Positioned close to the river, cathedral and the fantastic shops and eateries of Derby. Comfortable spacious and well thought out rooms. The staff at reception are always helpful and efficient and seem to be more friendly than in many hotels

We required a one night stopover in Derby to break up a long journey, and the Holiday Inn Derby Riverlights offered it all - a great B&B rate, central location, large room, comfortable bed, friendly staff and great breakfast in the morning. The only minor negative was the strange clicking noise every couple of hours throughout the night, which we...

We stayed here on 10th of March, as a birthday treat, after seeing a band. Reception was really friendly and helpful, the room was great and the buffet breakfast very good value and delicious. There was plenty of choice for vegetarians too. A great weekend made even better by this lovely hotel.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in March. Staff were very friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. Food in the restaurant was good although there was not a great deal of choice for evening meals. Our room was clean however there were a few areas that required 'maintenance'. The wall lamps were loose and looked like...

Stayed here for one night from entering the building to leaving the following morning we found everyone so helpful and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble. A well located place to stay with the shopping centre across the road and plenty of places to eat and drink if you want to.

Went for a trip out with friends and they booked Holiday Inn. I have stayed in these type of hotels before and they are lovely. Get what you need for a good price. This one however blew me away!!! The quality of everything is so much more than I expected... I felt like I was in a top London hotel!!...
