I cannot say enough about this hotel. Wonderful amenities, beautiful location and the staff couldn't be nicer. Mo on the front desk is the best. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The room was clean and well appointed and we never met a staff member that wasn't pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. Location was 5 minutes from the edge of Derby and easy to get around the area from there.
I purchased a virgin experience spa gift for my partner we could choose from a load of different locations we had a look through them and by far this one looked the best. Really impressed with everything although I think paying £149 for a room for the night was a little steep for the sake of the view of the golf course from the bedroom window. We had dinner in the cast iron bar and grill which was lovely and very reasonably priced. We used our spa voucher today which entitled us to a 30 minute back, shoulder & neck massage & a glass of fizz- fantastic! Staff very welcoming and professional, Only down fall the bed I was lay on wasn't very comfortable on my tummy! (It had from what I gather a metal bar where I guess you could fold the bed away underneath the bed that was digging in) All in all was a fantastic stay, apart from when we went to check out... To be told that we had the charge of the room to pay... even though we had payed cash when we checked in. Gentleman behind reception wasn't sure what to do as it clearly hadn't been settled on their system! we assured him that we had paid and he could check the cctv at reception to see us handing over the money! He asked for contact details and sent us on our way! All in all... Lovely hotel & spa, would visit again.
Stayed over the weekend as we came for a very interesting auction in the area. Wonderful old house although our room was in the newer block. Comfortable room, we slept well and enjoyed the breakfast. Professional staff, historic atmosphere made for a lovely time here.
The room was fantastic, extremely comfy bed, great views, lovely coffee making facilities, great shower, huge tv with lots of channels! The gym is excellent with modern equipment, lots of it too. Great pool, /Jacuzzi/Steam Room. Breakfast was excellent! A perfect place to stay. Food and drinks are a bit on the expensive side but we ate out both nights anyway.
Breadsall Priory is the oldest Marriott hotel in the chain. The oldest part dates back to the 13th Century, with substanial modern extensions. There are a few rooms in the Priory but mine was in one of the newer extensions. The room was of a good size, clean, with a large TV but no fridge/mini bar. The bathroom adequate and functional, the shower worked well although a little bit low for me. As usual there was coffee & tea making facilities but just like every other hotel of this type, only 4 tiny "milk" cartons that barely changes the colour of the coffee. Why do they skimp on such a basic necessity? The only down side was where my room was situated, it was a long way from the reception, restaurant & bar. I had to walk through endless winding corridors and walk up and down numerous sets of stairs. If you have mobility issues, it is not easy to get around. The roadway outside also has some steep inclines, so not ideal. Breakfast was you would expect, with a good selection of pastries and cereals, the coffee was good not bitter with a good flavour, I drank the whole pot. There was hot food available, a chef was on hand to cook you an omelette, or eggs of your choosing. Bacon & sausages were good quality and tasty, fresh mushrooms. Dinner at this hotel is more expensive than it warrants. The price of drinks at the bar is also eye wateringly high. A small glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a pint of draught Cidre, cost £12.80. I'm not stingy but it would cost you a lot of money to get even slightly tipsy. Golf courses were very good, The Priory course is the better of the two but the Moreland is entertaining if only for trying to find where the next tee is. On one hole, you have to walk across the front of an adjoining green to get to the next tee, so watch out for incoming balls. I would go back to play the Priory course but would not rush to stay at the hotel again. Staff were faultless, it was clean and well presented but nothing out of the ordinary. Perhaps if you stayed in one of the few Priory rooms it might be different but the standard rooms are not much different to Premier Inns, who have better mattresses.
Positives include: Lovely grounds including golf course The old priory building is very historic dating back to the Middle Ages The gym and swimming facilities are very good All the staff were very friendly and helpful The bed is comfortable It is relatively inexpensive to stay Disadvantages The layout of the hotel is "haphazard" with a long trek up stairs and then down stairs and along long corridors to get from reception to the bedroom The decor in the common areas is dated The bedroom decor is functional rather than tasteful There is no separate shower - it is just over the bath (although as a plus there is a bath)
Parking terrible there was 2 weddings taking place so parking for residents was terrible we ending up parking a long way away from our room due to this. Some of the staff seemed to be having a bad day when delivering our room service however the other staff was lovely. Breakfast was ok. The room was ok as there was stains on the curtains but the bed was comfy overall disappointed
We stayed a night in a junior suite on Friday 9th September - we were checked in promptly and smoothly. Concierge Tony was friendly and courteous and helped us with our bags. As we were celebrating, I wanted to have a little surprise put in our room whilst we were out. Dean from Conference and Banqueting went out of his way to help me with this and arranged to have a small congratulations plate made and taken to the room.
Superb hotel. Very novel and a great setting. Food is good and staff are friendly. Highly recommended if staying in derby. Good clean rooms and fantastic TV in room. More than I expected from a Marriott.
Super venue, really good meal recently on the August 2 dine for £59, food very nice, service really good. A couple of really small points would allow us to award excellent! 1) No table cloth, small thing, but it was needed. 2) Dress code; smart casual stated on site, so we dressed accordingly, but many others in shorts, flip flops and v. casual..... if you state it you need to enforce it! We enjoyed it, but food and service not as good as Darleys, Saracens Head or Three Horse Shoes.....it could be exceptional, but need to try a little harder!
