a comprehensive buffet of hot and cold items, which were constantly replenished. The staff were friendly, though some were very inexperienced and would benefit from training and...

Stayed at the Riverlights Holiday Inn whilst in Derby for a Christmas party. The hotels well situated, very central in Derby. It has basically everything you could ask for in terms of facilities in the hotel and your room. Slept well and enjoyed a nice breakfast the following morning, plus the reduced parking rate for the shopping centre car park...
