As it was such a good deal on Travelzoo we decided to use it as a base for our house hunt. We were slightly worried as there had been some ghastly reviews but were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee, and toiletries in the room. You could eat in the restaurant by booking a...

On reflection and only after just reading older reviews our stay here (a special birthday treat for my wife )wasn't very good .this hotel learns nothing from past guests problems ie.They Simply don't tell you at reception to book your evening meal when you check in we had the same problem as previous reviews point out ,plus a party and...

We booked a two night stay here via the Travelzoo website. The price was more than reasonable. We were impressed with the decor and helpful reception staff. The food was first class and even though dinner was included in the price the quality and variety on the menu were excellent. We encountered a problem with billing which was promptly rectified...

We stayed as a couple for a Saturday/Sunday night as our boiler had broken down at home and we work locally. We were given a double room on the ground floor, fairly small with very tired furnishings but warm. Room fairly clean but somewhat grubby in the bathroom, the bath panel in particular, and no ventilation for the steam. We...

Booked hotel at Travel zoo after reading about hotel in reviews from trip adviser. We stayed for four nights D.B&B. The hotel is just off the M1 handy for touring the Peak District and Derby-shire. The rooms are adequate and had heating on 24 hours they are a little worn and the bed was too soft for my liking ,...

We went on a room, 2 course dinner & breakfast deal for 2 all in for £69 including use of the pool & spa area. The rooms have everything you need except the fluffy bathrobes featured on their website, these only come with the executive rooms but they did provide us with 2 at no extra charge when I explained...

Made a return visit this time with friends. Took up a fantastic deal with Travelzoo for 1 night b&b stay with 2 course dinner & bottle of wine thrown in. Not a great distance from home & we took in a lovely canal walk at Kiveton Park on the way down (just off J31 on the M1). South Anston nearby...

We had a really good one night break at the Derbyshire and found it to be excellent value for money. We had just a short wait to check in and our room was clean and of a good standard. We enjoyed a bit of time in the pool, sauna and steam room and although the hotel was pretty busy, the...

Check in was awful. The lady on reception (Amy I think) was miserable, barely looked at us, with no eye contact, which was a real let down after our long journey. She did not inform of where anything was, whether we'd stayed before (we hadn't), times for breakfast or dinner or anything useful. Arrived in room, very small for a...

As I said in my previous post couldn't get into this hotel to stay as it was fully booked. Stayed next door at the premier inn.
