We stayed at the Makeney Hall hotel for 2 nights end of January, the Hotel was lovely and was ideal for a trip into Derby to the Westfield Shopping Centre. Had a meal in the hotel which was excellent value, they did an offer of 2 courses for 2 people with a bottle of wine for £39.95, it was well worth it, we enjoyed it that much we had another on the 2nd evening, a good selection to choose from.
The hotel rooms were clean and tidy and the Drawing Room was a lovely room to relax in, instead of just sitting in your room. The staff were very accommodating and the Gentleman who served us in the restaurant on the 2nd evening was very friendly and I asked him about the history of the building and he was very informative and even went to the trouble of printing off a little leaflet. Gorgeous building, great stay, would definitely stay again
