Jurys Inn Hotel Derby, Video Guide to location etc etc

The Jurys Inn Derby Hotel is located on King Street, Derby, Derbyshire, UK
The post code is : DE1 3DB
This Derby hotel is located in Derby's Cathedral Quarter, it has 213 rooms and opened in July 2009.

If you are going to see a band play at the Flower Pot pub then this has to be the best hotel to stop in as its just across the road from the venue.
Its also handy for anything in the City as when you come out of the Hotel entrance you are looking at the top of Queen Street where Derby Cathedral is located. If you then walk down Iron Gate you reach Derby's Market Place where you will find the Assembly Rooms and The Quad. Derby Westfield shopping centre is just a few minutes walk away up St Peters Street.

The nearest car park to the Jurys Inn Derby Hotel is Chapel street which as you can see in my video is just a 2 minute walk away.

One unique point that this hotel has is a view of the Peregrine Falcon nest on Derby Cathedral. You can see a live streaming video of this nest on my Derby webcam page :

I can't personally recommend any specific hotels in Derby as I have never stopped in a hotel in Derby because I live here :)
What I would advice is that you firstly have a good look around their website to see what the hotel has to offer and secondly use a Hotel review website such as TripAdvisor. Trip Advisor was established in 2000, it's a website that allows customers to rate and review hotels they stop in, even allowing them to post photographs they have taken at the hotel.

When using hotel review sites such as Trip Advisor, you have to remember that everyone's idea of what constitutes a "good hotel" is different.
Some people expect all the extra features that luxury hotels have to offer such as spas and concierge car parking. Then there are other people that just expect somewhere cheap and comfortable, this is why you need to read all the reviews on TripAdvisor for the hotel you want to stop in rather than just one or two people that may not like the hotel. Remember not everyone's the same as you!

You can sometimes save money by booking through other websites such as trivago and laterooms.com but the best way to save is to book your room in advance as much as possible.

My Derby website :

ORGANISERS of an abseil down one of Derby's tallest buildings hope to raise £1,000 more than they did during last year's event. It is the fourth time the Sight Support Derbyshire charity has organised the challenge at the 110ft Jurys Inn hotel, in King Street. Last year, people raised more than £3,000 by taking part in the event. This will take place from 10am on Saturday 8th September 2012. Hope this helps
