We had the most amazing day / evening on 25 June 2011. Our wedding reception was held in the Pavilion Suite which was just perfect. The balcony was brilliant for our evening guests. It was a warm night so a lot of our guests spent time on the balcony but they were still close enough for us to mingle with and still be able to enjoy the music from the disco.

The wedding breakfast was delicious and so many people commented how lovely all the food was. The evening buffet was also a success and I was even told that it was the best wedding buffet they had ever had. Unfortunately I was still full from the wedding breakfast and didn't get to try any of it.

I would also like to say a special thank you to our MC who was really lovely. He made us feel at ease and spent time talking to us and our guests. He even took the time to walk me over to the hotel - Thank you!!

The hotel was lovely and we were even upgraded to a suite which was a lovely surprise. The bed was huge and I loved the spacious bathroom. The hotel staff were really friendly. The breakfast was delicious and the portion size was generous.

Thank you again for an amazing day!!! Everything ran so smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing.

Bed and bedroom superb. "Double Bed" is 3 pillows wide and so comfortable. The room was really quiet and luxurious. Everything you could want is provided as standard. Loved the fact is was a proper bathroom with a full size bath having a shower over it. The only downside about our stay was when we went down for our breakfast. Our order was taken promptly but then forgotten in the kitchen. We informed a different waitress, after waiting for half an hour, that we hadn't received our breakfast order and she went straight into the kitchen to check for us. She returned and apologised for us having been kept waiting. We received our order after 15 more minutes. We notice that the Hotel is advertising for a Breakfast supervisor so maybe there was a shortage of staff when we ate there.

The beds are 6'6" wide and its good to hear you enjoyed the stay. I am sorry that the breakfast was delayed. We now have a full time supervisor which i hope will help the smooth flow of breakfast service. Our congratulations to you both.

Stayed two nights at the Morley Hayes to attend the wedding of a friends daughter.

The room provided was absolutely superb, spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated and set off with a private balcony overlooking the golf course.

Being principally a golfing centre we had reservations about its facilities for non golfers but were very pleasantly surprised. The first night we dined at Roosters and had very good quality meals at very fair prices. The second night we attended the wedding reception held upstairs in the golfing pavillion - once again the food, service and the ambiance were all spot on.

Our only minor gripe - and it wouldn't affect our overall rating - is that the breakfast area is a little on the small side and clausrophobic when busy. We would imagine that when the hotel is under normal occupancy and not hosting weddings etc, it would be adequate. Once again the quality of the food was excellent.

Throughout our stay the service provided by all the staff was exceptional and made our stay most pleasant.

We intend to return to the hotel for a longer - mid week - break, using it as a base to explore the region later in the year, who knows, we may even take up golf !!.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We are mainly golf based but have a link with Virgin Active gym in Derby. This is a complimentary service with free shuttle to and from the gym available. The breakfast room does get busy following weddings as everyone seems to stay all morning reading the papers and relaxing. We have brought in a few extra tables and have created a great alfresco area. This certainly helps at the busy times.

The Lady Captain has just taken 40 ladies to Morley Hayes Hotel for two days of golf, and without exception did not have one complaint. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, the food was superb, the golf challengling and the staff were polite and courteious, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will certainly be recommending the complex to other golf clubs.

Room Tip: Rooms at back overlooking golf course

Our thanks also to The Lady Captain for organising it to come to Morley Hayes. Golf is a great stay away from home and with a wonderful golf course to play in beautiful Derbyshire nothing nicer.
I have passed on your comments to our chefs for which they are delighted.

27th May 2011 was the best possible wedding a girl could ask for - the hotel looked after all my guests in thier beautiful rooms, and fed them all with the enormous breakfast, The rooms were made available to me early the day before my wedding and i couldnt have asked for any more help. the reception staff were excellent and incredibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast ladies treated me and my daughter like royalty and really did everything i could have asked for. I cant rave enough about this hotel - cant wait for my 1st wedding anniversary - guess where we will be going!
