remoteness to the real world
Absolute quiet, beutiful surroundings and the most impressive quality and service I have found in 12 months of business travel aroung the UK
Beautiful accommodation. Friendly staff. Excellent food.
Fabulous location, friendly helpful staff and wonderful rooms. We were upgraded and could not have wanted for more.
The breakfasts were amazing - so different from the offerings of large hotel chains - they were cooked to order, hot and so tasty. The staff who were friendly but not intrusive. The beautiful countryside and the excellent suite I'm a 'townie' I never thought about things like spiders when I booked the hotel - and was taken aback at the size of the one I found in the bathroom - however this is a minor complaint unless you are a 'spider phobic'
Lovely setting, lovely rooms, lovely food, entertaining animals
Set in beautiful surroundings, huge comfy bed, spa bath and sauna in the bathroom, made to feel at home, amazing breakfast.
Very friendly and comfortable with an individual feel and lovely furnishings. Lovely wine and food. Tv did not work very well and the water pressure in the shower was a bit weak.
Fantastic location, very comfortable and luxurious room
Lovely big room, good evening food and good beer. No record of my booking when I arrived but thankfully, they weren't full. My breakfast was very poor. The fried egg was like rubber and had obviously been cooked a while ago and kept warm.
We were given everything we required without any problems whatsoever. All items in the tarrif were freely available. It was warm, comfortable and relaxing. We had stayed previously at the same time of year two years ago and found no difference in service etc. to then. Nothing. Below I have ticked yes to the reviews question but not all are accurate in our minds.
The friendliness of the staff, very helpful and polite. Their was a bit of a smell of grilled food in the ventilation system in the bathroom. There was also a function on somewhere in the Hotel area which was quite noisey.
Very large room, warm and fiendly excellent service
Large room space. Bathroom also roomy and clean.
Clean spacious room, plenty of hot water, good linen and towels, tasty value for money meals in casual dining area and helpful staff. View from room overlooking filling station.
close to town centre was not that luxurious overlooked a petrol station rather noisy, have been in a lot better hotels for cheaper price
Comfy bed, clean (though somewhat sparse) bathroom
The price was excellent! The fact that it's now non-smoking.
Close to home and all inclusive price for bed and breakfast stay, Ideal for last minute getaway. Stayed in the old part and the floor was a bit creaky.
The only black mark against the expereince was the lady receptionist who was on duty upon arrival - she was rude, uninformative about parking arrangements and unprofessional. Also, the car parking arrangements need to be more clearly set out on arrival and / or on their website.
Very clean, with professional, friendly staff. Nice atmosphere, and nice new place. Room had nice full length windows, and was very comfortable. Bar was expensive, but was very relaxing.
The staff were very helpful when I raised the concern below. Other reports on the web site do not mention that the hotel is right next to the Inner Ring Road in Derby. Rather more than half the rooms directly overlook the dual carriageway, so I would suggest that anyone who has difficulty with traffic noise either go elsewhere or ensure that you get a room on the other side of the hotel. I was given a lovely room overlooking the Ring Road, which was quiet late on Sunday when I arrived. After being awoken at 5am by traffic, I asked the staff if I could have a room on the back of the hotel. I was given one without any problem and was happy with the other two nights of my stay. I would also strongly recommend that anyone with a car park it first, then walk 100m to the hotel.
Great location, near to the city centre. Hotel was comfortable and clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. No parking facilities at the hotel. (We used Chapel Street Car Park, a short walk away, across the ring road).
New hotel in good location to amenities
All staff we met: reception, bar and cleaning, were very helpful and polite. None.
No free parking
Good modern hotel, friendly staff. Well located near cathedral.
