This was a business trip and although I am very familiar with the area and the Holiday Inn Express product this hotel still exceeded my expectations.
Lovely refurbishment of the new look rooms
and very helpful staff. I wanted a room switch and they were so prompt and pleasant in handling my "would it be possible post" - the room was not correct due to the usual incompetence of the corporate supplier.
The hotel is in a business park but a quick 5 minute/slow 10 minute level walk from Derby Station if you come out the Pride Park exit. The hotel is well geared to the business traveller and I was very happy as a single female guest with the visit.
Opposite the hotel is a Harvester and a Chiquitos, because of business hospitality I only had breakfast in the hotel (the usual HIX offerings) which was adequate as ever. [Less]
