good for the price.
in town for an art exhibit, I was staying for just the one night.
the hotel is well presented and was clean and tidy in all public areas. has a nice looking restaurant and cosy bar. also, free parking, but probably its main selling point, other than the price is its position. just south of the city centre it's a very short walk to, pretty much, anywhere in town. derby centre being pretty compact, it's literally 2 or 3 minutes to the main shopping centre, and about 20 minutes to the cathedral at the north end of town.
also, just south of the hotel, if you don't want to go into the centre, there's quite a lot going on too. not readily visible when I arrived in the day, but take a left out the hotel and there' a number of pubs, restaurants, takeaways and corner shops, also selling food and drink, just around the corner.
re my room, it was quite small being a single, but had everything I needed. T/coffee facilities, tv, large wardrobe, a desk with chair and a very comfortable bed. it had a nice bathroom, tiled and of a decent size, with a good shower. both rooms were spotless. it was quite warm on entering, but once the windows were opened it was fine. the only niggle, there was some noise. the door doesn't offer much soundproofing so when people were walking and talking in the corridor it was quite noticeable. this I found just after check in, luckily, that night it was very quiet. however, if there were a situation with late revellers returning after a night out, I could imagine this being a potential problem to lighter sleepers.
overall though a pleasant stay. I was room only so can't speak as to the quality of the food and drink. the staff I did have dealings with though at check in/out, I found to be very friendly and efficient. I would have no problem staying here again if visiting the city in the future. less
