Dated accommodation expensive but clean and attached to hotel if needed for meals. Friendly staff. Parking outside the unit is a challenge. Entrance gates locked at night but accessible with a code. Gardening not a priority.

We (group of four) were in Derby filming a television series and were recommended the Derby Inn. The rooms were a pleasant surprise from our first impressions on arrival, and were nice and spacious - ideal for our couple of nights stay in town. The meals in the restaurant were very nice too.

We were here 6 years ago and thought we would call in for a cold beverage. It's changed a lot atmosphere is run down and drink prices over inflated our friends had a pint of beer each at the cost of $24 for 2. Cider in the bottle was a bit more realistic at $6.60.

We stayed 2 nights in a motel unit, the room was quite large with queen bed and a good sized modern TV. It had a good split system A/C which was quiet and well appreciated. Jug, toaster, MW and fridge were provided. A small table and chairs would have been an asset, as we had to sit on the bed... More

I would recommend this place especially after having to walk away from a place we had booked months earlier. Basic comfortable rooms good bar area good cold draught beer and quality meals. Rate this as exceptional value. Great after our earlier experience elsewhere.

We chose this place for its convenience. So pleased that we did. Against some of the reports here, I chose the beef with Guiness pie, my hubby had a boab burger. As an entree we had the lemon squid. Superb, so tender, served with a lovely fresh salad. My pie was incredible, beautiful flavour and the meat was so tender.... More
