Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trebor9 Great hotel - shame about the rowdy female guests!
This is a gem of a hotel situated close to the city centre and Pride Park. The staff were very professional and the room was comfortable and modern. The breakfast included in the price was an added bonus and the food on offer was hot and tasty with plenty of it available.
What a shame that rowdy female guests who returned drunk and abusive in the early hours (06/04/14) caused a number of guests to have to complain and the subsequent banging on doors and walls was annoying.
Hotel management should have the powers to remove these types of guests who cause misery to others who are trying to sleep, or at least withold a hefty deposit. Better still call the Police as this is clearly a breach of the peace.

Great place to stay as the hotel meets my needs without any added fuss. Staff are always welcoming and nothing is too much trouble which keeps me coming time and time again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wills1970 Excellent value. Friendly staff.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Arriving nearly 4 hrs before official check in time wasn't a problem. Staff very helpful.
Value for money can't be matched in my opinion. Early check in, parking, wifi and breakfast are often charged at other chains but here was all in the price.
If the only thing my other half had as a criticism was the absence if bacon at breakfast, then it must be good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bazza3000 Good location nice hotel
Stayed in this hotel on my way to a business trip to Chesterfield. The location was pretty good, being very near to Derby rail station but not too near. First impressions were good as the hotel was easy to find and was clean and tidy.
Had a good nights sleep despite being on the ground floor and the only complaint I have about the room is that there are no ironing facilities in the room and I had a business meeting the next day.
The breakfast is awful, luckily it is free because there is no way I would pay for it...powdered eggs ugh!
The hotel is near to some restaurants so I would recommend going to one of those to eat or walk into town.
I would stay again as it is a very convenient stop-off on the way to a couple of my employers offices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perkscan Enjoyed the stay but bed a bit firm
Had a good stay, room would have been OK except the sofa bed was made up so space was limited, also the main bed was a bit too firm for my taste. Good selection for breakfast though some bacon would have been good. Staff very good, location good and nice and quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by anything left!! Great value and quality
We always stay here when visiting relatives in Derbyshire and it is always friendly, clean and comfortable. My only downside is the bed - it is too hard for me to get a full nights sleep on. It needs a soft topper!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pmapp Friendly and Helpful Staff - nice comfy room
We arrived at the hotel way to early for checking (just to enquire about check in time). The friendly lady on reception was unable to check us in (understandably) but did as much as she could to help by taking our bags, and storing them until we returned later in the day - this helped to us out immensely.
The room was very clean and we'll presented - beds were comfy And the bathroom was spotless.
Breakfast choices were better than I expected, while the dining area was pleasant and spacious.
I wouldn't hesitate to book again, and would recommend this hotel to others.

We stay at this hotel regularly because we know we can be guaranteed to receive good service. The rooms are always spotless, the staff are always friendly and polite. The breakfast, while not exciting is always fresh and plenty of it. It is our home away from home when we are visiting our granddaughter. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jackdaw the crow room very clean and well decorated.
Plenty of parking, easy check in and staff very helpful throughout the stay. Had never used key card before so took some time to figure out that you had to press the card in to the card holder and not just lay it in. Shame no bacon at breakfast, but the breakfast choice was excellent and no complaints.
Enjoyed our stay and will use Holiday Inn Express again.

Reception staff most helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was very nice, room was very clean. Free parking was a bonus. Impressed with the bus service into town
bus stop just over the road from hotel, and did not have to wait too long for a bus to arrive.
Overall a very pleasant time, and at a reasonable price, a most enjoyable New Year break, will certainly return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gillybab Very good stay
This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel and we were very satisfied with all aspects of our stay. The rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is about 15 minutes walk into the city centre, lovely to be able to leave the car and not worry about having a drink! There are plenty of nice restaurants in the city centre. I wouldn't recommend using Chiquito's restaurant which is opposite the hotel, the service when we went was so slow and the food when it did eventually arrive wasn't hot and also didn't match the description on the menu. Anyway apart from that hiccup we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Derby. The reception staff at the hotel are very welcoming and go the extra mile to make sure that the guests are happy. Thank you

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vintageep Overnight stay suitable for family of four
We were given a friendly welcome on our arrival by staff, and they were helpful in providing information about suitable dining places (as no in-house dining in the evenings) nearby. later on staff were helpful in providing us with some milk for our toddler's bedtime drink, as we had forgotten to bring some with us.
The room was suitable for our needs, though it was a long and narrow room. If you had gone with a travel cot you would have struggled to erect it in the room other than near the doorway as there was not a lot of space in main sleeping area between the bed and folding out sofa bed.
The bedroom and bathroom were both clean and tidy, with plenty of towels etc for our needs.
The beds were relatively comfortable and we all slept well. No issues with noise.
We liked the fact that you could control the temperature of the room using switch on the wall, as often you stay at places and there is no provision for this.
The breakfast in the morning was of suitable standard and met all of our needs, from those that just wanted cereal to those that wanted something cooked.
Overall a pleasant stay and would recommend as an overnight stop.

We stayed on Boxing Day as we were visiting friends and going to Nottingham for shopping and football.We usually stay in the Travelodge at Chaddesden Park as its nearer to our friends house. We couldn't book that this time so went for the Holiday Inn instead. Turned out to be a great idea and we will use this for future visits to Derby.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Markgt96 Very comfortable bed and comfortable staff and service
I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Express Derby Pride Park as my stay there was very good indeed. The room was very clean and tidy and the staff were more than helpful one lady in particular who helped my girlfriend as she had a very sore throat and the lady thought nothing of helping her with throat sweets. The value for money for the room was very good and the free breakfast was gratefully received the next morning. So in short if you want an affordable and comfortable stay then I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express
