As followers of Derby County we go regularly to Derby and have stayed in most of the hotels in the city center. As soon as the Riverlights opened we knew that we would never go anywhere else. It has the best location for shopping, the iconic market hall, the theatre and Assembly rooms. It overlooks the bus station but there are no fumes and watching the many brightly coloured buses is quite entertaining. The hotel is state of the art and has fantastic views from the top floor. The restaurant is elegant and the food is well prepared but not very busy. The rooms have a flat screen TV, well lit bathroom with big towels, an ironing board, a safe and a fridge to store the award winning George Stafford Black Pudding you can get at the market.
The only thing I would like to see is an ice machine in the foyer or on a specific floor.
Value for money at the weekend is tremendous, but for the occasional midweek fixture I'm afraid we have to look elsewhere.
We stay in Holiday Inns all around the world, we are priority club members and collect the points to convert to air miles, the Riverlights is definitely the choice in Derby.
