Totally immaculate throughout with all the little toilet that the top hotels used to offer. The owner again went out of her war to ensure our race van could get parked safely and she even served our breakfast an hour earlier so we could attend our Donington qualifying in plenty of time . You couldn't wish for better.

We stayed at the Coach House after our friends wedding. The rooms are very spacious and welcoming, the bed really big & comfortable and even though it's on a main road, it was really quiet The breakfast was freshly cooked, hot & plentiful, cooked by the owner and served by a lovely young girl who couldn't do enough for you...

Delightful place to stay with a welcoming atmosphere. We had a clean and airy room with comfortable bed. Our hostess was very helpful, providing us with advice and literature on where to visit in our ancestry search. Breakfast was substantial and very tasty. The hotel is located right in the center of this pretty town but we had a quiet...

We stayed here for 3 nights and can honestly say, this is the best place we have ever stayed. Beverley is so friendly & welcoming and is always on hand to help in any way she can.

Lovely place to stay for a short break. Very comfortable bed, scrupulously clean, excellent breakfast and very friendly hosts. Only slight negative was the extremely steep staircase to upstairs rooms. Lovely setting in picturesque town with lots of individual shops and peaceful walks. Bus stop outside hotel made travel into Derby very easy

Thank you so much for your kind review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The stairs to 3 of our rooms are steep so if you do have mobility problems just ask me for a ground floor room when you book, I have 3 and it usually isn't a problem. I'm glad that you enjoyed your breakfast, always...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. With only six bedrooms wedding guests often fill them all making the Coach House like a large family home with all the relatives staying. I'm glad you liked the facilities here, and off street parking makes the stay much less complicated, no battling to find a parking space...

We stayed at the Coach House with some of our family. The rooms were very comfortable and the owner was most helpful, particularly in respect of the younger members of the family. The only negative point to be aware of is that some of the rooms are not very well sound proofed and sound travels, but this is probably fairly...

Since January 2015 I've been working in Derby most weeks and stayed in a range of hotels from mainstream to independents.

I wanted a daily commute that allowed me...
