I booked one night at this lovely hotel for my birthday for me and my husband. The booking process was easy and I had a couple of questions before we visited that were answered quickly by Ryan. He couldn't have been more helpful. We only stayed one night but it was perfect. I thought a lovely touch was one of the staff bringing up a lovely piece of chocolate cake to the room, a lovely birthday surprise. The room was perfect in the pavilion with gorgeous views of the golf course. We couldn't have wished for better. We tried the swimming pool, sauna and steam room near the main building. Everything was accessible and you didn't have to come out of the building at all. The breakfast was simply perfect the next morning with a wide variety of menu items and the staff were very attentive. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Will highly recommend to others and will book to come again for my husband's birthday in July.

We stayed here to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary and what a complete let down it was :(. After booking I tried multiple times through their website, the link, ringing the salon (which didn't get answered) and then the main reception to book a massage for my husband an i. I finally spoke to a lady the evening before our stay of which she said she would ring me in the morning to get us booked in however she didn't ring and so I was then really annoyed and feeling apprehensive about our stay as I didn't understand why it was so difficult to book a simple service! If I hadn't have paid when booking I would have cancelled and gone else where as I personally don't think this is a very good first impression! However thanks to this we didn't leave our dingy, out dated room (with holes in the sheets) until breakfast which I must say was very nice as was the room service we ordered, but for me our experience was ruined before we even arrived and was a complete waste of money and definetly not worth the price! Not the nice special anniversary that we had hoped for!

My wife and I chose to stay at Breadsall Priory for part of a weekend break. I liked the fact that there was an on-site spa, gym and swimming pool - it gave me the chance to treat my wife to a little pampering session while I took a little exercise in the well-appointed gym. I'd read a number of reviews on this web-site before visiting, so was aware of a few of the hotel's shortcomings. I'm happy to say that we had a lovely time and enjoyed our visit. Yes, the pool, sauna and whirlpool bath were busy; it was a Saturday though and it wasn't bad. Yes, the decor in some areas need attention - peeling paint in the pool area for example - but our hotel room was spot on, no complaints. We decided to head into Derby for dinner as didn't want to risk the hotel restaurant, given the reviews. Breakfast was excellent - plenty of options available, from full english buffet, toast and jam, croissants and for the health-conscious there were fruit, yogurt and cereals. A nice touch was the egg chef - so you could have eggs cooked as you liked. The pictures of the hotel are deceptive. Unless you've chosen the top spec rooms you'll be in the rear annex building, where the rooms are well appointed but lots of stairs and no lift/elevator. It's not the stone-built country pad in the pictures, more holiday-inn type rooms.

Having seen this hotel on I thought it looked lovely, also as it is halfway between where my friend lives up north and myself, it seemed a perfect meeting point. On Arrival I could see that the hotel was set in beautiful grounds but on entering the hotel it was clear to see that the property needed some serious updating. The paintwork, carpeting, corridors and lounge rooms need a makeover and some much needed new furniture. Our bedroom was very tired, a new bathroom is needed as are new beds and furniture. The wardrobe and dressing table had large chunks missing from the veneer, the chair was dirty with something splashed up the side of it. The wallpaper is peeling in places and it just has a general feel of being old and sad. The bedding was very clean and fresh, as were the towels. The pillows were lovely and very comfortable. The mattresses however were very worn and not comfortable. The double, double beds were spacious. We went down to look at the pool and spa area's, the pool was full of children the sports bar looked like Wetherspoons on a Saturday night so we came away and retreated to our room. Not quite what I had in mind for my 50th birthday treat. On the plus side,all the staff we came across were really lovely and couldn't do enough to help, The restaurant staff in the evening were great and even turned down the heating as the restaurant was rather hot. Check-in was a breeze, the receptionist was really lovely and a gentleman carried my friends bag to our room for her whilst telling us about the history of the building. Dinner wasn't great but it was okay, the same with breakfast. Better quality yogurt and fruit would have been good but all in all the food was average/okay. We wouldn't stay here again.

Was made to feel very welcome by the reception staff. I was helped to my room by a very helpful gentleman called Tony. The room was warm and vey clean. I had a very nice view of the garden. Pity the weather was not a little better. The room had everything I needed. The map of the hotel was very helpful as it was quite a walk to the restaurant. The food was good. Shame you have not got any cups and saucers, just large mugs! Breakfast was nice with lots of choices. I took advantage of the late checkout, which added greatly to my enjoyment. Would stay again.

Met for family reunion , great location for us travelling from all over England/Wales. The hotel was lovely, staff very attentive , special thanks to Ruth who contacted me before our visit and was there to greet us on arrival. The rooms are spacious and clean and all the facilities are excellent. Would stay here again.

We stayed here spontaneously to break up our journey from the North to South. From the moment we arrived we loved the place! It’s set in beautiful grounds (a princess castle as my daughter called it!) with plenty of parking. On arrival we were greeted by friendly front of house staff, Ruth particularly, who provided a colouring pack for my little girl - a lovely gesture that we haven’t experienced before. Our bedroom was spacious enough for the 3 of us and had a lovely view of some of the grounds and a fountain. We were close to the leisure club - the pool is a good size and reasonably quiet, ideal for my daughter who was in there numerous times during our stay. My partner was impressed with the size of the gym and the high number of equipment compared to other Marriotts we visited. The food during our stay was of high quality. We had room service on the evening which arrived quickly, all fresh and tasty. Breakfast the following morning was lovely, with eggs freshly made to order and a good choice of cooked and continental options which were all topped up regularly. We are pleased we stumbled across the gem and are keen to return later in the year to hopefully explore the hotel grounds more and stay longer at this lovely hotel!

Lovely hotel in rolling golf-buggy grounds close (but not too close) to Derby on the edge of the Peaks. Our room was in the oldest part of the building with high ceilings, sash windows, lovely views of fountains and grounds. Great staff and service, room-service impeccable and a warm, quiet, cosy overnight stay. Would definitely recommend for return visit, maybe for a few holes in summer.

Our 3rd different Marriott stay of January placed us in a polite countryside location in the direct centre of the UK, a useful location if traveling north or south. We arrived in the evening to a well spaced parking lot and were greeted nicely at reception by a young lady who appreciated our gold member rewards level and asked us if we needed any help with bags etc. We were also intrigued by the history of the building which stated on its door, is the worlds oldest Marriott hotel. The history was interesting and a good look of wikipedia gave us a lot of info of the building as a priory. The room we had was an original priory room and it was very old and quaint as youd expect. Squeaky floorboards, the works. It was a nice room and that side of the hotel was very nice. We went to the bar and got two cocktails but the barman had to use a menu so it mustn't be something people order often, how ever I do think the marriott chain needs to sort out a better drinks menu country wide as its lacklustre, mediocre and expensive (A story for another day). The cocktails were tasty and as strong as the hills. Breakfast for being a gold member was tasty!!! Id defiantly come back here as i really unjoined the hotel and grounds, its a very nice area and one id happily visit again.

Stayed here and had dinner on a Saturday night - great customer service both upon check-in and at dinner. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, and all staff were very attentive. Breakfast selection was good too.
