We stayed here bank holiday Sunday quite unexpectedly as we actually booked the hampton by hilton just round the corner but made a swift swap to this hotel because we werent impressed with the hilton.
We were greeted very friendly at reception and a room was quickly sorted for us. On the way up to the room I already felt better in this hotel as it had a better vibe throughout it.
On entering our room I was very happy with the size and the ambiance of the room. Our stay was purely to relax, to order room service and unwind in our own company away from our busy lives and this is exactly what we got from the holiday inn.
Our room was no.240 which had a sort of courtyard view so it was perfectly acceptable for our stay as the previous hotel had the noise of the bus station below bursting through the window!
We ordered room service which was very tasty and came in the time the guy said it would and it was warm. My only comment would be that it would be good if they offered sauce with your meal eg ketchup/mayo. Home habbits die hard!
So we had a relaxing night and it felt fairly luxurious considering I wasnt overly impressed with what I saw from derby city centre but theres not much holiday inn can do about that lol.
If I had to return to Derby I would definately stay here but I think we will stick to our usual destinations next time, maybe a holiday inn though after our nice experience here!
P.s. my only critisism would be that it would be good if they had slightly bigger beds but hey im fussy as we have a king at home.
