I have been visiting the Derwent for 15 years with my family. I have always had an enjoyable holiday and have recommended it to many people. I almost feel 'at home' when I stay as the warm, friendly atmosphere makes us all feel very welcome, can't wait to stay again.

Yet again my partner and I have had an excellent weekend at the Derwent Hotel. The service and friendliness that we received from staff throughout the hotel was first class and the food was plentiful and very enjoyable. Yes the room may not be the biggest but it was very clean and comfortable. We also thoroughly enjoyed the many facilities available and the entertainment provided ensured that each evening ended on a high note.

As always on arrival we were met with smiles. It's like coming home to an extended family.
Servce was good, no problem too much trouble for the staff, even very polite to a rubbish guest who was throwing his teddy in the corner about getting stuck in a lift, ... but he's a serial winger-Nuff said.. Anyway, food, staff, cleanliness, attention to detail all marvellous.
We'll be back soon.

we stayed at the derwent for my husbands and my friends birthday! we had a great time we were to young couples which had great time! the food was excelent and could not fault it at all and great service! we stayed on a dbb basis which wen then did drink inclusive too which was a promo for that weekend! brilliant if the offer is on !
the rooms are clean but small and the bed was a little hard, however we were lucky as our friends stayed in a room with a hole in there bed , but as we only dtayed 2 nights we decided to just leave it! that is the only negative thing i could say!
the swimming pool and sauna/steam room was fab both pools are lovely and the jacuzzi was ace!
the hotel is only 10mins from beach and sea front and 15min walk into town at most!
overall we enjoyed the break and would go back again!

We went on a coach trip for Christmas. On arrival we found we had a bedroom which had a wash basin in it, and the toilet and bath were in a separate room. We asked if we could change rooms and were given a much more up to date bed- room with a new shower, wash hand basin and toilet all together, in the adjoining room. This was really our only complaint apart from the fact the entertainment could have been a little better in the evenings. The management of this hotel went out of their way to make everyone welcome, we got sweets in the room, a Christmas card from Jason the Manager and a present from Santa. The food was superb, so a big thank-you to Andy the chef, what an enormous task catering for so many people and getting it right every time. There are four hotels in this complex all with a very different feel and it was great to be able to just walk from one to the other without having to go outside. Lovely to talk to Chris Jackson who shared our love of line dancing and to meet some very nice people. We will be back!!

Went to the Derwent Hotel to celebrate New Year. Really enjoyed the 4 day break. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and the entertainment team worked extremely hard to ensure that a good time was had by all. The room, and bathroom, although not huge, were cosy and warm. This we appreciated as the weather outside was very cold. We are definately hoping to make a return visit.
