Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tensomram47 Always great reception and room prepared for early PC check in.
As a Platinum PC member, this hotel never fails to deliver quality. It is always a pleasure to be greeted by the staff who always seem to know your personal requirements. The central position gives easy access to both the bus and railway stations together with a nearby taxi rank. Westfield shopping centre and the great Eagle market are just across the road from this modern attractive hotel. Always a pleasure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lainey100 Central location
This Holiday Inn is new so rooms are a very good standard. Comfy bed, excellent shower, bath on small side. Food quality was good & plenty to choose from for breakfast. Staff were helpful & friendly in all depts. Only negitative was parking, this is in the multi storey car park near the hotel, but there is a drop off area to unload if required. Will certainly use again as very central for shops & nightlife.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RichardCTO Perfect for the tired business traveller
The HI Derby Riverlights was perfect for what I needed. The room was large, clean and well appointed. It was relatively modern, but still in sync with the northern Englad landscape. Parking is not bad, the internet is free but the breakfast was not. Dinner was top notch.
The bed was good sized for one and was moderately comfortable for one night. Two or three it may have been uncomfortable. The room even had an iron and ironing board. (I really appreciate being able to iron my dress shirts) Service was ok, the restaurant crew were great, the front desk did not seem to excited by my existence, but my heart will go on.
Location was good, heating/cooling was great. It was a little slow to warm up, but it got there. Overall it was a perfect stay for a tired business traveller. I would gladly stay there again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GPJ1198 Good location
Hotel is well situated next to the Westfield Centre and the city centre. It is very nice inside, rooms are comfortable and the restaurant is good quality but overpriced for me. Wifi available throughout hotel with no charge, which I think should now be standard in all hotels. This is the second time I have stayed here and would stay again, however I had to book on the same day as staying this time and thought it was overpriced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Harpy2112 Clean Hotel. Great Value
We have staid in this hotel several times whilst staying in Derby. You will have to go a long way to find a cleaner hotel in the UK.
The only advice i would give anyone staying is to book your breakfast with your hotel room as you will pay £10 each if you pay on the morning you are there.
Overall i would recommend staying in the executive suites as they are just that bit more special. Your wife or girlfriend will love you for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LorraineWB Overall Good Service but a Key bit of Info Missed
We stayed at Riverlights for 2 nights in Oct 2012 and overall we had a good stay. On check in we were welcomed and given information as to where the best place to park was. Unfortunately a key bit of information was missed with reference to parking in the multi-storey down the road which was that we could get our parking tickets validated meaning we only paid £7 for the night instead of the standard charge of £15. We had already forked out £15 and only found out about being able to validate the tickets when we checked out. The food in the restaurant was good but not out standing for the price. The hotel is in a good central location with shops and a cinema just over the road.
