We had a two day break at this hotel to see the city of Derby. Good location close to the railway station, though we used the very convenient hotel carpark situated at the rear of the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff exceedingly friendly. We had a very nice afternoon tea served to us in the lounge and break fast was served in the restaurant and was excellent. Our room was at the front of the hotel and did suffer from some road noise.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the rear of the hotel to avoid traffic noise.

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback on your stay, we are in the process of redecorating all rooms at present, however due to the ground floor having the least rooms, this floor will be completed last. We have completed our top floor and first floor is under way now so it should not be too long before we get on to ground floor. Hopefully if we have the pleasure of welcoming you again, you will notice a huge difference.

Our stay was great from start to finish, the rooms were really nice, beds comfortable and great shower. The staff were so friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent and there was plenty if it. We will certainly be making a return visit, and would recommend it to our friends. Well done Smart Aston.

Room Tip: Have a ground floor if possible, there is a lift but can be a distance from some rooms and there are...

I was desperate to get to Chatsworth House; so when a Groupon voucher came up for £73 for two people for two nights including breakfast and afternoon tea it was a no-brainer.

The hotel itself is a little tired; there was a stain on your carpet in our room, the tea bags were not replenished and the hot buffet breakfast was not quite of hotel standard (we found it a bit sloppy & luke warm). However these were minor details when we had paid so little and we're using the hotel as a base to explore Derbyshire. The staff were fabulous; kind, warm and well informed, always happy to help, they made our stay really special. We played pool in the bar after dinner out on Friday night, which was in a fairly quiet bar.

Chatsworth is gorgeous and we'll worth the bus trip via the transpeak from Derby, changing at Matlock for the 218 bus (at the coop).

Mega bargain and great staff made it a comfortable stay with a nice firm bed, though do take ear plugs and an eye mask as the walls are a bit thin and the people next door were loud.

Thank you to the staff at the Aston Court for a fun and relaxed stay.

We had the most amazing two night stay.
We visited Royal crown Derby, Chatsworth.
Hotel was very clean and welcoming.
The rooms are light and airy, with the usual facilities, coffee, tea, TV .
Breakfasts were lovely, plenty on offer, for all diets.

Tried to find some history on the hotel but unsuccessful. Apparently, the hotel was one end and some sort of manor house at the other with shops in the middle. Over the years, the building has been amalgamated into the hotel that is here now. Stayed for a wedding party and loved the building. The staircase is at the reception end. This is where the wedding photo's are taken. It leads to the landings that are all different levels. We had to go down steps to the bed. Situated right opposite the railway station and a 5 minute walk from the shopping centre. Didn't have a meal here but was impressed with the wedding evening buffet. The suite easily held 150 guests and had a bar. Unfortunately when the couple booked, they didn't know England had their first game on so the disco was playing to itself after midnight. Breakfast was buffet, cooked and continental and had a decent choice.
Our room 208 was well appointed with tea/coffee but was right over the main entrance. With the football, a rock festival down the road, taxi's, station announcements and the beeping of the pedestrian crossing, it was a bit of a noisy night. But that's just one of those things.
Overall, a decent hotel, good sized carpark, good location and nice staff and food.
If you like quirky buildings, this is for you. There is even a resident fox that poses for snaps!

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear may be quieter

I am really pleased you to read you enjoyed your stay with us and that the event you attended was a success, The staircase you mention is a big focal point with our customers, especially our brides as it makes for a wonderful photo opportunity. It is a very old building with a lot of character as you mention. I do hope we get to welcome you again in the future and maybe we will have some more history ourselves on the hotel to update you with.
