Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pete S uncomfortable bed and very poor breakfast
I have been travelling all over the world on business for over 20 years and the bed was the softest I have ever experienced. It was like a sponge and very uncomfortable. The executive room however was very good and well fitted out. Breakfast was very very disappointing. It was obviouse there were not many guests at the hotel. We had breakfast at 0900 and it looked like the scrambled eggs, sausages, tomatoes, in fact just about everything, had been out since breakfast started at 0630.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sabs Where is the car park ?
Lovely Hotel. Nice n quiet. Checked the instructions on where to park but could I find it, no. It's not opposite the hotel as it quotes. it's out of the hotel door and turn left. If you car is facing left, you are laughing but assume you will come into the hotel in the opposite way if you are following sat nav. You actually go past the hotel (on your right# and get to a roundabout shortly afterwards and go all the way round, heading back past the hotel, You are now facing the way to the car park. Go past the hotel #now on your left#, through one set of lights, past the bus station, straight on under a bridge #building), to the next lights. Turn left and car park entrance is just round the corner. About a 3-5 minute drive. Park and walk back to the hotel. Hotel is great for the city center. Hotel stamps your parking ticket in the morning and adds it to your invoice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xenia Warm welcome
Arrived quite late after a long day, and was welcomed at the reception desk and given information about where to find a good Asian restaurant which turned out to be a short walk away. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large, airy and well equipped and the bathroom too. Great place to stay and very convenient for the Westfield Shopping Centre !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KizzyTheDuck Very clean and spacious room with everything you need for a nice stay.
Stayed for a weekend recently and found the hotel to be in centre of town which was ideal for our visit. Had a nice quiet room which suited our purpose.
Staff very friendly though not very knowledgable about the surrounding area.
Would definately stay again though.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SpicyChillie Unclean bath, problem in shower and No hot water
When I checked in on Monday, i saw that the bath tub wasnt emptied, no toilet rolls and just a single towel. When I went for a shower, i realised that the water from the shower wasn't draining correctly. Told the staff who mentioned that this would be corrected. On wednesday morning, there was no hot water! Somehow managed to take a shower and told the staff about this. I would have expected this to be fixed, but on Thursday morning, the water was colder and I just couldn't have a shower! There was also a new problem along with this one... The tub started getting filled with water from the drain!!! I decided to shorten my stay and checked out a day earlier. Horrible experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lashes Clean and friendly hotel
We all had a lovely time, and my two chihuahuas... the staff were so friendly and welcoming! Would recommend staying here again and slept well, the rooms are great are very good value for money. It's fantastic to find such an immaculate hotel that's dog friendly!! The only downside was no parking.

The rooms at Riverlights Derby are the most sound proof I have ever stopped in ,The cleaners never wake me up or the noise of people walking by, the staff are very nice and always happy. food great too.
I recommend riverlights 10 out of 10

As usual, Holiday Inn Riverlights in Derby was clean, comfortable, the staff were friendly, easy to reserve a room and breakfast was good. Also I have now discovered you can go running along the canal just behind the hotel on a route which is lit up in the morning and at night. Would really recommend this Holiday Inn for any stay in Derby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kevd66 Good hotel, nice staff but has problems
Disappointed that the door key system had failed for the second time this year. Staff gallantly did their best to ensure they opened rooms for guests, but it was highly inconvenient as even the lift requires a valid room key for floors 2 and 3. There is clearly no back-up system nor was there any sense of urgency to get the system working again. Many guests were angry and annoyed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dave275 Noisy ventilation system at night
I stayed here mid October and was woken twice during the night at 1:30am and 4:30am by a noisy ventilation system in the room. Not impressed.
If that hadn't have happened I would have enjoyed my stay.

Nicely designed hotel with city views from the restaurant and from the room we had on the upper floor. Breakfast very good with buffet items renewed regularly. Efficient, friendly reception staff. Good city centre location with nearby multi-story car park.

As a regular visitor for football weekends we have always found this to be a special place to stay. The central location, the pleasant accommodating staff and as a platinum IHG member there is always a room available when we arrive early with the option of an extended checkout when required.

I stay frequently at the HI Derby. The rooms are consistently well appointed and the bed linen has a homely feel. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. Food and beverages are above average. Overall I certainly recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peter1968 Centrally located
Clean, centrally located, parking in nearby shopping mall is a bit uncomfortable due to distance. Hotel is next door to bus terminal. Noise from reverting buses can be disturbing. Ask for room in oposit direction!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gwb21 Dirty and unhygienic quilt cover.
continue--- Could not dim the glow from the TV screen , by using the remote control. Therefore the room could not darkened properly during hours of sleep. Distant music noise could also be heard in the early hours .
Booked the stay at the hotel reception on 4/9/2013 and room 318 was reserved and a note made not to be moved.
On arrival on 26/9/2013 ,signed the arrival form headed room 318 and allocated room 343, which was not acceptable,then given 334 ,as did not want to have to travel home at 20-00 hours.
No reason could be given regarding the initial room alteration.
27/9/2013,PM,moved to room 317, where experienced above room happenings.
28/9/2013 20-00 hours checked out a day early as was not going put up with the described above.

The service was excellent and the accommodation was modern, clean and tidy. The food was lovely if a little over priced for the portion size. Derby isn't the nicest city I've ever had cause to visit but if you do need to be there this hotel is well placed for most things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ferrie superb travel hotel
We used this hotel as a stop off between Glasgow and Cornwall. We booked an executive room and the extra cost was well worth the money. Superb new hotel very centrally located. Discount parking at multi storey car park across the road. (£7.50 for 24 hrs.) It is a 5 minute walk to the hotel so if possible drop off passengers and cases first then park. Friendly staff, very large room, peaceful and secure. Bedroom, seating area and bathroom all very well equipped. We booked this as a travel hotel but would happily use a hotel of this standard for a full holiday break. Faultless and highly recommended.

I booked online as a. Platinum member. None of the benefits I was entitled to were offered nor available. No apology given until I complained on check out. Customer service was the worst I have had in the many Holiday Inn hotels I have used around the world.

Not just here but I have recently discovered that many Holiday Inn hotels offer weekend (Fri/Sat) rates comparable with "budget" hotels. My rate didn't include breakfast so I went up on-spec but was not going to pay £13 for a buffet. MdDonalds 5 minutes walk so no big dea!
