Great location. Close to bus, train and taxi. Mall is right up the street. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Vicky Andrews was so wonderful and helpful at the front desk. Parking was free and rooms were clean.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us, I see you have mentioned the long hours put in by the staff and how upbeat, happy and helpful they still remain. In this industry we have to be very flexible due to the hotel being manned 24hrs a day to ensure our guests needs can be met day and night. Thank you for taking note of this and also mentioning how versatile the staff are in what roles they are able to complete competently.

Nice and handy for the station and only a 10 min walk into town. The front doesn't set you up well but staff friendly and welcoming without being over the top. Room was clean tidy and hot but opened a window and turned off radiator, all sorted. Toilet and shower area bit small but I didn't sleep in there so no problem. I would stay there again but not in a single. Oh yes, two very good pubs only five minutes walk for real ale drinkers

Had a disagreeable impression of the place as I arrived late, in the rain, from the station across the street; I found myself wishing I’d booked at the rather more cheery-looking Hallmark next door. My room was little larger than a closet and looked as if it had last been refurbished in the 1970s—it reminded me of something from a dodgy American motel. My general judgment softened a bit in the morning, when I could see that my room was at least clean-ish and the front desk kindly assisted me with a logistical problem. My impression was that the staff (friendly and hard-working!) were working overtime to make up for the property’s demerits. For the money I will try elsewhere on my next visit to Derby.
