“Does 'standard' very well”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Stayed at the Pride Park Holiday Inn express for a fleeting business stop - we got exactly what Holiday Inn Express offers - room was clean and nothing broken - quick breakfast. The location is not the most glamorous (my room looked out over a business park) but then we weren't staying there for the view. Great if you are catching a train, being a short walk to the station

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Holiday Inn Express,Pride Park, Derby following your recent stay .

It was great to read that we met with your expectations and that you enjoyed your short stay at the hotel. I am really pleased to see that you rated our guest room cleanliness and the quality of your sleep highly.

As you have mentioned, The Holiday Inn Express, Derby is a short walk from the mainline train station and we also offer free onsite parking for guests travelling by car.

For business users ,such as yourself, our location is an ideal base for visiting many of the prestige companies in Derby, such as Rolls Royce & Bombardier. We are also situated within walking distance of Derby College and Derby University.

Stayed overnight after watching the football, slightly disappointed, looked rather tired, could do with a makeover, people in the television area eating Indian food which the whole made the area smell terrible, unless you really like this sort of smell.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on your recent stay.
I am sorry to hear that you found the hotel appearance and did not meet your expectations on this occasion. Regarding your comments about the usage of our Great Room area, Holiday Inn Express always allow our guests to fully feel at home and make use of the space available and as we at present cannot offer a dinner menu, we do allow external food to be consumed in this area.
I am pleased however that you found the location of the hotel to be convenient for the football stadium, and hope that you may give us another chance in the future when visiting Pride Park,

Kind Regards

If arriving by train, ensure you exit the back of the station as ticket barriers are present. The station staff were fine with letting us transit through the barriers. The alternative walk is not pleasant as you walk under the elevated road and would be intimidating at night. Derby Council and Railtrack need to install a public footbridge.
The hotel staff are very welcoming and professional.
Some guests seem to quite happy eating their own food on the lounge. Not very appealing if you want to chill out and surf the Internet .
Chiquatas across the road is great fun and has free Internet , unlike the Hotel.
The rooms are great and very comfortable.

I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night, really impressed from start to finish. Convenient location next to the train station. Modern interior, from lobby to room it all feels very high quality for the price. Buffet breakfast will fill you up nicely and all the staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely come again.

We stayed here for one night midweek because our football team was playing Derby County at te very nearby stadium. Hotel was easy to find, and had a good sized car park. Check in very easy, staff clearly well trained and very helpful.

Room very nice, and good to see that having booked as 2 adults plus one child, that the childs (sofa) bed was already made up for our son. Soooo many places canno seem to manage that! Top marks!

Had a pre-match dinner and the very nice Harvester next door, then a very short walk to the ground, knowing there would be no stress about where to park our car.

Miracles do happen, and our team actually won the game, so nice to know that within 10 minutes we were tucked up in our warm clean room for the night.

Everyone staying here gets to have a buffet breafast, which makes it even better value, and even though it isn't as full a breakfast as 'full' holiday inn's, there was plenty for everyone. Only suggestion would be to add bacon to the hot breakfast selection.

Everything about our stay was trouble free, so we will definitely be staying here again for our match next season! Thank you!

Stayed at this hotel to break a trip to / from Sheffield and found it clean, comfortable and friendly. The staff were very helpful and made our stay very plesant. Rooms were the usual HIE afair and were very clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable and the place was generally very quiet. The "free" breakfast was very acceptable and there was plenty of it, with the staff constantly topping up the various breakfast bar stations. There are two restaurants witin a minute walk - a Harvester and a Mexican - and the local pizza place (and no doubt others) deliver as well. Overall a plesant place to stay and would not hesitate to come back.

As you'd expect, this is a no-frills hotel. But super friendly staff, clean rooms, and good value rates mean I'd definitely stay again.

Is a 10 minute walk to Pride Park stadium, and 5 minutes to the train station (back entrance to the station, don't do what I did and go out the main entrance - it's a good 15 minute walk that way round!)
