As always, the Derwent represented excellent value for money. My wife and I booked a family break, taking our daughters and their families with us. All had a very good time. We all love the facilities and the entertainment provided. The family rooms were generous in size, the beds clean and comfortable. The bathroom(s) were average, but came with plenty of fresh clean towels, an all over shower gel dispenser and hand soap bars.
Included were tea and coffee making facilities, plus the actual ingredients, replentished during our stay.
I must admit that the route to our rooms with regulation copious amounts of daughter/grandchildren cases and toys was quite time consuming, and at times awkward (due to stairs), but the hotel will provide assistance if requested. As expected, the volume of people/cases traffic does mean the landing/stairway carpeting shows signs of wear and tear.
I will include one other downside, but it is also a positive. On our first full day we did have two false fire alarms, and another later in the week. The downside: one of our grandsons (3 years old) became quite distressed at meal times in case it happened again (first at breakfast, second at dinner time). The positive: better to have an effective fire alarm and procedure, than always assume it's a false alarm and ignore it.
We all always enjoy the choice of food during our stay, and the menu provides a selection to suit all tastes.
Since our first stay many years ago, my wife and I have stayed in all the TLH hotels, plus the Victoria Apartments. We are always pleased with all the TLH hotels, and do not have a preference for any one above the other; but realistically, we have probably stayed in the Derwent more than any of the others
