“More 3*, Than 4*”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Stayed at this hotel for two nights while visiting the area with my partner. The location is pretty good if visiting Derby and only 30mins drive from The Peak District with plenty to see and do in the local area.

This hotel has FREE onsite parking which is a huge plus. From the outside this hotel reminds me of an old style boarding school with dull brickwork frontage and small single glazed windows. The front lawn on the other hand looks good and inviting.

The main reception desk is not where you'd expect to find it (I.E in the entrance) but can be found in a nearby corridor area. Check-in was quick and simple. The corridors feel very cold, empty and quiet as we hardly ever seen anybody else walking around during our stay.

Our room was rather small and out dated with a walk in bathroom and wet room. Our room was only big enough for one bed side cabinet, a standard double bed, a rather pointless wardrobe and a small table and chair. I did read that all the rooms had been recently refurbished but I'd be interested to know how recently as the room did look outdated. The bathroom was a good size and the wet room area had a decent shower but for some reason they only provided one set of towels for a double room. Luckily the receptionist happily supplied us with extra's on request.

The breakfast was basic but what do you expect when breakfast is included? Also the sunken lounge area was nice.

Overall this budget hotel provided us with everything that we required for a low price so can't really complain.

We stayed here for one night and we will definitely be back. Lovely looking building, clean, comfortable, tasty breakfast and staff were very helpful. Amazing value for money! There was a wedding on and we couldn't use the bar but we weren't bothered about that. The hotel is about 10 - 15 mins walk from the town centre.

This is a very strange hotel which could be lovely but is awful. Old historic building that has been converted in to a hotel but suffers from investment. Room was very noisy next to generator, bar is dirty and feels more like a social club type bar. I am guessing that the owners are just sweating this asset!

Stayed here for the second time in recent months through work and again the hotel didn't disappoint.

The bedrooms are a little small but comfy & with all amenities.

The staff are polite & helpful in particular Gavin, who works on the bistro.

Breakfast was excellent & if you ask the staff will cook your eggs to your liking.

Overall great value for money.

I chose to stay at The Derby Conference Centre because of its central location, specifically to the train station and value for money.

I had an early morning meeting in London so the proximity to the train station made the whole early morning get up more bearable!!!

The room I stayed in was lovely and the hot shower and comfy bed were great - I have no complaints!!!

I checked out the room at 5.45 and whilst there was no breakfast available at this time, I was informed at check-in that alternative arrangements could be made if required - nice touch!

The Derby Conference Centre Hotel is odd. In fact I had to ask if this was a hotel. It's a large Art Deco building, mostly used for conferences and functions. There was a job fair on when I stayed.
The rooms are small and converted from the original spaces- probably offices. But Ok for all that.
The food is awful, but there isn't much choice locally without driving.
I had Salad Nicoise, please don't order it - the kitchen staff are Thai and don't know what it is.
Breakfast is ok.
Most of the clientele use the hotel for the Network Rail training facilities on the site.

Room Tip: You can choose superfast wifi for an extra cost- well worth it.
