Positive Reviews

Staff do Lots of Extras to Make a Stay Enjoyable

The staff at the Holiday Inn Derby-Riverlights does everything for guests including booking future stays if needed, providing information about local attractions and events and making special arrangements to have meals delivered at times outside of normal restaurant hours. Staff members are always smiling and willing to go above and beyond for guests.

Guest Rooms are Clean and Quiet

Everything in the room is very clean and the rooms themselves, including the bathrooms, are huge. The décor is tasteful, the beds are comfortable and the shower has lots of water pressure. The rooms must also be soundproof because they are very quiet.

Perfectly Situated in the Centre of the City

Holiday Inn Derby-Riverlights is located right in the middle of the city and provides easy access to nearby attractions and various public transportation hubs. Despite its central location, the area is surprisingly quiet and relaxing.

Negative Reviews

The Hotel and Guest Rooms are Very Noisy

Some guests have reported malfunctioning air conditioning units in the rooms that make a loud buzzing noise that hampers sleep quality. Other guests have reported that their rooms were above the bar/casino and the music is so loud, it makes the walls vibrate and the beds shake.

Staff Members Don’t Want to Deal with Guests

When issues with rooms or bills are brought to the staff’s attention, they are indifferent and don’t want to deal with it. Some guests have reported mix-ups that resulted in guests being sent to already-occupied rooms and bogus bill charges.

Shabby Rooms with Uncomfortable Beds

The guest rooms at Holiday Inn Derby-Riverlights are in need of some care. Guests have reported old and tattered carpet and furnishings, lots of dust, uncomfortable beds and malfunctioning key-cards.
