4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

My friend and I stayed at this hotel from 20-22 March 2012. We found the staff very friendly and eager to make our stay as pleasant and problem free as possible. The double room was a reasonable size and to the front of the hotel. My friend said she could hear the traffic during the night but I sleep quite soundly so did not, I think this was the only negative. Those who sleep light might want to request a room to the rear of the hotel. I found the bed (twin bedded room) comfortable with mattress medium to firm. Spacious bathroom, powerful shower and nice white fluffy towels. A bonus was the free car park which we contiued to use on our last day even after bookinng out. This allowed us to go shopping before leaving Derby. Breakfast was included in the 2 night voucher we had full English breakfast each morning and we had no complaints in terms of quality and quantity. I canot comment on the bar or restaurant for meals as with the hotle being so central we eat out on both evenings. Would we return to Smart Aston Court...yes we would as it gives good value for money paid ad the location is

Room Tip: Room at the rear for lght sleepers. We were in 321 a bit of a walk from the lift and stairs to nego...

We visited on a KGB deal and it was very good value. This hotel is convenient for the railway and bus stations and has a good sized gated car park. The staff were friendly and informative and we enjoyed our English breakfasts. Had an evening meal, with our complimentary bottle of wine, and it was excellent. The hotel is undergoing some refurbishment and has a modern comfortable reception area and lounge. Although our room was of medium size, it was quiet, and cosy. We would return to this very good hotel.

Old hotel, good location near the train station and good resturants. Beds are small and not very comfortable. Ask for a room away from main road to avoid noise disturbance.

stayed 2 nights in march........lovely hotel...staff very helpful/friendly. Initialy given room 202 but very noisy and smelled strongly of 'drains', after telling staff we were immediatly moved to room 208 which was much better but just a bit dated. Ate in restaurant one night which was lovely food. Gym was a let down and the treadmill out of order. Great location....5 mins into Derby centre and the huge shopping complex. Would definatly recommend this hotel and return.

Room Tip: room 208 was less noisy than 202

When we first saw the hotel, we were unsure of what to expect because the outside was mostly brick, but the rest was covered in white rendering, which didn't look good. At the rear is a large secure free car park.
Upon entering the doors at the front of the hotel however, we were suprised to see a bright modern reception area and a beautiful dining room.
The girl on reception was very friendly and knowledgable and she quickly gave us our room number.
Our room was not large but modern and nicely decorated with a large flat screened TV and the usual tea and coffee facilities. The bathroom was modern with a powerful shower!
As we had arrived late in the afternoon we decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant.
It is primarily Italian food, but they do have other options including various steaks and chicken dishes.
I opted for spaghetti bolognaise, and when it arrived I was delighted with it. I usually leave some of the spaghetti, but this dish was absolutely great. Without a doubt the best I have ever tasted.
Breakfast is self service with a wide choice of hot food and cereals, fruits and bread. I think I counted 25 different items. The only thing my wife and I were not happy with was the sausages. They had a strange taste. I should have told the waiter, but the rest of the food was so good I felt I would be nit picking.
There is a free gymnasium on the premises, which was usually empty. Not suprising as most people would be happy just relaxing in the lounge after eating here.
The location is very good, with the railway station being just across the road, and the Westfield Centre about 10 minutes walk away.
We came to this hotel because of a special offer that was on. So we had a lovely time at a bargain price, but we would come here again even if it was at normal prices. We highly recommend the Smart Aston Court Hotel.
