I've stayed at the Derbyshire previously and it's a lovely hotel, excellent service, lovely rooms, great food and free parking. A bit more expensive than premier inn but well worth it. Delicious buffet breakfast and I also had room service which was very nice although they do charge an extra £5 for that.

We have to make a special mention to a lady called Kelly who works behind the scenes in booking reservations,we should have been there 2 weeks previously but our car broke...

I booked a hotel to break my journey with my son up to Durham. Well, when we arrived there was a wedding party at the hotel, and that is when you discover that the room doors, although they look substantial aren't exactly noise proof. Secondly, you hear the M1. The major hiccup was us being given a double room although...

My husband and myself stayed overnight after a reunion elsewhere. We have used this hotel on several occasions. Initially there was a slight problem with our room. I must say they could not do enough to rectify and move us to another room. They even helped with our luggage. Later we were a given a small gift and a card...

My wife booked The Derbyshire through Travelzoo at a amazing rate for two, including dinner bed and breakfast. I had read some of the wide ranging reviews on TripAdvisor and was expecting to be able to tease about the cheapness of the rate, "you get what you pay for" and amplify some of the stranger comments found on this website...
