“We’re honoured that football legend Nigel Clough officially opened our hotel today. Our staff are huge supporters of him and the Derby County team and it was very exciting to have him here to cut the ribbon. Since opening our doors just over a month ago we have been focused on becoming a central part of the local community and we are very happy to be partnering with Derby County Football Club and Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance.”
The £20 million hotel, which has 213 bedrooms and five dedicated conference rooms, has been welcomed by the local community and proved to be a huge success since opening last month.
