“Grubby and stained! Over priced for product offered”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

After previously staying there before I thought yes we stay there again as room was lovely so was expecting high standards upon on current stay. Well far from it hotel inspector would have a field day hairs, stained unchanged sheets, dust that you could right your name in, hair dye on shower wall, crusty used tissue attached to toilet seat attachments, skirting boards black fluff and for a non smoking room smelt of tabacco smoke, carpet in need of a good hoover or even deep clean, coffee stains on wall.... Do I need to go on. Ok staff were very good and gave full refund but am deeply shocked I now have had to source different accomodation. Its a shame as I was looking forward to having a nice break away and was looking forward to having a nice meal but cleanliness is a higher priorty.

Having travelled to Chesterfield on business regularly for the past 18 years I've stayed at all the hotels in the area. For the past couple of years the Olde House has been my first choice.
Very good value for money. The rooms are all all clean and a good size and include all you need, including a great TV.
The owners and staff are all very welcoming and make it feel like a home from home.
I tend not to eat in hotel restaurants whilst I'm away, but it's so handy at the Olde House and there's no need to travel anywhere else once you check in.

We went to the Olde House for a funeral wake. The food provided was excellent, as was the drink.
I had damaged the tyres on my car,on the journey over to Chesterfield..The ladies at reception tried several repair companies for me, but unfortunately it was too late & every one was closed.
They really went out of their way to help us.
A "Very Well done" to those ladies.
With staff like that, I would return any day

Stayed Saturday 9th June. very reasonable price for the room which was very clean and well maintained. The price included an excellent breakfast. Very busy place with two function rooms though this didnt spoil our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This place is part of the Marstons chain and is a very good ambassador for them. Credit to them for their honesty in keeping to the published price list, Elton John was playing at the local football ground that evening and some hotels were charging up to £400 for that night!
A good base to explore Chesterfield or a good jump off point for the Derbyshire Peaks.

Room Tip: There is a lift to the first floor rooms though this was out of action on our stay

This hotel is basically a dozen or so rooms attached to a much enlarged pub/restaurant on the outskirts of Chesterfield.

That said, everything about Olde House was excellent and much better than expected.

The welcome by Julie was warm and sincere with everything explained regarding meals and accommodation including the best place to park to be nearest the room etc.

The room itself was modern, clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated. Bathroom was large and well fitted, although the shower screen seemed to leak slightly on the floor.

The restaurant was large and busy. The staff were attentive and willing although lacking a little finesse and experience. The food was far better than average with a well thought out menu and good sized portions. The only disappointment was the Bread & Butter pudding that tasted more like a sponge cake than the name suggested.

I would definitely stay and eat here again finding it excellent value for money.

Stayed here for one night after the Elton John concert at the new stadium; easy walking distance so very convenient. We received a very warm welcome and this friendly service was a real feature of our short stay. We also appreciated the comfy bed and a nice breakfast before setting off the next morning.
