Accommodation good - food and service poor
Cottage room was good and was able to park vehicle outside front door. The Dragon PH next door where one is served with breakfast (at an extra charge) is despite being a reward winning establishment is poor regarding food and service is very slow. This may be partly due to it being a very popular drink pub by the canal. Would stay in the Cottage again but eat elsewhere, probably in Repton (The Boot).

Clean and comfortable stay
Stayed here before, loved the rooms, so comfortable, clean and modern. Bed is really big but so comfy slept well. Breakfast was in the pub, very nice, good choices just what we needed before our journey home would recommend these cottages, lovely setting, vibrant atmosphere, lovely food.

Excellent place to stay in Derby
Really excellent stay at The Cottage, had a six day stay in Derby and have tried numerous different hotels on previous visits from both chain and independents. The Cottage is the best so far. Nicely decorated spacious room that was very comfortable and clean, iron in the room which is always very useful, large quality bed, good ensuite. Food at The Dragon next door is also very good, having eaten there four or five times during the stay, all occasions excellent, especially breakfast, staff all friendly and professional. Location is fine for getting into Derby, it took 10 minutes to the centre by car but nice to be just out of the City centre. Sometimes places just get all of the things that make a good night's stay right - and The Cottage is one of those places!

C is for communication
We have stayed here four times now. This could be the last. Cleaners knocked on the door at 10am and the website said it was 11am. The menu at he dragon, next door was ok, but written in a way that we got overcharged. Communication is at fault here. The bar staff said the cleaners got it wrong and the waitress said the bar manager got it wrong. Doh!
