Stayed at the Derbyshire Hotel with a client, the photos of the rooms are old, and the decor needs updating, the dining experience in the restaurant was POOR, there was a suited gentlemen with a beard, who appeared to be the Manager, yet the young waitresses were running rings round him and they were more interested in chatting than serving...

Nice hotel and a very warm, efficient welcome and check in/out. Some nice touches. The bedroom was clean and comfortable but there was a constant drone from the airconditioning unit even though it wasn't on. The dinner menu was rather basic and overpriced - based on the food we ordered it was very disappointing! Breakfast was better but there is...

Stayed just one night on a travelodge deal. Very welcoming staff, warm and very clean room. Well presented food. Breakfast extremely tasty. Could have stayed longer as the hotel had a nice relaxing atmosphere. The only downside was the price of the drinks - £8 for a glass of wine and £3.50 for a diet coke is excessive.
