I went with a friend and it included free robes and slippers (you get to keep the slippers which is handy!) the changing rooms do need an update -there was a leaky...

Had a ok stay at the Derbyshire Hotel with my girlfriend. We had a one night stay and the standard of the hotel is ok. The rooms are very tidy and the staff very friendly. Definitely worth a stay and close to the M1 junction 28.
