The Days Inn chain of hotels is primarily an American one but they do have about 30 properties around the UK. The Days Hotel in Derby is located right beside the Derbyshire County Cricket Club so it is ideal if you are visiting for a game, as I was. It is however about 15 minutes walk away from the town centre and there is no public transport close-by.
The property has a bit of a motel feel to it, fairly basic but clean and quite new looking. The well decorated rooms are small but comfortable with a writing desk, chairs and a TV. The bathroom has a great shower with plenty of room. A rather disturbing sign on the bathroom door says “Please close the door when taking a shower as the steam can activate the fire alarm”. I had visions of hoards of half naked people rushing out into the car park at 8.00am but thankfully it never happened.
They have a small restaurant area for breakfast and evening meals and there is an American style restaurant called Damon’s next door. Decent value for money, around £190 for a single room with king size bed for three nights, breakfast is extra at about £7. I’d certainly consider staying there again if I was going to watch cricket but might also try to find something a bit more convenient for the centre.
Directions: You will need to drive into the grounds of the cricket club to get to the hotel.