Good location, very convenient for both the city centre and the park. And the midday check out is very welcome. Being on an island in the middle of Derby's ring road means that it's a bit tricky to drive up to the door, or to turn around if you overshoot. Not a huge problem though, and nothing to put me off booking again.
good bar & restaurant. very central, rooms clean & well furnished the lack of parking is very poor as the underground carpark is closed. there is no drop off parking to allow you to unload cases so you need to drive to the local carpark & struggle back with cases & children
everything was great, staff, room, food, price no complaints
Location All satisfactory
The hotel was ideally situated close to the railway station for the purpose of my visit and for someone who had never been in Derby before.
excellent and helpful staff no
The central location and ease of getting to where I wanted to go.
The Food and Hotel staff, nothing was too much trouble it made the weekend n/a
Bar prices and quite exorbitant charge for breakfast which we chose not to have.
The room was very quiet and comfortable and the staff extremely friendly.
although discounted room rate breakfast was really expensive - 11-50 for continental!
The Hotel was beautiful, clean and modern and I would recommend a stay here to anyone Nothing
Staff helpful and nice but without the forced effect ypu get through training to be nice if you get my meaning. Food excellent. Plus best coffee I've had in a long while came from the barman. Dark room at night Bit pushy on buying bottles of wine with evening meal. Cold shower curtain envelopes you
Nothing ! They forgot the alarm clock + newspaper + Staff at the reception very unfriendly + Too hot in the room because of the heat system, with an AC very noise!
Easy access to town centre, nice bar, clean room think your breakfast price is a bit expensive,hence all three times i have stayed i go to the little cafe next door
It was warm, relaxing and very friendly, loved the hotel and will go back. could not find anything wrong such a pleasant stay thank you.
Free car parking
The location of the hotel is good for visiting the centre of Derby, and the rooms are of a good standard for the price Following a dispute over the night I stayed/booked at the hotel, the resolution to this was completely unsatisfactory.
very central,smart hotel no lift having to struggle up two flights of stairs with cases, finding after a whole night sweating that theirs a fan in the wardrobe.
Very warm hotel, as it was freezing out side. Good parking, as it is in the city centre. Very modern hotel. Tea and coffee cold, as it was in flasks at breakfast, but apart from that it was a good selection of food on offer.
It was lovely and warm
the whole hotel, staff everything made us feel very welcome
The comfortable beds and free parking,all staff appeared happy!
Modern hotel, rooms small, bed not comfortable, staff pleasant, good breakfast. OK for 1 or 2 nights
Good facilities, clean and comfortable, good value. Could not alter heating in room as control appeared to be fixed; it was so hot it gave me a sore throat. I opened window but then had 24hr noise from railway station, although this was not a problem as managed to sleep through. Hotel situated in a very large business park/area with building work ongoing; got lost a couple of times. No signposts showing hotels.
Well appointed funky hotel and room with everything needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast good Staff friendly and helpful Outlook a bit grim at the moment as building work in grounds continues
Location was excellent for our needs as it was a 2 minute walk from the train station. Very clean and modern hotel with friendly staff. Stayed in a twin room and the mattresses were very hard which did not allow for a very comfortable sleep.
Excellent clean facilities. Good in room entertainment. None
It was convenient for the train station and the Pride Park Football Ground and had all the essentials for a short break. The view from the room was of waste ground. We didn't get many towels (one hand and one bath towel for two people).
Clean and tidy.Dinner in the restuarant was good
This is a new and smart hotel with a cheerful and enthusiastic reception staff. It is very convenient to the city centre and very close to the station. There is a generous car parking area and the access from the a52 and the city are very easy. Some of the room facilities were basic - no bath - no hook to hang a towel or coat in the ensuite. Tap on the basin did not overlap the basin fully so tended to spread water over the adjacent surface. Early morning noise from the trains marshalled overnight in the adjacent sidings (motors started at 0500hrs)might disturb a very light sleeper.
The rooms were very good modern and of a high standerd of finish. good that free onsite parking was available.
The room was really nice and clean. The location so close to Pride Park was great as the reason for the nights stay was to tie in with the game.
nothing it was dierty !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Distance to event at Donington Race Circuit Pool was closed, which was one of the reasons we chose the hotel
Close to the airport The price was extortion.
very comfortable, friendly environment, from which to enjoy the onward journey refreshed and rested.
