Very basic small room, the shower cubicle felt very aged and was tiny, I was just about able to get in, deco looks dated and in need of modernisation. The grounds were beautiful and I would assume that in summer the grounds would look stunning

This is also a lovely building with a beautifully redecorated lounge area and a great entrance hall. BUT... Don't be fooled by the bedroom & bathroom photos on the website. The vast majority of them are much smaller / less well appointed than those they show you (see my photos) However, if you know what you are getting then the...

Nice art decco hotel with character. Friendly staff and decent food. Rooms are quite small and only have single glazing. At least a half hour walk in to town so need a car or get public transport All in all not bad for the price.

My recommendation’s would be, not to expect too much from this hotel. The best thing it has going for it, is its staff, friendly and efficient. The room we had was very and I mean very small, not very clean and above all, loud, with little sound insulation between ours and the room next door. It is the first time...

We have been visiting Derby for twenty years and have only recently been aware of the accommodation here. The building is a delightful art decor design with a sense of history about it but due to the large sunken main area tends to be a bit cold. The reception area and staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. In fact...
