Modern hotel located on the outskirts of Derby
Situated on the city outskirts and bordering the county of Nottinghamshire, the Days Hotel Derby features excellent connections with the M1 and other major routes that traverse the country. As such it’s a convenient hotel for those looking to conduct business in the region or those looking to visit a number of cities and towns in the area.
Consisting of 100 guestrooms, the 3-star property caters for corporate customers and tourists alike. En-suite bathrooms with a number of complimentary toiletries are included as standard as are a number of other facilities. Guests can expect satellite television with pay-per-view movies, fast internet connections (which are free in public areas), a work desk, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, and telephone.
‘Workzone’ rooms are aimed at business guests. These include a number of extras additional to standard rooms. Amongst these is an extra work desk, complimentary snacks, safe which comfortably fits most brands of laptop computer, and an iron and ironing board.
Corporate guests can also make use of the hotel’s inexpensive conferencing room which includes audio visual equipment, stationary, air conditioning, and the options of lunch, snacks, and refreshments. Within comfortable distance of Derby railway station, the hotel is a convenient location for delegates travelling for the north or south.
A large restaurant also serves the Days Hotel Derby. Guests can enjoy a buffet breakfast during the morning whilst a wider ranged menu features during evening dining. A lounge and bar also provides a fine setting for relaxation or meeting with friends. Major sporting events are displayed on big screens for those that enjoy the armchair fans perspective.
Sporting fans needn’t remain in the hotel though. Pride Park, home of Derby County Football Club, is just a few moments away, whilst Derbyshire County Cricket ground lies right beside the hotel. The neighbouring cities of Leicester and Nottingham also include a range of teams to watch in a variety of sports. Leicester is home to one of the country’s best rugby union teams, whilst Nottingham houses the National Ice Stadium and Trent FM Arena, home of the Nottingham Panthers ice hockey club.
For something a little more refined, visitors can enjoy the spectacle of Derby Cathedral. As well as being a building of historic merit, the Cathedral is also famous for its breeding peregrine falcons that reside in the towers. So much is the fame of these birds that they are monitored via webcams.
One of Derby’s more unique visitor attractions is its gaol museum. Located in the dungeons of the old Vernon House Prison, this museum looks back at some 250 years of criminal activity within the town, focusing on the five historic gaols within the region.
As well as a number of other historical buildings, Derby’s city centre also features a large shopping district, as well as a variety of pubs, bars, and nightclubs, perfect for the night owls out there. A host of restaurants also ensures that there is plenty of option when it comes to dining, should guests not wish to dine at the Days Hotel Derby.
