Stayed here on Saturday night, after a running event at Loughborough University and with a further race near Matlock on Sunday.
The apartment is just as described on the owner's website. Whilst the decor was not to my taste, it was very comfortable, and had everything you would need for a short stay, or for a longer one. And unlike a hotel room, there was masses of space to be able to relax in, a real luxury.
The one slight downside is traffic noise. The building is very close to the A38, and despite double-glazing, there is some traffic noise. Light sleepers might be troubled by it.
We never saw any of the staff. The reception was unmanned when we arrived, with a note to phone - we were then given instructions as to where to find the key and which apartment was ours. But this was fine by us; it was a simple painless experience, and we knew someone was available on the phone if we needed anything.
We ate at Darleys Restaurant, just a couple of minutes away by car. Good food, although service was a bit amateurish.
