Stayed here for one night from entering the building to leaving the following morning we found everyone so helpful and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble. A well located place to stay with the shopping centre across the road and plenty of places to eat and drink if you want to.

Went for a trip out with friends and they booked Holiday Inn. I have stayed in these type of hotels before and they are lovely. Get what you need for a good price. This one however blew me away!!! The quality of everything is so much more than I expected... I felt like I was in a top London hotel!!...

It is at an excellent location with the shopping mall directly opposite you and the bus station being 1-minute walk away. It is also adjacent to a casino which offers great fun in the evenings. Also, there is a gym on 2nd floor!

Always used to stay at the Holiday Inn Express near Pride Park, but this was the same price so thought I would give it a go. First things first - it does not have a car park so you do have to park in the nearby Intu Derby Shopping Centre Car Park. It's only a short walk and right next...

Overall I was very very impressed with this hotel. I booked an Executive Double Room and was pleasantly surprised with the room! The hotel is very clean, strange layout but not a problem! Bit of a maze to get to the room, this hotel is bigger than it looks! The bar is nice and spread out and we got 2-4-1...

Stayed here for just one night and its nice and shiny new the rooms are your usual layout, just what you expect from Premier Inn. Just make sure you pick the right one as there are two close to each other. Good location for bars and restaurants in the city centre.

We have stayed here twice, when having a night out in the city centre - very pleased!! Professional and efficient customer service on arrival. Room was modern and clean with all the usual facilities, with extras such as iron board, access to mini gym. Beds were very comfortable and I found the room location to be quiet, with no noise,...

Hotel was clean and modern. Breakfast was alright and of typical English style breakfast. Would be better if there were more variety. Was given the reduced mobility room which had a Twin bed and the toilet seat cannot be lifted up due to the back rest. Shower cubicle only separated by the shower curtain and water can still flow out...
