Holiday Inn Derby - Nottingham M1
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Sandiacre
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Myself, my husband and my 6 month old baby boy stayed here on Friday 21st September for one night. We were attending a wedding reception at nearby Risley Park.

The room was clean, comfortable and considering there was a double bed, single bed and travel cot in there was surprisingly spacious. We were in room 157.

TV was of a good standard, with the usual Freeview channels. Plenty of towels, and tea/coffee making facilities.

There was a wedding on at the hotel, but despite this we didn't hear any noise and had a good nights sleep. The bed was also very comfortable. My little boy also slept well!

The only minus point is that this is not a beautiful hotel- it's purpose built and isn't the most attractive. However, inside is what counts and the service we received from the receptionist was polite, courteous and efficient.

The hotel was also easy to reach from the motorway. All in all, a pleasant one night stay. Would consider using Holiday Inn again.

Room Tip: Room 157 was a nice sized family room, and away from the main area so very peaceful.

I've stayed here about 4 times over the past few years. Sometime in a single sometimes a double room. The only down side the single in the light above the bed it only just clear of you head, if sitting up, just try to remember or get a bump on the head. ! Otherwise its just as good as before, and yes I'm sure I'll stay again.

We booked two rooms at this hotel as we were planning a visit to alton towers, the tickets were included in the price, as was our breakfast. I must say, it was excellent value for money. Beds were comfortable, rooms clean, the power showers are perfect for waking you up for the day and the breakfast was lovely, lots to choose from and good service. We were very happy customers :-) thankyou.

Stayed here with our two kids for two nights as a base to visit Alton Towers. Had a great time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the morning staff were very friendly and took time out to speak to our kids.

We did not eat here in the evening as we did not think the menu to appealing to the children. We instead opted to eat out at a local pub (The Plough) which was just 15 mins walk away. Very family friendly and ate for under £20 pound including drinks.

We had no problems with this hotel and will certainly use it again in the future for our Alton Tower visits.

Recently stayed for a two night break with my family ,check in was very quick and efficient ,rooms were very clean and comfortable.
Staff at breakfast were hardworking and very friendly,taking time out to talk to the kids,only one constructive criticism to have coffee and tea readily available at breakfast instead of waiting for the servers ,they are so busy rushing around that i had to wait for them to come round with the coffee.
Would definitely stay there again

All I wanted on arrival was to fall into bed but there was a problem with the room so having unpacked and settled in there was no option but to call reception to arrange a move. The way in which any problem is handled is a good indication of how the staff are trained and whether the customer truly is valued. It was irritating that I had to test this out but the hotel passed with flying colours.
The building is surrounded by car parking secured by a coded barrier. Frankly, it's ugly on the outside but once inside who cares? It is very well located for anyone travelling north or south on the M1 as it's only a couple of minutes from junction 25 and probably around 15 to 20 minutes from either Derby or Nottingham. Not somewhere I would choose for a romantic weekend but just the place to stay if travelling.
The rooms are fine and as always at Holiday Inns the bed is comfortable which is always my main criterion.
Good points were the attitude and approach of the staff who without exception were efficient and friendly. The hotel is quiet as it's far enough from the motorway that the traffic noise is not intrusive.
Bad points (leaving aside the initial room problem) are the exhorbitant cost of internet connection and the few stairs from reception to the rooms (over the bridge connecting the two buildings. There is a stair lift for wheelchairs).
I have stayed here on several occasions in the past and never had cause for major complaint. I know what to expect and always get it. It's reliable if unexciting.