This was a comfortable relaxed stop off overnight before a flight. I had a small hot snack in the bar at 1000pm which was welcome but I would have wished the standard of the fish cake to be a bit higher.
atmosphere kids running up and down hallway at 4-30am
Only stayed a few hours due to late flight so really can't comment
Ideak location for airport
Extremely comfortable bed and close proximity to the airport very expensive drinks
It was convenient to the airport Nothing
Room was very hot and no light coverings were provided for the bed. Also the a/c units below the bedroom window were noisy at night
Large rooms with good ensuite bathroom. Good breakfast served in dining area that was very pleasant. Hotel quiet at night ; all in all a very pleasant short break. I would definitely stay again. Nothing
Because we were on a room only basis we enjoyed the option of paying for either a full English or a continental breakfast. A change of some items on the menu each evening would have been preferable.
All aspects of the booking process and the stay were excellent. Staff were attentive, facilities were first class, the room was comfortable and spacious. Brand new towels, great views, seating & bedding also first class. B&B price via booking.com could not be beaten.
comfort No Gym or Pool
We were made very welcome and enjoyed the hotel which had plenty of character. The location was easy to find and suited the reason for our trip. The hotel has beautiful grounds and comfortable bar and lounge areas. We had dinner one night and were not very impressed with home made soup, we also overheard other diners complaining about the standard of their meals.We think this may be a one off/due to personal taste.
we have stayed before, it was quite, the food was great and set in beautiful grounds.
Really good breakfast!
countryside and grounds Daily newspapers and other minor expenses should have been stated upon check-in. Lack of internet facilities was stated already
Very close to the train station and very quiet.
Hotel was well placed for the station and for the southern side of the city. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Room was a little tired; the bathroom light had no cover (bare bulb), the shower control didn't work properly and the wifi wasn't working properly during my stay (management apologised, but that is little consolation). Also, room rate advertised on the hotel entrance was less than I paid, and colleagues staying at other (newer) local hotels of similar rating were paying lower rates than I did. The reception area was pokey and not suitable for meeting a client in the morning (a busy and public area) and the bar area was not available for this use as breakfast was ongoing. Having client meetings in a (used) bedroom is not terribly professional, but there was no alternative.
The hotels location was good for the city and bars plus food. The staff where polite and welcoming. The hotel was very clean.
Very convenient location since close to rail station and town centre so excellent for theatre and shopping. Clean and tidy room with easily enough space for 2. I know it was only a basic room but missed some of the things you take for granted in other hotels such as a clock and tissues. Only a very minor point and not bad if that's all I can complain about...!!
good room and reasonable price
Prices for breakfast. reception staff hide behind desk. although unocupied reception staff did not meet & greet or speek when one passed. Lift painfully slow. Smell of paint on 1st floor. Smell of drains on approch to hotel (restaraunt side). Noise from restaraunt entrance next door. Only 3 milk and 3 coffee for 2 people over 3 days?
Position ideal for those travelling by rail, with adequate parking for car travellers. breakfasts excellent value.
The ice maker at the end of the corridor Dust in my room
the hotel was very clean and modern perfectly place for the city and shopping areas
Pool area was superb Nothing
good location for the family visit the bed was too hard!
The dinner at the hotel was excellent and the wait staff were more than accommodating – they helped make the evening very enjoyable. Really nothing to complain about. It is a very nice hotel and provided us with a great base.
The meals at this hotel were excellent Our room had a night storage heater and was very cold. We had to request an extra heater which they promptly brought to our room. During the night we could hear every 2 mins. a fan going off from one of the balconies outside so didn't get any sleep. We therefore curtailed our stay to only one night
Generally a nice hotel with a good atmosphere and facilities French Onion Soup
The rooms are comfortable and well kept.
The food was outstanding, the pool and jacuzzi relaxing and staff could not do enough for you, and with a genuine smile always.
Staff were very helpful. I requested if we could just have soup in the restaurant at lunch time when they were setting up for the evening and we were able to, which was nicer than sitting in the open area.
