      I booked the hotel for my other half to stay in. The reason we booked here was it was the cheapest place with good rating and it was opposite the train staition which my other half needed for getting to work. She said the staff were really nice and you get free wifi in the hotel rooms which was handy.

      When I went in the hotel I found it to be very out dated and in need of modernisation. The room was clean but again needed redecorating as it hadn't been done for years.

      Welcoming staff and well equipped altghough running machine in the small gym was ouit of order

      The fact the bedroom was overlooking a busy road and once traffic started up around 5;30am you could not sleep!

      Very good breakfast.

      Bed rather hard. Soft furnishings in room looking tired & dirty - shame because otherwise very nice hotel and helpful staff.

      Convenience for both rail station (right opposite) and city centre which is a few minutes walk away. Room was fairly small, but had all the usual amenities including quality tv! Price was good for this standard of hotel. Seemed to have been upgraded since my last stay over a year ago.

      Pillows were a bit hard for my taste and a top sheet would have been nice rather than just a heavy quilt in warm weather. The old fashioned lift is a bit of a pain as is going up and down little staircases once you are on the relevent floor for your room - not great when carrying heavy cases!

      Ok Hotel. Very close to the Derby train station, comfortable and nice decoration. Nice breakfast.

      Wireless internet doesn't cover all rooms. They said that they would send me a newspaper in the morning but they didn'T. Very expensive for what you get. If the bar is closed, very early, you won't be able to get even a bottle of water to drink and there's no fridge in the rooms. I had to walk to find a place to buy it.I Recommend this hotel just if you want to stay very close to the station.

      The room was clean and very comfortable.

      We were dumbfounded at being asked to settle our account at check-in. This despite having provided credit card details on booking. Rather than risk paying in advance for what might turn out to be a poor breakfast, we cancelled our breakfast booking.

      The location was perfect and the hotel was both clean and the staff friendly.

      A little noisy, they could do with some from of extra noise protection on the windows!

      The car park was very difficult to find. The timings for meals on the room card were wrong. The room itself was very small and the desk area was almost unworkable. Two out of four lights in the bathroom didn't work. With only two diners in the restaurant all evening it was inconceivable they could mess up the orders. But they did. Once I eventually got the right main course it was, actually, very nice. I did have sympathy for the waiter as he was the same guy that checked me in and served in the bar too.

      As we were meeting overseas visitors who we hadn't seen for 45 years, all we wanted to do was sit and chat, and use the restaurant/bar and the lounge area. The Aston Court was absolutely the right place to do this. The bar/restaurant staff were so obliging and friendly.

      Had a little trepidation drawing into the car park of the 'Aston Court' hotel when we had booked into the 'Smart Aston Court'. Eh?

      The staff were lovely, we did need to ask for another towel as there was only one in left in the room but our stay was lovely. I have stayed several times and would stay again.

      The location is great however if you are a light sleeper it can be a little noisy
