Pros: I liked the dining room and the service.
Cons: Decorating and replacing the scuffed and chipped furniture.
Location: Derby has some lovely restaurants nearby the hotel.
Booked for 2 nights. Spent the first night Saturday in room no 21 which has a disabled bathroom with peeling paint on the ceiling and smelt of strong urine which was very unpleasant. After alerting the hotel to the problem of room no 21 spent the second night Sunday in room no 1 which was a nicer room with a cleaner bathroom.

L'emplacement dans le vieux quartier de Derby est très bien. Endroit très calme et à quelques centaines de mètres du centre ville.
