“First rate experience”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

With friends, we booked just one night, to visit the nearby Kedlestone Hall (National Trust).
Accommodation is superb - fully equipped kichen etc, and 2 ensuite bedrooms in the suite we booked. Very good value - even without the EN SUITE sauna, which was a bonus.
Excellent meal at The Broadway pub just down the road.

Room Tip: the rear of the building backs on to the A38 - very busy, but insulation good. Quieter at front.

Stayed at the birchover with my wife and friends.Got there saturday and the apartment was FANTASTIC.Was shown round and was told how everything worked.The woman was very helpful and asked if we wanted anything else.We asked about town and where to go.She even gave us a number for taxis.The standard of the apartment was wonderful.It had EVERYTHING,washing machine,dishwasher,fridgefreezer,etc...even had iron and ironing board.Cereals and milk,orange juice and even a bottle of bucks fizz.Marvelous.The bedrooms were very big and the main bedroom was OUTSTANDING.The wardrobe unit was like Narnia.It opened to reveal a bathroom with shower,toilet and SAUNA....Heaven..The quality was top notch and we didnt want to leave.We wished we had booked for two nights and will DEFINATElY be back.Had it as a groupon deal and we are hoping it comes up again...Very highly recommended

Greeted with a warm welcome by Chloe who showed us around the apartment. Chloe gave very good instructions. However there are no welcome packs. We were informed this is to be sorted very soon. A welcome pack would be most useful for first time visitors to the area. The apartment is fully equipped with everything one would need. A welcome pack is provided including cleaning materials - although the apartment is clean every day including change of towels. There is a sauna although we didn't use it. the building is situated in between two busy roads. These are busy and can be very noisy when the windows are open. The roads quieten down before/after rush hour. We had trouble connecting to free WIFi but Carl the manager was very patient and sorted out problem to a positive end. There is a very large car park. We would certainly recommend these apartment. This was a stay booked through GROUPON and was an excellent deal!

Our stay in Birchover was seamless - if only there were more like this around the country! During a recent UK holiday, we decided to break our long journey up to Northumberland with a visit to Alton Towers. Derby is the ideal location to stay when heading up the M1 and wanting to make a d-tour westwards, and we discovered Birchover apartments. We stayed two nights and, quite honestly, they were the most convenient way to stay as a family that we've ever tried. Not quite a hotel, with more services in your accommodation than just a room, we do wish there was more like this all over the country for our other UK jaunts. If only!
We would definitely recommend all Mums and Dads to stay here if you are looking for a base in the Derbyshire area. Hard to beat and not the businessy/corporate environment we were fearing.
We have to add aswell - the bathrooms are brilliant, and there is absolutely no road noise at all. Convenience but with the peace and quiet!

One of the best places we have ever stayed. Top quality accommodation. Clean, spacious, comfotable, well equipped - everything you could possibly need. Location was excellent, easy to find, parking no problem. A shame we only spent one night here, but will definately come again.

I would denifatley not recommend this to anyone. We came in a family room which only had a small dining room table with only 3 chairs for 5 of us. The dishwasher in our room was broken, the shower was grimy , the bathroom didn't smell very nice and there was only one bedside table in each room where there was 2 beds.On the up side the sauna is nice and the bed are big enough but it is not luxury and needs a good refurb.

Birchover, General Manager at Birchover Darley Abbey, responded to this review, July 22, 2011
We are very sorry that the guest was not happy with the accommodation. We have started a refurbishment programme on all of our bathrooms as they were getting to a stage where they needed upgrading. This programme is 50% complete and we are committed to completing it as quickly as possible (will try and attach photos if I can work out how to do it!)
The dishwasher has been replaced at the earliest opportunity (we have to wait for suppliers to deliver like anyone else) and we have installed an extra dining chair since this review. If we had been asked for extra seating at the time, we would of course have provided it, but unfortunately we weren't.
We do of course welcome the feedback and thank the guest for bringing these issues to our attention.

We had a Groupon deal so we were looking forward to staying at the apartments at a buget price! Every step of the booking through to the actual stay was faultless. Carl the manager was so helpful...as was the lady who showed us round the apartment when we arrived there.
We decided at last minute to take along friends as we had a 2 bed apartment both with en-suites. Their big bedroom had a bath/shower en-suite while ours had a shower/sauna.That was quite a novelty in itself--my hubby now wants to turn the summer house into one!
The decor was traditional rather than dated as some of the comments in reviews on here stated.
The kitchen was fully kitted out and we didnt need to take anything with us--only dishwasher tablets! Plenty of crockery/cooking utensils etc.
The bedrooms has LOADS of space in the fitted wardrobes,drawers--I could have taken at least another suitcase of clothes with me had I have known! ;-)
The sitting room had a 3 seater leather sofa and an armchair my hubby fell in love with-it was so comfy.
The king size bed was one of the best I have slept in--and I am very fussy about my beds--I always take my own pillow-but didnt use it here as the ones supplied were just great.
The only thing that some people might find a problem is the noise of the traffic on the A38 which runs by ---but the double glazing is excellent and when the windows are closed you dont hear a thing--it certainly didnt bother us!
Its an ideal place to stay as a central loacation--we went to visit friends in Matlock and also went on to Bakewell as well.
The whole complex was spotless clean--it was far better than we expected after reading some of the comments on here--the addition of the breakfast bits and pieces being left in the kitchen was very helpful--we found an Aldi nearby as well to pick up some other food /drinks we wanted too.
The WIFI connection was very good and quick--most useful when you run a business as I do and need to keep in touch with things.
We would definatly return to stay here...we had a wonderful time--take no notice of the negative comments!