The rooms are comfortable with nice furnishings. Excellent breakfast and restaurant.
Very little. Reception, pool reception and restaurant recpetion were untidy and a mess of bits of paper. Pool chaging area was littered with janitor's equipment and materials. £144 for a dbl bed boxroom is ridiculous. That this is a 4* hotel is incredible.
Very good hotel, better than you would expect for the price. Good breakfast on the morning, good quality beds, staff very good... Overall can't fault Room we stayed in was under the stairs so did get a bit of noise, ear plugs sorted this minor problem though
Good location with car park. Clean and comfortable room Nothing
Very plesant nice staff good hotel , will stay again
An extremely clean and comfortable hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. we felt that we got veryy good value.
nice and quiet the night reception had a terrible attitude problem
The stairs were very dirty, they had obviously not been cleaned for several days.
The hotel was easily found and was warm and friendly the services offered were very good and the standard iof housekeeping were very good, night porter was very helpful on leaving Nothing found to need improvement.
Nothing Shower did not work. In room Broadband was NA.
only the breakfast was ok. our booking was messed up (someone couldn't read instructions from web booking). we did not get the correct rooms (one bed short) and one room stank of smoke.
The hotel rooms are clean, hotel staff are friendly and the breakfast is great. Some of the hotel rooms are still being renovated so they aren't all of the same standard.
Friendly staff, clean rooms
Good sized family room Family room requested via online booking - this request not passed to hotel. Luckily, staff available to configure room on our arrival.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and courteous. We dined at the restaurant and although the food was average again the staff were most helpul.
Price included parking and free transfer to airport
Courteous staff Inability to provide a babysitter despite advertising this service on the hotel information leaflet.
All you need is available. Very good employee! Extraordinary good shuttle! Thank you very much for service! Directly at the highway
A comfortable bed after a weekend of camping at the Download Festival. N/A
the bar and cafe area are nice and relaxing the beds are really uncomfortable, i must have woke up 4-5 times during the night.
Convenience and quality of service
Even though it snowed and the heating broke down the staff were very helpful and as the dining room was freezing breakfast was complimentary It was unfortunate the public areas were very cold
not a lot room smelt of smoke
the location was easy to find and easy to get to Derby city centre..It was my second stay and I will be returning. liked it all
Perfect for a Business stay. Good value for money. The staff can't do enough for you. Mattress wasnt great
Clean, crisp, exactly what it says on the tin, no frills good value, would definitely stay there again.
A very Interesting & Unique Environment There was a conference for delegates happening at the time of my visit and a few of them were stood at the front doors smoking (dont have a problem with this!) and were spitting, which I do have a problem with!
Staff friendly & clean well equipted room no complaints
My single room was of the quality I expected (upon arrival), for the price paid. The advertised freeview TV was unobtainable, however, I did not raise the issue with reception, due to a meeting elswhere on the evening of my stay. When preparing to leave my room, I noticed stains and damage to both pillow cases.(Unacceptable at any accommodation). The public areas were in dire need of refurbishment. The hotel bar was of a standard similar to hostel accommodation, with damaged light fittings, delapidated shelving and a filthy carpet running fully through the lounge area.
Good location, friendly staff, clean, beautiful building Double bed was extremely small, no frigde in the room
Cheap (Double)room too small
Was contacted just before my stay to confirm the booking and was offered packed lunches for the event I was attending. Was made to feel very welcome upon arrival and at all stages during my stay. Nice room, compact but well laid out and with good facilities. Lovely building and grounds. Secure parking. Great breakfast. Packed lunch was lovely and the supporting information on the event I was attending was very welcome. No bad points as such, if I was picky I'd have liked a more powerful shower but that's being really picky!
Very pleasent building quite, rooms were very clean and adequate for overnight stop. Booked a double room but was given a single! Changed with no fuss but double bed a bit small for 2 people, hence spent most of the night not trying to fall out rather than sleeping.
