Glenn and Nina run the perfect b and b.. super welcome, very clean and the best cooked to order breakfasts ever.. If you want recommendations, draw on their in-depth knowledge of the area and sizeable store of guidebooks and dvds.

We stayed here for a birthday weekend treat away at the start of December. It was close to the location of the concert we were going to see and in easy walking distance of the centre of town for our Christmas shopping trip the next day. Glenn and Nina were very welcoming, making us feel instantly at home. The room...

This was my first stay at Chuckles and it was perfect. Glenn and Nina are lovely hosts and made my stay feel like home from home. They had really good local knowledge on things to see and do and places to eat. Not that I was very hungry for a while after their lovely breakfasts with a range of different...

Super friendly hosts, spotless, a varied and delicious breakfast, and central - what more could you want? Possibly a bigger room but Glenn and Nina have made the best of the space there is. The communal showers and loos look like they are straight out of a contemporary 5* hotel - really lovely. If you are as lucky as we...

Chuckles is a super find. When I first stayed here in January 2016, it was a welcome retreat from a busy business trip, with a first-rate personal greeting from Nina. I've stayed more than four times now and have loved it more with every trip. The breakfasts are incredible, the rooms are super-clean and comfy, and the showers are modern...

We have been coming here regularly and Nina and Glenn are the best host! They are very warm and lovely. They make you feel welcome in Derby. Rooms are great, full of personality, the perfect antidote to a boring hotel room. Also, the breakfast is to die for. I am vegan and they have a great option.

As a touring actor, I have stayed in guesthouses and hotels all over the country and Chuckles is the only one I look forward to returning to. Both Nina and Glen are fantastic, the rooms are great and their breakfast is one of the best I've ever had! Derbys hidden gem.

Great to see you again Gavin, thank you so much for the lovely review. Hope the tour goes well and is a smash hit. All the best from Nina & Glenn.

Chuckles is a little home from home. Glen, the host, couldn't have been more helpful when I arrived. My room, whilst not palatial, is comfortable and well equipped. No ensuite, but the shared facilities are first class. Breakfast was also above expectations. If you are looking for budget accommodation in the very centre of Derby, you won't regret choosing Chuckles.
