As with most holiday inn's this hotel did just the job. Nice size room, nice bathroom and breakfast. Clean as one would expect and in good condition. Good strong shower, quiet environment and near all the amenities. Friendly staff also, and free parking always a bonus.

Have stayed here before. We were booked in with a friendly informative welcome by Liam. Our room was wheelchair accessible so was spacious as was the bathroom, all clean and comfortable. Appreciated the dark,quiet room at night and the breakfast has definitely improved. Wifi available throughout and plenty of parking.

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and in all instances my experience was more or less the same. The hotel is in a business area of Derby, therefore there are almost no useful surroundings, no supermarkets etc. There are three restaurants directly next to the hotel. To access any shops, you must walk about 10 minutes to the other side of the train station. The rooms are comfortable, with nice bedding and decent bathrooms. There are two major downsides however. 1) Connecting rooms - some rooms have interior connecting doors to other rooms. They are of course locked by default, but this causes extreme noise problems. I was able to hear my neighbour's very single breath! Very uncomfortable, I will never stay in this room type again. 2) The rooms do not have central heating/air-con, they are heated by a wall mounted unit. Unfortunately the air conditioner is placed directly above the bed! So the hot/cold air is always blowing directly at you, what terrible space planning. There is free wifi, which is quite good and VPN compatible. The reception staff is nice, they have helped arrange taxis/airport transfers. The rooms are equipped with kettles and some tea/coffee/sugar/creamer. You can always get more at the reception area, where there is also a microwave available. The breakfast is decent but very basic and repetitive, there are no vegetables offered. Overall the hotel is ok, oriented toward business customers. I would recommend it.

Very relaxing overnight stay before our trip to Gullivers Kingdom in Matlock. Great value for the money. Nice, clean room with enough storage, shelfs and hooks. Very comfortable beds, even made up sofa. Nice lobby area with tables, chairs and sofas where we could have some drinks and an oven baked pizza. Breakfast improved, with a good choice of hot food, jams, yoghurts, fruit and bread. Just some guest behaved like they never been in the hotel before pushing for food and putting croissants into the toaster making fire. But it's not the hotels fault. Overall we were very happy with our stay and will definitely visit this place again.

Since last visit which I gave 3 stars, the breakfast has changed and now appears improved overall. There is generally more choice and the orange juice machine has gone. As the breakfast was dropping my rating by a star, I've now moved it to 4 stars. The room quality was as good as ever with working aircon etc.

3rd time staying at this hotel . Clean and tidy and lovely staff. Would like to thank Amy on reception for being happy and smiley when i arrived and also the 2 who were on the following day of my stay but didnt get there names. Will be back again in sept if not before

Good short stay - comfortable bed & clean room. Staff helpful & pleasant. Surprisingly good breakfast for a basic hotel. Very impressed and would certainly stay again if in the area. Near the station with easy access into the town. A Harvester restaurant close & The Engine Shed & other eating places within walking distance

Staff are brilliant and helpful I was greeted with a warm welcome and invited to join their members club giving me points and rewards of free stays around the world. I was given all the information i needed for my stay but I decided to order food from one of the foodie apps and I was offered plates and cutlery for my room. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms are good size with plenty of towels big TV (lots of channels) no bath but strong power shower and clean and uncluttered bathroom. I just wish they had a plug socket by the bed. Weekend breakfast is served from 7am-11am giving you me a chance for a lie in before my days work at the football ground which I'm informed is very close by. I would stay here again if I was working in the area. Staff are at the end of the phone if you need them. Thank you Holiday Inn Express you exceeded my expectations.

Large car park near to restaurants and ideal location for the city centre and attractions. Very helpful and efficient staff. Good self service breakfast. Rooms have recently been updated, clean, bright and quiet.

Chose this hotel as it was close to the centre of the city and the station, where friends were arriving from all corners of the country. Easy to walk to the station then use the bridge to get over the tracks into the city. Breakfast was the usual Express fare which was great given that it gets pretty busy on weekend mornings, no waiting around to be served. Room was just what you'd expect from any HI Express. Plenty of parking available.
