Love this hotel,rooms are nice size,excellent fixtures and fittings,breakfast is superb with lots of choice,we decided to try there restaurant this time and asked at reception could we book a table at roosters bar but was informed just to turn up take a note of our table number and order simples we thought but alas no.We arrived at 7pm to find the place heaving with no tables available and lots of people waiting for a table to become available,we waited around twenty minutes but there were still more people arriving and it was becoming all most a battle to try and grab a table when one did come available.We did go into reception to see if they could get us a table in the other restaurant but we would have had to wait for another hour and a half,the receptionist was very apologetic and understanding and offered even to get us a free shuttle service into derby to a restaurant of our choice but we declined as we don't know the area and could of been waiting even longer.Our main gripe was surely the hotel should try and cater for guests staying at the hotel or inform us that there restauarants get extremely busy at weekends which would of given us the chance to either book there other restaurant the dovecot or eaten elsewhere.We eventually did manage to get a table in roosters and it was certainly worth waiting for and the service excellent but this was an hour and twenty minutes after we had walked in.My recommendations to others would be either go very early or after 9pm you would stand more chance of getting a table in roosters or you have there other restaurant which is far more formal.The hotel offers superb accomadation and the staff could not do more but please don't forget about returning customers from miles away.
