“A very comfortable stay”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We spent two nights here for a mini-break, visiting sites in the local area. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The bathroom was fairly small but it was clean and the shower was good and powerful. The food available in the restaurant was pleasant and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient and we would definitely recommend if you are visiting the Nottingham area.

This Holiday Inn is conveniently located near junction 25 of the M1. We checked in late and had to leave early the next morning. However, we had a warm greeting on arrival and a positive exchange with the reception staff on leaving; very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and the rooms comfortable. A convenient location for visiting Nottingham or breaking a journey north or south.

I stayed here in April, 2014, with a few colleagues. I have staye at Holiday Inn at Berlin, and really enjoyed my stay, so I was looking forward to my stay here. The reception staff were excellent, Morwenna in particular. She made me feel welcomed right from the off.
The food was excellent, a really nice piece of steak!! Breakfast wasnt included, and felt that at £10.95, this was a tad expensive, so we had breakfast elsewhere.
The room was clean and adequate for my needs, my only gripe was that WIFI was not included.

I would definately stay here again, and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

Nothing much to complain about in reality; after all its an international chain after all.

What I liked was the location; just off the M1 and no traffic noise. The rooms are (reasonably) well appointed. Plus the fact that they offer a good weekend rate.

What I didn't like so much was the fact that an early breakfast is promised for 7:30am (gets a big tick from me) but although all the usual cold buffet items are available from just before 7:30am the hot food doesn't come out of the kitchen until about 7:45am and you have to take the description 'hot' with a pinch of salt; luke warm is more like it and the fried eggs had already solidified.

I stayed here on the night of Sunday 6th april as I had an early meeting at Derby next morning and did not fancy the long drive up from Poole Dorset , Hotel nice and clean and of a modern design , rooms were nice and the bed very comfortable so I had a good sleep , nice shower too , I had a light dinner which was an angus cheese burger and it came with a few fries and some salad , with a soft drink it came to over £15 , if I was paying I would not eat here , you get the same double cheese burger at Macdonalds for just over a pound , Breakfast was good , plenty of choice . Now this is a hotel where Business people stay and you would think you get free internet so you can check emails and do other business stuff but no its £2.95 an hour and its gets worse and more expensive . sad that they feel the need to charge for this

Room Tip: Rooms from 100 are at the quiet end

Although advertised as the ‘Holiday Inn Derby Nottingham M1’ the hotel is luckily a short distance from the M1 so you do not hear the traffic all night. Outside of the building from the car park is slightly unattractive and having to walk through the outdoor smoking area to get to the front door was unappealing for a non-smoker. Once inside the reception area it gets better; the staff are friendly and seem genuinely interested in their customer service.

The single room was small but fully functional with all the required furniture and tea making facilities. Unwanted cob-webs in the clothes hanging area was the worst thing about the room. Bathroom was fully functional and included toiletries etc.

For the room pricing band I thought the lack of included Wi-Fi was unusual and being expected to fiddle around paying to receive Wi-Fi annoying.

Restaurant provided simple food at a good quality with staff being available but unobtrusive.

Was great to have the car park down a private road with a security barrier.

Overall, a fair hotel with great staff.

Once you've found the hotel (OK, I took the wrong exit from the M1), you find this strange oasis opf calmness and freindliness.
Strange? The entrance, bar, restaurant etc are in one building. The rooms, inluding several meeting rooms, are in another. You don't have to go outside because there's a bridge between buildings. Because the site is on a slope the level 1 rooms are on the level below reception. It's not a hi-rise. There are just the 2 floors. If you are placed in the room furthest away (Room 117, I know, I was there) it is about 200 metres from reception. It is also very quiet, as I suspect, is 217 above it.
The "restaurant", whilst having good tasty and varied meals, is styled more as a decent cafe. Breakfast has a very good and tasty set of alternatives. Nothing exciting, this is a Holiday Inn. But good wholesome grub.
The serving staff at both meals are so very friendly, and assist in helping ensure that you get the meal that you want - well above the normal call of duty.
Reception staff are efficient and friendly. They ask how are, and actually make it look like they care.
I would like the model to be used across the brand.
