Good room tv a bit slow to respond but once you get used to it it's ok Nice touch with the toiletries and the comp water they where much appreciated Food was good staff are good couldn't really ask for more especially as my staff was just overnight for a work meeting the next day It ticked all the boxes Cheers

Helped me out with breakfast even though I was late, really hospitable. Top marks for service. Same with reception. Was working nights so requested a quiet room, which they delivered on, really quite position. Restaurant seemed a touch on the pricey side but food delivered was good. Only disappointment is the bed, had to remake it as the very thin bottom sheet that wasn't anywhere near covering the mattress (there's some things you really don't want to be able to see or think about!), no mattress protector, really small quilt and grey white covers - just reminded me of hospital as it was uncomfortably basic - shame really, could've been so much nicer.

Booked for New Year's Eve as we were attending a function at the nearby Roundhouse. Hotel is in a good location with easy road or train access, and has well appointed rooms as well as the welcoming reception/bar/restaurant area. Team very friendly. Only downside is the separate car parking charge which was not expected and therefore a bit of a disappointment. However I would recommend the hotel to others.

Nice hotel, spot on service, nice bar (different but nice), only complaint / concern breakfast...£15 per person...I expected this to be served at this price not self service, coffee machine was broken so had to use sachet of coffee with hot may think petty...but £15 pp....

All staff were really friendly and helpful. I ate in the restaurant in the evening which was really nice and Breakfast the following morning had a huge range of items. I was away on business and needed to relax after a busy day, the room was comfortable and quiet which meant I got a good nights sleep.

Lovely hotel, great room, nice breakfast. Staff were helpful and this was all on new years eve and new years day, all the wedding party were happy with the hotel and service.excellent value for money.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but Penta exceeded it. Room was fab, breakfast was incredible, staff couldn't have done more for us! We would happily recommend PentaHotels to anyone and we look forward to using them again.

Stayed for a couple of nights over New Year and had a great time. The room was very clean and had all facilities that one would need for a short stay, the shower is vey good and the beds are extremely comfortable. This hotel is different and yet still appeals to a wide range of ages, everyone we spoke to seemed to be enjoying their stay. A particular mention must go out to the staff at breakfast on New Years Day who managed to keep everything topped up and fresh despite the hotel being very busy. The hotel is well located and is in walking distance of one of the restaurant areas of Derby (you can walk through the rail station) as well as being the perfect place to stay if going to Pride Park. A fun place to stay with a good fitness area, friendly and efficient staff and a great breakfast.

Having not been to a Pentahotel before, I was expecting a Premier Inn style "functional" hotel. This was much better. We were planning to head into Derby on the first night for some food but due to traffic were late arriving and ate in the hotel instead and I'm glad we did. Food was excellent (same goes for breakfast the day after), as were the drink & cocktail selections. Staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and bar and restaurant area was a good, relaxed space. Location was convenient for the centre (if like me, you forget to pack half the things you need!) and also the train station and football stadium. Nothing negative to say about the hotel, will look out for this chain in other cities and if I'm in Derby again I'll be staying at the Penta. New Years' Day 3pm check out was very welcome too!

The hotel was extremely clean and modern. The staff we friendly and helpful. Checkout on New Year’s Eve Day was 3pm which was brilliant for us it meant we didn’t have to rush to get Home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Derby.
