This review is mainly to say the last two times I've ordered nachos here has been a fail. Monday they had run out (boo but can't be helped i guess) and two weeks ago I ate them from here and I can only describe the guacamole tasting of plastic. They were replaced but they'd also run out of sour cream.... More

Booked here for one night in room 219, myself and a friend. Pretty basic but plenty of tea and coffee and also 2 packs of biscuits :-) also 2 complimentary bottles of water which was a nice touch. Bed very comfortable although woken up a few times because of late night revellers but hey if you book into a city... More

I have stayed here before a couple of months ago and it was ok. Good value for money. Myself and six of my colleagues decided to stay again 2nd and 3rd June. I was given a family room, spaciaous and just me in it. Problem was, there was a terrible drainage smell eminating from the bathroom. The following morning I... More

Made last minute booking for Bank holiday weekend and not disappointed. Room was clean and comfortable and overlooking the town square and the lovely Saturday market so excellent location in town centre. Bathroom very small but OK apart from erratic water supply. Only criticism was strange whoosh/clunk noise that went on all day and night and eventually got on nerves!... More

I would recommend this hotel. It is very clean with large, comfortable rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. There are some minor issues, (like the hokey cokey shower that delivers alternate hot and cold water), but nothing that should deter you fom staying. The hotel is extremely well situated for exploring Chesterfield and its' markets as well as having... More

Very reasonable rates, Very friendly and helpful staff, Exceptionally clean, Very central to Chesterfield, safe and secure. On the downside, the water supply to my room 'pulsed' hot and cold, the windows would not shut, there were starlings nesting outside the window, limited parking. I would recommend this hotel if you are having a quick stay in Chesterfield and want... More

Having never stayed above a pub before, we were apprehensive, but got a really good deal rate via Trip Advisor and we were only staying for one night. What a pleasant surprise to find, even though we were on the first floor we experienced a great night's sleep in a spacious room (overlooking the market square- lovely!), with large bathroom,...

If you are travelling and need a good night, easily available food right in the middle of Chesterfield, this Wetherspoons hotel is for you. The service is very friendly, rooms more than adequate but not luxurious and the price very reasonable. Parking is limited but the roadside area at night, even though it has apparent parking restrictions, has always been... More

I stayed over Easter Bank Holiday with my wife and another couple. The room was clean with all the usual amenities. Most importantly the bed a standard double was comfortable. My only complaint being that even Travelodge now provide a king size. However this is a small criticism and we slept well. Now we come to my only real complaint.... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as I was in Chesterfield for a friend's wedding. I arrived late at night to check in and the staff at reception were among the most warm and friendly I have ever met, which was lovely!
