My self and my wife spent 2 nights at the Derbyshire. We ate in the restaurant the first night, given the statements they use about chefs being inspired etc, we think sadly some one forgot the tell the chefs they are allowed to show flare and excellence, one example would be the breaded Brie, costing around £7 for 2 pieces...

Booked through Groupon for a great price and could not fault the staff or the place. Lovely pool, sauna and steam room and none were busy. Bath robes, slippers and locker keys were a real bonus. Would visit again!

Stayed here for one night with a voucher from Travelzoo. Upon arrival check-in was quick and we were soon on the way to the room. The double room was good size and clean with a good size bathroom with bath and over bath shower. The television in the room needed retuning as the channels were not as stated. The gym...

Stayed at the hotel in a twin room for 2 nights, A bit remote but ample parking if coming by car, 15 minute cab journey from station if coming by train. Pleasant reception staff on arrival. Room was a standard twin bed, dated but had all the basics needed. Bathroom is very dated and requires modernisation. Breakfast service was efficient...

Have just checked out of The Derbyshire Hotel after a wonderful overnight stay. Amazing value for money through a travelzoo offer. Lovely pool, sauna etc, cosy but nice room and a good restaurant. But the jewel in this hotel's crown is its staff. All were very welcoming and friendly. Alice on reception and the maitre d' on duty in the...

This hotel seems to be fading badly. It was the place to go about 20 years ago but now feels in need of a major revamp. We had a work xmas do here and the food was poor even for a mass catered event. Drinks were very expensive for a venue of this quality.

The Derbyshire is a typical 4* hotel. No surprises, you get what you would expect. Good sized rooms, clean and tidy, good free wifi, ample free parking. Only observation was that there did not seem to be a good supply of hot water. The food in the restaurant was good, but from a limited menu. Breakfast was typical hotel fare...
