Our Holiday Inn® Derby hotels make a great base for exploring Derby and the mossy hills of the nearby countryside. Learn about the city's role in the Industrial Revolution in the Derby Industrial Museum or get away from it all in the magnificent Peak District.
Book a stay at one of our hotels in Derby to immerse yourself in the area's industrial history. The modern factory system was born here at the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, where milling developed into an industrial process powered by water. Take a thorough look at the industrial manufacturing process at the Derby Industrial Museum. Just a short drive from our Derby hotels, the erosion of local limestone has created a landscape of moorland and river valleys in the Peak District. On your drive around the district, be sure to tour the manicured grounds of Chatsworth House, one of the country's finest manor homes and the repository of a collection of Old Master drawings and priceless furniture.
Watch peregrine falcons soar and swoop around the spire of Derby Cathedral just minutes from our Derby hotels in the center of the city. The city center holds Derby's best selection of restaurants and bars, particularly along Friar Gate. Outside of Derby the charming villages of the Peak District boast traditional pubs selling ales made in the region and from farther afield. For local delicacies, visit Bakewell, home of the Bakewell Pudding, an almond, jam and egg tart invented right here in the village.
Book a room in one of our Holiday Inn Derby hotels to discover the city where the industrial era was born and explore the landscape of rivers and moorland in the nearby Peak District.

As we arrived at the hotel on a Friday and stayed until Monday morning no evening meals were available. The addition of the provision of evening meals would have made our visit more enjoyable. Our[More] group included 7 adults and 2 children. A meal in the hotel would have saved us having to find somewhere to eat in a strange town.[Less]
Great location as we wanted somewhere close to the NEC. Would stay there again.[Less]
Good overnight stay
great, did what it said on the tin. Comfortable clean room and good breakfast ahead of a trip to the local theme park[Less]
A lovely break in Stafford
We come to visit old friends several times a year who live in Stafford and have stayed in may places in and around Stafford. After our first stay at the Holiday Inn Express decided not to stay[More] anywhere else. Its is perfect for our needs[Less]
