I used to stay at Thornhill Lodge every week as I was commuting to the university. They were very accommodating as I used to have to arrive quite late. I always felt extremely welcome and enjoyed the homemade rock cake on arrival (which became somewhat of a weekly comfort). I stayed in many of the rooms during the months I... More

I stayed at Thornhill Lodge for a few nights at the end of November whilst on a training course at a venue on the west side of Derby and was very satisfied with it. It's a solid Victorian villa (actually 2 houses knocked through) in a residential street close to the hospital and Kingsway shopping area, where there's an M&S... More

I stayed here several times whilst my partner was in Royal Derby Hospital. It is a wonderful, clean, friendly place to stay. My visit was made extremely pleasant by the proprietors. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The full English breakfast was absolutely superb. The rooms are so spacious and clean with beautiful period furniture. I would recommend this... More

My stay at Thornhill Lodge Guest House was simply excellent! My room was nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and the hearty breakfast gave me the strength every morning to explore Derby. It is easy to reach town by bus, and the neighborhoood is quiet - which is very appreciated for the quality of a good night's sleep. I will certainly recommand... More

We come to Derby on business up to 4 times a year. Initially we were booked into one of two generic hotel chains. We then discovered Rae and Geoff's Guest House and have stayed with them since.
