Bedding hadn't been changed on one of the beds and things from a previous guest still in the bathroom

The room was dirty and smelt due to a damp patch on the carpet. Needs a good refurb!

Great central location

The hotel is looking very tired. Old fashioned but not kitsch.. generally ok but could do with a luck of paint. Paper thin walls, and creaky floors, luckily neither of us are light sleepers! The bathroom door didn't lock. The trouser press in the room was out of order, though to be honest, do people still use these?? The water machine and ice dispenser in the hall also out of order. Staff were friendly Breakfast was ok, though not a huge selection, just the usual fryup and limited cereals. I overheard another resident being snapped at by the cook because she'd not ordered vegetarian breakfast the night before! Last point - parking. There is ample space for parking but even the discounted £8 per night seems unreasonable given that the attached restaurant gives customers free parking in the same car park!! We were in Derby to see family and didn't use the restaurant. In summary - it was ok. It had a bed, a kettle, and a shower, which is all we really needed.

You get what you pay for.

My sister and I were in town for a wedding. We arrived quite later for check in and were greeted by a very friendly porter who took us through the normal procedures. Room was very standard and basic. Breakfast was quite disappointing, you can tell the staff are very used to only doing the bare minimum. All in all I wouldn't stay there again.

Best value for money ever

Incredible value. Shared with a mate and it cost me £22.50 a night. Expected grotty, awful hotel which wouldn't have bothered us but it was actually very clean, decent room standard, small extras such as biscuits, shampoo, ice and water in corridors and my favourite blast from the past, a shoe polisher. Really close to station and a reasonable walk to town, we all left with a sore head and a smile! If I could change one thing it would be the heat in the rooms but opening the window soon fixed that.

Great location but needs a right good uplift !

Great location to the train station so if its just somewhere to lay your head for the night its ideal. The staff seemed okay although not very informative. Breakfast seemed like it was there for a week before I had it. Best thing was the boxed cornflakes I'm sad to say. The hotel room itself is in need of some big improvements its old and tired and looks like a cleaned up crime scene from an old Columbo movie.

one night stopover

The hotel is clean and tidy and considering we only stayed one night it provides adequate accommodation to sleep. The rooms are overly hot and although it states fans are available these are on a first come first served basis - the receptionist told us we should have asked for one when we checked in as they had them available then! It would have been cooler to sleep in the corridor.

Great place

Cant fault this hotel, from location to staff all was great. Got it at a bargain price too. Brilliant. Ample free parking and good quality breakfast at a reduced price. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
