“Great hotel for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2009

We stayed one night as we travelled down for the Moto GP at Donington. The hotel is around 20 minutes from Donington circuit, which was ideal for us. The rooms were clean and adequate for our stay. The price we felt was excellent especially as other hotels seemed to have increased their prices for the Moto GP event. My partner and I stayed in a double room and our relatives stayed in a family room (2 adults and a 15 year old) and they payed £50 for the room, which was the same as what we paid. I would reccomend this hotel for a short stay in Derby. The Italian restaurant on site was lovely and the atmosphere in the small bar area and the outside area was nice.

We stayed here for one night, at a cost of £40 room only. The hotel and room were both spotlessly clean, service was efficient and friendly, and the car park adequate. The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the station and about 10 minutes from the centre of the City.

On the plus side, the Italian restaurant on site appeared to be okay, though the menu appeared to owe more to Pizza Hut than a proper Italian. there are however a range of restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, including 4 Indians, a Chinese, a Spanish, a Mexican and a Greek, as well as pubs and a much larger number of eateries in the City itself, thus adequate choice is available.

On the down side, I found the beds very hard, and the "power shower" both little more than a weak trickle and lukewarm at best. Doubtless we were unlucky in this, and given the price and the fitments - large flat screen TV, tea/ coffee facilities, etc - one should not complain.

This is not a hotel for a special treat - though neither is Derby itself - but as a place to lay one's head for a night or two, it is perfectly adequate, and price wise, very good value. We will stay again.

This is great little hotel for a short stay in Derby. Very near the Train station and walking distance of the Westfield shopping centre. Continental breakfast was included in our deal. The rooms very clean and had flat screen TV. They also had a shower/bath. The room was comfortably warm. This is the second time we have stayed here. It is hands down the best hotel in the vicinity even beating the so called 4 star Stuart Hotel around the corner.

  • Liked — price, location
  • Disliked — during the Xmas period breakfast is only available in your room
