Stayed here a few times now and have always found this to be clean and reasonable, had room service and the food has always been good quality. Able to leave car in car park and catch a taxi in to town centre, no more than £5 which is cheaper than paying for parking all day, i would recommend this hotel, single woman business traveller

My wife, myself and three other couples stayed at the International for New Years Eve having booked the New Years Eve celebration package.
On arrival we were promptly dealt with and even given the same rooms we had when we previously stayed here for the New Years Eve event two years previously. The room was comfortable and adequate and a very nice complimentary bottle of Champagne was in the room to welcome us.
The New Years event was a great night, an excellent live singer (unfortunately can't remember his name but I think he is a regular at the hotel), the food was first class and of real quality and presentation, and the specific table requests of our friends that booked it were catered for.
In the morning the breakfast was superb and as good as I have had in any hotel, and all of the staff we met very pleasant and helpful.

I booked the New Year package for a party of 8 and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, the dinner was excellent and so was the party that followed. Breakfast was as good if not better than in the majority of 4/5 star hotels that I've stayed in. I would certainly come again and I especially would like to thank Christine for all her help in making it a brilliant stay for us all.

Ok, so it's becoming a habit sending in our review team to hotels to check them for all our followers and website partners. We followed this up online from a mixed review on Trip-Advisor and can say we are shocked to find most of the reviews are from the what seems to be the past.

This hotel is certainly one we would recommend for a short stay and we must stress that is has had some and is currently undergoing a renovation to improve it further. (If our room was anything to go by is going to be a nice 3* hotel) Suitable and welcoming for business users and families alike.

We checked into the hotel in the late afternoon and were given one of the 'New' rooms with a key card instead of a key despite not requesting a new room as we are aware not the whole hotel has been completed yet. The room was modern and very cozy although lacks character and individuality and maybe a few throw pillows and some bed colour.

The room was a little cold when we got there maybe put the heating on ready for the guest and close the windows...?
The rooms need hairdryers as there seems to be none which is slightly disappointing and it only has two ironing boards so it's a case of wait and see if you can get one which is a little bit disappointing to say the least.

The pictures on the website are different from the rooms however they are all done to the same standard from what we hear which is an improvement and we did like our room!

The Hotel also has it's own restaurant and bar in which you can taste somebar food and chef's specials for around £8.00pp and 3 course meals for £14 or just have a drink in the lounge if you want. We didn't eat at the hotel as we'd ate before however did get a few drinks. We didn't think it was the cheapest hotel we have been to but what hotel is cheap for drinks these days? Not an issue.

The reception staff were smart and very friendly which was good to see and the reception area very clean, The bar staff were prompt and friendly which made the evening a fun one with the service being great. There was also FREE WIFI available in the entire hotel but we didn't use it it's just good to see for business users alike.

The hotel isn't that far from the city center although it looks like it's miles to walk it's only ten/fifteen minutes away from the main shopping center Westfield!
It has it's own car-park which is looking very tired but not the worst carpark we have ever seen! From what we were told the parking is secure, private and monitored regularly by reception and I also saw one guy cleaning it which is good news!! There are also good transport links and taxi affiliation for the city so getting around is fantastic!

Overall we would recommend this hotel for people who need links to Derby in a convenient location close to Derby Royal Hospital and the City Center. This hotel fits the needs of business users.

Room Tip: Ask for a new room on booking. Call up direct to get a better deal... Ask to match online prices as...

We arrived at the Hotel at 2pm to be told we had suites offsite just at the side of the Hotel, i thought sounds promising,what a shock they weren't ready to say the were dated was an understatment we all thought we were in a 1970's film,the suites lol were dirty in disrepair as soon as we saw them we decided this was not the place for us,we found other accomadation nearer to the centre,we went back to see if they cleaned them up ant better well i must have high standards and these suites lol were no better also the outside lighting was broken we couldnt even see to open the door, went to reception to say we were checking out as the rooms were terrible also we had asked for two twin rooms we got a room with 1 double bed and 1 single ? this is classed as a twin? as you can read i would not recommend a stay here you would be waiting for someone to jump out of the shower,

Room Tip: not at this hotel dont be fooled by the pictures

Dear Guest,

Thankyou for your feedback.

I am very disappointed to hear that you were not happy with your stay at the International Hotel. It is unfortunate that you were not happy with the rooms provided. These suites are actually a lot larger then the ones within the main hotel and as there were two of you sharing the room we thought they would be better suited. Our reservations manager always takes extra care when allocating rooms to ensure our guests are comfortable throughout there stay with us.

In regards to the housekeeping issues I will of course ensure this gets addressed but our team is very efficient in keeping with the high standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

Once again I am sorry to hear that our hotel did not meet your individual expectations.

Kind Regards

Myself my wife and daughter stayed at the international hotel recently for two nights, we were staying in derby for my mothers funeral . The staff at this hotel were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, the breakfast were the best I've ever had in a hotel , our room was modern with plenty of space and had everything we needed. They made a sad time very enjoyable. When ever I need to stay in derby again I will booking this hotel and recommending it to my friends. The hotel was being refurbished while we were there but this never interfered with our stay. Well done international
