Stayed here one night when away with work. Well decorated and kept very clean and tidy. (Not sure about all the clowns dotted over the ground floor.....) The food was excellent, a nice surprise when on work trips. The chef cooks a meal adhering to your requirements and that's what you get. Fantastic fresh food. Breakfast in the morning was... More

Four of us went to Buckingham’s in Chesterfield for a special family meal and had a well cooked, presented, generally unique and unusual meal. Our requirements regarding allergies and preferences were taken into account as promised. The welcome was adequate but not especially effusive. The food was served, delivered and explained by the chef, but the general table service was... More

This hotel is old and tired, run by Sybil of Fawlty Towers and is a public health risk to anyone who stays in room 4 which is full of dampness!! I would advise anyone thinking of going here to pay heed to the reviews!! I didn't and lived to regret it. The food is undoubtedly excellent, but that does not... More

We stayed for three nights after selecting largely by chance from a list of smaller Chesterfield hotels. Everything was fine with no complaints although we were only able to park on site on two of the nights. But the surprise was the food. The most interesting dinners we have ever eaten. The food was delightful and I doubt there are... More

If you like any sort of freedom. Do not stay here. Our experience here was strange from the start. Upon arriving we were notified that we will only have one key, the only thing the key opens is our room, when we leave the hotel we have to leave our key at the desk so they know if people are...

We stayed here recently it was booked as a gift from our son. First impressions were good the room was ok a little dated but clean. We were a little disappointed with the website which told us we would get a dressing gown only to find they have stopped doing them because people were stealing them. Maybe you should change... More

The food was excellent and the rooms clean, BUT! the landlady puts Basil Fawlty in line for the Hotelier of the year award. The word hotel does not apply to this establishment, it is a Bed and Breakfast! The front door is operated by an intercom system, so when you want to enter the " hotel" you have to ask... More

My husband and I stayed in a lovely bedroom, which was toasty warm and comfortable. The evening meal was prepared, using only foods that we liked (as we were asked to provide a list of foods which we disliked). What we would be given was a mystery, but we were in excellent and capable hands. Nick, the chef, visited our... More

Buckinghams Hotel- what can i say apart from amazing! The hotel itself is pretty from the outside, and clean inside (although the decor wont be to everyones taste). Myself and my friend stopped for 1 night and the real reason for the stay was so that we could dine at the restaurant. We had to decide in advance how many... More

We stayed at Buckingham's some years ago on a trip from our home on the south coast to County Durham. It was as good on our trip in 2014 as it was then. An excellent "surprise" dinner - superb ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented. Comfortable clean bedroom (one needs no more for a good night) and then an excellent breakfast.... More
