Working at nearby Derby County FC this turned out to be a great location to stay as close and it serves better breakfast than many a hotel I've stayed in over the years. The rooms were exactly what you want when working away.

Stayed Saturday night, pleasant welcome. Immaculate room, lovely bathroom, comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast. Better than some 4* hotels we have stayed in. Would definitely stop here on next visit to Derby.

Lovely staff - clean tidy rooms with good facilities. Bathroom was nice too. Breakfast was excellent considering the good value. We had coffee, juice, cereal and full English. The location is good too. For the price I cannot fault it.

We had a family reunion and booked 3 rooms. The single room was great: the two doubles were slightly smaller than hoped for but overall we all enjoyed our stay and would go there again.

We booked this hotel and the same day that we stayed, paying £53 for a small double room and breakfast. The room was small and I think we got one of the only rooms that have not been recently refurbished. The wet room type shower was clean, but really needs to be updated. We had a towel missing, but we...

This hotel has clearly spent lots of money on a recent renovation. The rooms despite being on the smaller size are pleasant to stay in due to the appealing decor and comfort of the furniture. The hotel looks old from the outside but this is not the case inside. The hotel serves an excellent breakfast of a buffet style. The...

Decent, clean rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff. Have stayed here twice recently, and can't fault it. Definitely good value for money. A very large building that used to be part of Derby's links with the railway industry, but has been converted to a conference centre with accommodation. Some of the rooms are suitable for disabled guests, but if you have...
