Chuckles Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 24 Derby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2015

It is impossible to feel anything other than utter happiness when you visit Chuckles guest house. I stayed here mid-week for regular Derby business trips during 2015. Glenn and Nina are very welcoming and easygoing. I received the same amount of empathy and attention every week at Chuckles than I do when I occasionally visit my parents in Scotland! At the same time I didn't feel like I was staying in someone else's house... there's a good balance between personal space, as you would expect from a professional business, and the personal touch.

The only challenging thing here is the on street parking, but I think it's something you'll find in almost all built up areas. I'd say the very central location, plenty of nearby multi-story car parks and Nina's sharp eye for parking wardens make up for the hassle.

There is obviously a huge amount of pride and attention that has gone into the décor (Glenn's artistic background is apparent in every detail), the layout, the linen, the heated tiles in the bathroom, the walk in waterfall shower... but most of all.... the breakfast. Oh the breakfast! You can choose for anything to be cooked, most of which will be organic, fresh and absolutely delicious. I'm well travelled and like to explore new food places so it was a brilliant surprise to find this little gem in Derby.

Go and stay here... immediately!

Room Tip: I like the attic room because it is quiet. I slept with the window open to see the stars.

Thank you again to the team at Chuckles, I've stayed here several times and it's always relaxed vibe and great breakfasts. Really can't recommend it enough to anyone looking for something special in Derby. I'll be back!

Hospitality, room, food, location, showers, toilet; all brilliant. This is a lovely place to stay. As I was visiting to attend Derby's great photography festival, Format, I also appreciated many of the interesting photographs and prints on the walls. I'm writing this Sunday evening, quite tired but happy after a lovely weekend.

Room Tip: I only saw one room. Oak beam and interesting sloping ceiling and a desk. I was more than happy with...

Chuckles guest house is a lovely friendly and welcoming guesthouse. My room was warm and always cozy and clean. The showers and toilets were always really clean and spotless. It is in a really convenient location with a two minute walk from the shops and the bus station. The breakfasts were always delicious with a variety to choose from to cater for all tastes. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it.

We had such a warm welcome from Nina and Glenn. They really did live up to all the fabulous reviews they have received so far. We got a little lost finding the place due to an old satnav and Nina came out and guided us back to the guesthouse. The rooms were very clean, very comfy and tea, coffee and tv facilities were available. Shared shower rooms were very modern and very clean with lovely little additional touches. Breakfast was GORGEOUS! Very highly recommended guesthouse.. Would definitely stay again!! Thanks for a fab stay xxx
