The Derbyshire Derby
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in South Normanton
Reviewed 7 August 2017

This hotel has a good restaurant with reasonable restaurant prices albeit the menu is slightly limited. The quality of food is good including the breakfast. The rooms are very reasonably priced, with £85 for an upgrade including bath-robes, slippers, water etc. and including a full breakfast for both guests as well as the ability to cancel is travel plans require it.The swimming pool is small(ish) but adequate. McArthur Glen shopping complex is within easy reach as are other attractions such as Royal Crown Derby factory, Denby factory etc. The hotel sits near the M1 and the A38 so is a good 'stop over' for travellers. Overall, good value for the money.

Room Tip: The upgrade is well worth it in our opinion

We decided at the last minute to avoid Friday traffic and go up to Nottingham a day early. Booking at the hotel was easy and a good price. Having checked some reviews they were not great but we were only staying one night.
Given some of the recent reviews we were really pleasantly surprised as we had an excellent stay. The room was not large but was well appointed and the shower was really good. Very large towels are also welcome. The room was warm but we opened the window and got the temperature down. We had dinner included and the food was of very good quality, well prepared, cooked and presented. The staff were all friendly and welcoming so a really good experience. This continued at Breakfast where again there was excellent choice and the food was hot and because of demand, freshly cooked. Altogether we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Perhaps go for a room not on the ground floor

I was concerned after reading recent reviews, however, I was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms whilst not the height of fashion are very clean and comfortable. We were there on a Travelzoo deal which included dinner and again very pleasantly surprised. The food was of good quality and the service excellent. The service throughout the hotel was very good. We asked for an early check-in which the staff went out of their way to accommodate.

I guess everyones expectations are different, we thought the hotel was very good value and would most definitely stay again.

Very clean and well maintained hotel. Very comfortable and excellent staff. The spa is really nice with a pool. Food was superb though bar and drink prices are rather high. We were on a travelzoo break which was excellent value for money. Would recommend this hotel as only few minutes to tourist attractions such as National Tram Museum 15 minutes drive away.
