Thank you Viv for taking the time to post this lovely review - we look forward to seeing you again soon (hopefully!) , Glenn & Nina
We first stayed here for the inaugural Derby Book Festival (organised by a friend) a year ago.
It was such a pleasant experience that when arranging to come up for the book festival again this year, there was no question about where we would stay.
Nina and Glenn are such friendly and helpful hosts that it felt like we were staying at a friends house rather than a guesthouse.
The breakfast has been delicious on all occasions (the special prunes are delicious!) and my vegetarianism and our preference for soya milk have never been the slightest problem.
On our last stay we had a great chat with some friends (that we had convinced should stay here) and one of the other guests over breakfast. It was a very pleasant way to start the day!
The location is perfect for the festival, so we're looking forward to staying here many times in the future!
Thank you, we are very grateful to you for taking the time to post this lovely review and hopefully the book festival will run for many years to come. It was a pleasure seeing you both again and look forward to next year. Best wishes Glenn & Nina
I have stayed at Chuckles several times, must recently last weekend, and have always enjoyed my stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The shower and toilet rooms are also very clean and showers nice and hot and powerful, with shampoo and soap. I love the breakfast here! I have the continental style (there is cooked breakfast too), which sets me up well for the day, including home made jam. Centrally located within Derby, very handy for the Download music festival :) Also very reasonably priced. I look forward to my next stay!
Thank you lovely, it's always great to see you and delighted you enjoyed your breakfasts. Look forward to (hopefully) seeing you next year, Glenn & Nina
Another warm & heart warmingly friendly welcome greeted us as soon as we arrived stayed here last year & wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Derby!!!!! you couldn't wish for any better hosts than Glenn & Nina they are absolutely fantastic!!!!! Lovely tidy clean rooms tea/coffee making facilities, tv, free wifi. Breakfasts absolutely gorgeous choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, fruit juice, varieties of warm or cold breakfasts, followed by toast with homemade jam beautiful!!!!! Lovely hot refreshing showers. Real home from home!!!!
Thank you for the lovely review. It really was a pleasure to see you both again. Next year I'll try a better sun dance for you ☀️☀️
Excellent rooms,bathrooms,food and hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for Nina and Glen and the little touches such as shoe shine wipes,individual hand towels in the toilets and their willingness to accommodate any reasonable request such as a hairdryer,iron and ironing board made this a truly enjoyable stay. After 2 nights it felt like we leaving friends behind. The breakfasts were fantastic,locally grown fruit, a perfect cooked breakfast and my son's favourite,kippers. All beautifully presented with plenty of options to suit anyone.If I need to stay in Derby again,this will definitely be the place I go to. Well done Nina and Glen,absolutely first rate.
Thank you Sarah; as I said we really to appreciate our guests taking the time to post reviews for us, particularly when they are a glowing as yours! :) It was a real pleasure to see you and your family and really do hope we see you again. All best wishes, Glenn & Nina
Nina and Glenn were amazing the booking was nice and simple and as soon as I arrived I was greated by Nina who is so lovely I stay for a weekend whilst visiting a friend who they also welcomed for breakfast. We are both lactose intolerant so they had gone out and brought milk, butter and yoghurt for my stay. Amazing. The rooms are beautiful and really comfortae. Close to the town. I will be back in the future for my next visit to Derby.
Thank you so much Zoe, we are always incredibly grateful when one of our guests takes the time to write a review, particularly when it is such a glowing one! :) We hope you do manage to get back to Derby and look forward to seeing you again. With best wishes, Nina & Glenn
